Voters’ view of the economy’s strength has vastly improved during the past few months, but President Barack Obama’s approval rating hasn’t risen in tow, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.
 
The survey showed that 54 percent of voters believe the economy has begun to recovery, while 43 percent do not. That’s a huge reversal from September, when 68 percent of respondents said the economy was not recovering, while 28 percent said it was.
 
But voters apparently do not view Obama as responsible for the improvement, as his approval ratings are little changed from November. The new poll shows 45 percent of voters approve of his job performance, while 49 percent disapprove. In September, the numbers were 44 percent for approval and 50 percent for disapproval.
 
The president’s re-election chances remain in grave jeopardy. A total of 50 percent of respondents say Obama does not deserve re-election, while 45 percent say he does. That is a slight worsening for him from the 48 percent to 45 percent tally opposed to his re-election in November.
 
Part of the reason for Obama’s weak support may be that while most voters see the economy recovering, they also say it remains in recession. A total of 66 percent believe that, while 30 percent maintain the economy has rebounded from recession.
