These are not good numbers. These are really as bad as numbers get considering that Democrats took it as an article of faith that George W. Bush had destroyed foreign policy completely and was barely more than a gibbering chimp.

As the country debates launching airstrikes on Syria, President Barack Obama’s standing on foreign policy has taken such a hit that the latest Reason-Rupe poll finds 64 percent of Americans, including 68 percent of independents and 41 percent of Democrats, believe President Obama’s handling of foreign policy is worse than, or the same as, former President George W. Bush’s handling of foreign policy.

When looking directly at the Democrats column, we find that only 56% of Dems say that Obama’s foreign policy skills are better than those of George W. Bush.

Would you say President Obama’s handling of foreign policy has been better or worse than former President George W. Bush’s handling of foreign policy, or are they about the same?

56% of Democrats say better.

13% actually say worse.

28% say about the same.

Among liberals, only 54% say that Obama’s handling of foreign policy is better than that of Bush. Among progressives, it’s at 58%. 16% of progs even seem to prefer Bush’s foreign policy.

Looks like Obama is losing even the Dems on foreign policy.

    Wow! When half of the liberals figure something out, you know something momentous is about to occur. Has underworld warming subsided and hell is freezing over?
    If by “handling,” the poll meant juggling, dropping the ball, or the inability to keep even one ball in the air, Obama would have done much better.

    When half of the liberals in this country finally
    figure something out, especially when they think George Bush handled foreign
    policy better than Obama, something momentous is about to happen. Has
    Underworld Warming gone cold? Has h*ll frozen over?

    Note: for whatever reason, I couldn’t fully spell a certain word that begins with “H” and ends with “L,” or my comment would get deleted. Why would that be?

      fortunately, it being the moron vote can be mathematically equated to 52% of 47% of the population who actually voted. You remember, the majority of the USA according to the muslim in chief.
