Plurality Of Americans Thinks Obama Is Less Competent Than Bush

Another poll has undercut the aura of Hope and Change that Barack Obama brought to Washington, D.C. in 2009.  A plurality of Americans thinks he's less competent than George W. Bush. Then again, would you give Obama high marks for health care, Veterans Affairs, and this Bergdahl fiasco?

Fox News conducted the poll and asked: Do you think the Obama administration is more or less competent than the George W. Bush administration?

Forty-eight percent said less competent, while 42% said he was more competent.

Also, the poll asked, "Do you think the Obama administration is more or less competent than the Bill Clinton administration?"

The results shouldn't have been surprising; 68% said less competent, with 18% saying Obama was more competent.  True, Bill Clinton is a popular figure, but Bush-bashing sure seems popular, too.
