WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama benefits from a broadly held perception that others bear the bulk of responsibility for state of the U.S. economy, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll published on Tuesday.

Asked who was responsible for the economic meltdown, 80 percent in the poll blamed banks, financial institutions and corporations. Some 70 percent also blamed consumers for taking on too much debt and the former Bush administration for lax regulation. Only 26 percent said the Obama administration was not doing enough to turn the situation around.

Two-thirds of respondents approve of the way Obama is handling the presidency, and 60 percent approve of the way he is handling the economy.

Sixty-four percent said were confident Obama's policies will improve the economy, down from 72 percent just before he took office in January.

Forty two percent said the country was now heading in the right direction, a five-year high. Late last year, when then-President George W. Bush was in its final months, as many as nine in 10 American said the country was heading in the wrong direction.

The poll of 1,000 adults was conducted Thursday through Sunday and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

I have a nice Bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. This is a Skewed Left Wing Poll. The only poll that I will even consider is a Zogby Poll. Very balanced and fair.

U.S voters are not going to blame President Obama or Hillary Clinton...

Hillary stated when she was in New York City she does not care about background checks for aliens coming to America because she is focused on taking all guns away from law abiding citizens.. She never utter one word about taking guns away from criminals.

And the results of Hillary Clinton policy she allowed Chinese aliens without any back ground checks to enter country. She was very surprised when the Oriental Criminal went on a rampage and killed over a dozen people.

Thanks to Hillary none of the 12 victims were armed so they could save their own life.

Thank you Hillary job well done...

Thank you
