The scoop from Washington

Obama stuck with low ratings: Washington Post/ABC poll

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Obama is doing a lot--on the government side and within his campaign--but having a hard time convincing people that he is accomplishing much, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll out Wednesday.

From the Post: "Slightly more than half the respondents -- 52 percent -- say Obama has accomplished "not much" or "little or nothing" as president, while 47 percent offer a positive assessment of his record. Those findings are identical to public attitudes two years ago."

And more:
"This Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted by telephone January 12 to 15, 2012, among a random national sample of 1,000 adults, including landline and cell phone-only respondents. The results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by Abt-SRBI of New York."
