ABC: Aided by his response to the Tucson shootings, popular lame-duck legislation and a hint of economic relief, Barack Obama has matched his highest job approval rating in more than a year in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, with his ratings for empathy likewise rebounding.

It’s a remarkable turnaround for a president so recently hammered in the 2010 midterm elections … 54 percent now approve of Obama’s job performance, up 5 points from last month and 8 points above his career low in September.

Against a backdrop of ice covered trees, national flags of China and the U.S. fly along Pennsylvania Avenue outside the White House. Chinese President Hu Jintao on Tuesday flew to the United States for a state visit.
