Apparently he's not the confidence-booster-in-chief.

The majority of Americans — nearly 60 percent — lack faith in President Obama, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll published on Tuesday.

The results are the exact opposite of what voters said in a similar poll at the beginning of Obama's presidency 18 months ago. Then, approximately 60 percent said they were confident with his decision making.

And voters, by an 8-point margin, said they hope Republicans take control of Congress. More than 60 percent of voters also said they would probably not support their current representative. Just 26 percent said they would.

It was really funny today watching the White House shills on MSNBC try to spin the poll as a positive for Obama and his commucrats.

No.....60% now question his decision making ability.....they were talking about how 60% believed in him when he took office.

Now, eyes are finally opening!

LOSING faith? Losing?

You can't lose something you never had to begin with! But I'll play...

The poll results don't match the article now..

Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president? I approve. He just has a lot on his plate! 68% WTF?
I disapprove. Just look at the economy and unemployment. 29%
A little bit of both. 3%
I'm not sure. 0%

WOW!!! Looks like it's a bit skeeyoued!!

The majority of americans (whites) think of Obama as an inept, unintelligent N@@@er that is NOT capable of running this country! Next to follow are blacks( amer. Born) who think of him as an Intelligent, articulate man, but with Uncle Tom tendencies who caters to the whites agendas(to please whites). Next are bi-racials/”cobbleasian” types who think of him as their Messiah, mostly because of his ethnicity! Lastly u have just ur straight-up morons who don’t like him for NO apparent reason! Whatever the situation, it ALL sucks any way!

Carville screamed at Obama? No he didn’t stupid people. James Carville is not that stupid to scream at the President of the United States to his face morons. I suggest that you look at the May 25th interview again. Some of you are truly ridiculous LMAO.

Obamas..Katrina —— “Obama is burning the Democrat Party likea c olored church- sit back and enjoy.” —— You know stupid, to equate your feelings about Obama to the burning of Black churches is pretty effing ridiculous, even for your ignorant a/s/s. What’s the matter bytch, some black man take your job, ***** your mother or sisters or daughters??? Did you get your a/s/s handed to you by a brother??? Or is it just p-e-n-i-s envy you’re suffering from??

Obama’s...Katrina says “If you Obamabots had gotten an eductaion [sic] like yours truly”: once again, more condescension from yet another fatuous, sanctimonious, holier-than-thou Republican. You have to admit at least they don’t try to pass themselves off as humble. Commeuppance is way overdue. Btw, I wonder where one goes for that good “eductaion?” [Sic]

Seriously, say you don’t like the President, say you can’t deal with a black man in the White House, say you believe that only repugs should be in office, say even that you don’t know why but you just don’t like him...but, the claim that he is dumb is beyond ridiculous — I guess the next thing you’ll state is that Bush was smart and Cheney was human....lmao.

A survey of 1,288 adults? The likely voter poll must really be bad.

It is possible that Obama hopes the GOP will win the majority in November because then he will have them to blame for all the woes he has brought upon America.
