Poll: Things slowly looking up for President Obama

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%.
