More than half of the public is disappointed with President Obama’s tenure as commander-in-chief since he took office in 2009, according to a new poll.
Fifty-nine percent of people say they’re disappointed in his presidency so far, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll released Wednesday.
Since January, Obama’s approval rating has ticked down from 46 percent to 41 percent.
The president still has received a higher approval rating from Congress, whose job only 13 percent of the public approves. Eight percent, meanwhile, disapproves of lawmakers’ jobs.
A majority of the country, 79 percent, is unhappy with Washington, the poll indicates.
The news outlets released an initial set of results from the poll Wednesday morning, which said 82 percent of Democrats want Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonKasich helps girl secure prom date Clinton responds to Obama's 'Aunt Hillary' joke Sanders's fundraising shrinks in April MORE to run for president in 2016.
