Poll: Slight Rise In Obama Approval Rating, But 54% Says Doesn’t Deserve Reelection


A new poll sees a slight increase in US President Obama’s approval, although according to the survey’s results a majority of Americans say the President doesn’t deserve to be reelected.

According to a Zogby poll, the percentage of voters saying the nation is headed in the right direction is up five percentage points from ten days ago and is the highest since July of this year, but still is only 22%.

President Barack Obama’s job approval remains below a majority (43%), but it is up two percentage points. The percentage saying he deserves re-election is 38%.

These results are from an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll conducted from Oct. 28-31.

On Oct 21, 72% of those polled said the US was on the wrong track and 17% said the U.S. is headed in the right direction, compared to the 69% that now reported “wrong track.”

On July 6, 2011, 23% chose “right direction,” and that number fell as low as 15% in August and September.

According to the poll, overall approval of Congress is 16%, up three percentage points from Oct. 21. Approval for Congressional Republicans is 30% and for Congressional Democrats 28%, both unchanged from 10 days ago.

    I have mixed feels about President Obama. No one is perfect. Richard Nixon had more dirt up his sleave then President Barak Obama. President Richard Nixon did help our relation with China and a cease fire in 1973, but dealling shadey deals inreference to Watergate and the Fuel crisis, I’m surprize that we voters forget this mess that got ourselves in, does not all fall on Obama. President Obama is do his job, right or wrong, he’s taking up space at the White House.

    Heck President Johnson didn’t pull hard enough to bring our men and women home from Vietnam
