    Q: How much confidence do you have in Obama to make the right decisions..(shortened)

    How much confidence do you have in Obama to make the right decisions for the country's future - a great deal of confidence, a good amount, just some or none at all? - The Washington Post

    On the eve of President Obama’s State of the Union Address, a new poll fromWashington Post-ABC News shows that fully 63 percent of Americans have either little no confidence Obama will make the right decisions. The public is evenly split on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy, with 49 percent of Americans answering in the affirmative, and 48 percent answering negatively.

    A bare majority of Americans, 52 percent, feel Obama does not understand the problems of people like them – a shocking downward turn for Obama on an important likeability issue on which he dominated in 2012. A majority of Americans. 51 percent, also believe Obama is not a strong leader. His disapproval rating stands currently at 50 percent, with 41 percentdisapproving stronglyonly 23 percent support him strongly. 50 percent of Americans have an unfavorable impression of the president.

    I don't trust the president to make decisions for me, didn't trust any of the past ones to do so either. We're supposed to have an executive branch with limited power. We're supposed to have a government with limited power. We're supposed to abide by the tenth amendment, and why? Because no one person can be trusted with great power. Power corrupts.

    As an aside, I trust the Congress even less.

    Split on whether he is honest and trustworthy? Did they change the meanings of those words too?

    Apologies.. It is in the article, not in the thread:
    "The country is almost evenly divided over whether he [President Obama] is honest and trustworthy"
    I can't believe anyone that listens to what he says on a semi-regular basis finds him honest.. unless they changed the meaning of that word as well.
