Washington: A new national poll suggests that President Barack Obama is personally more popular than his policies.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released on Monday indicates that three in four Americans feel Obama has the personal qualities a president should have. But when asked if Obama agrees with the respondent on the issues, that number drops to 57 percent.
The survey also indicates that 63 percent of Americans approve of how Obama is handling his duties as president. One in three questioned in the poll disapprove.

Democrats overwhelming approve of how Obama is handling his job as president, 61 percent of independents agree. Only 28 percent of Republicans say the president is doing a good job in office.
"Americans have two different assessments of President Obama. One, personal. The other, policy," says CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider. "What does the public find most controversial about President Obama? His policies, much more than his personal qualities."
