UTICA, NY - As President Barack Obama prepares for his State of the Union Address tonight, a majority of likely voters (51 percent) say they are proud to have him as President. One-in-three likely voters (35 percent) are ashamed while 14 percent undecided, a new Zogby Interactive survey finds. While there is a strong partisan divide, independents are more likely to be proud of President Obama (45 percent) than ashamed (34 percent).
As he begins his second year in office, President Obama fares slightly better than both former President Bush and former President Clinton as each neared the end of their second term in office.
Zogby International conducted an online survey of 1,963 likely voters conducted nationally between December 15-18, 2010. A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the US, was invited to participate. Slight weights were added by region, party, age, race, religion, gender, education to more accurately reflect the population. The margin of error is +/- 2.3 percentage points. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.
