President Obama's job approval is at 49 percent, according to a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey.

(CNN) -- One day before President Obama delivers his first State of the Union address, a new national poll indicates that Americans are divided on job he's doing in office.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Tuesday, 49 percent of the public approves of the job Obama's doing in the White House, with 50 percent disapproving of how he's handling his duties.

Fifty-five percent of people questioned say they don't think Obama has paid enough attention to the most important problems, with 45 percent saying he has the right priorities. And 6 in 10 feel the president has paid more attention to financial institutions rather than the problems faced by middle-class Americans, with 28 percent disagreeing.

But 63 percent say Obama is sincere and 6 in 10 say he's a strong leader. Fifty-nine percent of people questioned say the president is honest and trustworthy, 57 percent feel he inspires confidence, and 56 percent say Obama is in touch with Americans.
