The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday showed a slim majority of Americans have a favorable opinion of the policies that President Barack Obama will pursue in his second term, nearly matching the percentage of respondents who have an unfavorable view of the agenda that congressional Republicans will push over the next four years.
Fifty-two percent of American adults said they have a favorable opinion of Obama's second term policies, compared with 43 percent who have an unfavorable opinion — a much larger base of support than Republicans on Capitol Hill can claim.
The poll found that 55 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the policies that the congressional GOP will push for over the next four years, while just 36 percent have a favorable opinion.
