Most Americans are disappointed in Obama's presidency and concerned about the direction the US is heading
27 February 2014
A new poll has some worrying news for President Barack Obama - most Americans are fed up with his leadership. Many are also deeply worried about the direction in which the country is heading.
The CBS News/New York Times survey revealed on Wednesday that 59 percent of people polled were disappointed in Obama, and 37 percent said they are very disappointed.
While 40 percent of Americans claimed to be satisfied with the president, only 10 percent are 'very satisfied' with Obama's performance so far.

The poll also shows that the president's overall approval rating has dropped since January. While 46 percent of those asked were happy with him last month, this has dropped to 41 percent now.
From Obama's point of view, at least this is higher than the 37 percent approval rating he was getting in November 2013.
According to the survey, only 39 percent approve of the president's handling of foreign policy, and 38 percent agree with the way he has run the education of America's children.
But the president is certainly not the only unpopular politician around. CBS News states that a staggering 79 percent of people are unhappy with the way things are going in Washington DC.

The poll states that 80 percent of people disapprove of Congress and The New York Times reported that Republican John Boehner is even less liked than the president.
House Speaker Boehner had an incredibly low approval rating in this latest poll of just 26 percent.
The tide seems to be turning in favor of same sex marriage. Now 56 percent of those polled support it, one point up from last summer, but a huge swing from 42 percent support in spring 2012.
Yet the results must be a concern for the Democrats as they show the Republicans in a relatively strong position.
The results show that 63 percent of Americans think the country is on the wrong track. And a huge 57 percent disapprove of Obama' s presidency in another vital area - how he has run the economy.
The poll was conducted across the US between February 19 to 23 by landline and cellphone among 1,644 adults.

OBAMA’S WALL STREET-FUNDED WAR on the AMERICAN PEOPLE:
The Democrats’ proposal for a trivial increase in the minimum wage comes as social inequality is hitting unprecedented levels. The net worth of America’s billionaires reached $1.2 trillion last year, more than double what it was in 2009. Meanwhile, median household income in the US plummeted by 8.3 percent between 2007 and 2012.
WALL STREET LOOTS!
THE STAGGERING COST OF OBAMA’S CORPORATE WELFARE PROGRAM:
LIKE HIS CRONY BANKSTERS, Tech CEOs literally got access to the Oval Office while the bill was being shaped, the New York Times reported in those heady early days of Hope and Change, while the CEOs’ lobbyists met down the hall with top economics aide Jason Furman.
OBAMA and his CRONIES BANKRUPT AMERICA… then send the bills for their LOOTING to the AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS
Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama's re-election in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll.
“They knew Obama was an unqualified crook; yet they promoted him. They knew Obama was a train wreck waiting to happen; yet they made him president, to the great injury of America and the world. They understood he was only a figurehead, an egomaniac, and a liar; yet they made him king, doing great harm to our republic (perhaps irreparable.)”
THE OBAMA YEARS – THE GOLDEN AGE OF BANKSTER LOOTING AND BANKSTER WELFARE…
INCEST! The case of bankster-owned Barack Obama and crony Jamie Dimon of JP MORGAN… their looting continues!
'Not when those foibles had resulted in real harm to millions of people in the form of foreclosures, wrecked 401(k)s, and a devastating unemployment crisis.'
