Mixed results for Obama in latest Franklin & Marshall College Poll

Some highlights from a new Franklin & Marshall College Poll, produced in partnership with Hearst Television:
* Only 47 percent of Americans support Obamacare.

* Only 12 percent of those surveyed indicate they do not have health coverage.

* Only 54 percent say these economic problems can be solved with the help of government.

* A slim majority (51%) of registered Americans believe President Obama is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, while nearly as many (47%) believe he is doing a "fair" or "poor" job. A large majority (74%) of Democrats indicate the president is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, versus 25 percent who say he is doing an "only fair" or "poor" job.

* The president's job performance ratings among Republicans are substantially lower (13% "excellent" or "good" and 83% "only fair" or "poor") and among Independents are more divided (47% "excellent" or "good" and 54% "only fair" or "poor")
