    Americans split on Obama first year: polls

    Jan 13 08:21 AM US/Eastern

    A new sheaf of opinion polls show Americans sharply divided on President Barack Obama's first year in office, as his ratings on key issues like health care and the economy hit new lows.
    Polling also suggests independent voters are turning away from Obama as he nears the anniversary of his January 20 inauguration -- though in a sign of hope for his administration, he remains more popular than his policies.
    In a new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, US voters were split 45-45 on whether Obama's first year was a success or failure.
    When voters were asked in a CNN/Opinion Research survey published on Tuesday to rate Obama's performance since taking office, 48 percent judged it a failure, and 47 percent saw a success.
    Obama's first year, after he accepted a challenging legacy from ex-president George W. Bush, has seen him battle the worst economic crisis in 70 years, juggle two wars and contend with a botched Al-Qaeda terror attack on a US airliner on Christmas Day.
    A CBS News poll showed Obama's job approval rating at 46 percent, marking the first time he had polled below 50 percent in the survey.
    I think Obama's first year has zero resemblance to what he and the left expected. I think they expected Camelot II and that everything would sail through Congress like a dragster on steroids.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    48% of Americans disagreeing with you in the worst economic crisis in 70 years isn't bad. But hey. I'm sure you were saying the same thing a few years about with 2 failed wars, a mediocre economy and 25% approval ratings.

    Actually I've seen the MSM say it isn't worse than what Reagan faced in 1981. We don't have two failed wars, that's bull****.

    Didn't have a mediocre economy either, until after 2006..... wonder what happened then that was different?
