Once staunch supporters of the President, former Obama voters are now expressing their disappointment in him, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd reported.
A focus group conducted by Peter Hart, a Democratic Pollster, found that President Obama is losing credibility with his faithful allies.
Eight of the eleven participants in the Ohio group- independents or independent leaners- voted for President Obama in 2012, but not one of them described themselves as “proud” or “satisfied” with him. Instead, they said that they were ‘disappointed’ with him, and used words like “inexperienced,” “powerless,” “cautious,” “timid,” and “overwhelmed” to describe him.
One participant told Hart: “I was really excited going into his first term. His first term was certainly a disappointment.” one focus group participant shared.”
Another participant added: “He’s a big disappointment. He’s not focused on creating more jobs, fixing the economy, getting things going again, making people more prosperous. It’s like the economy is just sitting still.”
