CNN Poll: Plurality of Public Thinks Obama's Policies Will Fail; Fewer People Are Even Hoping He Succeeds

Four words: We hope he fails?

Not really "we" because 61% of the public says they want Obama's policies to succeed; but that's down a big 10% since the December before last.

President Barack Obama enters the new year with a growing number of Americans pessimistic about his policies and a growing number rooting for him to fail, according to a new national poll.

But a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday also indicates that while a majority of the public says Republican control of the House of Representatives is good for the country, only one in four say the GOP will do a better job running things than the Democrats did when they controlled the chamber.

Sixty-one percent of people questioned in the poll say they hope the president's policies will succeed.

"That's a fairly robust number but it's down 10 points since last December," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Twelve months ago a majority of the public said that they thought Obama's policies would succeed; now that number has dropped to 44 percent, with a plurality predicting that his policies will likely fail."

Only 44% think his policies will succeed. That's something, I guess.
