The poll, by ABC News and The Washington Post, indicated 69 percent of Americans approve of the job he is doing, which is the highest evaluation in about two decades. But the president faces a partisan divide. While 93 percent of Democrats approve of his activities, only 36 percent of Republicans do so, the poll showed. Fifty-four percent say Obama's doing a better job than they expected, far above former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton at their 100-day mark. They got a 39-percent and 35-percent better-than-expected rating, respectively. Sixty-three percent say Obama has accomplished a great deal or good amount in his first three months, according to the survey. Just 37 percent said that about Clinton. And six in 10 Americans say Obama is keeping most of his main campaign promises, far surpassing Clinton, who had 42 percent on that score. If before Obama's inauguration only 19 percent said the country was on the right track, now 50 percent say so, the poll showed.
