Sources: Obama administration to lift deepwater drilling moratorium

Washington (CNN) - The Obama administration plans to lift the deepwater drilling moratorium that was put in place in the wake of the BP oil spill, two government sources told CNN on Tuesday.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and the new head of the government agency overseeing offshore drilling, Michael Bromwich, were scheduled to hold a 1 p.m. news conference on the issue.

The moratorium began after the Gulf oil spill in April, and has drawn criticism from Republicans, Gulf state officials and coastal residents for stopping some oil drilling operations. Salazar has said the moratorium was necessary to ensure a similar accident to the one that caused the Gulf disaster doesn't happen.

CNN Poll: Americans like Obama but disagree with him on issues

Washington (CNN) - Hours before President Barack Obama holds a town hall to try and energize Democratic voters, a new poll indicates that he remains personally popular but a majority of Americans disagree with his positions on issues that matter to them.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national survey released Tuesday, 59 percent of the public says Obama has the personality and leadership qualities a president should have, with four in ten disagreeing.

"That may be good news for Obama, but it's not a plus for Democratic candidates in this year's midterm elections," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Without Obama's name on the ballot, the effects of his personal popularity are limited."
