A plurality of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, a new poll says.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 33 percent of voters think the current president is the worst since 1945.
 
Obama’s predecessor, former President George W. Bush, came in at second-worst with 28 percent, and Richard Nixon was in third place with 13 percent of the vote. After Jimmy Carter, who 8 percent of voters said was the worst president in the time period, no other president received more than 3 percent.
 
 
Thirty-five percent of voters said Ronald Reagan was the best president since World War II, receiving nearly twice as many votes as any other former president. Bill Clinton came in second place at 18 percent, while John F. Kennedy came in third with 15 percent of the vote and Obama came in fourth with 8 percent saying he was the best.
All other remaining presidents received 5 percent or less. Five percent of voters said Dwight D. Eisenhower was the best president since 1945, while 4 percent said Harry Truman. Lyndon Johnson and George H.W. Bush each received 3 percent. George W. Bush came in at 1 percent.
Forty-five percent of voters said the U.S. would be better off with Mitt Romney serving in the White House, compared to 38 percent who said the country would be in worse shape.
The survey comes as Obama in recent weeks has found his popularity at the lowest levels of his presidency.
The Quinnipiac poll reported more bad news about the president’s approval and competency ratings. Forty percent of voters approve of the job Obama is doing, compared with 53 percent who disapprove. Fifty-four percent of voters say the Obama administration is not competent at running the government.
The survey was conducted June 24-30 with 1,446 registered voters on land lines and cellphones. The margin for error is plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

Worst congress since ever.  Not the president's fault - you can't say someone isn't doing a good job while at the same time preventing them from doing their job.

while i agree with the headline i have serious doubts about this statistics... (i also count reagan clinton and kennedy the best not in a special order because it was different times for each)  but if so many think obama is by far the worst they should have chosen the possibility to elect a much better and stronger leader in nov 2k12. the chance was there and it was historic. while mitt warned everyone about russia being geopolitical foe n1, obama was openly promising putin more "flexibility" after the election!

Poll doesn't count when you asking only Racist bigots their opinions on the president.

33%? That's nowhere close to even being half. How does that make him the worst?

Could it be that the average American has finally realized that his empty promises were pointless?  There may be hope for us all yet!

Quinnipiac University's in Connecticut (Conn. is Democrat territory), and polls its are actually rather easy on Democrats as they over-sample them. They don't sample what you presumed.

Very well stated.

What's interesting that the percentage total for both Worse and Best for Obama tallies to a total of 41% where's the other 59%?

 

Why is the total for Worse across all presidents is 100% (same for Best)?

 

The survey was conducted June 24-30 with 1,446 registered voters on land lines and cellphones. The margin for error is plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

 

That's a pretty small amount of people to poll.

It's about right for a properly sampled poll. All more samples do is narrow the margin for error, and at 2.6% it wouldn't change the results.

By interpreting the text of the article, this thread could quite easily also be titled "Obama fourth best President since WWII". But I guess that particular 'spin' wouldn't fit with this poster's 'agenda'.

 

 

Thirty-five percent of voters said Ronald Reagan was the best president since World War II, receiving nearly twice as many votes as any other former president. Bill Clinton came in second place at 18 percent, while John F. Kennedy came in third with 15 percent of the vote and Obama came in fourth with 8 percent saying he was the best.
