Indeed, they're quite high. High enough that I'm not sure they're real; as has been pointed out, fewer people disapprove of Barack Obama than approve of George W. Bush. Yes, it's still the transition period when you don't have to make any hard decisions.
If you believe that the President's numbers generally track the right track/wrong track number, recall that prior to the election we were in the single digits on the right track. It appears that almost everyone who thinks the country is on the "wrong track", regardless of what they think the "right track" looks like, belives Barack Obama will take use there.
That, or no one wants to say The Black Guy isn't doing a good job.
