Obama has gone up five points in the wake of his handling the mass shooting of a black church in Charleston, S.C., and several deaths of unarmed black men by police officers.
However, after quite a few Americans were asked in a poll, most of them said race relations have worsened since Obama became president. Also, 53 Percent of Americans disapprove of the way Obama has been handling the gun policy.
