[January 21, 2009]  WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll shows that three out of four American people feel more optimistic about the country's future now that Barack Obama has been inaugurated president.

The Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll also showed that even among Republicans, just 29 percent of those surveyed felt more pessimistic with Obama at the White House -- roughly the same number as the 30 percent of GOP people who said they felt more optimistic.

A smaller proportion of those who said they saw or heard his inaugural address -- 51 percent -- called it good.

The poll was conducted Tuesday and involved online interviews with 835 adults. It has a sampling error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
