Although some would have you believe that Obama has been the worst president in the history of America, a new poll shows otherwise.
The CNN/ORC poll has found that after two years, 50% of Americans approve Obama’s handling of the presidency and our country. According to CNN, the increase is thanks to the president’s “treatment of race relations and the economy.”
“The new poll follows a week in which two Supreme Court cases boosted the president’s legacy by upholding the government subsidies at the heart of Obama’s health care law, the Affordable Care Act, and affirming same-sex couples’ right to marry. All this while Obama took several opportunities to directly address the nation’s racial tensions, closing out the week by singing ‘Amazing Grace’ on national television.”
So, the “evil Muslim Kenyan” sang “Amazing Grace” on live TV? People approved? I’ll be damned. How does that make your teabagger fee-fees feel?
A survey in May previously showed Obama’s approval rating to be 45% and 52% disapproved. His approval rating has not seen 50% or higher since May 2013.
The approval rating for handling the economy has also jumped up with 52% approving and 46% disapproving. Also, a majority approve of his handling of race relations. The poll showed 55% approve, up from 50%.
