Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released on Wednesday which showed that 33% of the poll respondents named him the worst President since World War II, the highest percentage from among the twelve US Presidents who served in office since World War II. None of the other Presidents received 33%.
Additionally, the poll showed that a significant majority of Americans believe the country "would be better off than it is today" if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election instead of Barack Obama. 45% hold that view, while 38% believe the country would be worse off with Romney in office.
The poll also showed that, on his handling of most key issues, the President has significantly high disapproval ratings.
Among those key issues:
55% of Americans disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling the economy, 40% approve.
57% of Americans disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling foreign policy, 37% approve.
58% of Americans disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling health care, 40% approve.
