And yes, it is the Obama economy, as they polled people on their level of satisfaction with the economy over the last four years. No more blaming Bush, Obama owns this economy.
“…a whopping 83 percent now say they are dissatisfied with the economic condition of the country, according to Gallup.”
Worse, the Obama reign has seen a drop in other significant areas as well.
Large drops in satisfaction were also seen with the public view of the size and power of the federal government. Only 29 percent were satisfied with the current state of the federal government, down from 41 percent in 2008, a decline of 12 percentage points.
Additionally, satisfaction with the moral and ethical climate of the country also dropped significantly over the last four years. Only 28 percent of Americans were satisfied, down from 39 percent in 2008, while 68 percent of Americans were dissatisfied with the moral and ethical climate of the United States.
But I thought this was the healing President? The man who could calm the rising tide of animosity in our country. The man who would become the first post-racial President, and fix the economy through a redistribution of wealth. The man who would pay to fill up our gas tank and pay our mortgage.
