A Gallup survey released Monday indicates that during the first half of 2010, 85 percent of residents in the District of Columbia approved of the job Obama was doing as president, with 68 percent of Hawaiians giving him a thumbs up.
Democrats overwhelmingly dominate in Washington D.C. and they also greatly outnumber Republicans in Hawaii, the state where Obama spent much of his childhood and teenaged years.
Besides Illinois, where Obama lived for decades before moving to the nation's capital, states from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions round out the top ten for Obama's popularity.
According to the poll, only 29 percent of Wyoming residents approve of how the president's handling his duties in the White House, followed by Utah, Idaho and West Virginia at 34 percent.
These survey's results are based on aggregated data from Gallup Daily tracking polls conducted January through June of this year, with more than 90,000 adults questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus one percentage point.
