Washington, Aug.7 (ANI): Major opinion polls released Thursday suggests that President Barack Obama's approval ratings are holding steady.

According to CBS, a poll carried out by Ipsos states Obama's approval rating to be 58 percent, while Gallup says it has gone up to 56 percent from 52 percent early last week"

The Quinnipiac University poll, however, claims that Obama's approval rating has dropped to 50 percent.

According to CBS, nobody actually knows what to make of these findings.

"What we do know is that the Ipsos and Gallup polls are in line with other recent polls - including the CBS News/New York Times poll from last week - which show his approval rating hovering in the mid-to-high 50s," says CBS.

The Quinnipiac University poll suggests that Obama's popularity with the American public is on the downswing eight months after taking office as the 44th president.

Multiple polls over the course of time, evidenced by the reaction of the polls' subjects, is the best way to judge where politicians stand in the eyes of voters, says CBS in conclusion. (ANI)
