Interesting.

Obama has a -10% competency rating.

Obama has a 40% approval rating (-13%).


Would the country today be better off under Obama or Romney: Romney +7%.

Both Men (+12%) and Women (+2%) agree that Romney would have made a better president.

Youth (18 to 29) still think Obama would have been better than Romney at +11% to Obama.

Independents prefer Romney by +14% over Obama.


Under Obama, has the economy 26% improved, 31% declined, 46% stayed the same.


Worst presidents post WWII: #1 Obreezey 33%, #2 GWB 28%, #3 Nixon 13%, #4 Carter 8%.

Best presidents post WWII: #1 Reagan 35%, #2 Clinton 18%, #3 JFK 15%, #4 Obreezey 8%, #5 Ike 5%.

Hahahaha. They obviously just polled the elderly white men watching Faux Noise. The Democrats are 100% certain to retain the Senate this year, there's a good chance they'll retake the House, and Hillary (or Elizabeth Warren or Martin O'Malley) is certain to win 400+ electoral votes in 2016. Don't you forget it, elderly white men!

OBAMA! OBAMA!

Sore loser talk. Obama is losing in polls and it may hurt his party in the 2014 midterms...if only the GOP were organized and efficient themselves.

There is truth that you need time to properly assess a president - it removes a lot of emotion (like chanting a mantra over and over) and clarifies the effects of policy.

However, there is nothing wrong with approval polls, and current snap shots - it does show a good image of the current sentiment of a country.

Anyone being objective knows Obama is incompetent and Romney would have been a better leader. I suspect even many liberals would concede that, they just don't agree with Romney's politics.

This is old news. I'm surprised someone would waste money polling people.

It is just an expanded poll of their usual presidential approval rating etc poll. Same normal poll - few added questions.
