Is Obama Meeting Expectations?

The poll also finds, however, that 50 percent of Americans think expectations for Obama's presidency are unrealistically high and he won't be able to meet them in the long run. A large 43 percent minority thinks the expectations are realistic and he will live up to them.

More than half of voters (53 percent) think Obama is currently meeting expectations and another 14 percent say he is exceeding them. Few people — 11 percent — think the president-elect is falling below expectations. For some 20 percent it is too soon to tell.

For Democrats, 82 percent think Obama is meeting or exceeding expectations, as do 50 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of independents.
