Americans are now giving President Barack Obama a split job approval rating of 49-48 percent to mark his best net score in nearly three years, a new Quinnipiac University National poll released Thursday says.
 
The last time Obama had a positive job approval rating in a Quinnipiac poll was in a May 1, 2013 survey, when he netted a 48-45 percent score, the university said in a press release about the current report.

The numbers show large gender, age, racial, and partisan gaps in Obama's ratings:
  • Men disapprove 53-43 percent while women approve 54-43 percent;
  • White voters disapprove 57-40 percent while non-white voters approve 75-21 percent;
  • Voters 18 to 34 years old approve 62-35 percent. Approval drops to 51-44 percent among voters 35 to 49-years-old, to a negative 44-53 percent among voters 50 to 64-years-old, to a negative 37-61 percent among voters over 65-years-old;
  • Democrats approve 92-7 percent while Republicans disapprove 89-8 percent. Independent voters disapprove 50 to 44 percent.
The survey also showed that during this election season, voters tend to dislike Congressional Republicans more than they do Democrats, but both sides got negative ratings:
  • Democrats, 32-62 percent job approval rating, their best since Oct. 1, 2013, when they got a negative 32 - 60 percent score;
  • Republicans, 15-81 percent, virtually unchanged since December.
The poll was conducted by telephone  from March 16 - 21, of 1,451 registered voters nationwide, and carries a  margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
