President Obama has reached the highest job-approval rating of his second term, even as most Americans believe his policies haven’t helped them to get ahead.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Monday shows Mr. Obama with a job approval of 50 percent, his highest score since he rated 53 percent immediately after his reelection in 2012.

But only 21 percent of voters say Mr. Obama’s policies have helped their personal financial situation, while 33 percent say his policies have hurt them personally and 44 percent say they’ve

made no difference.

“President Barack Obama’s final score card is a passing grade overall, but barely,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Only 27 percent of Americans are “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied” with the way things are going in nation today, while 72 percent are “somewhat dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied,” the survey found.
