Overall, 56% of voters somewhat or strongly approve of Obamaâ€™s performance so far while 39% disapprove.
24% of voters think the nation is headed in the right direction.Â That’s up from 14% before the election.Â Apparently it’s change that only 10% of us believe in.
UPDATE: Apparently that’s up from 41% approval yesterday.Â I guess change.gov getting flushed down the crapper went over well.
