Washington – Economic recession that wrapped around the United States makes some people feel dissatisfied with the performance of the U.S. Congress and President Barack Obama.
Before Election 1994, 2006, and 2010, many Americans say the presidential candidate who was served (the incumbent) does not deserve reelection. Now the sentiment was reaching its highest during the general elections of 2012. So reports USA Today
USA Today wrote this is similar to the level of support that were surveyed before Election 1994, 2006, and 2010. In 1994, Republicans won the House and Senate seats. In 2006, Democrats won control of the House and Senate. Last fall Republicans won control of parliament.
Based on polls conducted media USA Today / Gallup, more than half of respondents felt the U.S. Congress members should be replaced for poor performance. Only 24 percent of those entitled to judge the members of Congress reelected.
That amount was the smallest since Gallup first posed the question to the respondent in 1991.
Poll respondents also netted a choice about the performance of President Barack Obama. Apparently, a majority or 51 percent rate Obama does not deserve to be re-elected as president. As many as 47 percent say he deserves. When competed against Republican anonymously, Obama lead thin only 49-45 percent. But Obama’s support remains below 50 percent.
“When asked if there is substantial dissatisfaction with the direction of state policy and the circumstances that occurred under the leadership of the people in charge? The answer is yes,” said Stuart Rothenberg, editor of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report media told USA Today, Tuesday (9 / 8).
Later, the popularity of the Barack Obama is declining due to the country’s economic crisis. The U.S. even had almost defaulted on its debt as a result have not agreed to increase the debt ceiling of U.S. $ 14.3 trillion.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney leads the competition in the Republic with 24 percent support. He was followed by Texas Governor Rick Perry who received 17 percent support. Perry has not declared his intention to go forward, but is expected to do this Saturday. Perry followed by Texas Representative Ron Paul with 14 percent support and Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann with 13 percent.
Although eventually the U.S. debt ceiling is raised, the country’s debt ratings from AAA down to AA degree +. Downgrades this is the first time in the history of America’s debt rating and the company does a credit rating agency Standard and Poor’s.
