The President's State Of The Union Non-Bump

February 22, 2013, 3:00 PM GMT+0

(Week of 2/16/2013) Barack Obama received no bump in popularity from his State of the Union Message last week, and Americans remain divided over his Presidency, as they have been for several years. In this week’s Economist/YouGov Poll, 47% approve of the way he is handling his job, while 46% do not.

Last week, before the State of the Union Message, the figures were almost identical, with 47% approving, and 48% disapproving.
