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.
