19% Think Obama Has Earned Nobel Peace Prize

Via Memeorandum
New CNN poll:

19% think Obama has accomplished enough to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize which is down from 32% in October, wow.  I would love to know what those 19% think he has actually done so far.  CNN explains the why some have changed their mind since October:

"That number dropped 21 among Democrats and 10 points among independents, possibly due in part to Obama's recent decision to send 30,000 more U.S. combat troops to the war in Afghanistan," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
But although most people do not think the president currently deserves the peace prize, seven in 10 questioned - including a majority of Republicans - say he should go to Oslo, Norway Thursday to accept the award.
 Well he went and gave his speech, which was incredibly boring in my humble opinion.  It was also incredibly long, again, in my humble opinion.   Kathryn Lopez's commentary on twitter was quite entertaining though, here's a sample:
