Poll: Majority Find Obama Not Trustworthy Or Honest

The free-fall of Obama’s poll numbers continues

(Politico) A majority of Americans think President Barack Obama is untrustworthy, according to a new poll that also found doubts about the president’s management abilities.

Fifty-three percent believe Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the CNN/ORC poll released Monday shows, noting a “clear majority” for the first time on this issue since the president took office.

I’m surprised that the number is that low, to be honest. But, then, most Americans do not pay as much attention to politics as we do. And Democrats will generally support their candidates no matter what.

Additionally, only 40 percent believe the president can manage the federal government effectively, down 12 points since June. The poll also shows that 53 percent do not view Obama as a strong and decisive leader.

Again, I’m surprised more do not believe that he’s essentially incompetent. Still, people are finally start to clue in that speeches are no substitute for capability.

However, six in 10 Americans still believe the president has a vision for the country’s future and seven in 10 of those surveyed say he is likable.

I think he has a vision for the American: it’s just not one that is good for America. Switching over to the CNN link above

Obama’s woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues. Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.

Interesting. Most Americans disagree with Obama on the important issues. It would be interesting to know what those issues are. I think we can ascertain that one of them is Obamacare. Of course, Obama won’t actually listen to the American people, despite this tweet

That’s PBO on the Democrats invoking the nuclear option in the Senate. Will he listen to his own yammering? Doubtful.
