    Two-thirds of likely voters say President Obama has kept his 2008 campaign promise to change America — but it’s changed for the worse, according to a sizable majority.

    A new poll for The Hill found 56 percent of likely voters believe Obama’s first term has transformed the nation in a negative way, compared to 35 percent who believe the country has changed for the better under his leadership.

    The results signal broad voter unease with the direction the nation has taken under Obama’s leadership and present a major challenge for the incumbent Democrat as he seeks reelection this fall.
    Conducted for The Hill by Pulse Opinion Research, the poll comes in the wake of last month’s Supreme Court decision that upheld the primary elements of Obama’s signature healthcare legislation.

    It found 68 percent of likely voters — regardless of whether they approve or disapprove of Obama — believe the president has substantially transformed the country since his 2009 inauguration.

    The feeling that Obama has changed the country for the worse is strongest among Republicans, at 91 percent, compared to 71 percent of Democrats who support Obama’s brand of change.

    He may have made a temporary change, but not in accordance with how he promised. A completely failed presidency:

    "56 percent of likely voters believe Obama’s first term has transformed the nation in a negative way..."

    yeah, and those polled were most likely right-wing nut teabagger dipshits.
    GOP always skewing facts/figures to pander to their ignorant following who will blindly listen to whatever it is they say.

    Ummm ...... the article doesn't state whether those polled hold him responsible or if it makes them less likely to vote for him

    Its merely a reflection of the state of the country right now
    and yeah it DOES suck

    Mainly because we are still on a republican trajectory
    We ARE STILL allowing the Bush Tax Cuts wreak havoc with out economy '
    We are STILL being held hostage by the republican coup in the legislature
    We are STILL listening to republican Crap when it comes to things like Guantanamo and the Afghan War

    and Just Like I said before Bush was elected .... Is God Help us if that republican gets into the WH

    and I'm sayin the same thing now
