Obama Policies Unfocused, Ineffective Say a Plurality of Voters

President Obama's inability to stem the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico or jumpstart an economy mired in a deep recession is weighing heavily on the minds of voters, according to the results of a new poll conducted by Zogby International. That poll finds that a plurality of voters feel the President's policies are "unfocused, disorganized and ineffective."  The poll was conducted June 25-28 and surveyed 2,061 likely voters.

The Poll asked:

Which of the following statements most closely matches your opinion?


Statement A: "In general, President Obama's policies have been focused, organized and effective."


Statement B: "In general, President Obama's policies have been unfocused, disorganized and ineffective"

Overall, 48% of voters said Obama's policies are unfocused, disorganized and ineffective, compared to just 36% of voters who feel his policies are focused, organized and effective.

Among Independent voters, 49% agree that Obama's policies were unfocused, disorganized and ineffective, while just 32% feel the opposite is true. 

Among voters age 18-29 years old, 46% say Obama's policies are unfocused, disorganized and ineffective, compared to 33% who say they are focused, organized and effective.

A sizeable 85% of NRA members, 80% of tea party followers and 50% of small business owners or partners feel that Obama's policies are unfocused, disorganized and ineffective, while just 7% of NRA members, 10% of tea party followers and 36% of small business owners or partners feel the opposite was true.

The Zogby International poll was commissioned by The O'Leary Report newsletter. The Poll surveyed 2,061 voters June 25-28, and has a margin-of-error of plus-or-minus 2.2 percentage points.
