The White House shouldn’t be pleased with the results of the latest CNN/ORC poll. The survey shows that, as a result of the problematic implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the majority no longer believes in President Barack Obama’s competency or trustworthiness.
According to the latest CNN/ORC poll, only 46% of participants view Obama as a “strong and decisive leader” – a record low. This result is even lower than the 48% mark Obama reached in September, 2011 in the wake of America’s credit rating downgrade. 53% told CNN/ORC pollsters they don’t see Obama as a decisive leader.
Similarly, a record number of people now say they don’t believe Obama “inspires confidence.” Just 44% told CNN/ORC pollsters they are inspired by the president while 56 said they don’t find the president inspiring. In September, 2013, 49% said they were inspired by Obama while only 50% said they weren’t inspired.
For the first time ever, a majority told CNN/ORC pollsters that they don’t think Obama is trustworthy. 46% thought Obama to be trustworthy and honest while 53% did not.
By a 20 point margin, the people no long feel Obama “can manage the government effectively.” 60% told pollsters they don’t believe Obama is a competent leader while only 40% stated they did. In June, 47% felt Obama was an effective leader of the government while 53% didn’t share this opinion.
