‘Obama favorability rating among Americans reaches three-year high’

Washington, Nov 17: US President Barack Obama’s favorability rating has reached its highest point since 2009, a new poll has revealed.

According to a Gallup poll, Obama has a 58 percent positive rating among all Americans, a three-point bump from his favorability rating from a survey taken days before the election.

The last time Obama’s favorability rating was registered high was in July 2009 with a 66 percent positive rating, and his highest positive number ever recorded by Gallup was 78 percent, just before his inauguration as president, Politico reports.

“Obama now enjoys as positive an image in the eyes of Americans as he has at any point in the last three years,” Gallup concluded.

The Democratic Party has also increased its favorability rating since Election Day, with 52 percent of Americans viewing them positively, up from 45 percent before the election, the report said. (ANI)
