Apple CEO Steve Jobs continues 17 straight months leading the Forbe's monthly CEO approval ratings.

Every month, Forbes invites readers to vote on CEO performance in that month. Jobs has consistently led the pack, as he presides over Apple's convincing return to glory.

Forbes writes: "The beloved "iCEO" is riding high with a whopping 93 per cent approval rating, only a point away from the Approval Tracker's all-time high". The report notes recent activity on Wall Street that has seen estimates for Apple's end-of-year target share price raised to $100 in some cases.

Jobs holds Forbes' highest yet assessment of performance - 94 per cent. The poll is unscientific, Forbes said. December's poll is open now.
