Obama Worst President Since World War II, More Say US Would Be Better Under Romney, Latest Poll Finds

Tyler Durden's picture

The president is increasingly finding that telling the Mr. Chairmanwoman to rig the market to all time highs does not translate to a comparable popularity rating. In fact, just the opposite.

While Obama's slide in the polls is nothing new, the latest data from the Quinnipiac University Poll is about as bad as it gets for the president: in fact, perhaps the only thing more shocking than Obama "surpassing" George W. Bush as the worst president since World War II is the onset of revisionism, with some 45% saying the US would have been better with Romney as president, compared to just 38% who say Obama remains the better choice. Which incidentally confirms what we reported yesterday: while the Republican view of Obama has certainly never been lower, what is worse is that even the core democrat faithful are now giving up on the hope and change bringer, confirmed by the latest Gallup poll which saw democrat confidence in the economy tumbling to the lowest level for 2014.

More from Washington Times:

With Mr. Obama deploying military troops to Iraq, failing to find compromise with Congress and seeing major defeats in the Supreme Court, voters continue to sour on him.


Quinnipiac found 45 percent of voters say the country would have been better off if Mr. Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, had been election, while just 38 percent say Mr. Obama remains a better choice. Even Democrats aren’t so sure — just 74 percent of them told the pollsters Mr. Obama was clearly the better pick in the last election.


Voters also rate him the worst president since World War II, topping even his predecessor, President George W. Bush, who had left office with terrible ratings.


“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.


A Zogby Analytics Poll released Wednesday also found Mr. Obama slipping — in that survey, to 44 percent approval, while his disapproval leapt 4 percentage points from last month to reach 54 percent.


Nearly half of voters told the Zogby poll that Mr. Obama is “unable to lead the country.”

And now, back to hoping and praying that by rigging the Dow Jones above the "psychological level" of 17,000, voters will finally notice and give Obama his due.

Obama "failing to compromise in congress"?

Oh, he'll just bypass em.

Yeah....bad President.....but a pretty good despot!

Jimmy Carter can now rest in peace.

Obama is about to set the record. U...S...A! U...S...A! U...S...A!

He's incompetent.  It only gets worse from that point.

Still gonna give him the benefit of just being incompetent I see.

NoDebt's picture

No, incompetent is IN ADDITION TO lazy, arrogant, treasonous, murderous, and criminally negligent.

When the American people say they think Romney would have been exactly the same as Obama then we'll know we're getting somewhere.

Don't lump all 'Mericans into  the same pile.

More and more are waking up everyday, this poll is proof positive of that fact.

Unfortunately, it may be too late as I believe, we are past the tipping point.

Vichy DC will not heal itself. Voting for change may be a zero sum game as well.

But stop with all the generalizations already!

At least Bush’s tyranny and evil was conducted in secret, not “In your face”.

Exactly, it wouldn't matter who was in the placeholder role of "president". There has not been a real president since the coup of '63. As the cabal continues to tighten it's strangle hold, the executive branch will become more and more tyrannical. My prediction, there will be a another massive "terrorist" attack, the cabal will blame it on this new ISIS group they have invented, and we will be placed into a state of permanent marshal law.

Probably because he can't prove he is American and is a Manchurian Candidate.

this ^ and "another manchurian candidate" remember bill question mark past clinton?

remember when he tryied to pick winners in the solar industry? lol whew that cost us!

Save_America1st's picture

he's the presidential puppet version of a Marxist/Fascist Overton Window, trying to throw us so far left towards tyranny and authoritarianism in hopes that America will never survive it and never get back to anything resembling freedom as it should be. 

Quus Ant's picture

Awww.. isn't that cute... the rabble thinks there is an alternative.  That this would be better than that.  That corporatist Romney would have slowed the fascist march, brought the troops home and held our hands through childbirth.  Queue up the next savior, boys.  And make him a Bush.


"When the American people say they think Romney would have been exactly the same as Obama then we'll know we're getting somewhere." BigJim

No alternative on the ballot or the survey.  Would you like a kick in the groin or a punch in the balls?

"Punch in the balls, please......."

