Inability to end the oil spill in the gulf does not appear to be impacting President Barack Obama's approval rating among likely voters, which remains unchanged from one month ago at 47%, according to a new Zogby Interactive survey.

Likely voter party preferences in the 2010 Congressional election also remain unchanged, with Democrats and Republicans again tied at 41%-41%. The polls were conducted from June 4-7 and May 7-10, 2010, and carry a margin of error of +/- 2.2 percentage points.

There was a slight dip in the percentage of voters saying the nation is headed in the right direction. In the May 10 poll 39% said the nation is headed in the right direction, while 54% said it was off on the wrong track. In the latest survey, 37% chose right direction and 55% wrong track.
