Obama Approval Hits 1-Month High in Gallup Poll

Looking at the latest results from Gallup, Barack Obama's approval rating currently stands at 54 percent, with 38 percent disapproving. This marks the President's best rating in Gallup polling in nearly a month (since September 4, to be exact), both in terms of approval rating and margin between approval and disapproval.
The movement, of course, is at the margin -- indeed within the margin of error. But if the numbers were moving in the other direction -- say if Barack Obama's approval rating hit 49 percent in Gallup polling -- wouldn't there be a siren on Drudge?
