Majority of Americans say Obama’s presidency has been a failure

SHARE Majority of Americans say Obama’s presidency has been a failure

After repeatedly getting hammered by how he’s handled multiple international crises, more than half of Americans are giving President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House an “F.”

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll hits Obama on many fronts.

The recap:

  • 52 percent say his presidency is a failure.
  • Only 38 percent approve of the job Obama is doing internationally, which is a new low. Fifty-six percent say they disapprove, and that’s the first time a majority of Americans have fallen into the disapproval category.
  • 52 percent say Obama’s been too cautious in dealing with ISIS.
  • 31 percent approve of how he’s handling immigration, while 59 percent disapprove. In spring 2013, only 41 percent disapproved.

That same poll also backs up an earlier CNN/ORC International poll concerning Americans’ views on air strikes in Iraq against ISIS. The Washington Post/ABC News poll showed 71 percent favor air strikes; the CNN/ORC poll had it at 76 percent.
