58% DISAPPROVE OF OBAMA’S HANDLING OF VA SCANDAL …
According to a recent CNN poll, Barack Obama get’s extremely poor scores on his handling of the Veterans Administration scandal. The poll shows that a whopping 58% disapprove of Obama’s handing of the VA scandal, while only 37% approve. It is just the latest scandal during the Obama presidency as they are adding up more than the number of Americans gaining jobs. However, the VA scandal is just one of many important issues where Obama is failing Americans. Obama fails on the economy, 61% disapprove – 38% approve. Obama fails on healthcare 63% disapprove – 36% approve. Obama fails on foreign affairs 57% disapprove – 40% approve. Obama fails on the federal budget deficit 67% disapproval – 31% approval.
Nearly six in ten Americans give President Barack Obama a thumbs-down on how he is handling the Veterans Affairs controversy, according to a new national poll.
But a CNN/ORC International survey released Tuesday indicates that the scandal at VA hospitals doesn’t seem to be affecting the President’s overall approval rating, which remains at 43%, identical to the last CNN poll conducted a month ago. The survey also indicates that Obama scores some of his highest numbers on the environment and terrorism, two other issues in the spotlight this week.
According to the poll, 58% say they disapprove of how the President’s handling the VA scandal, with 37% saying they approve of Obama’s actions.
The Veterans Affairs controversy has mushroomed since CNN first reported last November on allegations of alarming shortcomings within the VA medical care system that potentially have had deadly consequences in dozens of cases.
