The recent assassination of Osama bin Laden under the leadership of President Barack Obama has brought a sense of justice to many Americans, particularly those who were affected by the horrific acts of 9/11.

And with the 2011 presidential election just months away, the unasked question on many minds is: ‘Will the recent murder of Osama bin Laden boost Obama’s approval rating?’

This may be a question for many, but for me it is a certainty.

The death of Osama bin Laden will positively increase President Barack Obama’s approval ratings.

Americans have lived in fear for a decade, nervously anticipating another act of terror by bin Laden, but now that he is dead, the country has breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Not surprisingly, President Obama is reaping the benefits of his heroic act right now. In fact, the speech that he delivered, announcing the death of bin Laden, earned President Obama his highest approval ratings ever. And this wasn’t a fluke. Nearly 57 million viewers tuned in to his speech—more than any other time during his presidency (although his acceptance speech drew 70 million viewers). According to the New York Times, his approval rating increased by 11 points after that speech—pretty impressive.

All Obama needs to do is continue riding the coattails of this success to the election and it’s a sure-win. The death of the terrorist was the act that Obama needed to boost his image and it came just in time. If he can turn the economy around within the next few months, there will be no question that the 2011 election will be a victory for our current president.

Sure, President Obama didn’t hunt bin Laden down to gain cool points for the election, but it sure won’t hurt.
