CNN National Report Card: The economy

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="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.
