Obama hits West for cash after poll boost

(NEWS.YAHOO) — President Barack Obama launched his latest cross-country trawl for campaign cash Wednesday and an effort to highlight the rebounding economy at an auspicious moment — as his approval rating hit 50 percent.

A New York Times/CBS News poll published on Wednesday provided the latest evidence that strengthening jobs growth and a quickening recovery are bolstering Obama’s prospects as he takes aim at November’s election.

While the news is not all good for Obama — his economic management gets low marks still from voters — the poll and other recent surveys suggest that prospective Republican challengers are less popular than the president.

The Times poll puts Obama in more comfortable political territory than he has enjoyed since before the 2010 mid-term congressional elections in which his Democratic Party was trounced by Republicans.
