NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd describes the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC poll as a disaster for Barack Obama – and says the American people have given up on his presidency.
Based on the results of the new poll, which was conducted last Wednesday and Sunday, WSJ observed:
Americans seem to be losing faith in Mr. Obama’s ability to accomplish his goals, with 54% of those polled saying they no longer feel the president “is able to lead the country and get the job done,” compared with the 42% who said he could. And 41% said his administration’s performance has gotten worse over the past year, compared with the 15% who noted improvement.
Obama’s overall job approval rating remained at 41% – matching his previous low, while approval of his handling of foreign policy hit a new low of 37%. That spells disaster, according to Todd:
“This poll is a disaster for the president. You look at the presidency here: lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.”
