POLL: Will Hurricane Sandy Help Obama?

Does his role in the federal reaction to a disaster help the president? Or is that a craven way to look at politics? 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 New Hampshire.

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 in our poll below by leaving a comment with your thoughts.

Did you forget that Reverend Wright (Obama's best Church buddy for over 20yrs) said "God Damn America" ????

Janet, That he did. Years ago. Your comment has no bearing on the discussion. President Obama is not respinsible for what other people say.
