Obama Leadership Takes A Hit, Poll Says

August 26, 2011 by  

The numbers also indicate that the approval rating for the President has reached a new low, as only 43 percent of Americans approve of what the commander in chief has done.According to a Pew Research Center Poll, more than 86 percent of Americans who were polled said that they are frustrated or angry with the Federal government and the work that it has done.

A record high number of individuals believe that President Barack Obama is not a strong leader and half of the country feels that he is unable to get things done that are necessary to run the nation, The Washington Post reported.

The numbers also indicate that the approval rating for the President has reached a new low, as only 43 percent of Americans approve of what the Commander in Chief has done. More telling is the number of citizens who very strongly disapprove of his actions, 38 percent, according to the newspaper.

Poll numbers from the Pew Research Center also show that fewer Democrats now support the actions that Obama has taken, as a 10 percent drop has occurred among his constituents.

The polling numbers came at an inopportune time for the President, due to the recent lack of support that has been shown by the labor leaders of the AFL-CIO, The Washington Times reported.
