Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll Results

May 17th, 2009 at 12:09pm

I don’t have a new poll ready yet, however I do need to close the old poll due to both the fact that it has been up for well over a week, and the possibility that new votes may be taking more than the first hundred days in to account. As such, I will post the results now, and put up a new poll tomorrow.

What grade do you give Barack Obama for the first 100 days of his presidency?

A very interesting spread there. I suppose one way to interpret this would be the votes indicating “approve (“A” and “B”), “disapprove” (“D” and “F”) and “neutral” (“C”), which produces the following breakdown:

Approve: 13 (42%)
Disapprove: 14 (45%)
Neutral: 4 (13%)

For the record, I gave Mr. Obama a “D”, because my official grade for his first hundred days is a “D-“…it wasn’t a complete failure, but it would have struggled to be much worse, and it didn’t show many signs of promise. I’m sure he will be pleased to know that, if I had to grade the days since then, I’d probably give him a “C” or “C-“.

Anyway, a very interesting range of opinions in that poll. I’m pleased that I’m not alone, and it’s always nice to have someone to argue with! (well, almost always)
