The Education Split on Obama

This week’s Wall Street Journal/NBC poll puts both his total job approval and economic job approval numbers at 47%. The usual divides are also there, of course – 81% of Democrats approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing on the economy, while only 6% of Republicans do.

But not all political splits in America follow the overly familiar red-blue divide. Inside the polls on Mr. Obama’s approval there are more nuanced economic divisions. In particular, the educational divide in the U.S. economy seems to be playing a role in how people view Mr. Obama’s job performance. [cont.]
