President Obama has registered his highest approval ratings in a year and a higher number than Bill Clinton had at this point in his presidency.

Fifty-four percent now approve of Obama’s job performance, up 5 points from last month and 8 points above his career low in September. And given overwhelming approval of his response to the Tucson attack, Americans by an 18-point margin, 58-40 percent, say Obama “understands the problems of people like you.” That’s up from a mere 2-point split, 50-48 percent, in September.

Thirty-five percent say Obama is making the economy better, versus 24 percent who say he’s making it worse. Surprisingly, there is a 17% improvement among Republicans on that score.
