Majority Approve of Obama and His Agenda

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds 52% of Americans approve of President Obama's overall job performance.

They also mostly agree with his agenda:

"Fifty-six percent believe that the laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter, compared with a combined 42% who want them less strict or kept the same... Also, for the first time in the poll, a majority of Americans -- 52% -- favor allowing illegal immigrants who hold jobs to apply for legal status in this country."

"And in the latest fiscal fight in Washington, more respondents say they would blame congressional Republicans (45%) than Obama and congressional Democrats (33%) if the nation's debt limit isn't raised and the country is unable to meet its obligations."
