It looks like the latest poll shows what conservatives have been claiming all along. That America if full of low information voters.

Really FT? Conservatives are right?

" . . . America if full of low information voters?"

No FT - Conservatives are living proof that America is full of willfully ignorant voters . . . as I've been claiming all along.

Referring to President Obama, "He's trying to do what he believes is best," said Johnson, 62.

This comment reveals a problem. Some Americans (growing smaller every day) continue to approve of Obama because "He's trying to do what he believes is best". Is that really a reason to support Obama when he is revealing himself as unqualified, unprepared, incapable, and surrounded by similar people? His vision and goals for America are radical, and not what a majority of Americans want, or wanted (look at the polling).

He is a great salesman who sold us a bill of goods, snake oil.

Hopefully voters will be wiser in November 2014 and 2016.

David - That's just wishful thinking on your part.

If the 2012 election were held all over again right now, Obama would most likely beat Romney by a greater landslide than he did then.

Sure, Obama is fallible like any human being, but he's soooooo much better than the Romney alternative.

Everyone except Right Wingers are getting very, very tired of "Conservatives" and the harm they continuously pile on this nation.

"Sure, Obama is fallible like any human being, but he's soooooo much better than the Romney alternative."

Really??
·Obama Care online launch/ dates keep getting pushed back
· Obama tells Russian Politicians "Wait until election is over...."
· Spy Gate NSA
· Our Debt under his Admin has sky-rocketed
· Indecision on Syria
·IRS Scandal
·Bengazhi Cover-up
·Economy
·Ukraine Indecision
·Veto Oil Pipeline
·Poland Missile Defense System lost

How is that soooooo better than Romney?

"Poll: Ukraine crisis hurting Obama at home"

It is not the Ukraine crisis that hurts Obama in the polls. It is for Obama's lies and his actions he is judged, and rightly so.

When Obama lies us into another war, he'll be in the same class as GWB. Not until.

Obama is like a low performing student in an advanced classroom, and can't figure out what to do.

Unbelievable that we turned away an honor roll student.

Evidence we are an under educated country. Many living in poverty, and being government fed.

@ worf

They both have advanced degrees from Harvard, lol. We turned down Mitt's vague promise of rectifying the economy due to lack of specifics and shifting positions. I'm sure it's the tactic he used when promising to turn a company around while at Bain, but instead just aggressively pushed them through bankruptcy to shave off any pension debts. Yes, we turned down a real winner there, champ. His plan of reducing recipients of food stamps would have cut .001 percent of the debt and you would still be praising his name. Meanwhile, his neocon advisers have pushed us into conflicts with Syria, Russia, and Iran.

slcdenizen,
During Romney's time in office as a governor, his guidance took the commonwealth of Mass's budget from red to black. While also leaving a rainy day fund. As of Jan 2014 Mass had the 4th highest debt per capita in the nation(maybe Romney did know what he was doing). Romney also did it without taking a salary...You can say what you want, but that was exactly what this Country needed. I normally do not comment about Romney(2012 election is over), but comments such as yours solidify my belief that a lot of people are blinded by party affiliation, only spout speculation/talking points and really do not know what they are talking about. No doubt in my mind the status of the economy would be much better. Why do I think that? Simple. Romney did it before, in government. Obama has yet to do it...

@Badger55

Laughable analysis to compare governing one of the smallest, most educated states to governing a large, complex country. It's not partisan blindness to recognize the frailties of the Republican party. Romney had to clear hurdles that no politician should be required to clear. Appealing to brainless teabaggers while maintaining the dignity of discussing complex issues with the adults of the party was a sad sight to see. Obama has been a let down in some regards, but to convince yourself that a Romney president would have made much of a difference is quite dramatic.

With all our problems, and challenges.

Is Obama's popularity the most important?

Pathetic!

Yes Uncle Rio . . . Really.

Thanks for asking.

FT and Gary O
So anyone who disagrees with you is “low informed”? that seems to be FT's common repsonse - we see it every time. That’s your best defense of BO, everyone who criticizes him is stupid? WOW, I’m impressed by your logic.

Mark B,
We can only pray BO could rise to GWB’s level – currently he’s below even Carter as the worst president ever.

slcdenizen,
Sorry you could not understand Worf’s analogy. But since you say both got their degrees from Harvard, as if that matters, let me remind you the Unibomber also has a masters from Harvard. You’re saying BO is akin to the Unibomber? Much as I disapprove of BO, I would not call him the Unibomber.

Your response to Badger further proves his point of your blind partisan allegiance
