Based on a new poll for The Hill newspaper, a sizable majority of possible voters, 56 percent says, President Obama has transformed the country in a downbeat way during his first term. What’s more, two-thirds of probable voters said the president has kept his 2008 campaign promises, but the country has still changed for the worst.
This indicates then that there is a widespread dissatisfaction with country’s direction. Meanwhile, the poll found 35 percent of respondents believe the country had changed for the better under the president’s leadership.
The poll shows fifty percent of respondents believe GOP presidential candidatewill bring a “significant “ level of change. The outcomes might show how much those opposed to the president’s policies want change, the paper said.
The poll also found 68 percent of likely voters despite of whether they approve or disapprove of Obama believe the president has considerably transformed the country since his 2009 inauguration.
At 91 percent, the feeling that Obama has changed the country for the worse is strongest among Republicans, in contrast to 71 percent of Democrats who support Obama’s brand of change.
The poll was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research after the Supreme Court ruling last month that essentially upheld the president’s health care reform law.
