Several recent polls have shown that the majority of the American people are disappointed with President Obama’s handling of the Afghanistan war and his overall job performance. Adding to this bleak picture, a new survey has found that most people don’t trust the president on the economy, either.
He may have assumed office in the middle of a global recession and a near-financial meltdown at home, but U.S. voters still give Obama poor marks on the economy, with 68 percent saying they disapprove of the job he’s doing on that front, according to a Harris Interactive Poll.
By contrast, only 32 percent give him positive marks.
Moreover, the survey found that the negative views are growing, as last month 64 percent were disappointed, while 35 percent supported the president’s strategy. In addition, while almost all Republicans surveyed (95 percent) opposed the government’s economic performance, nearly 2 in 5 Democrats held the same view (38 percent).
