Obamanomics: 39% Now Blame Obama Economic Policies for Bad Economy … Up 12! Obama Slipping in Economic Trust of the People
Drip, drip, drip … American confidence in Obama economic policies eroding. Is it any wonder why Obama wants to pass his socialist, big government agenda ASAP.
Although a majority of Americans still hold the Bush Administration responsible for the United States economic problems, according to a recent Rasmussen poll there is a growing number of people now blaming President Barack Obama for the economy.
More important than the snap shot in time of a poll is the trending data. Voters are starting to blame the man in office for the economy and his policies as after all, the buck does stop with the President. This would tend to say that Americans no longer want to hear what one inherited, they want results.
While most U.S. voters still blame the Bush Administration for the nation’s economic problems, a growing number are inclined to blame President Barack Obama.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of voters now say the country’s economic problems are caused more by the policies Obama has put in place. That’s a 12-point jump from a month ago.
In another interesting set of data is the overwhelming majority of Americans who put more trust in themselves than they do big government. 60% of “We the People” have more confidence in our own economic judgment than that of the President.
By a two-to-one margin, voters also have more confidence in themselves than in the president when it comes to the economy. This marks a significant shift from just after Obama took office.
Sixty percent (60%) of voters now trust their own economic judgment more than the president’s. In early February, 49% had more trust in themselves while 39% trusted the president more.
Now only 30% trust Obama more when it comes to the economic issues facing the nation.
