CNN’s National Report Card – your take on the president’s performance
CNN’s National Report Card – your take on the president’s performance

Obama administration officials and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke say the economy is showing signs of stabilizing. Yet unemployment in many states continues to rise, and there are few indicators to restore confidence in the broader economy.

Most of CNN's analyst graded Obama some kind of B grade, with a D from conservatives Bill Bennett and Alex Castellanos.

"He stopped us from going over a cliff," said David Gergen, who added a note of caution: "…but he’s got real problems ahead." He gave Obama a B+.

You gave the Obama administration's handling of the economy a C- - down from the B grade you gave him after his first 100 days.

CNN Poll: President Obama's 100 day grade

(CNN) – A new national poll suggests that Americans think Barack Obama's performance as president deserves a grade of B minus.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, released Wednesday as the Obama administration marks 100 days in office, asked respondents to use a grading scale of A, B, C, D and F, where A is excellent and F is very poor.

Twenty-six percent of those questioned gave the President an A, 31 percent a B, 18 percent a C, 15 percent a D and 10 percent a F. Obama's grade averaged out to a B minus.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted April 23-26, with 2,019 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey's sampling error is plus or minus two percentage points.
