Obama Approval Jumps After Election

A new Quinnipiac poll finds President Obama's approval rate at 53% to 40%, his best score in three years.

Voters also trust Obama and Democrats more than Republicans, by a 53% to 36% margin, to avoid the "fiscal cliff."

Said pollster Peter Brown: "Nothing like winning an election to boost your job approval. President Obama hasn't had a score this good since his 52 - 40 percent approval rating May 5, 2011, right after the death of Osama bin Laden. This is only the second time in more than three years that President Obama has broken 50 percent. And voters see Republicans as more likely to be obstructionist, and have less confidence in their ability to come up with the right solution to the nation's financial woes."
