  • Fifty-four percent claim that the Obama administration is incompetent at running the government.
  • Forty-eight percent stated that Obama does not pay enough attention to what his administration is doing.
  • Thirty-five percent of voters ranked Ronald Reagan as the best president since WWII.
  • Americans say that President Obama is the worst president since World War II according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

    Obama received 33 percent of the votes for the worst president, beating out his predecessor, George W. Bush, by five percent.

    "Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes."   

    "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.

    Fifty-four percent claim that the Obama administration is incompetent at running the government, with 48 percent stating that he does not pay enough attention to what his administration is doing.

    According to the poll, the most important issues facing the country today are the economy and jobs, with 35 percent of the votes. Yet Obama has a 55 percent disapproval rate on his handling of the economic situation, with 77 percent saying that the economy is either ‘not so good’ or ‘poor’.

    The poll shows that a plurality, 45 percent, believe the country would be better off if Romney had won the 2012 election.

    "Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes,” Malloy states.

    The Quinnipiac poll states that Ronald Reagan is the best president since WWII with 35 percent of the vote.

    Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,446 registered voters with a +/- 2.6 percentage points margin of error.
