In a much anticipated interview with 60 Minutes over the weekend, President Obama mused on all things political ahead of his last midterm election, Reuters reports.
Though he acknowledged that there still exist general disapproval of his performance in an economy that his still to fully recover, Obama assured that he believe Democrats will hold the Senate.
“I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis.” He continued:
“Ronald Reagan used to ask the question: ‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?’ In this case, are you better off than you were in six? And the answer is, the country is definitely better off than we were when I came into office.”
The trouble is Americans don’t seem to agree with the president on this account of his record. With approval ratings continuing to drop, even in his most loyal blue states, his reputation shows no signs of ending the drag it has put on the prospects of embattled Senate Democrats.
