New CNN Poll Says Majority of Americans Do Not Trust Pres. Obama #cmm457

According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 60% of Americans do not believe that President Obama can effectively manage the country.

The poll also found that 53 percent of those polled said Obama is not honest or trustworthy, marking the first time that the CNN/ORC polling found a clear majority questioning the president’s integrity, CNN said.

The poll was conducted November 18-20 amid ongoing problems plaguing Obamacare.

HealthCare.gov, the administration’s web portal for offering private health coverage to uninsured Americans in 36 of the 50 U.S. states, has been at the center of a political firestorm over technical problems that overwhelmed its October 1 launch and have not yet been resolved.

In addition, insurance companies have canceled millions of policies because of the law, even though the president promised that people would be able to keep their policies if they were happy with their coverage.

The pollsters said the survey recorded the president’s worst scores during his five years in office.

56 percent of respondents said they do not admire Obama and he does not inspire confidence. 53 percent said they do not see him as a strong and decisive leader, according to CNN.

The latest Gallup poll, from November 11-17, put Obama’s overall job approval rating at 41 percent, down from 45 percent in September, before the launch of Healthcare.gov.
