This President is not only tearing our country apart, but forcing it's citizens to take up arms against his policies. I can see another revolution on the horizon. 2yr ago from a Republican in Mariposa, CA.
Second worst President of all time behind dictator FDR and just barely ahead of LBJ and Jimmy Carter tied for third. 2yr ago from a Libertarian in Pittsburgh, PA.
Yes, I approve of Obama's agenda and his hopes and plans for our country. If not for the GOP manipulations and simple obstructionism GREAT things could have been accomplished. I totally blame the Tea-Party Republicans for the mess we are in. They seem to hate Obama needlessly even more than they love the country the purport to love. Obama had the right ideas and plans; the GOP kept much of it from fruition. 2yr ago from a Democrat in Potwin, KS.
Approve, but he isn't getting enough help from House Republicans. 2yr ago from a Democrat in Salem, OR.
Worst President in history. 2yr ago from a Republican in Willingboro, NJ.
President Obama can and should be impeached for not defending the Constitution and several other anti-American actions. 2yr ago from a Republican in Santa Clara, CA.
President Obama is an ideological left wing zealot. He is not a traditional American and he does not love this country. He believes we have a flawed foundation due to the owning of slaves by a very small percentage of the population. Obama said he wanted to "fundamentally transform America." What does he want to transform us into? A left wing, central government serving, European styled weak nation! He is a complete disaster and worse than Jimmy Carter ever was. 2yr ago from a Republican in Stafford, VA.
He is the most incompetent, arrogant, and hypocritical President of the United States EVER elected, and I believe the mainstream media's Bias in his favor has misled the American public into ignorance about his true nature and intentions. The news media has failed in their role to inform the American public of their elected officials' actions just as they have failed to hold these "Leaders" accountable for their actions. 2yr ago from a Republican in Silver Spring, MD.
Is there something below dissaprove? He is a true ideologue. A Progressive in the Woodrow Wilson mold who has a fundamental, Hegelian disdain for the Enlightenment ideal of "natural rights" that this nation was founded on. 2yr ago from a Republican in Rye, NY.
"Disapprove" didn't seem like a strong enough word. He makes changes and polices that are not within his authority to do. Modifies laws without congressional approval. CHOOSES who has to obey the law (sorry, gives out "waivers"). If I couldn't pay for my house, I would LOSE it. BANKS can't pay their bills and get $700 billion dollars, and virtually NO RECOURSE so that it can happen again. Canada spends LESS per capita than the U.S. We have %40 uninsured. They have %5 uninsured. Their government negotiates prescription costs based on HOW WELL IT WORKS. We pay what they tell us to. 2yr ago from a Libertarian in Edmond, OK.
He is deliberately trying to destroy American excellence. 2yr ago from a Republican in Alda, NE.
Has failed to demonstrate that he is capable of leading. 2yr ago from a Republican in Drake, KY.
He has mislead the American public on several different issues. From domestic to foreign. He claimed he would be transparent and has been anything but that. I really think he has been in overhead since the beginning. The partisan politics is his own doing. Clinton ended up being a decent President because he worked with Congress. He has openly criticized Congress for their efforts while he tells us he won't negotiate. I really think he should step down. 1yr ago from a Republican in Altoona, IA.
I approve of the job President Obama is doing. However, I believe that he and the country would be more successful if he had a supportive congress and if the GOP was able to control the Tea Party. 2yr ago from a Democrat in Southlake, TX.
Disapprove, he does not have the traditional welfare of the United States of America at heart. 1yr ago from a Republican in Northampton, MA.
Disappointed. 2yr ago from a Democrat in Libertytown, MD.
I approve but the house needs to work with Obama instead of fighting every change that could help the American people. 2yr ago from a Democrat in Big Bear Lake, CA.
I like President Obama as a person and I really liked his "Yes We Can" slogan and the dream he had of making a difference in America, but I now feel it was either a very well acted cover or that he has since caved to quite a few corporate interests. Gitmo is still open. He signed a stronger version of the NDAA into law, giving the President the right to designate and hold anyone as a terrorist. He is seeking to prosecuted Edward Snowden instead of rewarding him and the President is conducting closed door meetings on the TPP. President Obama has also failed to enact labeling of GMO's and he allows the corporate/government revolving door policies which allow for corruption and conflict of interest to continue. 2yr ago from a Green in Mesa, AZ.
Generally approve, but am very disappointed in his support of the expansion of executive powers started by Bush. 2yr ago from a Green in Longmont, CO.
He cannot win not matter what happens. President Regan was not a good president. He was a figure head and people adore him. President Bush, the second one really had no power. When will people realize it is not the president making the decisions but he money behind them. The first Bush was more in line with his money bakers. R. 2yr ago from a Republican in Morrison, CO.
This person that sits in the Oval Office is nothing more than a goof. He has been given power that he does not deserve. He has made decision that has gotten people killed and he could care less. I do not believe that he was born in this country and that he truly believes that he is the Dictator of the United States (DOTUS). 1yr ago from a Republican in Saint Robert, MO.
Worst possible socialist ideology implemented now after the first 80 years , collapsing economically and morally, a once moral and wealthy country that is becoming more hated and propagandized from with in and from out side as well. Becoming hated. Not the old America as much as the new. 1yr ago from a Republican in Howell, MI.
Disapprove. He is not legally a US citizen. He is a dictator who illegally makes laws with his pen, ignores any law he does not like, is destroying our constitution as well as our military which he is obviously afraid will turn on him, with good reason. 1yr ago from a Republican in Springfield, OH.
He's doing what he thinks is right, however often I differ on what is right. 2yr ago from a Republican in Oviedo, FL.
I do not agree with his fundamental approach to the Presidency but, given the near complete financial meltdown at the beginning of his first term, he has not done badly. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Tallahassee, FL.
