Obama's Osama-bounce gone 

If you blinked, you missed it. President Obama’s six point post-Osama bump in the Gallup daily tracking poll is gone. Today’s rolling average number, posted at 1 pm, shows Obama back down to his pre-bump 46% approval rating.

The Friday before President Obama announced that Navy SEALs had kill Osama bin Laden (April 28), Gallup’s presidential-approval tracking poll had him at 46%. Gallup’s first available three-day rolling average sample after Osama’s death was Thursday, May 5, and measured Obama’s approval rating at 52%.

This is not terribly surprising considering thatjust last Monday, Pew found 2/3s of the 9 point Osama-bump they measured, had already disappeared (47% to 50% to 50%).
