WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s job performance ratings improved in the new Bloomberg National Poll released on Tuesday, but Americans are still divided on his performance.
- 48 percent approve of Obama’s job performance, “up from 42 percent in December — the biggest positive change of his presidency,” according to the poll.
- 49 percent feel favorably towards Obama; 49% feel unfavorably towards the president.
- 69 percent approve hiking the minumum wage. Obama and Democratic lawmakers have been pushing to boost the federal minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016, so far unsuccessfully.
