Americans Losing Faith in Obama

Americans disapprove of President Obama's handling "of almost every major issue and are deeply pessimistic about the nation's direction, offering a bullish environment for Republicans in the November congressional elections," according to a new Bloomberg National Poll.

"A majority or plurality disapproves of Obama's management of the economy, health care, the budget deficit, the overhaul of financial market regulations and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, almost 6 in 10 respondents say the war in Afghanistan is a lost cause."

Said pollster Ann Selzer: "They don't see any solutions in sight. They have been hammered by the economy and there is a disconnect between the lives Americans are living and Washington. They seem to have lost hope."

Key finding: "Almost two-thirds say they feel the nation is headed in the wrong direction, an even more sour assessment than in March when 58% felt that way."
