Poll: Obama Staffers Are Incompetent Stewards of Government

Even some Democrats agree.


Has the Obama administration competently and effectively managed the government? A Fox News poll released Wednesday finds a majority of American voters says no—including about a third of Democrats. 

A 58-percent majority says the White House has not been competent at managing the federal government. Some 32 percent of Democrats join 67 percent of independents and 84 percent of Republicans in holding that view.

Forty percent of voters do say the administration has been competent at running the government. 

Those marks are a bit worse than those Barack Obama receives on his overall job performance as president: 42 percent of voters approve, while 52 percent disapprove. Last month 41 percent approved and 54 percent disapproved (June 21-23, 2014).
