Despite any real prospects for a settlement of the federal government’s fiscal crisis, President Barack Obama‘s numbers continue to look strong, according to a new poll by Zogby Analytics. The online survey of 1000 likely voters, conducted March 13-14, shows the President’s job approval holding steady at 52%, with 45% disapproving. This is a point better in each direction since the February 27-28 Zogby Poll. Mr. Obama’s approval actually rose from 86% to 88% among Democrats and 14% to 20% among Republicans – but it slipped 3 points to only 41% among independents, with 53% disapproving. The President’s re-election was boosted by his majority support among independents in November/John Zogby, Forbes. More here.