When a president is elected, it is my job to support him or her whether I elected him or not. A president make decisions based on information that I can never know about. It is not our place to judge with partial facts, however. It is a presidents job to uphold the constitution that he swore to uphold not flex his presidential powers to bypass Congress. Checks and balances are there for a reason. 1yr ago from a Republican in Cleveland, OH.
The President is mostly just a figure head and we can blame congress for what does or doesn't happen for the most part. It doesn't matter which part is in charge all they're interested in is pushing their own agenda instead of working together. 1yr ago from a Republican in Billings, MT.
I don't approve of the overall job anyone in Washington is doing. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Corrales, NM.
Disappointed by some things I have seen. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Winooski, VT.
His intentions are good, but he is trying to hard to get certain agendas passed that are not good for the country as a whole. He is also circumventing Congress, which is currently a do nothing institution, but there is a reason that each is supposed to be equal. He needs to find ways of not alienating the opposition and to bring more people into a working relationship. 1yr ago from a Republican in Arlington, VA.
He doesn't have bad motives but is completely clueless how to actually achieve them the right way. He has expanded the power of the federal government far beyond what it should have over you, this is not freedom. He has divided the country so much over the past few years. 1yr ago from a Libertarian in West Point, NY.
Strongly disagree with President Obama job and firmly believe he is totally incompetent which does not fall under rules for impeachment. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX.
I approve, however i believe that more research should be conducted regarding the status of average families throughout the U.S. and then allow for more customized planning rather than a national requirement. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Las Vegas, NV.
This is too simplistic a question and lacks nuance. I support some of the things the president has done or is doing, but not others. Overall his is slightly above fifty percent for me on the Approve/Disapprove scale for me. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Potwin, KS.
I am neither dissatisfied nor satisfied in his job. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Wichita Falls, TX.
Disapprove, I had a completely different impression when he was elected in 2008. I was hoping things would change. No different with the wars then the last president that was in. He is just another "Come and Go" president with no actual change. If he would work at actually tackling the issues that are the most crucial and take a vote from town hall meetings across the county, that would improve the job he is doing. 1yr ago from a Libertarian in Pittsburgh, PA.
He is doing a good job but everyone is beating him down because they blame the current one in office. But as his overall job, He is doing what he can. Maybe not 100% but he is trying. 1yr ago from a Republican in Clarksville, TN.
President Obama is doing the best he can but does not the experience for the job. As my state senator he voted "present" on 100 bills. That indicates to me he was not well versed in what was needed in our state or he was leaving no voting record to educate the population in what he believed in. 1yr ago from a Republican in Lansing, IL.
Approve of some stances like expanding Medicaid. He should set a path toward a single-payer system. He should move to cut subsidies to oil companies and dramatically expand deployment of renewable energy, energy efficiency, mass transit and electric vehicles. He should end the drone wars as they are creating new enemies. He should curb NSA abuses and close Guantanomo bay. He should move to end the debt ceiling and put an end to these fiscal theatrics by the GOP. 1yr ago from a Green in Houston, TX.
Disapprove. While he is not solely responsible for the ridiculously hot mess the last 6 years have been, the nonchalant way in which he oversteps his authority as President, signs the bills Congress passes that run rough-shod over our enumerated rights, and is at worst complicit in the erosion of our rights by government agencies like the NSA, and at best (if you can believe him), too incompetent to know what these agencies are doing. I'm ashamed to say I voted for him the first time around based on his campaign promises and him being the 'lesser of two evils.' On the upside, I learned my lesson, and am done with the 2 party system for good. 1yr ago from a Libertarian in Sanford, NC.
On most things his actions and presence have been unimportant. He has made a number of important decisions on issues which I disagree with strongly. He has also made a number of important decisions on which I think he did a fine job. I think he's no worse than an average president, better than some, and while I would prefer other people in office, I don't think he's been a terrible president. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Garden City, ID.
I disapprove. Obama has succeeded in being a lame duck president, and I have not seen an improvement in the quality of life for middle class citizens who are the backbone of this country. The promise of change has not come to fruition. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Greendale, WI.
I think he is a third and fourth term of the Bush presidency and that he has done nothing about racial discrimination, poverty, and homelessness. He has been a friend to banks and his immigration stance isn't based in US history, which shows that Blacks historically have suffered from mass immigration both legal and illegal. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Thomson, GA.
I agree with his goals but am disappointed in his results. I voted for him in part because he was supposed to be a "consensus" leader -- yet he has not achieved consensus with the Congress or the American public. I don't know whether his lack of success is due to primarily to poor advisers, racially motivated campaigns to defeat his goals, or his own weaknesses. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Georgetown, TX.
Disapprove, he is too conservative and does not do enough to push for the change that many of his voters, especially younger people sent him to Washington to provide. 1yr ago from a Green in Lake Mary, FL.
Approve of Health Care, Climate Change actions, support for gay marriage. DISAPPROVE of killing people with drones, spying (NSA bullshit), supporting militarization of police forces, protecting Wall Street thugs. 1yr ago from a Green in Jamestown, CO.
No one is perfect. Every president has views and makes decision that not everyone agrees with. In this case I do not agree with everything and feel focus of the entire government is in the wrong place. 1yr ago from a Republican in University Park, PA.
Highly disapprove of his leadership of the military. He has turned the armed forces into a social experiment lead by the politically correct. Otherwise, I think that he has tried very hard. His standing, however, will be decided in time. 1yr ago from a Republican in San Juan, TX.
I think no President is perfect. I dont fully agree with his politics but he is doing what he said he would. I dont disapprove, I disagree. 1yr ago from a Republican in Dallas, TX.
Approve on some issues, disapprove on others. 1yr ago from a Democrat in Minneapolis, MN.
