Poll shows most college students like Obama

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (USANN4)–More college students have a favorable opinion of President Obama.   According to a new study by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, his approval rating among students at four-year colleges was 60 percent.   That’s up from a survey done last October that posted it at 51 percent.

Although Obama’s approval rating increased, students remain distrustful of the federal government.   In Harvard’s first survey, in 2000, 64 percent of college students said they did not trust the government to do the right thing all or most of the time.   That percentage has remained steady since then.
