It doesn’t really come as a surprise, but a new poll out today confirmed many of our suspicions. We can finally see that most Americans don’t like President Obama’s policies. In a new poll out today, it was revealed that almost two-thirds of Americans want the next president to change the current agenda.

The new Pew poll results show that Obama is truly in a second-term slump. 65 percent of Americans surveyed said they want the next president to have different programs or policies from those of President Obama. Only 30 percent said they wanted similar policies carried out when we get a new president in the White House.

Back in 2006, when President Bush was facing a similar slump, 77 percent said they wanted different policy initiatives. This desire for change was a big reason why Obama was elected, and now once again we are seeing the voters dissatisfied by their choices. Will we ever be happy with the choices we make for our leadership?

At the very least we can be pretty sure this is going to have a big impact on what happens in 2016. Perhaps this is something that the republicans will have to try and capitalize on come 2014 and again in 2016.
