    President Barack Obama had an average approval rating of 47.9 percent during his time in office, according to the Gallup poll. That puts him behind Richard Nixon, who resigned, and George W. Bush, who saw his approval rating drop as low as 25 percent near the end of his term. It puts him ahead of only Gerald Ford (47.2 percent), Jimmy Carter (45.5 percent) and Harry Truman (45.4 percent). …
  • Obama Reflects on 2016: I Wasn’t Able to ‘Transfer My Personal Popularity’ to Democrats

    During last night’s NBC Dateline special on President Obama‘s legacy, the outgoing Commander-in-Chief reflected on 2016 and the “surprise” he felt at Donald Trump‘s win. He told Lester Holt that he thinks he and his team are pretty good at seeing things coming––but not Trump’s victory. Part of that, Obama said, is due to the fact that the polling was so off. He admitted there was a lot of disappointment at Hillary Clinton‘s loss, as well as the broader loss for the Democratic party. Obama conceded, “I had trouble transferring my personal popularity or support to the broader cause of...

    Even at the end of his second term, Barack Obama is finding ways to blame others for his failures. At the beginning of his presidency, everything was George W. Bush’s fault. After several years — and long after the Bush-blaming had outstayed its welcome — Obama finally found a new scapegoat. Suddenly, all of the administration’s shortcomings had to do with a racist electorate. At one point Obama even claimed that racism holds all black people back, including his own family. It was an absurd argument from a man who was elected twice to be President of the United States....

    African-Americans are extremely supportive of President Obama, but their enthusiasm appears to have dramatically dropped from earlier this year, according to a new national poll. The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey, released Tuesday, also indicates that Obama's presidency appears to have made blacks more optimistic about race relations, but less than one in five believe the new president has ushered in a new era of race relations in the country. More than nine in 10 blacks questioned in the poll approve of the job Obama's doing in the White House, far higher than 42 percent of whites who approve of...

    More than at any time in memory, the United States faces a choice this fall between unpopular presidential candidates. Most voters view Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump with disdain. Yet one popular politician looms over the contest. That’s President Obama, who this spring has seen his approval rating again creep past 50 percent. For Democrats hoping to hold the White House, that has come at just the right time.

Clarke used Obama’s mistake of “gutting of the 1033 Program as an...
  • Gallup Poll: Obama Favorable Rating Up, Best Since September 2013

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' favorable ratings of President Barack Obama now stand at 53%, up four points from March. This comes after a year in which these ratings were mostly below 50% and marks the president's highest score since September 2013. A president's favorable ratings are distinct from approval of his performance; job approval ratings generally tend to be lower. For the Obama presidency, Gallup trends show the two measures have changed largely in tandem. As Obama's approval rating has rebounded nine percentage points from a low of 37% last fall, his favorable rating has increased 11 points from 42%....

    While American Jews have supported US President Barack Obama significantly more than the general population in survey polls, that gap is narrowing, Gallup reported Friday—and disparagement is highest among the most religious. Survey polls conducted over the past 6 years of Obama’s presidency usually indicate a gap of at least 12-13 percentage points between American Jews’ approval and the general population, but that has since dwindled to barely 8 percentage points. 54% of American Jews and 46% of the general population approved of Obama's work during the first quarter of 2015, according to the most recent survey. The results are...

    With six years down and just two left in which to build a legacy, President Barack Obama has posted his lowest-ever average annual approval rating. A Gallup poll finds that Obama, in the one-year period between Jan. 20, 2014, and Monday, posted an approval average of just 42.6 percent. During their sixth year in office, Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon showed their lowest approval rating as well, with the sixth-year approval rating of every president since 1945 averaging just 45.5 percent, Politico notes. President George W. Bush tapped out the lowest at 37.3 percent, while President Bill...
