    Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama's approval rating is back to 50% for the first time in more than eight months, and he currently holds an edge against all the remaining Republican presidential candidates in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups, according to a new national survey.

    And a CNN/ORC International Poll released Wednesday also indicates that the GOP's advantage on enthusiasm has been erased, and that the number of Americans who think things are going well in the country is on the rise. Six out of ten say things are going poorly in the country, but four out of ten say things are going well, up 15 points since November.

    Independents now have a net-positive view of President Obama," says Holland. "His approval rating has also reached 50% in the suburbs."

    The CNN poll asked respondents how angry they are "about the way things are going in the country today?"

    Only 22 percent gave the "very angry" response, the lowest since before the economic downturn in 2008.

    His re-election chances look good too.

    Registered voters favor Obama 51-46 over Romney, 52-45 over Santorum, 52-45 over Paul, and a whopping 55 to 42 over Gingrich.
