WASHINGTON, July 2 (UPI) -- A new poll from Quinnipiac University has found that many people consider President Barack Obama to be the worst president since World War II and think that Mitt Romney would have been a better choice in 2012.
"Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Quinnipiac also found that 45 percent of respondents felt the country would have been better off if Romney had been elected, and only 38 percent still believe Obama was the better choice.
"Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes," Malloy said.
Only eight percent of respondents felt that Obama was the best post-WWII president.
