President Barack Obama’s approval ratings will likely rise in the aftermath of the Osama bin Laden killing. But Republican operatives say the gain is unlikely to stick, The Hill reports.

“He had a good weekend and he’s the commander in chief. So he’ll have short-term gain from this,” GOP pollster Jim McLaughlin told the news service. “But the overriding issue is still the economy, and he’s no less vulnerable on that.”

McLaughlin doesn’t believe the spurt of support Obama will likely receive is going to influence whether potential Republican presidential candidates decide to enter the race.

“I don’t think that’s going to be the case at all,” he said. “I think everybody’s mature enough politically to realize that this will be short-term, because that’s how these things historically tend to go.”
