Public's perception of U.S. auto industry rebounds

Back when the government first started talking about bailing out the auto industry, an economically battle weary American public's perceptions of U.S. automakers dipped.

But a new Gallup poll finds those perceptions are on the rebound. In fact, there's been a 15-point increase in the public's perception of the domestic auto industry - the largest one-year leap since Gallup began tracking public opinion on major U.S. industries a decade ago.

For the first time in three years, more Americans have positive than negative perceptions of the U.S. auto industry. But those positive feelings still lag behind those of 2001-2005.
