POLL: Will Hurricane Sandy Help Obama?

Vote in our poll by sharing your thoughts in the comments field below.

A Washington Post/ABC poll released this week showed that 80 percent of voters feel President Obama has done a good job dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Even New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – a staunch supporter of Mitt Romney – praised Obama's response to the storm, which devastated parts of New Jersey and New York and caused serious damage in many other states, including Massachusetts.

Obama also received the endorsement of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Thursday, with Bloomberg citing Obama's handling of Hurricane Sandy as one of the main reasons he decided to support the president.

Meanwhile, Romney's previous pledge to abolish FEMA hasn't helped him in the wake of the storm.

What do you think? Will Hurricane Sandy and the way President Obama has handled the situation help him come Election Day? Or do you think it won't make any difference at all? Vote by leaving a comment with your thoughts.

Atleast they would have to talk to each other--which has NOT been happening for far too many years ! I hope we, the American people start demanding more bipartisanship , I have seen the government at work close up-it's a pretty sad commentary on all of us for allowing it to go on so long ,and,. It goes on in BOTH parties. I hope everyone will vote !!

Aron Levy . . . are you related to George Soros? I could care less if YOU or anyone else has a difficult time believing the TRUTH. Facts speak for themselves . . . CPUSA has endorsed Obama. Truth. Obama is NOT the first African American President. He is the FIRST Arab 'american' president who's family sold slaves. OMG! = Obama Must Go!

Signs of Narciccism:An obvious self-focus in interpersonal exchanges Problems in sustaining satisfying relationships A lack of psychological awareness (see insight in psychology and psychiatry, egosyntonic) Difficulty with empathy Problems distinguishing the self from others (see narcissism and boundaries) Hypersensitivity to any insults or imagined insults (see criticism and narcissists, narcissistic rage and narcissistic injury) Vulnerability to shame rather than guilt Haughty body language Flattery towards people who admire and affirm them (narcissistic supply) Detesting those who do not admire them (narcissistic abuse) Using other people without considering the cost of doing so Pretending to be more important than they really are Bragging (subtly but persistently) and exaggerating their achievements Claiming to be an "expert" at many things Inability to view the world from the perspective of other people Denial of remorse and gratitude

A president's actions during or after a storm or other natural disasters is part of his minimum job requirements. He did nothing special. The storm issues are no where near solved and it will not be known for months if he did the minimum job in NY/NJ or not. He has merely talked the talk so far. Since it's the only potential thing he accomplished in 4 full years and it was part of a put-on show during his final hours to gain votes, Americans see right through it. I am a libertarian and do not support either candidate, but I predict Romney winning by 12%.
