70 Percent say America is on the Wrong Track

A new CBS News poll has distressing news for President Obama as he begins his campaign for re-election: fully 70 percent of Americans believe the country is on the “wrong track”–a figure that’s jumped twenty percentage points since Obama took office in 2009. “There is a clear message from this poll: people are just sick of Washington and Washington politicians,” said CBS News political correspondent Jan Crawford on CBS’ Early Show Friday morning. “Americans are saying things are getting worse, not better.”

Pollsters specifically asked about the president’s handling of the economy, and 57 percent said they disapproved of the way President Obama is handling the economy. “That’s his highest disapproval rating on the economy since he took office,” said Crawford. “That is potentially a real problem for the president.”
