Obama’s approval rating highest in 6 months

Looks like the lame-duck session of Congress did some good for President Obama’s approval ratings (emphasis mine):

Half of Americans are giving President Obama a positive approval rating, the highest rating he’s gotten in nearly eight months, according to Gallup. According to an average of results from Dec. 28 to Jan. 2, 50 percent of respondents approved and 42 disapproved of his job performance.

His new mark is three points higher than what it was between Dec. 27 and 29. The last time Obama had a 50 percent approval rating in the Gallup poll was between May 29 and June 1.
