CNN Poll: President Obama Down to 41% Job Approval & a Mere 40% Say President Can Manage the Government Effectively
DOWN, DOWN, DOWN … AMERICA SUDDENLY FIGURES OUT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR HAS NO LEADERSHIP SKILLS …
According to the most recent CNN poll, Barack Obama’s approval rating is down to 41%, while 57% disapprove. This is an astonishing -16% mark for Obama in a CNN poll. But the terrible polling and Americans anger for Obama does not end there. The poll stated that only 40% think that Obama can manage the government effectively. OUCH, down 12% from June. But I would ask the question, what ever made Americans think that a community agitator with no management experience could manage the US government? Obama’s polling troubles don’t end there … 56% say he is not a person they admire, and 56% also say he does not agree with them on important issues. And wait, there is more, 56% say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. Other than that, things are going swimmingly for the President,[sarcasm intended].
Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.
And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.
According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.
“A lot of attention has focused on the President’s numbers on honesty in new polling the past three weeks, but it looks like the recent controversy over Obamacare has had a bigger impact on his status as an effective manager of the government, and that may be what is really driving the drop in Obama’s approval rating this fall,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.
