Fox Poll: One in Four Say Obama 'One of the Worst Presidents'
NewsMax ^ | December 27, 2013 | Drew MacKenzie

Posted on 12/28/2013 9:43:25 AM PST by Zakeet

A new poll has found that the number of Americans who think President Barack Obama is "one of the worst presidents" in history has increased by 5 percent over the past year.

The Fox News survey of 1,027 registered voters reveals that more than one in four respondents, a record high of 28 percent, believe he'll go down as one of the worst. In a similar survey taken last December, 23 percent of respondents felt that way.

In 2009, after less than a year in office, only 16 percent felt that he would turn out to be one of the worst presidents.

[Snip]

Taking the rating a step further, six percent of respondents described him as the "greatest" president, compared to 12 percent who saw him that way a year ago.

When questioned about his trustworthiness, a record low of 49 percent said he is not "honest and trustworthy," compared to 45 percent who still believe he is.

Another 10 percent of respondents who voted for Obama said they actually regret their votes now.

He definitely has displaced Jimmy Carter. After all, Carter had the good grace to lose the election of 1980, and never got a second term.

The entity once known as “the United States of America” had lost its one great advantage - informed voters with an attention span longer than that of a guppy or a gnat.

Either only asked college students, Jews, African-Americans, or took the poll in CA or NY. No conservatives were queried. You can take that to the bank if only 1 in 4 said it. Ask anyone or anywhere else and the answer will almost always be 0.

Yeah, about right. What percentage of people get their news and information from the MSM? Me, I don’t think he is one of the worst, I think he is the worst, by such a wide margin second place can’t even see him.

Most people who voted for him will never admit they now know it was a foolish thing to do.

They wanted to prove to doubters that a lazy, air-headed, bisexual, liberal black socialist with no real life work experience could manage the largest business enterprise on earth.

They would rather die than admit they were wrong.

And now, thanks to the Obamacare Death Panels, they will probably get that chance much sooner than expected.

Anyone who was fooled into voting for him in 2008 deserves pity.

Everyone who voted for him in 2012 deserve contempt.

Lincoln- His war shattered the republic and the nation almost bled to death in a war to keep 11 states in a union that quite frankly has proven to be useless, actually harmful to liberty.

That is a fairly high(or low) bar to top.

Excellent comment. I especially have contempt for the idiots who voted for him in ‘12 because “he was better than Romney”. Really? How’s that working for you now, Idjits?

Wilson- The progressive movement amended and ruined the US Constitution under his watch. FDR,LBJ,RMN and Zero are just extensions of the original progressive sin created by and under President Wilson.

The jury is still out.. Just in my lifetime there have been some real doozies.. FDR, Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, and who can forget, (BJ) Clinton, are tough acts to follow, but he is certainly knocking at the door..

Let me put it this way, the United States of America
could not survive a worse president and the chances
of us surviving Obama grow smaller every day.

One in four can recognize and state the obvious.

Two in four also recognize the obvious but are afraid they will be considered racist if they tell the truth.

One in four hope to be among the few winners under socialism.

And one of the worst? Are they serious? LMAO, even the folks asking the question are clueless wonders.

There isn’t a president who even comes close, and that’s saying something with Jimmy the WMD enabler out there.

I’d like to know if the 75% could name 5 presidents that were worse than obama.

My guess is they can’t. They will all start with Bush, then Nixon, then... uh. Lemmee think... Oh, yeah!! Palin and Romney!!

(I’d also like to know if they could name ANY 5 presidents.)

“Two in four also recognize the obvious but are afraid they will be considered racist if they tell the truth.”

Exactly what I was thinking. I bet some of those did not want to be percieved as racist and therefore did not want to vote in the “worst” column.

He was a square peg in a round hole, and all through history he will also carry the albatross of not being qualified in the first place to even be a POTUS.

Honest and trustworthy!? Ha, he is a known, proven liar. I wouldn’t trust him with pocket change. Those people obviously see only what they want to see and refuse to make an objective assessment of the liar in chief.

You got the socialised medicine program you personally voted for.

Me, I didn’t vote for either Barack Obamacare or Mitt Romneycare.
You got what you wanted to a large extent. We who opposed it will make you own it.

Carter was probably worse in my mind, but he is very close. It is so sad that we re-elected him with his poor record, especially on the economy and his bad health care law.
