A new poll shows that 44 percent of Americans believe the economy is worse off under President Obama than when George Bush was in office.
The poll, conducted by Bloomberg, shows that the continuing lack of jobs available for the American public is causing alarming concern of the president’s economic direction.
In an ABC News/Washington Post poll released earlier this week, only one-third of Americans believe the country is headed in the right economic direction. Only 10 percent of Americans believe the unemployment rate will go under five percent in the next 2 years.
Unemployment is currently at 9.1 percent, while the African-American unemployment rate is at record highs slightly over 16 percent.
