On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd reacted to the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showing President Barack Obama’s job approval rating at 41 percent, matching a previous low, and also finding 54 percent of those polled saying they no longer feel the president “is able to lead the country and get the job done.”
According to Todd, this is a sign that the American public has determined this is the beginning of the end of Obama’s presidency and he likened it to then-President George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina, in which his poll numbers took a hit for his administration of the disaster’s aftermath.
“This poll is a disaster for the president,” Todd said. “You look at the presidency here: lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.”
