    Obama’s poll numbers improve among moderate Republicans

    President Obama remains hugely unpopular with Republicans, but a new Gallup Poll finds that he's gained a little ground among moderate members of the GOP.

    According to Gallup, Obama's approval rating among moderate Republicans jumped 9 percentage points in the last two weeks, to 29 percent. That's still a dismal number, but as Gallup notes, that's the highest number Obama has banked among swing Republicans since May. Gallup credits the bump, in part, to Obama's compromise with the GOP on tax cuts.

    It's a stat that Obama aides are likely to closely watch heading into the 2012 presidential campaign, given that Obama won in 2008 in part because he was able to win support among moderate GOPers.

    Of course, it's a different story with conservative Republicans. Just 9 percent approve of the job Obama is doing, according to Gallup.

    Among all Americans, Obama's approval rating remained at 46 percent.

    WASHINGTON - More troubled homeowners are dropping out of the Obama administration's main foreclosure-relief program, which has been widely criticized for failing to help more people keep their homes.

    The Treasury department said Wednesday that about 774,000 homeowners have dropped out as of last month. That's about 54 percent of the more than 1.4 million people who applied. And it's up from October, when approximately 756,000 had fallen out.
