According to a new ABC News survey, 67% of Americans approve of President-elect Obama's work on the transition so far: "Approval of Obama's handling of the transition is slightly better than Bill Clinton's 62% in mid-November 1992. Clinton improved from there, to 72% in mid-December and 81% just before his inauguration in mid-January 1993. . . . George W. Bush's grade late in his transition also was high, albeit not as high as Clinton's -- 72% in mid-January 2001."
