In a Quinnipiac University National Poll, a plurality of voters say President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II.
33 percent of voters think the current president is the worst since 1945. According to 39 percent of voters, Obama has been a better president than George W. Bush. But %40 percent say he is worse. Voters say by a narrow 37 - 34 percent that Obama is better for the economy than Bush. Over the span of almost 7 decades and the current President finds himself at the bottom of the popularity barrel along with his predecessor. Five percent of voters said Dwight D. Eisenhower was the best president since 1945, while 4 percent said Harry Truman. However, some can't help but wonder how much pollsters really remember of how Harry Truman ran the country back in 1945. The independent survey was conducted June 24-30 with 1,446 registered voters on land lines and cellphones.
