AP Poll: People optimistic on Obama by 3-1 margin


WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll shows that by a 3-1 margin, the American people feel more optimistic about the country's future now that Barack Obama has been inaugurated president.

The Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll found that 53 percent of those surveyed said they felt more optimistic, while just 15 percent said his ascendancy to the White House made them feel more pessimistic.

The poll also showed that even among Republicans, just 29 percent of those surveyed felt more pessimistic with Obama at the White House - roughly the same number as the 30 percent of GOP people who said they felt more optimistic.

A smaller proportion of those who said they saw or heard his inaugural address - 51 percent - called it good.

The poll was conducted Tuesday and involved online interviews with 835 adults. It has a samling error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
