|Quinnipiac University Poll: Who Was the Worst Potus Since WWII|
Who says Obama is coming out at the bottom of every poll. In a Quinnipiac University National Poll released Wednesday, Barack Obama was rated the worst president since World War II, (33 %), "Dubya" Bush was number two, followed by Nixon and Carter. As expected "Dubya" was the worst for the Democrats, but Obama was worst for the GOP and more importantly for the Independents (36% to Dubya's 23%)
Ronald Reagan was voted the best president since WWII, followed by Bill Clinton, and JFK. Obama was voted #4 based on Democrats' vote (he got only 2% of independents and 4% of Republicans). Note the 2% who voted for Carter may need institutionalization).

A plurality of Americans say the country would have been better off if Republican Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election, 45% vs 38% who say no. Independent voters are on the Romney side by a 47 - 33%.
President Obama's job approval rating remains a negative by a 40 - 53% margin. Also significant is that 35% say that jobs and the economy are America's most significant issue while immigration is near the bottom at 4%.
Put it all together and this poll cannot be good news for the Democrats in the 2014 midterms. Not only do Americans believe their standard bearer, Barack Obama is not doing a good job but they rate him the worst out of the past 12 Presidents. Not only that but they feel the man they rejected in 2012 Mitt Romney, would have done better than a second Obama term.
