A year into his presidency, President Barack Obama faces a polarised nation and souring public assessments of his efforts to change U.S., according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Nearly half of all Americans say Obama is not delivering on his major campaign promises, and a narrow majority has just some or no confidence that he will make the right decisions for the country’s future.
More than a third see the president as falling short of their expectations, about double the proportion saying so at the 100-day mark of Obama’s presidency in April. At the time, 63 per cent said Obama had accomplished a “great deal”. Now, the percentage saying so has dropped to 47 per cent.
