Skip to comments.Poll: Obama No Help to the Middle Class
Posted on 08/01/2013 3:52:31 PM PDT by Nachum
Despite his ongoing campaign to promote his economic agenda, President Obama is having trouble persuading the country that his policies are helping the middle class.
The latest Monmouth University poll finds that a plurality of Americans think Wall Street and other elites have been served better than the middle class by the president. Only 12 percent of Americans said middle class families have greatly benefited from Obama's policies, while 46 percent said they haven't benefited at all and an additional 39 percent say they have benefited only a "little."

There is considerable skepticism that Obama's policies have been of much benefit to any groups. But the haves are seen as benefiting more than the have-nots, according to the poll. Forty-four percent said Wall Street bankers had been helped "a lot" by Obama; 35 percent said wealthy families had benefited a lot, along with health insurance companies at 34 percent, poor families at 20 percent and middle class families at only 12 percent.
Obama has been emphasizing his middle-class agenda in a series of speeches around the country, but it apparently isn't having much impact so far. "Given President Obama's track record with the middle class, this new focus may be seen as too little too late," said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute in West Long Branch, N.J., in a prepared statement. "Of course, some of the problem may lie in the acrimonious relationship between the president and the House of Representatives," which is controlled by Republicans.

Obama is no help to the large majority of Americans although many continue to support this evil being. He is of great help to the millions of lazy government employees and to the hierarchy of a political military.
The homosexuals love him.
Well, the GOP, as currently constituted, isn’t any help either.
That’s the problem we have right about now.
‘The homosexuals love him.’
Well, he certainly hired enough of them
The Occupiers still love him....until they get the bill for welfare and Obamacare.
obama no help nowhere, noway, nohow. End of story.
So 51% think hes done at least some good somehow some way somewhere? TRUELY it is OVER.
P.S. F U NSA stooges
But then again, that's his goal.
“So 51% think hes done at least some good somehow some way somewhere? TRUELY it is OVER.”
Yes they do, and he could probably win a third term.
The 51 percent have been made brain dead by pubic education and a Marxist media that thinks of him as God, even though he is a Marxist, illegal alien, and atheist.
I agree, it truly is over. I will remain offshore.
Obamanomics don’t trickle down, or up, or to the sides.
“... pubic education ...”
That wasn’t just a typo or a sly double entendre, was it? Because that is a large part of the malfeasance of the trust in our educational system today, teaching “tolerance” and “safe sex” to youngsters with skulls full of mush.
Bammy is conducting a WAR on the middle class.
“That wasnt just a typo or a sly double entendre, was it?”
No, it was not a typo :)
given that he wants to destroy the middle class, not surprised.
all that will be left will be the inner party elites and everyone else, the proles.
Guess that’s why zero was such good buddies with chavez.
