New national poll says Obama's trustworthy rating has changed significantly

The latest poll results have come out and they are not looking too good for Barack Obama and his administration.
According to Pew Research Center, public confidence in Obama has fallen to an all time level since his presidency began.

We he took office, a February 2009 survey showed Obama’s trustworthiness at 76%. Today only 52% of Americans think he is trustworthy.

Just since January 2013, the percentage of those who think he is not trustworthy zoomed from 30% to 45% now.

Today, over half of America, 51% says Obama is not “able to get things done.”

Many speculate that the President’s statements on Benghazi and Obamcare (Affordable Care Act), “You can keep you insurance. You can keep your doctor.”), that have demonstrated to be false from the results of the troubled health care website have contributed to his plummeting scores as a “good communicator.”

Pew’s national survey, in conjunction with USA Today (conducted Dec. 3-8 with 2001 adults) indicates those that rate Obama as a good communicator are down to 68%. This compares to 76% in January 2013.

“When he first took office, fully 92% described Obama as a good communicator,” Pew reported.

“There has been a rise in the percentage of Americans who say that the health care law has had a negative effect on the country – from 38% in September to 49% in the current survey.”
