The president’s job approval rating has rebounded.  When The Marist Poll last asked about President Obama’s job performance in early February, Mr. Obama’s rating stood at 46% — his lowest approval rating in the state since taking office.  At that time, 27% thought the president was doing a fair job, and the same proportion reported he was performing poorly.

Whereas Mr. Obama’s rating slipped across the electorate in Marist’s previous poll, the improvement now occurs among non-enrolled voters.  56% currently approve of the president’s job performance.  This compares with 45% who thought that way early last month.  President Obama has also gotten a bump from his base.  72% of Democrats give the president above average grades while 65% did so in Marist’s February survey.  There has been little change, though, among Republicans.  22% report Mr. Obama is excelling while 21% said the same in February.

    i go along with Obama on his health plan except for tort reform.I have spoken to a lot of doctors, who vehemently disagree with him as the absense of it forces them – in their opinions to force their patients to waste on unnecssary tests and catscans and MRIs. Perhaps you should poll doctors about tort reform.
