Obama’s Bin Laden Boost Is Over, Wash. Post-ABC Poll Indicates

June 7 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama’s gain in public estimation from the killing of Osama bin Laden has evaporated and two out of three people disapprove of his handling of the U.S. economy, a Washington Post-ABC News poll indicated.

Fifty-seven percent of those questioned said the economy hasn’t started to recover and, while 42 percent were of the opinion that a recovery has started, only 7 percent said it’s a strong one.

Obama came out higher than five of six potential Republican candidates in the poll; Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, however, is level with Obama at 47 percent, according to the poll.

A random national sample of 1,002 adults was questioned by phone between June 2 and June 5. The results of the survey have a sampling-error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, the Post said.
