Quinnipiac Poll: People Trust Republicans in Congress more than Obama
http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-centers/polling-institute/national/release-detail?ReleaseID=1975

The poll shows only 39% approve of the job Obama is doing verses 54% who disapprove, Obama loses independents and all age groups, even people ages 18 to 29 by 36% approve, 54% disapprove. It would appear that even young people are waking up.


2. Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?

What is amazing is that after four years of being called racists, anarchists and extremists by the president, his party and the press, more people trust the Republicans in Congress on all key issues than they do Barack Obama.
