President Obama’s favorability is now below that of all his other living predecessors in the White House, including former Presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, according to a new poll.
Americans were split, 49 percent to 49 percent, on Mr. Obama, while 52 percent had a favorable opinion of Mr. Bush compared to 43 percent with an unfavorable one, according to results from a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday.
Mr. Bush’s rating was his most positive since April 2005.
Former President Bill Clinton and former President George H.W. Bush each had a 64 percent favorable rating, while Mr. Carter had a 56 percent favorable rating.
Mr. Obama’s job approval rating is also back underwater now as more Americans say things are going badly in the country compared to March.
Fifty-two percent of Americans disapprove of how the president is handling his job, compared to 45 percent who approve. In a March poll, 48 percent approved and 47 percent approved.
Similarly, 52 percent say things in the country are going badly, compared to 47 percent who say things are going well. In March, 53 percent said things were going well — the highest share of Mr. Obama’s presidency.
About time!! Guess America is waking up...finally, course, we ain't seen nothing yet......bad numbers will just "upset" him more.....Gonna get much, much worse for all of us....before he is done!
I am sure obummers ratings are worse that what is being reported.
Also sure that influential members of the elite MSM are on the payroll of the "white house" war room.....Jarrett and her 1000 secret Czars....talking to them every day...suitcases of our money as their rewards.
No matter what Obama does, 45% of the electorate, the utterly clueless, will always support him. Does not bode well for what little remains of this republic.
I believe it is more like 52%.
Dunno Sgt.....think a more accurate number is 40 for us....40 for them....and 20 need to be convinced.....think we can do the latter.....if so...we will win....as we did in the House in 10 and the Senate in 12......get the White House in 16!!!! Only mission left for us.
Hope you're right.......but I seriously worry about the millions of illegals BO is allowing to enter at the border and his orders to DHS to issue them citizen status (via whatever govt agency does that)....and one can imagine how they will be instructed to vote.
Then, factor in the 1000's of Syrian "refugees' (Muslims) BO has authorized.
If the Appeals court continues to deny his Immigration fiasco...think he is in big trouble for all of his policies, now in place. What is coming down now and in 16 on the U...ACA...another massive blow to his efforts. So, he/they will not give up, but the tide is finally turning in our favor....against them.
well that 47%%%% still worries me that's 47%%%% stupid,,people who do not have a clue
I still think it is closer to 52%.
It should be below ALL other presidents!
I'm surprised that our liar in chief is still in office. If he were not black and liberal he wouldn't be. That is NOT meant as a racial statement. A bum is a bum no matter his color.
