WashPost/ABC Poll: 55% Approve of Obama as Commander in Chief

One bright spot for President Obama in an otherwise dreary Washington Post/ABC News poll:
Voters also disapproved of Obama's job performance on the one other issue tested by the Post: 54 percent disapprove and 43 percent approve of how he's handling the economy.
So Obama's head was above water on just one of the five issues tested by the Post: his performance as commander in chief. Yet his overall approval rating is at 50 percent, which suggests that perhaps the president's determination to prosecute the war in Afghanistan is propping up his overall job performance rating.
