New Poll Is A Disaster For Obama

President Barack Obama has seen support for his foreign policy plummet to an all-time low, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll released Wednesday.

According to the poll, just 37% of respondents said they approved of Obama's handling of foreign-policy issues, an all-time low. Meanwhile, 57% said they disapproved, an all-time high.

And the foreign-policy approval rating for Obama might be artificially high. The poll was conducted before the crisis in Iraq — a situation for which Obama has been roundly criticized — bubbled up and grabbed international attention.

Obama's handling of international events have earned him criticism over the past few months — from the crisis in Ukraine to his administration's decision to execute a prisoner swap to free U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five Taliban-affiliated prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay military prison.

According to the poll, 44% of respondents said the administration should not have made the exchange, compared with 30% who supported it.

Some other highlights from the poll:

Obama's overall approval rating sits at just 41%, tying an all-time low.
His approval rating on handling the economy also sits at 41%, down 1 percentage point from last month. It's the same number from March.
Obama's favorability rating is underwater — 41% said they view him positively, while 45% see him in a negative light.
When asked their predictions on the rest of Obama's term in office, 54% said they thought he "cannot lead and get the job done," compared with only 42% who said the opposite.
Over the last 12 months, 41% of respondents said their views of the Obama administration have "gotten worse." Only 15% said they have "gotten better."

Obama's declining popularity threatens to drag down Democrats in the 2014 midterm elections. By a 10-point margin, more people said their vote this November will be to "send a signal of opposition to Obama."
(41% said their vote will not be a signal to Obama either way.) On the generic congressional ballot, 35% said they would vote for a Democratic candidate in their district, compared with 30% who chose a theoretical Republican candidate.

this is the way of democracy.

trash the guy, demand some change.. get a new person in for the next round with the exact same policies.

this is far more stable in terms of maintaining power than having 1 party rule.

42% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
I believe that number is closer to 55% now. Inflation you understand.

this is great.

it also blames the PEOPLE for anything that goes wrong. YOU VOTED FOR HIM, YOU'RE FAULT. VOTE FOR THE OTHER GUY NEXT TIME.

people have to see this for the fraud that it is.

I believe DEMOCRACY can work esp. in smaller racially homogenous nations, but it is definitely not the ultimate form of government.
