A whopping 60% of Americans regard President Obama favorably, according to a new ABC-WaPo poll. That's the most popular the president's been in three years. His all-time high was 79%, around his first inauguration in 2009.
Interestingly, most of the increase in Obama's popularity came from non-partisans. Republicans like Obama less than they did in January 2012 - with a 1% drop in those who favor him. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 5% of Democrats like the POTUS more than they did last year. But that makes the average increase among partisans only 3%, meaning that more than 7% of non-partisans must have begun to favor the president since last year.
