It seems more Americans like President Barack Obama than they like his $800 billion-plus economic stimulus package. A healthy 76 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing as president, according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released yesterday. Compare that to just 54 percent who support his bill.

Twenty-three percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s performance while 45 percent are opposed to the stimulus bill.
