CNN releases some more data from its latest poll. Obama's favorable rating has ticked up to 54 percent, but that may still be due to his "bin Laden bounce." Sixty-five percent of adults approve of the job he's doing combating terrorism and 55% approve of his handling of the war in Afghanistan. But a majority of Americans disapprove of Obama's handling of Medicare (53%), taxes (53%), the economy (58%), health care policy (57%), the federal budget deficit (64%), and gas prices (73%).

If the killing of Osama bin Laden is what's propping up Obama's poll numbers, how long can that last?
