Majority of Americans Losing Faith in Obama

July 13, 2010

About 60 percent of American voters say they are losing both faith and confidence in President Obama, according to a public opinion poll published Tuesday.

The results of the Washington Post/ABC News poll are a 180-degree turn from the start of Obama’s presidency 18 months ago, with nearly 60 percent of those polled saying they lack faith in the commander-in-chief. In January of 2009, 60 percent said they were confident in his decision-making.

When asked how much confidence they have in Obama to make the right decisions for the country’s future, 58 percent of respondents said “just some” or “none,” according to the poll.

While these numbers are a new low for Obama, 68 percent expressed the same view about Democrats in Congress and 72 percent said the same of Republicans, Reuters reported.

Trouble in the housing industry, slow job growth and other economic woes may be to blame for Obama’s plummeting approval rating, the Post speculated.
