This is just incredible. New CNN poll:

Eighty-four percent of those questioned in the survey say they approve of how Barack Obama is handling his presidential transition.

And 60 percent of registered Republicans have "a positive view of Obama." What does all of this mean? For starters, expect to hear on Morning Joe this week: "Why can't Obama close the deal?"

Meanwhile, President Bush leaves office with an approval of 31 percent. The lowest poll for a departing president since Nixon. 68 percent say that his presidency was a failure.
