MSNBC poll of 1.8 million: Obama earns 'F'
In less than three months in office, president gets failing grade
By Chelsea Schilling
With more than 1.8 million responses to a MSNBC poll, President Obama has earned a grade of "F" for his performance in office.
He received a failing mark in an MSNBC unscientific online survey after having spent less than three months in the White House.
In its "Give President Obama a Grade" survey, MSNBC asked nearly 2 million respondents, "If you were grading Barack Obama on his performance as president, what would he get?"
The largest number of respondents – or 43 percent – gave Obama an "F," and 14 percent said he has earned a "D."
What exactly has Obama done during his first 100 days? Well, he’s continued the highly unpopular policy of bailing out big Wall Street corporations, pumping more billions of our tax dollars into AIG. Obama also introduced a $787 billion dollar “stimulus plan” which has apparently done nothing to help little people and will almost certainly disappear into Democrat pork barrel projects and the pockets of major campaign donors.
More and more Americans are using up their last unemployment checks. Many are defaulting on their mortgages and joining the growing crowds living in tent cities all over America. In the first three months of 2009, an additional 800,000 Americans defaulted on their mortgages –despite banks bending over backwards not to foreclose on people. Over six hundred thousand Americans have been losing their jobs every month so far in 2009 with about 2.5 million Americans added to the unemployment roles so far this year.
When the poll numbers began heading South, MSNBC yanked the poll. Next time, they should poll Wall Street fat cats, defense contractors and Pentagon generals.
