As Barack Obama prepares to become the nation's 44th president, a new opinion poll finds strong support for the new administration. Obama's competence, apparently, is winning over the public, in contrast to the incompetence of the outgoing Bush Administration.
[A] CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Sunday also indicates that most Americans see Obama's inauguration as a chance for the nation to come together.
Eighty-four percent of those surveyed say they approve of how Obama is handling the presidential transition. That's up 2 points from the middle of December and up 5 points from the beginning of December.