I wouldn't count the Democrats out yet.  I'm sure they can come up with well worse candidates.  Just think if Kerry was elected, or Hilary.  She can't even preach jive to her southern voters.

We will be getting somewhere when None of Above is on the ballot and all the voters pick it.

Look into alternating current.  It gets the job done.

Probably his documentation shows he passed himself off as foreign throughout his academic years, for the boost that gave him then, sorta like fauxcahontas of Massachusetts.   That's one very likely reason no records about that have been leaked, never mind released on purpose.  The long form birth certificate probably has something else very problematic, as he was perhaps a bastard, or his actual father was the American communist and pornographer his mom had been around at the time of his conception. 

GeezerGeek's picture

If his father had, in fact, been an American communist then Barack would, at least, be a natural born citizen. Take that, you Birthers!

TBT or not TBT's picture

Frank Marshal Davis.   Obama refers to him as "pop" or something close to that in one of his two autobiographies.  His mom and grandparents made a point of having Obama see Frank as a mentor.   One kinda cool thing is resemblance.   Obama looks a lot more like Frank than he does his nominal Kenyan father.   

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

The similarity is uncanny.

And wouldn't you know it, O's power base is Chicago, Frank Marshall Davis' old haunt.

Lost Word's picture

Obama as Natural Born citizen because Obama true son of Frank Marshall Davis?

Only if the illegitimate Son of the illegitimate Father could be proved in a court of law.

Otherwise the Birth Certificate Father is the Legal Father, thus Obama NOT Legal Natural Born citizen.

Obama would be happy to have the Communist Frank Marshall Davis as his legal father,

so why doesn't Obama make that claim for being Natural Born citizen?

Presumably because it is Untrue.

auto solved problem.


the main problem is not  who is set in charge, the problem is who set in charge.


you elected him for a 2nd run, so pls, take your own responsabilities.

Compared to W and other racist assholes the GOP puts up, I'm glad he's our president.  

Asshats like Barre who don't like him means the country is going in the right direction.

Ah yes, the old "if you didn't vote for O you must be a racist" card

Never mind that O is kind of a racist himself, but black racism is OK, right? It's only when whitey does it that it's bad!

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

I think you are right DaddyO. In my view the ones at the lower end are starting to get it. My demographic, not so much.

Goes to show duress can help one to enlightenment. I sincerely hope they will understand the true enemies when it blows. In the French Revolution they guillotined the bad guys and then turned on the innocent, thirsty for blood. Nature, when out of balance for so long tends to over correct.

Am I too late to try a Top Gear anti-reality show?

Except, I really can't be that deceptive ;-)

"We are the ones we have been waiting for." - who said that? No, its not who everyone thinks it was, it was...June Jones.


How about, "Yes we can!" - again, no...that was Sponge Bob Square Pants...lol.


The realization of what audacity really is (and the danger of a spellbound gullible public) may be the best things to come out of this debacle.

I am struggling at times to find some hope in all of this. Courage is needed now but near the end when all is lost it may not be necessary. I am thankful every day I have now knowing what may be our future.

That's because the Permanent Government selects the sock puppets that you choose from.

People are still this stupid?!  How depressing.  That this many people think things would be any different in a fundamental way if the other establishment candidate were in office is the most damning information possible.  How is it possible after the past 14 years that anyone can think R and D offering different flavors of sugar is the solution to our national "political diabetes" epidemic?

More_sellers_than_buyers's picture

typical anti establishment response.  If Romney were elected it would make a HUGE difference.  Every FUCK YOU decision made by this POTUS would not be happening.

Grande Tetons's picture

Edit. I can not sensibly reply. 


NoDebt's picture

Then allow me, Teton.....

Yes, Romney would be making a whole different batch of bad decisions.

TuPhat's picture

Let me try that too...

Yes, Romney would be blaming a whole different set of people for the problems.

GeezerGeek's picture

Had Romney been elected, we would now see a very active, concerned MSM monitoring every miniscule misstep made by the POTUS. That is the only reason I can see to have voted for a Republican in the last decade or three: the press would actually be acting as a watchdog.
