When compared with polling done days before the election, the percentage of Americans with favorable views of President Barack Obama increased by three points and positive views of Mitt Romney increased by four points.
The same new poll, conducted by Gallup
, also indicated that while people see the Democratic Party in a more positive light since Americans cast their votes on Nov. 6, their opinion of the Republican Party has remained relatively unchanged.
The percentage of Americans with a favorable opinion of Barack Obama rose from 55 to 58, the highest positive rating he’s had in three years. Mitt Romney’s favorability rating went from 46 to 50 percent, tying his personal high just after the end of the Republican primaries.
The biggest shift in the poll was the positive view Americans now take on the Democratic Party, with a six-point increase to 51 percent from 45. The view of the Republican party was statistically unchanged, going from 42 percent to 43, which is within the margin of error.
Gallup surveyed 1,009 people for the poll between Nov. 9 and 12. The margin of error is 4 points.
