UTICA, NY - A bounce in approval of Republicans in Congress recorded on April 7 has dropped back to previous levels, and is now 31 percent, one percentage point greater than approval for Congressional Democrats.

President Barack Obama's approval rating among likely voters is 43 percent and the percentage that believes he deserves to be re-elected is 38 percent, leaving both measures of Obama’s standing with voters unchanged from earlier this month.

These results are from an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll of 2,132 voters conducted from April 13-15.

Approval of Congress as a whole is 22 percent, two points less than on April 7. Approval of all of Congress and Congressional Democrats has been more steady over recent months that that of Congressional Republicans.

The percentage saying the nation is headed in the right direction is 25 percent, one point less than on April 7.

The interactive poll of 2,132 likely voters has a margin of error of +/-2.2 percent. A sampling of IBOPE Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the U.S., was invited to participate. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, and education to more accurately reflect the population.
