Obama's at 53%

Washington (CNN) - As President Barack Obama gets ready to start his second term in office, an average of the latest surveys indicates that 53% of Americans approve of the job he's doing in office, with 42% giving him a thumbs down.

That's according to a new CNN Poll of Polls, compiled and released Friday, which averages seven non-partisan, live operator national surveys conducted since January 9.

The survey's included in the CNN Poll of Polls are: Gallup daily tracking poll (Jan. 14-16); CNN/Time Magazine/ORC (Jan. 14-15); NBC/Wall Street Journal (Jan. 12-15); CBS/New York Times (Jan. 11-15); AP/GfK (Jan. 10-14); ABC/Washington Post (Jan. 10-13); Pew Research Center (Jan. 9-13).

Since the CNN Poll of Polls is an average of multiple surveys, it does not have a sampling error.
