Poll: Obama's Approval Rating Jumps Nine Points
"In the poll, which was conducted on Monday, 56% of Americans said they approved of Obama's job performance, compared to 38% who said the disapproved. That's a marked turnaround from one month ago, when 47% of Americans gave Obama positive marks on his job performance, while 45% said otherwise.
It also marks the highest approval rating the President has enjoyed since June 2009, when 61% of Americans approved of his job performance, and 30% disapproved.
The quick turnaround comes in large part from a big boost in support from independent voters. While Republicans' views of Obama remained virtually unchanged from one month ago -- in March, 16% of GOP voters approved of Obama's job performance, and 16% said the same this month as well -- independents flipped from giving Obama a net negative approval rating to a net positive.
In March, independents disapproved of Obama's job performance by a 48% to 42% split. They now say the opposite, with 52% giving him positive marks, and 40% giving him negative ones.
