Approval rating in the tank on a number of issues according to a Fox News Poll released this evening
Obama Approval/Disapproval by Issue
Health care- 41% Approve, 54% Disapprove
Economy- 40% Approve, 57% Disapprove
Foreign Policy- 35% Approve, 56% Disapprove
Israeli-Palestinian Conflict- Only 29% Approve, 56% Disapprove
Has the Obama administration competently and effectively managed the government? A Fox News poll released Wednesday finds a majority of American voters says no -- including about a third of Democrats.
A 58-percent majority says the White House has not been competent at managing the federal government. Some 32 percent of Democrats join 67 percent of independents and 84 percent of Republicans in holding that view.
Forty percent of voters do say the administration has been competent at running the government.
Those marks are a bit worse than those Barack Obama receives on his overall job performance as president: 42 percent of voters approve, while 52 percent disapprove. Last month 41 percent approved and 54 percent disapproved (June 21-23, 2014).
Things look better for the White House when the questions focus on some specific issues. For example, 53 percent think the administration has been very (17 percent) or somewhat (36 percent) competent at managing the economy, while 45 percent disagree
*Q21- Setting aside how you feel about the policies of the Obama administration, all in all, doyou think the administration has been competent and effective in managing the federal government, or not?
