A new poll shows that President Barack Obama’s approval rating has increased and he is viewed more favorably than any of the presidential candidates, which could boost his influence on November’s general election...
...The survey also found that 53% of respondents had a favorable view of Obama, more than any of the presidential candidates. Democrat Bernie Sanders was next with 48% favorability, followed by Democrat Hillary Clinton (40%) and Republican John Kasich (34%). Republicans Ted Cruz and Donald Trump were tied with 26% favorability.
...If his higher approval rating lasts, it could make Obama a significant influence in the general election and provide a helpful boost for Democrats and the eventual party nominee.
