Obama … Carter’s Second Term on Steroids: Americans’ Satisfaction Almost as Low as It Was Under Carter
The sycophant MSM liken Barack Obama to Lincoln and Reagan. Wrong, Obama is Jimmy Carter …
President Barack Obama is looking to eclipse yet another dubious record. With just nine months to go before the 2012 Presidential election, only 22% of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going.Yet another dragging indicator for Obama ahead of the election. What voter who is on the fence is going to vote for an incumbent who so many believe is taking the country in the wrong direction? Just a mere 22% say they are satisfied. That number seems rather high in my opinion.
It’s February, nine months before a presidential election, and only 22 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going. Voters haven’t been this unhappy with the country since George H.W. Bush’s presidency, when only 21 percent of Americans reported being happy with the country’s direction. And before that, the lowest approval rating was 19 percent during Jimmy Carter’s first term.
What do the two presidencies have in common? Neither of them won re-election. And, if the trends holds true, Obama looks to be in an equally precarious situation. [Read about the 10 Worst Presidents.]
