Not that it should surprise anyone, but President Obama’s approval rating for his handling of international affairs has hit an all-time low, according to the results of a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
From ABC News:
At 41 percent, Obama’s approval rating for handling international affairs is down slightly, by six points, from early March, and down further, by 13 points, since his re-election, to a career low. Fifty percent disapprove, a new high, with those who strongly disapprove outnumbering strong approvals by 2-1.
In further criticism on the international front, 58 percent said the Obama administration has tried to cover up the facts about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya in 2012.
We have to wonder what these poll numbers might have looked like if surveys had been taken following the absurd swap of five dangerous terrorist prisoners for one American soldier who may have been deserting when he was captured in Afghanistan.
The new numbers suggest that Americans are finally starting to understand what happened in Benghazi, and may keep open minds during upcoming congressional hearings. It’s about time this administration is held accountable for its actions. Apparently the people are finally tired of waiting for this man to produce and are ready for change.
