Obama Approval At 15-Month High
There is a post-convention approval bump for President Obama.
The poll, conducted Sept. 4-6 and released today, found that 52 percent of Americans approve of the president’s job performance, up 3 percentage points from the previous survey, conducted Sept. 3-5. In the latest poll, 43 percent disapproved of the job Obama is doing, down from 45 percent.
Obama’s job approval hadn’t topped 50 percent in the Gallup survey since a poll conducted June 21-23. The latest approval numbers are the president’s highest since a survey conducted May 29-June 1, 2011, in which Obama registered a 53 percent approval rating.
