CNN Poll: 58% Disapprove of Barack Obama’s Handling of the VA Scandal, As Some How 37% Approve



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.


Real Clear Politics: Poll: Majority Unhappy With Obama’s Handling of VA Woes.

Obama accepted VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s resignation “with considerable regret” last week after a report by the VA inspector general found a longstanding pattern or wrongdoing by agency personnel.

Just 22 percent of those surveyed believe Shinseki should have remained in office, while 68 percent say he should have resigned.

Wait until America voices their opinion with Barack Obama on the release of alleged deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for 5 Taliban detainees in GITMO.

      that 37% has to be the non working obama supporters and the illegal mexicans that he has allowed to flood our borders.

      obama has been aware of the situation for quite a long time but, as usual, did absolutely nothing about it. How does 37% even stomach this monster? The rest of us can’t!!!!

      It’s inconceivable as to what this foul, evil POS has done to this country. He hates America!!!! He is never short of reminding us that he is the President and as he told one diplomat I like being President because I can do whatever I want. Isn’t that a mouth full????

      Just what was his latest short, secret visit to Afghanistan all about. What did he do meet with taliban leaders and invited them onto Air Force One???? And then, shortly after, he releases 5 of the worst terrorists in the world. obama is a muslim, born in kenya, his grandmother was there when he was born, he supports his muslim terrorist brothers. Quite obvious. Crystal clear.

      His whole life from early on has been nothing but lie, after lie after lie. Deceit, dishonest, malicious, conniving, manipulating, dangerous, threatening, and way, way more is barack hussein obama. He is the destruction of America!!!! How he has gotten away with with 1/10th of his crimes is beyond frightening.
