Obama: 69% Overall Approval Rating
Obama’s overall rating remains high, with 69 percent of Americans approving of his job performance. He gets solid marks for his handling of the economy, maintaining a better-than-2-to-1 advantage over congressional Republicans on the issue. Majorities said that Obama has exceeded their expectations in his first three months in office, has accomplished big things and has kept his main campaign promises. Further, public optimism about the economy and the country’s direction also remain on the rise since his election, even as few think his major economic initiatives have moved the needle on the nation’s flagging economy, their communities or their finances.
