    WASHINGTON: Barack Obama is the worst US President since World War II, 33 per cent of Americans have said in a new poll released on Wednesday which gave negative grades for him for his handling of key issues like the economy, foreign policy, terrorism, heatlhcare and environment.

    America would be better off if Republican Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election, 45 per cent of voters say, while 38 per cent say the country would be worse off, according to the Quinnipiac University National Poll.

    American voters say 54 - 44 per cent that the Obama Administration is not competent running the government.

    The president is paying attention to what his administration is doing, 47 per cent say, while 48 per cent say he does not pay enough attention, according to the poll.

    52-year-old Obama, now in his second term, is the worst president since World War II, 33 per cent of American voters say while another 28 per cent pick his predecessor in the White House, President George W Bush.



    Ronald Reagan is the best president since WW II, 35 per cent of voters say, with 18 per cent for Bill Clinton, 15 per cent for John F Kennedy and 8 per cent for Obama, the independent Quinnipiac University poll finds.

    Among Democrats, 34 per cent say Clinton is the best president, with 18 per cent each for Obama and Kennedy.

    Obama has been a better president than George W Bush, 39 per cent of voters say, while 40 per cent say he is worse. Men say 43 - 36 per cent that Obama is worse than Bush while women say 42 - 38 per cent he is better.



    Obama is worse, Republicans say 79 - 7 per cent and independent voters say 41 - 31 per cent. Democrats say 78 - 4 per cent that he is better.

    Voters say by a narrow 37 - 34 per cent that Obama is better for the economy than Bush.

    Missing Mitt are Republicans 84 - 5 per cent and independent voters 47 - 33 per cent, while Democrats say 74 - 10 per cent that the US would be worse off with Romney.

    "Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

    "Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes," the Quinnipiac press release says.

    A series of political controversies, economic woes and foreign policy crises have hit Obama's reputation.

    This man is a pretty useless American, let alone being a President.

    US is looking these days as a loser in all respect,

    If we can survive Obama, and the forces who groomed him and placed him in the presidency, we can survive anything.

    to do justice to Obama he is only unlucky. all those problems have been accumulating throughout his predecessors - subprime crisis, health care, Bin Laden, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran. he's confronted with these challenges altogether. and to make things harder, players he faces in the international arena are tougher. had it still been Yeltsin in reign Obama could have done a Yugoslavia out of Syria or Ukraine but it's Putin who's gained momentum thanks to hiked energy prices.

    even if Bush Jr. or Clinton were in Obama's shoes what can they do?

    take Iraq ISIS case for example - they would be perceived as weak like oBama if no substantial actions r being taken, allowing Iraq to tilt to Iran. on the other hand how many Americans support boots on ground back in Iraq? a catch 22 isnt it?

    maybe he is being too cautious not to repeat the same mistakes committed by his predecessors and trying keeping his hands clean every time......anyway he won't be the worst

    What a president could do under current situation? He has less magic and option up his sleeves, stronger competitor like China and India, uncooperative allies such as Japan and anti-war sentiment at home. I consider him OK and no other president could do much better than he does.

    I thought this was a known fact, who needs a poll to state something obvious?

    Why its necessary for some like US homeland security advisor Mohamed Elibiary to tweet that America is Islimac country

    Does it implies american muslims in some way fight with american value system and to prevent this conflict he has to tweet that america is islamic country.

    Second he is head of country which is secular in constitution.doesnt his this tweet conflict with secular nature of american constitution

    what is guarantee that he won`t be biased towards people beloging to other religion.

    last but not least how can seach person lead such an important position wasnt any pre search was done

    on topic its all about financial condition of america .id america had been in good financial condition they would have surely launched militrary strike in libya siria
