President Obama had a fairly flat month in the polls. His approval rating slipped back half a point, and his disapproval rating stayed unchanged from last month. While his approval stayed above his disapproval for the month, the gap between the two is smaller than it's ever been.
Forget all the political commentary over the last three weeks: the fact is, the killing of bin Laden helped Obama. Not as much as the White House would like, nor as little as Republicans would like to think.
