Here’s the new weekly presidental approval poll. Remember — even if you voted last week, you’ll want to vote again on this poll as this is a weekly feature and the results will vary from week to week. Let your opinion be heard (for free)!
Remember: This approval poll applies to the current GWC re-watch schedule, which means you should be voting for your feelings circa Episode 112-113: “Kobol’s Last Gleaming.”
Do you approve or disapprove of the way Laura Roslin is handling her job as president?
Total Votes: 37
In “Colonial Day” we had some icky political maneuvering, but in “KLG” we have Roslin staking the safety of the fleet on her personal religious beliefs. I do believe that, as humans, leaders cannot help but have their personal moral and religious beliefs influence their decisions; but I also think they ought to give more weight to the light of reason; and in this case, under these extreme circumstances, Adama clearly is thinking more rationally than Roslin. (Except of course, again, for that bothersome fact that prophecy in the BSGverse always comes true in a literal way.)
