Pennsylvanians like President Barack Obama.
The latest Franklin and Marshall Poll has the 44th President’s approval rating at 51% against a 48% disapproval rating.
That’s a significant improvement from last month, when his approval fell to 45%. This month’s results, though, are just a point off from his July numbers which were the best since his honeymoon period.
Digging deeper, 22% believe Pres. Obama is doing an excellent job and 29% think he’s doing a good job. On the other hand, 33% think he’s doing a poor job while 15% say it’s only been a fair job.
President Obama also remains far ahead of his predecessor, George W. Bush:
