Poll: Obama 'worst president' since World War II

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


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, and 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%).

Obama received only 8% in the best presidents poll.

The Quinnipiac poll also reports that 45% believe the nation would be better off had Mitt Romney defeated Obama in the 2012 presidential election; 38% say the country would be worse off with a Romney presidency.

For those of you who totally believe in "POLLS", this one's for you.

The Quinnipiac poll also reports that 45% believe the nation would be better off had Mitt Romney defeated Obama in the 2012 presidential election;

If the mere prospect of an Obama Presidency is still, "Scaring the shyte out of you", beyond this point then you must have a problem. It is all over now. Obama and Bill and Hillary are all in retirement. You don't have to be scared anymore. It all turned out just fine. Your long nightmare is finally over...

Our problem today is Trump!

Sorry to see that you don't read or understand much posted in the comment ahead of yours.  The highlighted area VERY SPECIFICALLY states that 45% of the NATION believed Romney was better than Obama.

Trump is not the point of discussion.

After Trump's glorious years in office, will come Nikki Haley as America's first female president.

Trump's approval rating has soared to 48%

What IS the point of the discussion 1st?

You seed states: 

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll

Yet the linked poll and the statement you think is so poignant is 5 YEARS OLD. 

The highlighted area VERY SPECIFICALLY states that 45% of the NATION believed Romney was better than Obama.

That's false. Your link doesn't say anything SPECIFICALLY about the NATION. The poll you cite surveyed a whole 1,446 registered voters 5 YEARS AGO.

She/He/It questioned the word 'serious', which was a response to 1.1.3, where the poster didn't believe Trump's 48% approval. You too, can end your obtusian game an google it yourself, by the fucking way.

Except the one overarching fact you are steadfastly refusing to acknowledge is that this year, just as in each of the ten last ten years, Barack Hussein Obama is The Most Admired Most Respected Man in the World and Donald Trump is not and he never ever will be...

History will be the final judge. In the case of our two controversial recent Presidents, the liberal media had a lot to do with public perception. Ultimately, Presidents will be judged by their performance in office. Trump hasn't completed his term/terms as of yet. Obama on the other hand, ruined whatever legacy he might have had by over reaching in his attempt to transform the nation. When Hillary Clinton failed to win in 2016, any chance for Obama's Presidency having any lasting effect was over, the Obama vision of America was quickly gutted by Donald Trump.

Such a petty, vindictive, spiteful, hateful little 'man' this turd of a 'president' is.  Had to tear down everything good President Obama was able to do.  

While he and his henchmen, the thugs, thieves, grifters in  his cabinet and many of his gop peers quickly rape, loot, pillage and gut America as they go.

"President Obama’s warning to those championing Britain’s exit from the EU was stark: Leave, he said, and the “U.K. is going to be in the back of the queue” on trade deals with the U.S."

Yea, that asshole Trump shouldn't be meddling?

Polls sure are interesting - and SO reliable. eh?  They put Obama as the second best President and the second worst President out of 13 simultaneously.

Surely, by now, nobody is so naive to not realize that polls are so easily manipulated depending on the bias of the pollster, the questions that are asked and the demographic of the persons questioned. I consider that Gallup and Pew may be the most reliable and least biased.

wow i just was watching game 2 of the NBA finals and President Obama stood and waved after being introduced and the crowd chanted MVP.

My point is that he is out of office and having a great time going here and there, doing this and that,  and traveling the world. 

And here you are posting this crap..........can we move on .....1st ? ugh smh

Interestingly enough most Native American leaders and tribal members see Obama as one of the best Presidents for Indians. 

Since this poll is 5 years old, do you have anything a bit more in time with today?

Actually he did better then the majority of American Presidents for Indians. And a hell of a lot better than anything the current administration has or is doing for Indians.

For the U.S. as a whole - not even close.

Have to call BS on that opinion. Facts certainly dispute it.

I generally don't care who resides in the White house as long as they don't start wars and the economy is good.

It's not out of the realm of possibility that Charlie Manson could stay out of wars and have a "good" economy. Or Al Capone. Or David Duke or Louis Farrakhan.  The character of the country is seen through the leader. What you are advocating is anarchy and apathy.

Slowest recovery ever from a recession.

I wonder if it would have been faster had our republican congress actually made the attempt to help in some way? The 113th congress was the 2nd least productive congress in history. But then, this is the same congress that said, "making Obama a one term president is our number one goal!". Obama asked that congress for 3.7 billion to work on the immigration problem. Know what John Boner said? "NO!!!!!". But trump asks for 25 billion and the right wing is tripping over themselves trying to support the idea? 

Please, save it. 

But even without their help, Obama got us out of the worst recession since 1929. Longest trend of ADDING jobs per month in US history. 

How anyone can say Obama was a terrible economic president is beyond me...

Don't let facts get in the way.

Indeed you shouldn't. I posted facts, you are posting blogs and opinions from people that hated Obama no matter what he did.
