Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Approval Improves, Garland Gets Strong Numbers

president-barack-obama-2013-inauguration-537x442There are some glimmers of good news for President Obama today.

His approval rating in Pennsylvania is up two points from October to 44% according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll.

His disapproval rating is at 53%, down one point from six months ago.

Not surprisingly, his numbers very much go along party lines, with an 86% approval rating among Dems, 47% with Independents and just a paltry 7% among Republicans.

His approval rating generally goes down through the age groups, with 63% among 18-35 year olds, while only getting 37% among 65 and up.


As for the President’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, he has generally positive numbers.

48% approve of his nomination, with 30% disapproving of it and 21% unsure. This also follows party lines, as only 22% of Republicans approve of the nomination, compared to 80% of Democrats. A plurality of Independents, 48%, gave their thumbs up.

As for whether or not the Senate should consider him, that number rises to 57% approval. 34% of Republicans think the Senate should consider him, as well as 58% of Independents and 83% of Democrats.

These numbers could put pressure on Sen. Toomey to more seriously consider Garland’s nomination.

This survey was conducted by Quinnipiac University using live interviewers calling land lines and cell phones from March 30th to April 4th. They contacted 1,737 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 2.4%.
