Poll Finds Most Americans Think Obama is Worse at Foreign Policy Than George W. Bush
President Obama likes to talk about how he was elected to end the wars in the Middle East. His supporters used to claim that Obama would bring peace to the world and that he wouldn’t be the cowboy that Bush was. It turns out though, not surprisingly, that when it comes to foreign policy, most see Obama as bad or even worse than Bush. According to Breitbart:
The poll also found that 74% of Americans believe military strikes against Syria would be “unwise,” and nearly half of the country feels that Washington’s permanent political class wants military action more than they do.
According to a Reason-Rupe poll, “64 percent of Americans, including 68 percent of independents and 41 percent of Democrats, believe President Obama” is as bad as or worse than Bush on foreign policy.
In addition, 47% of Americans said the “political establishment in Washington D.C.” is more likely to favor military intervention in Syria, with a majority of independents (57%) believing so. Meanwhile, only 17% of Americans said the permanent political class is less likely to favor military action than they are.
The poll was conducted from September 4-8, and its margin of error is +/- 3.7 percentage points.
This should surprise no one. Obama is terrible when it comes to foreign policy. Just look at Egypt, Libya, and even Syria as examples of what Obama can do.
