WASHINGTON (AP) – In the aftermath of his re-election, it appears that President Barack Obama’s popularity is on the rise.

A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Obama with his highest approval ratings since the killing of Osama bin Laden. Fifty-seven percent of the people who were surveyed say they like the job he’s doing.

And 42 percent say the country is on the right track. That’s a higher percentage than at any point since the start of Obama’s first term.
