Obama-wins-the-vote-as-worst-president-since-WWII

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politic...ent-since-WWII

President Obama is the top vote-getter as worst president of the last 12, according to a Quinnipiac poll. Almost half of voters also say America would be better off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 election.

WASHINGTON — President Obama is No. 1, but not in a flattering way.

He’s the top pick for “worst president since World War II,” according to a poll of American voters released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn.

Mr. Obama came in first with 33 percent, followed by George W. Bush with 28 percent. Third, with 13 percent, was Richard Nixon, who resigned in disgrace 40 years ago next month.

“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” says Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll.

The top postwar presidents are Ronald Reagan (35 percent), Bill Clinton (18 percent), and John F. Kennedy (15 percent).

Of course, asking voters to rate the current president against his predecessors may not be fair. Sitting presidents face a daily barrage of challenges, and voters can be harsh, even when a president’s ability to fix a problem is limited. Typically, as soon as a president leaves office, his favorability rating gets a boost. And, historians say, one really should wait a few decades before ranking a president for the ages.

“Presidents often look different 20 or 30 years later, because when you wait that period of time you know what was important and what was not,” historian Michael Beschloss said in 2003, PBS notes.

In a head-to-head matchup, Obama and the second President Bush scored nearly evenly: Some 39 percent of voters said Obama has been a better president, while 40 percent say he has been worse.

But when asked about the outcome of the 2012 election, Obama fares worse – and it appears some voters may have buyer’s remorse. Forty-five percent say America would be better off if Republican Mitt Romney had won the race, while 38 percent say the country would be worse off. The poll did not indicate how many of those wishing Mr. Romney had won voted for Obama in 2012. In the election, the president beat Romney 51 percent to 47 percent.

Overall, Obama’s job approval rating remains in the doldrums, at 40 percent. Fifty-three percent disapprove. He also gets low marks for handling of issues: On the economy, 40 percent approve and 55 percent disapprove; on foreign policy, it's 37 percent versus 57 percent; on health care, 40 percent to 58 percent; and on terrorism, 44 to 51 percent.

Obama’s best issue, among those polled, is the environment. Fifty percent approve of his handling of the environment, and 40 percent disapprove.

Deeply divided voter base.

"Do nothing"....except spend more money congress. "Taxing the rich solves all problems" mentality.

$17T national debt. Entitlements percentage increasing. Disability program a scam.

President that won't compromise. Congress that won't compromise

No great presidential candidates on the horizon for 2016.

USA is not looking good right now.

Like, I said before, the people only have to dislike the results--or lack of.

Obama and the Democrats policies don't deliver the results people want to see in their lives.

And it DOES NOT take more than 4 years to deliver results either.

We would not have been better off with Mitt Romney.

The Pubs needed to be reminded to stop putting up horrific candidates.

You guys think this clown's going to go away, hang out with celebrities and such, but he's going to be meddling in politics and bloviating about how he's smarter than everyone else for the rest of his life.

After he leaves office, Obama will continue to campaign using community organizing tactics working with former Acorn folks, communists with a small "c" and other Marxists on the left to continue to change America into a full socialism.

Obama is going to run like the wind away from direct politics, but fully invest himself in Hollywood-type politics.


In other words, he is going to be like Algore.

He's going to be dirt poor like Hillary when she was doing her speaking tours, making a quarter of a million for each appearance.

Maybe that's what he should be doing, since it's the only thing he's good at... reading his speechwriters' speeches

Tough to beat out Wbush and Carter in a poll like this, but somehow Obama managed to do it.
