Obama’s job approval rating falls below 50 percent
Pluck any conscientious American from anywhere in the US, put them in the White House and they’ll perform better than Mr Obama.
President Obama has shown NO Leadership qualities, NO management skills, NEAR Zero concern for ordinary Americans and TOTAL Lack of awareness on real issues.
Unsurprisingly, only 49 percent of Americans approved of Obama’s job performance, a major Gallup Poll revealed. His approval rating after taking office in January was just short of 70 percent.
Quinnipiac University, which conducted a similar survey, put his approval rating at 48 percent.
Gallup cites poor state of the U.S. economy, millions of Americans out of work and other issues for Obama’s dismal performance.
“Americans are also concerned about the Obama administration’s reliance on government spending to solve the nation’s problems and the growing federal budget deficit,” Gallup said after they surveyed 1,533 people this week. The margin of error was 4 points.
“Democrat Obama became the fourth-fastest U.S. president since World War Two to drop below majority support in the Gallup poll, following Republican Gerald Ford, Democrat Bill Clinton and Republican Ronald Reagan.” Reuters reported.
“Nevertheless, in politics symbols matter and this is not a good symbol for the White House… Moreover, the percentage who approve of the way he is handling the economy has dropped from a split 47-46 percent approval in October to 52-43 percent disapproval today.” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said.
America, the world, need leaders who care about people, not bow to power!
