Obama gets highest job-approval rating since March: Poll

Obama gets highest job-approval rating since March: PollWashington, Dec 20 : US President Barack Obama has advanced to a 49 percent job approval rating, the highest since March, according to a new poll.

According to ABC News/Washington Post poll, Obama’s rating, while still under 50 percent, is up from his career-low of 42 percent in October, and back at the level at which he could run competitively for a second term.

The poll found that while Americans are disappointed with his handling of the economy and job rates, views of his overall performance have improved amongst independents, young adults, and seniors, ABC News reports.

Moreover, the poll revealed that Obama regained a substantial advantage over Republicans when it comes to protecting the middle class. 50 percent of participants said they trust Obama on the issue, while only 35 percent said they trusted the GOP.

He’s also moved ahead in trust to handle taxes, 46-41 percent, after trailing in October; and runs about evenly in trust to handle the economy and job creation, the report said.

While Obama gets just a 41 percent approval rating for handling the economy, that’s numerically his best on the issue since April and 6 points above his career low in October.

However, far more still “strongly” disapprove than strongly approve, by 43 to 17 percent, a negative intensity that puts him at risk. (ANI)
