WaPo Bombshell: Majority of Americans See Obama Presidency as a Failure

September 9, 2014

Now would be a good time to remind everyone that the Washington Post endorsed Obama for president in 2008 and 2012.

I guess they chose poorly…

A majority of Americans say Obama’s presidency is a ‘failure’

A majority of Americans and even many Democrats consider President Obama’s tenure to be a “failure,” according to a new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News.

The poll shows Americans say 52-42 that Obama has been more of a failure than a success. Among registered voters, the gap is even bigger — at 55-39 — with four in 10 (41 percent) saying they “strongly” believe Obama has been a failure.

Those saying Obama has been a failure include one in four Democrats (25 percent), nearly three in 10 liberals (29 percent) and the vast, vast majority of conservative Republicans (92 percent). Nearly one in five liberals (18 percent) say they feel “strongly” that Obama has been a failure.

Is anyone going to accuse the Washington Post of racism?

That’s what typically happens to anyone who points out Obama’s many flaws.

    Before we get excited, your lead-in sentence provides a useful return-to-reason reminder. And let’s not forget that after the 2008 election, even the Washington Post’s ombudsman admitted that its campaign coverage was biased:

    “[Our] readers have been consistently critical of the lack of probing issues coverage and what they saw as a tilt toward Democrat Barack Obama. My surveys, which ended on Election Day, show that they are right on both counts.”
    – Deborah Howell, “An Obama Tilt in Campaign Coverage,” WaPo, November 9, 2008, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/07/AR2008110702895.html

    The Washington Post has an unfortunate track record of presenting unbiased reporting of facts and issues only after the information is no longer useful.
