Obama Job Approval Rating Hits 3-Year High on Tracking Poll Average

President Barack Obama’s job approval rating on the aggregate average has hit a 3-year high, fueled by similiar highs on Gallup, Rasmussen Reports and Reuters. According to the PPD average, 48.1% approve of the president’s job performance while 47.6% disapprove, numbers that include adults averaged with registered and likely voters.

The small 1.1% spread actually understates the 51% job approval rating President Obama holds in the latest Gallup and Rasmussen Reports tracking polls. That compares to just 46% and 49% who say they disapproved in the two latest surveys, respectively. Historically, if these numbers hold, it will be extremely difficult for Republicans to win the White House in November.
