Voter's Remorse:
Now Who Would You Rather Have?

Better Off With Mitt Romney: 45 %
Worse Off With Mitt Romney: 38 %
(CBS) Pres. Obama edges out former President George W. Bush as the worst president since World War II, American voters say, according to a new Quinnipiac Poll released Wednesday.

Thirty-three percent chose Mr. Obama as the worst among the 12 presidents since Harry Truman, with 28 percent choosing George W. Bush and Richard Nixon tallying 13 percent.

In 2006, Mr. Bush led the pack with 34 percent over Richard Nixon at 17 percent and Bill Clinton at 16 percent, much higher than the scant 3 percent who currently think Clinton is the worst.

When asked who the best president is since World War II, 35 percent of American voters chose Ronald Reagan, 18 percent picked Clinton and 15 percent selected John F. Kennedy.

Only 8 percent said Mr. Obama was the best since World War II and George W. Bush barely registered on the "best" list with 1 percent.

To add insult to injury for Mr. Obama, more voters say the country would be better off if 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the election.

Forty-five percent feel America would be better off with a President Romney; 38 percent said the country would be worse off.

"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."

-- Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Mr. Obama's negative numbers echo his recent approval ratings, which have been below 50 percent for over a year. In Wednesday's Quinnipiac poll, his approval rating stands at 40 percent, mirroring a CBS News/New York Times poll released last week.

The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,446 registered voters nationwide from June 24-30 and has a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points.

Wow that article says it all. Unfortunately, he wasn't good after the first 4 years so who are the foolish voters who thought we should give him another 4 years. Certainly not me. I didn't vote for him either election! And he is going to make sure he screws up our country but good before he exits office.

George W Bush
Easily. The damage his crime spree caused will take generations to repair.

You don't have to limit yourselves to post WWII
George W Bush. Followed by James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, Warren Harding. But shrub stands alone as by far the worst President this country has ever suffered through.

He gave us the unspeakable evil that is Richard Cheney.

Worst but also fourth best
Didn't see that mentioned. For some reason. Also too 1,385,000 jobs created in 2014 as 10 million Americans gained health insurance. You won't hear those numbers on WBEN. For some reason.

Learn from Mistakes!
Hopefully, the American people will not make the same mistake again, and the country will be able to recover and rebound.

1,385,000 jobs created in 2014? Majority are part time minimum wage jobs with no benefits. 10 million Americans gained health insurance? really? let's see how many pay the first premium.
