Obama popularity on upswing: ABC/Washington Post poll

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama's overall job performance rating is improving, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Obama's rating is the highest since March in the poll, the paper reports, "excluding a temporary bump after the killing of Osama bin Laden: Forty-nine percent approve, and 47 percent disapprove."

From the Post: "A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that Americans are still broadly disapproving of Obama's handling of the economy and jobs, the top issues, but that views of his overall performance have recovered among key groups, including independents, young adults and seniors."
