From the most recent CBS/New York Times poll: Things are slowly looking better not only for the economy but for President Obama. Click the pic above to enlarge.
The breakdown basically is:
• 50% of Americans approve of President Obama job performance versus 43% disapprove
• 34% of Americans feel the economy getting better versus 22% who feel it’s getting worse
• President Obama’s approval numbers on job creation are going up, while the disapproval numbers are going down
Looking ahead to November, the CNN/ORC poll indicates that the president’s re-election chances are on the rise.
His approval rating is at 50% in this poll as well.
And in hypothetical matchups among registered voters, Obama holds a 51%-46% margin over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, leads both former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas by the same 52%-45% advantage, and beats former House Speaker Newt Gingrich 55%-42%.
