For the first time in years, more Americans than not say the country is on the right track.

According to a new Associated Press-GfK poll, 48% of Americans say the country is headed in the right direction and 44% say it's going in the wrong direction. The "right direction" number is up from 40% in February.

Not since January 2004 has an AP survey found more "right direction" than "wrong direction" respondents.

Those numbers seem to reflect President Barack Obama's popularity.

The AP-GfK poll suggests that 64% of the public approves of the president’s job performance. But he has become a polarizing figure, with just 24% of Republicans approving of his performance. That's down from 33% in February.

President Obama's 100th day in office is April 29th.
