With more than 1.8 million responses to a MSNBC poll, President Obama has earned a grade of “F” for his performance in office.
He received a failing mark in an MSNBC unscientific online survey after having spent less than three months in the White House.
In its “Give President Obama a Grade” survey, MSNBC asked nearly 2 million respondents, “If you were grading Barack Obama on his performance as president, what would he get?”
The largest number of respondents – or 43 percent – gave Obama an “F.”
Approximately 31 percent said the president has earned an “A,” while 6.5 percent gave him a “B,” 5.3 percent answered a “C” and 14 percent said he has earned a “D.”
Meanwhile, Rasmussen Reports’ daily presidential tracking poll for April 7, 2009, shows that 37 percent of voters strongly approve of Obama’s performance. A full 29 percent now strongly disapprove of his performance.
The poll was conducted via telephone surveys of only 1,500 respondents.
Nearly 58 percent of the voters somewhat approve of the president’s performance, while 41 percent disapprove.
According to Rasmussen Reports, Michelle Obama’s favorable ratings have jumped six points to 67 percent.
