President Obama starts his sixth year in office with the public dissatisfied about almost everything he has done. His overall approval rating is 46-50 percent, yet only 37% trust him to make the right decisions in the last three years left to his presidency, a new Washington Post/ABC poll shows.
In terms of Foreign Policy, 49% of Americans disapprove Obama’s handling of Iran, only 39% approve. The president’s 50-42 percent rating for handling the threat of terrorism has slipped under majority approval for the first time in his presidency.
More personally, too, Americans divide on whether Obama’s a strong leader (48-51 percent) or honest and trustworthy (49-48 percent). His favorability rating is essentially even split, 49/50.
