Poll: Obama Worst President In 70 Years, Voters Say Romney Would Have Been Better

The latest poll from Quinnipiac places Obama firmly at the top of the Worst. President. Ever list… since World War II.  That takes talent.

Somewhere Jimmy Carter is breathing a sigh of relief.

A plurality of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, a new poll says.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 33 percent of voters think the current president is the worst since 1945.

Obama’s predecessor, former President George W. Bush, came in at second-worst with 28 percent, and Richard Nixon was in third place with 13 percent of the vote. After Jimmy Carter, who 8 percent of voters said was the worst president in the time period, no other president received more than 3 percent.

Forty-five percent of voters said the U.S. would be better off with Mitt Romney serving in the White House, compared to 38 percent who said the country would be in worse shape.

The survey comes as Obama in recent weeks has found his popularity at the lowest levels of his presidency.

The Quinnipiac poll reported more bad news about the president’s approval and competency ratings. Forty percent of voters approve of the job Obama is doing, compared with 53 percent who disapprove. Fifty-four percent of voters say the Obama administration is not competent at running the government.

Best start to the 4th of July Holiday Weekend. Ever!  Especially since liberals are in full spin mode.  Behold the nutjobbery that is Eric Boehlert:

GOP haters are hating on Obama because SOCIALISM!!!1!, or something. Obviously.   It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with his Foreign Policy full of fail, abysmal jobs record, GDP contracting, soaring debt, Obamacare debacle, illegal immigrant toddlers crawling across the “totally secure” border, etc. etc. etc.

He also retweeted this extremely #SmartTake on the poll:
