Obama's First 100 Days

100 days in and President Barak Obama receives high marks from the public, according to surveys administered by CBS News/NY Times. More than two in three Americans approve of the job President Obama is doing. Mr. Obama's 68 percent approval rating is better than the ratings of his two immediate predecessors, George W. Bush (whose approval at this point was 56 percent) and Bill Clinton (whose approval was 49 percent).

Fifty-nine percent of those surveyed, say they believe President Obama has improved the U.S. image around the world and 11 percent say his presidency has worsened it. While a large majority of Democrats and Independents support his missions, there are doubts, however, if he'll be able to end the recession and the war in Iraq by the end of his first term.
