President Obama’s numbers are looking good, especially with US Troops in Afghanistan


President Obama’s number are looking good right now, even with the Republican’s negative propaganda campaigns.

POTUS is almost 50/50 in his approval ratings that show 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of the President’s performance.

Also, this week it was reported he was close to his goal with sign-ups for the Affordable Care before the deadline, despite the early website problems.

But the biggest number that people may not know about is “0”…zero, zilch, nada.

That comes from the Pentagon which says there were no U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan in March — the first zero-fatality month there since January 2007.

American casualties in Afghanistan have declined as the number of U.S. forces has grown smaller and their role has shifted away from combat. U.S. troops are focused on training and advising Afghan forces.

The Pentagon says there are about 33,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan, down from a 2011 peak of about 100,000.  The international combat mission is scheduled to end in December; whether a new mission to train Afghans is undertaken in January has yet to be decided.
