Faith In Obama’s Economic Leadership Hits All-Time Low
Faith in President Obama’s ability to handle the economy is at an all-time low, according to a new CNBC poll.
Last year 33 percent of Americans said in a CNBC poll they are “extremely or quite confident” in the president’s economic policies, but this year that number fell 9 points to 24 percent in a new poll — the lowest of Obama’s presidency.
Unemployment has hit a new low of 5.9 percent and 248,000 jobs were created in September. The president recently boasted the country is better off than it was when he took office by “every economic measure.” And those polled who rated the economy as “good or excellent” rose 3 points this year, CNBC reports.
