Jimmy Carter can finally exhale after all these years. He’s no longer the worst president in modern U.S. history.
President Obama has topped predecessor George W. Bush in another poll, but not one he would like.
In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II; another 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.
“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,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Of course, Obama and Bush are the most recent presidents; historians will tell you that it takes decades to truly measure an individual president’s performance.
Ronald Reagan topped the poll as the best president since World War II, with 35%. He is followed by presidents Bill Clinton (18%) and John F. Kennedy (15%).
Just imagine the disparity between Obama and GWB if the media hadn’t spent the past eight years publicly fellating Obama. Let’s face it, there really are no positives for this loser. Note the issues important to most Americans and contrast it with what Obama has been running around focusing on. Talk about a disconnect.
