New CNN Poll: Support for Libya jumps but no bounce for president

Washington (CNN) - Support for U.S. military action in Libya has skyrocketed nearly 20 points in the wake of this week's events in Tripoli, but most Americans don't see the rebel advances in Libya as a victory for the United States, according to a new national survey.

And a CNN/ORC International Poll released Friday also indicates that while President Barack Obama's approval rating on Libya has grown, his overall job rating has not budged.

CNN Poll: Northeast least prepared for emergency

Washington (CNN) – Roughly half of all Americans say they have made some preparations for an emergency like a hurricane, according to a new national survey. But unfortunately, a CNN/ORC International Poll released Friday indicates that the regions that are least likely to be prepared are urban areas in the Northeast, and many of them may be in the path of Hurricane Irene.

According to the survey, 45 percent of all Americans say they have a stockpile of food and water in their homes in case of a terrorist attack or a natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. Those figures are highest in the South and the West - where hurricanes and earthquakes are most frequent - but only 36 percent of Northeasterners say they have emergency supplies of food and water.

Romney on top of the pack in Florida as debate nears

(CNN) - Two and a half weeks before the first Republican presidential debate in Florida, a new poll indicates that Mitt Romney leads the pack in the battle for the GOP nomination.

According to a Sachs/Mason-Dixon survey, 28 percent of likely Republican primary voters in Florida say they support Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who's making his second bid for the GOP nomination, with 21 percent backing Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who earlier this month launched a run for the White House.

Bachmann's warning to South Carolina voters

Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) – Rep. Michele Bachmann was firing on all cylinders Thursday evening, dismissing competitors' management experience and laid out, in dire terms, how the 2012 presidential race is a "last chance election" and why she's the only candidate who has the chops to make the U.S. "the big dog" in the world.

The congresswoman from Minnesota, who secured a first place finish in a crucial Iowa straw poll two weeks ago, trails Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the latest national Gallup poll sizing up the Republican field.

CNNMoney: Market wants Bernanke to be Mighty Mouse
[A] lot of this week's market "strength" has largely been attributed to investor hopes that Bernanke will offer up more help for the stagnant economy. It's as if investors think he's Mighty Mouse. Or, at a bare minimum, Andy Kaufman lip-syncing to Mighty Mouse. "Here I come to save the day!" …So can Bernanke live up to the hype?
