    At least we can all agree on one thing…………………………………
    “A plurality of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, a new poll says.
    According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 33 percent of voters think the current president is the worst since 1945”.

    Yes, kind of sad, is it not? As I stated on another thread, it is not always the opinions of the ultra conservatives such as ConserveGov that I disagree with, it is the tone of there posts that is so very offensive!!

    “Your link leads to a right wing propaganda site, that asked its readers who they thought the worst president was. Their answer is as scientifically worthless as your comment.”

    I agree that ConservGov’s choice of source is not credible, but this time the information seems to be correct. I don’t know why he didn’t go to

    http://www.quinnipiac.edu/images/polling/us/us07022014_U73jabn.pdf

    and verify politico’s assertion. Source documents are always better than political site distortions.

    Gov, polls are responses to questions. Alter the questions and, voila, you alter the polls.
    -
    The stock market has doubled since Barry’s been in office and two new Trillion Dollar wars have NOT been initiated.
    -
    How’s the President doing?

    A plurality of voters think even less of the lousy do nothing Congress that we have been enduring. The Republican House has accomplished nearly nothing and spent the least amount of time actually showing up at their jobs in Washington. They spend all of their time trying to revoke the ACA, endless investigations that go no where, and an endless stream of vilification aimed at the President. It is absolutely disgusting that the people who are supposed to be leading our country behave like children throwing a tantrum.

    @ConserveGov

    That’s roughly the same percent who still favored G W Bush when he left office, so it’s not a surprise to me. Some people just can’t see past political affiliation.

    Anybody notice what appears to be gay Dems and Repubs (since no gender is shown, it’s usually assumed that the characters are male).
    I know many gay Republicans, and I know they usually come from religious or economic ideology, but how can you pledge allegiance to a party that has such a large and long history of hatred and misinformation to one and one’s lifestyle?
    Anyway, HAPPY 4TH! TO EVERYONE!

    My esteemed opponent says “Ooh!” when anyone with half a brain can see that the correct response was “Ahh!”

    The Yahoo poll is useless. If you break it down by party, Obama’s votes (from Republicans) are quite high, while the Democrats are split between Nixon and George W., who by any measure were terrible presidents (and, in fact, add their votes together and it’s higher than Obama’s). As a matter of actual measurements of how the country is doing, Obama beats any Republican since WWII; but Republicans would not be interested in data.

    Here is another line from time saying the same thing, is time a right wing propaganda site to.If you are going to go to name calling on a site that is reporting on a second party then at least try to find a link to prove your point.

    A plurality of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, a new poll says.
    .
    You do understand that a “plurality” is not the same as a “majority” – don’t you? (Definition: a number of votes cast for a candidate in a contest of more than two candidates that is greater than the number cast for any other candidate but not more than half the total votes cast.)
    A plurality of 33 percent is insignificant if there are numerous “candidates” in the poll. Additionally, how is it that the term “voters” is applied as a representation of everyone? As was pointed out earlier, the respondents were not necessarily objective voters, but culled from a select group whose objectivity might be called into question.
    Additionally, I note that “President George W. Bush, came in at second-worst with 28 percent [missing the lead by 5 percent], and Richard Nixon was in third place with 13 percent of the vote….” Isn’t that interesting?
    I also note from the detailed report [http://www.quinnipiac.edu/news-and-events/quinnipiac-university-poll/national/release-detail?ReleaseID=2056 ] the following: “Obama has been a better president than George W. Bush, 39 percent of voters say….”
    Gee, do you think your post might have shown a bit more selectivity?

    "No Bush only 28% think bush is the worst. "

    That doesn’t contradict what I stated. Roughly 33% of those surveyed indicated Obama was the worst President since WWII. When Bush left office, roughly 33% still gave him a favorable rating. I think it’s fairly safe to assume that anyone who would still give Bush a favorable rating after his presidency would also believe Obama is the worst since WWII. As I said, some people just can’t see beyond partisanship.

    The last time I was in the US was in a July. On the 4th we sat with our American friends and hosts on a beach on Lake Michigan. Until the rain started. Then we watched it sitting on a pavement (sidewalk?) with a small crowd, under the eaves of a few shore front shops.
