President Barack Obama’s personal standing with the American people is about as bad as it’s ever been, according to the latest CNN/ORC International poll released Monday.
Fifty-three percent said they do not believe Obama is honest and trustworthy, the first time in CNN’s poll that a clear majority has voiced that sentiment, and a mere four in 10 of all Americans believe he can effectively manage the federal government.
Fifty-six percent said that Obama is not a person they personally admire, another 56 percent said he does not inspire confidence and 53 percent said he is not a strong and decisive leader. Those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN’s polling.
The historically bad polling numbers have piled up for Obama ever since the launch of the Affordable Care Act last month.
