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.
My own intuition: 10 percent think Obama is doing well cuz they're actively involved in helping the madman, 15 percent are still afraid to speak up (which means they really!!!! don't think his presidency is doing well), 20 percent haven't a clue what's going on - and of the 55 percent who are trying to keep advised of where our country is headed - half of those don't get the right information to understand why everything is blowing up. That would put his favorable rating at best at : 30% with an unfavorable at 70%.
Which doesn't prove but definitely supports the reports of why Congress is acting like such ninnies. They're being threatened by the thug in charge.
Who are these other 47 percent? Do they live in caves? Oh wait, sorry, they are spoon fed by the government, and would starve to death if they had to get a job. I dare say they couldn't read a book or balance a check book, they don't know how to care for themselves or their families, as they are, an unwed mother and a bunch of baby's with NO fathers. BUT for an EBT card, an oVomitphone, paid housing and a free ride at every other place in the U.S. They will vote for Whoever will continue to pay their way!
I'd give Obama a 0% and that's too much....
I can't believe they actually disclosed these numbers since they continue to prop his sorry ass up at every turn.
I highly doubt that 47 percent of americans say that things are going well. These polls are BS everyone I talk to gives the prezzy a total thumbs downnnnnnn,
Below all the other 43 Presidents in my book! Almost all the other presidents knew what a marriage is!!!
Goes to show how bad things really are that he is above 5-10% favorable for such a criminal lying bastard loser. America has way to many losers in it now days that anyone would believe that he's doing a good job. Losers everywhere if those polls are correct. Thing is the few are supporting the many losers that now hate those doing the most while the loser complain.
Truth is President Obama is the worst and most dangerous President ever elected to the White House and has brought shame, evil, division, hated and death to America and the media is still portraying him as a great president. What a big mistake.
His favorability should be much lower.
People loved Stalin, Mao, Castro and Lenin even as they were being starved by these men.
Institution like harvard should be closed down or burnt to the ground due to students like Obama, Warren were educated there/radicalized there and then went on to destroy our society and eventually humanity? Is that radical thinking on my part? Anything good coming out of these radical leftist Universities lately? Anyone expect anything different in the future from these leftist run institutions? Just wondering.
