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.
