A majority of Americans have become highly critical of US President Barack Obama’s campaign promise to change America as they believe his changes have left the country worse off, a new survey says.
According to a survey carried out by the American poll institute Pulse Opinion Research for The Hill, a Washington, D.C. newspaper, 56 percent of Americans believe Obama has changed America for the worse during his 3 and a half years in office.
This comes while 35 percent of voters think Obama’s changes were good for the country.
According to the poll, 91 percent of Republicans have expressed opposition to the US president’s changes, in comparison with 71 percent of Democrats who have expressed support for changes.
“The results signal broad voter unease with the direction the nation has taken under Obama’s leadership and present a major challenge for the incumbent Democrat as he seeks reelection this fall,”The Hill reported.
The poll also found that half of the voters pay more attention to the US 2012 presidential elections than the 2008 vote.
The paper said that the poll was conducted among 1,000 likely voters on July 5 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
