Zogby poll: Obama moves up

UTICA, New York - Approval of President Obama's job performance increased from 47 percent to 50 percent over the course of a week, a new Zogby Interactive survey finds, marking the first time since February that one in two likely voters approve of his job performance.

On the eve of crucial state primaries in Pennsylvania, Arkansas and Kentucky, the poll finds American likely voters still deadlocked when it comes to generic Congressional candidates.

The Zogby Interactive survey of 2,063 likely voters nationwide also finds that while the President may be headed into positive approval territory, a majority of likely voters (52 percent) still believe the nation is headed on the wrong track. The survey was conducted from May 14-17, and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points.
