Poll: Fewer Americans think Obama can get things done
A new survey by Pew Research finds that fewer Americans believe in President Obama's ability to effectively legislate than did right after the election.
As Obama works toward advancing his second-term agenda, the public is divided over whether he is someone who is able to get things done (49%) or not (46%). Views of Obama’s effectiveness have declined since shortly after his re-election, when more saw him as effective (57%) than did not (37%).
76 percent of those surveyed did say that the President stands up for what he believes in, and 67 percent said he fights to get his policies passed.
