Despite Controversies Obama’s Approval Rating Remains Above 50%

Written by Eric on May 20, 2013.

Despite what most consider President Obama’s worst two weeks of his presidency, his approval rating has held strong, according to a CNN/ORC poll released on May 19th.

According to the survey, which was conducted Friday and Saturday, 53% of Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing, with 45% saying they disapprove. The president’s approval rating was at 51% in CNN’s last poll, which was conducted in early April.

More than six in 10 say that the president’s statements about the IRS scandal are completely or mostly true, with 35% not agreeing with Obama’s characterizations. And 55% say that IRS acted on its own, with 37% saying that White House ordered the IRS to target tea party and other conservative groups.

According to Politico, Fifty-six percent of respondents said President Barack Obama was not misleading in the aftermath of the attack, which left four American officials — including the U.S. ambassador to Libya — dead in September. Forty percent answered that the president had been misleading, and four percent had no opinion, the poll said.
