    NYT: How much do members of the opposite party dislike whomever happens to be president? A lot, and the feeling seems to be getting stronger.

    A Quinnipiac University poll found that Barack Obama was the most frequent choice of Americans who were asked to name the worst president since World War II (33 percent compared with 28 percent who named George W. Bush). As a measure of people’s considered beliefs about presidential quality, the question is likely to overrepresent more recent presidents. But this sort of poll is instructive about the extent of the polarization among the public – in particular, about the visceral hostility to the president that has become routine among opposition partisans.

    Not surprisingly, the Quinnipiac “worst president” result was driven by Republican hostility to Mr. Obama. Among people who identified themselves as members of the G.O.P., 63 percent named Mr. Obama as the worst president, which represents a substantial increase in worst-president ratings relative to even Democrats under George W. Bush (56 percent in 2006) or Republicans under Bill Clinton (43 percent in 2000).

    Ah, our daily bombardment of New York Times content.
    If possible, you should try to dig up some polling content and articles from the Chicago Tribune which has a history of being the nation's premier republican leaning major city dailyicon_idea.gif

    I don't think you got my point. EVERYTHING this guy posts is from The New York Times. Odd.
    I am just suggesting to you this possible idea. Probably it is time to see things posted from other major dailies. Since the Chicago Tribune has a long history of being a republican leaning major daily I thought that it would be refreshing to see a different point of view on here.

    My votes for two worse president's are GW Bush and Obama. Not sure who is worse. They are both neck-and-neck. Right now, Obama has a few years to redeem himself. Doubt he will though.

    LMAO... did the extremely liberal and the Republican New York Times happen to mention that 52 percent of Democrats told cold also agreed that he was the worst president as well as 65% of Independence. by the way the 63% figure you site is incorrect as noted by many other liberal newspapers. And I was at the thought that the Chicago paper or any paper for that matter with a wide circulation is a Republican leading paper. In fact based on journalist surveys with the papers themselves only one was determined by the very workers themselves to be neutral while every other was liberal. Facts just the facts -which seems to be a problem for the New York Times time after time. They do lead by far in one area though: it is the number of editorists and journalist fired for either making up facts, misquotes or faked quotes or misleading of beliefs.
    Of course everyone knows the founding family ( see/research Sulzberger- Arthur O, Jr current chairman) and current editorial staff appointed by the family and its' foundation has a vested interest in supplying this information as they have donated 100's of millions of dollars to the Democratic Party..... HMMM. and Harry Reid attacks the Koch family on the senate floor because they happen to donate in their own name and not through a foundation that is set up for 'betterment of America'

    Can you spell lying two faced bullshiter who uses the well of the Senate for political gain simply to attack an American family that happened to make money employees many more persons and a higher wage than the beloved New York Times but he simply opposes their views?? it's very easy: R - E -I - D

    Not to even mention that the Senate sergeant of arms warned Reid that what he did was illegal 'even as a point of personal privelage'- the very most liberal provision in "Robert's Rules of Order". And in an open letter to Reid Senate democrat heavyweights chastised him for such unprofessional behavior 'unbecoming of a senator'.
    Weirdly I must have missed that article the New York Times.

    Here are the results of the poll by Quinnipiac University from which the NYT article was based http://www.quinnipiac.edu/news-and-events/quinnipiac-university-poll/national/release-detail?ReleaseID=2056

    The results clearly show that 63% of Republicans, 4% of Democrats, and 36% of Independents think Obama is worse.

    Show a rather limited view of history, which is somehow typical of right-wing believers.

    Andrew Johnson, for example? Harding?
