who you gonna call?

a spanking new nbc/wall street journal poll has some bad news for the party of no. right now, the country's trust lies with the party in power:

further poll results show obama's favorable ratings (68%) at an all-time high, something pollster peter hart finds extraordinary:
"What is amazing here is how much political capital Obama has spent in the first six weeks and against that, he stands at the end of this six weeks with as much or more capital in the bank. It is an amazing feat in terms of what Barack Obama has accomplished against the most difficult terrain one could imagine."
and obama's positive numbers don't end there.

54% of those surveyed say he has the right policies for the country, 57% percent support the stimulus package, 67% percent feel more hopeful thanks to his leadership, and they give him a 60% job approval rating.

on the other end of the spectrum, the country blames the previous administration (56%) and republicans in congress (41%) for the state of the economy, and gives the republican party an all-time low favorablity rating (26%.)
