CBS Poll: Job Approval 51% Disapprove, 41% Approve … 59% of Americans Are Disappointed in Barack Obama’s Presidency
NEARLY 60% OF AMERICANS DISAPPOINTED IN OBAMA PRESIDENCY …
According to the most recent CBS poll, 59% of Americans say that they are disappointed with Barack Obama’s presidency. This includes 91% of Republicans, 66% of Independents and even 24% of Democrats. Even more troubling for Obama is that 40% of Independents are “very disappointed” and only 6% are “very satisfied”. As the economy struggles and more people experience the perils of Obamacare, Obama’s numbers continue to slide.
Barack Obama’s approval rating has also sunk to 41%, with a 51% disapproval. This is down 5 points in since January 2014.
Amid continued pessimism about the economy and direction of the country, 59 percent of Americans say they are disappointed in Mr. Obama’s presidency (including 37 percent who are very disappointed); 40 percent are satisfied. Much of this discontent comes from Republicans and independents, but a quarter of Democrats express at least some disappointment.
Disappointment with Barack Obama’s presidency has grown since the summer of 2012, and much of that rise has been among independents. Forty percent of independents say they are very disappointed today, up from 27 percent in August 2012.
