Poll: Majority of Americans Don’t Think Obama is “Honest and Trustworthy”

Why is there just now a majority of Americans who don’t trust Obama? What took everyone so long? I guess since he’s a lame duck, Democrats and even the media can come out and start hinting at what they really think of him.

CNS News noted that this was the first time a majority of Americans came to this conclusion about the President:

Fifty-one percent of the Americans who responded to a Gallup poll conducted June 5-8 said that they do not believe the phrase “is honest and trustworthy” applies to President Barack Obama.

Gallup has asked Americans this question eight times over the last six years: “Thinking about the following characteristics and qualities, please say whether you think each applies or doesn’t apply to Barack Obama. How about: Is honest and trustworthy.”

The latest poll, conducted June 5-8, was the first time that a majority said the description “is honest and trustworthy” does not apply to Obama.

The poll surveyed 1,027 adults and had a margin of error of +/- 4 points, which means that as many as 55 percent or as few as 47 percent may believe the description “is honest and trustworthy”  does not apply to Barack Obama.

Further, The Hill noted Obama’s unfavorability rating is as low as W’s:

A new survey suggests President Obama is just as unpopular as former President George W. Bush. Just over half of those polled, 51 percent, have an unfavorable view of Obama, and 51 percent currently feel the same about Bush, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday. Forty-seven percent of the public has a favorable rating of Obama, which CNN said is a new low for him, and roughly identical to Bush’s favorable rating of 46 percent.

Obama of course still has time to further screw things up and send his favorability rating even further down. Obama’s on his way out, and the media establishment is going to be focused on propping Hillary up. I know it’s hard to imagine, but she’ll be even more untrustworthy and dishonest than Obama.
