Obama Approval Continues to Climb

A new CNN/Opinion Research survey finds President Obama's approval rating has steadily risen over the past two months, from 48% in early April to 52% in early May and the current mark of 54%.

Notes pollster Keating Holland: "On specific issues, the president's approval rating is over 50% on only three out of 11 items tested, and all three -- terrorism, Afghanistan, and Iraq -- are foreign or security issues. But his approval rating on every domestic issue listed in the poll is well below 50 and on most of them -- including the economy, health care, taxes, and the budget deficit -- his rating has remained flat or dropped since the start of the year."
