Former Obama supporters now describe him as 'powerless' and 'overwhelmed'

MSNBC reported Monday that a focus group comprised of "independent" Ohio voters, conducted by Democrat pollster Peter Hart, revealed that many former supporters of Barack Obama are now extremely disappointed with the President.

The group was made up of 11 voters who all descibed themselves as "independent," and eight of the 11 said they voted for President Obama in 2012.

The voters used words like “inexperienced,” “powerless,” “timid,” and “overwhelmed” when describing President Obama. Not one of them said they were "proud" of the president, or "satisfied" with him.

“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,” one group member said.

"He's really turned out to be just another politican," said another member of the group.

The findings of the focus group, though it was small, is right in line with recent polls that show Obama hemorrhaging support across the board. The president's approval rating remains at a record low, and has been nose-diving since the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare on Oct. 1.

Hart, describing the result of the focus group, said, "There was no sense of strength that came out of this. It was a sense of somebody that's being buffeted around by the wind."
