President Obama’s approval rating in the latest Gallup Daily tracking poll sits at its highest point in eight months. Fully half of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, while 42 percent disapprove.

The jump in Obama's approval rating comes shortly after a lame-duck session of Congress that Obama hailed as "a season of progress" before departing on his Christmas vacation.

The Gallup Daily tracking poll surveyed 1,544 adults, for a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent. The poll was conducted Dec. 28 to 29 and Jan. 2; polling was not conducted Dec. 30 to Jan. 1 due to the New Year's holiday.
