President Barack Obama’s approval rating in April was the highest monthly average since he received a major spike in support after Bin Laden’s death last May, Gallup reported Tuesday.

According to the data, Obama’s approval for the month was 47 percent, three points behind the 50 percent he achieved following the covert strike against the terrorist leader.

The number carries additional weight in the face of the upcoming election since no modern President has been reelected with an approval rating under 50 percent.

The poll was conducted among 14,081 adults throughout April.
