The poll, conducted for CBS 5 by SurveyUSA, found half of Californians (50%) currently disapprove of the job the president is doing.

Mr. Obama drew positive marks from 46% in California, according to the poll results, while four percent were unsure.

      Don’t be silly and stop blaming Bush. Prsident Reagan inherited worse mess from Carter. Obama is in the office for nearly 4 years. Democrats had super-majority. What did they accomplish besides doubling the national debt?
