    Hill Poll: Majority Believe obama Has Changed Country For The Worse



    Two-thirds of likely voters say President Obama has kept his 2008 campaign promise to change America — but it’s changed for the worse, according to a sizable majority.

    A new poll for The Hill found 56 percent of likely voters believe Obama’s first term has transformed the nation in a negative way, compared to 35 percent who believe the country has changed for the better under his leadership.

    The results signal broad voter unease with the direction the nation has taken under Obama’s leadership and present a major challenge for the incumbent Democrat as he seeks reelection this fall.

    Conducted for The Hill by Pulse Opinion Research, the poll comes in the wake of last month’s Supreme Court decision that upheld the primary elements of Obama’s signature healthcare legislation.
    It found 68 percent of likely voters — regardless of whether they approve or disapprove of Obama — believe the president has substantially transformed the country since his 2009 inauguration.

    The feeling that Obama has changed the country for the worse is strongest among Republicans, at 91 percent, compared to 71 percent of Democrats who support Obama’s brand of change.

    Strikingly, 1-in-5 Democrats say they feel Obama has changed the United States for the worse.

    No shocker here. The board libtards will avoid this thread like the plague. It pretty much pops their little messiah is going to get reelected fantasy.

    And it highlights how stupid the dems here must be. They're like the last of the few holdouts still left supporting the kenyan.

    Dumbasses.

    Obama

    At a campaign stop in Ohio on Friday, Obama actually said we’re still “heading in the right direction.” Is he kidding? As a stagnant GDP drops below 2 percent, employment falters, retail sales decline, and the ISM index for manufacturing drops below 50 (signaling contraction)? No objective observer can deny that the economy is headed in the wrong direction.

    I don’t like playing the pessimist, but the numbers are the numbers. This is exactly what former Clinton advisers James Carville, Doug Schoen, and Stanley Greenberg have been warning Obama about. People just don’t believe the economy is getting better. So he’s gotta change his message.

    Boy barry wasn't lying. He did change the country. He changed into his vision of socialism and if he gets another chance he'll keep doing it.

    Too funny. They polled more Republicans than Democrats.

    I wouldnt be surprised if the poll was accurate, but I dont take much stock in polls. We all know there are problems with Obama's leadership, that just means we need to step up and be the leaders our communities need.
