New Poll Shows Doubt on Obama's Economic Progress

WASHINGTON (AP) - Thumbs up for President Barack Obama's personality. Thumbs down for his progress.

An overwhelming majority of Americans like Obama, but most say he hasn't accomplished much on two top goals - fixing the sluggish economy and changing how Washington works. That's from a new Associated Press-GfK poll midway through his presidency. Half of those surveyed say he deserves a second term, and independents, whose support will be critical in 2012, are evenly divided on that question.

Obama is getting the benefit of the doubt despite concerns about his policies, a reflection based in large part on his likability.

The findings suggest a competitive presidential race no matter who the GOP nominates.
