Poll: 56% Believe America Worse Off Under Failed Obama

Honestly I’m stunned he’s only got a 56% negative rating. Just imagine if we had a functioning media that actually held him accountable for his countless failures.

Two-thirds of likely voters say President Obama has kept his 2008 campaign promise to change America — but it’s changed for the worse, according to a sizable majority.

A new poll for The Hill found 56 percent of likely voters believe Obama’s first term has transformed the nation in a negative way, compared to 35 percent who believe the country has changed for the better under his leadership.

The results signal broad voter unease with the direction the nation has taken under Obama’s leadership and present a major challenge for the incumbent Democrat as he seeks reelection this fall.

Normally an incumbent would be buried by news like this, but his adoring media will do their best to downplay such astonishingly bad numbers.

The feeling that Obama has changed the country for the worse is strongest among Republicans, at 91 percent, compared to 71 percent of Democrats who support Obama’s brand of change.

Strikingly, 1-in-5 Democrats say they feel Obama has changed the United States for the worse.

Add that 20% to independents turned off by him and Team Romney had better realize it’s time to take advantage and go on offense.

Meanwhile, the failed president must have been tipped off to these dreadful numbers. Why else would he pretend to wants to extend some Bush tax cuts?

    And this was run by The Hill? Likely voters? And this was probably before the latest horrific jobs report. Very interesting.

    The problem is, in overall pools, Obama and Romney are running close to 50-50 (which means that half of us are still stuck on stupid).

    Unless the tide turns more toward Romney, we’re in big trouble.
