Obama Shellacked In New Poll
« on: January 22, 2014, 06:47:01 PM »

FOX News Polls:

As President Obama starts his sixth year in office, his job ratings remain near record lows and more voters think his policies have hurt rather than helped the economy.  And even as voters continue to hold mostly negative views on the economy and the direction of the country, a new Fox News poll finds they see some improvement.

A third of voters say they like both Obama and his policies -- a dramatic drop from 47 percent who felt that way in October 2012.  In addition, 62 percent now say they dislike the president’s policies, up from 51 percent the month before his re-election.

Voters aren’t impressed with Obama’s economic policies:  while 27 percent think they’ve helped, a 40-percent plurality says they’ve hurt the economy.  And another 33 percent don’t think the president’s policies have made much difference either way.

Most voters -- 74 percent -- say it still feels like the country is in a recession.  The silver lining for the president is this is an improvement over the 86 percent who felt that way in September 2010.

A 62-percent majority is dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country today.  Still, that’s also an improvement: 73 percent were dissatisfied in October 2013.

Some 37 percent of voters are satisfied with conditions in the U.S., up from 26 percent in October.  Democrats (61 percent) are more than three times as likely as Republicans (19 percent) to feel pleased.

Overall, 42 percent of voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, while 53 percent disapprove.  That’s mostly unchanged from December when 41 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved.

Obama received his highest job approval rating at the beginning of his presidency.  In January 2009, 65 percent of voters approved, 16 percent disapproved and 19 percent were unsure.

His worst job rating was just two months ago when 40 percent approved and 55 percent disapproved (November 2013).
