So, What Have We Here?: Rating Obama and His Administrations (Part 2)
Owing to the incredible response to yesterday’s program, we continue the conversation to accommodate those with profound thoughts to share.
Almost a year into his second term, President Barack Obama’s tenure can hardly be described as smooth sailing – the current crisis in Washington a case in point. The “liberal” Democrat was at a 69-percent approval rating after his first year in office (Gallup poll, Jan. 22, 2009), but times have changed. Recent polls are indicating a huge loss of love for the nation’s leader.
What accounts for this?
Leid Stories conducts its own “poll” of listeners’ perceptions and analyses of Obama and his two administrations. Among other things, they will be asked whether their view of him in his second term has changed, and if so, in what way(s); what they consider his greatest achievement and his greatest failure to date; and, on a scale of 1 to 10, how they would rate his performance in office.
