With five years of failure under his belt, a new Galllup polls finds ObamaCare is the biggest of all the Obama failures. So many failures to choose from. Ironically, it’s allegedly his greatest achievement as well.
Americans believe that passing the Affordable Care Act was the greatest achievement of the Obama presidency, but also the administration’s biggest misstep, according to a new poll released Monday by Gallup.
According to the survey, 22 percent of Americans believe that ObamaCare is the president’s crowning achievement — more than double any other item. Ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and capturing terrorist leader Osama bin Laden were tied in second place, both picked by 7 percent of the public.
No other achievement — including becoming the first black president, reducing unemployment, or stabilizing the economy — earned more than 3 percent.
But when asked what the president’s biggest failure was, a sizable plurality also selected ObamaCare, underscoring the political potency — and divided opinion — of the law.
Some 36 percent of respondents chose the Affordable Care Act as the biggest failure of his administration, vastly outpacing the 9 percent who criticized the president for not working better with Congressional Republicans.
Of those surveyed, 5 percent said the president’s biggest flaw was a lack of communication, while 4 percent said the president hadn’t displayed enough leadership. No other controversy garnered more than 3 percent, and only 1 percent of those surveyed said Obama’s handling of the Benghazi terror attack was his biggest failure.
That number would probably be higher if the media didn’t help him cover up the Benghazi murders.
