Pres. Obama has a lot more power and room to push Republicans than he’s using.
But Obama isn’t seen as most responsible for the bad economy, with just eight percent of Americans saying his administration is most to blame. Of those surveyed, 26 percent still say the Bush administration is most to blame for the economy, down slightly from 28 percent in March 2010. Nearly the same percentage of those surveyed – 25 percent – say that Wall Street is most to blame, while 11 percent point to Congress. – Poll: 4 in 10 see ‘permanent decline’
