Obama favorability reaches three-year high

President Obama's favorability rating has reached its highest point since 2009, according to Gallup data released Friday.

In a recent tracking poll, the firm finds Obama with a 58 percent positive rating among all Americans — a three point bump from his favorability rating from a survey taken days before the election.

The last time Obama's favorability rating registered his highly was his 66 percent positive rating in July 2009. His highest positive number ever recorded by Gallup was 78 percent — just before his inauguration as president.

"Obama now enjoys as positive an image in the eyes of Americans as he has at any point in the last three years," Gallup concludes.

The Democratic Party has also increased its favorability rating since Election Day. They're now viewed positively by 52 percent of Americans, up from 45 percent before the election. POST
