Here's Bill O'Reilly last night dismissing “one poll” finding that a majority of Americans approved of the way President Obama handled last month's attempted terrorist attack:

And there's a perception growing among people who are not committed to President Obama, Independents, maybe conservative Democrats as well, that the guy is just not handling the job properly. Am I wrong?
CAROLINE HELDMAN, PH.D., POLITICS PROFESSOR: Well, first off, I think it's important to note that a majority of Americans did like the way that he handled the terrorist possibility on.
