CNN Poll: Obama approval remains high

April 6, 2009

Posted: 04:05 PM ET

From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

(CNN) As he wraps up a week-long trip abroad that drew positive headlines across Europe, President Barack Obama's approval rating remains high at home, according to a new CNN poll released Monday.

Obama draws a 66 percent approval rating in the latest CNN poll, a number that has remained statistically unchanged over the last month. That number is based on positive ratings from virtually all Democrats; two-thirds of Republicans disapprove of what the president has done in office so far.

"Polls indicate that Americans aren't blaming Obama yet for current economic conditions, so his rating remains robust despite the recession," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "In addition, a fairly successful overseas trip usually helps a president win over a few converts."

The poll, which surveyed 1,023 Americans, was conducted between April 3-5 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus three point
