Poll: 60% Approval Rating For Clinton

Compiled From Wire Services

Sixty percent of Americans approve of the job President Clinton is doing, but half think Congress will have more influence over the country’s direction during the next few years, according to a CBS poll released Saturday.

Nevertheless, two of every three think Clinton and the Congress will be able to work together on most important issues, the network said.

CBS said a similar poll in 1994, after the Republicans first won a majority in both houses of Congress, found Clinton’s approval rating was only 38 percent.
