Americans applaud Obama's unemployment efforts
WASHINGTON - An Associated Press-GfK poll finds that Americans' views of President Barack Obama have improved slightly in the past two months.
On the rise, too, are opinions about the direction of the country and the health of the economy.
A slim majority now approves of the way Obama is handling unemployment, according to the poll.
The survey was conducted before Friday's release of a surprisingly strong jobs report.
Nearly half of those surveyed approve of how Obama is handling his job as president, compared with 41 percent in December.
