Benghazi, the AP phone flap, the IRS targeting conservatives…none of it apparently has affected President Barack Obama’s approval rating.

The poll via CNN and ORC International reveals that 53% of Americans approve of Obama’s job performance; 45% disapprove. The poll was taken May 17 and 18 with a 3% margin of error.

Before the trio of scandals, an early April CNN poll had Obama’s approval rating at 51%; an early May Gallup poll had his approval rating at 50%.

The poll also determined that while 71% of Americans said the IRS actions against conservatives are inappropriate, 6 in 10 respondents said they trusted Obama’s explanations about it.
