American voters are sharply divided over how things went this year, and they continue to give President Obama mixed reviews. Meanwhile, voters are almost twice as likely to say Obama will be one of the country’s “worst” presidents as to say he will be one of the “greatest,” according to a year-end Fox News poll released Thursday.
Some 42 percent of voters feel 2012 was a good year, while 41 percent say it was bad. Another 15 percent have mixed feelings.
Some 57 percent of Democrats say 2012 was a good year, while the exact same number of Republicans -- 57 percent -- feels the opposite. Plus, independents split: 40 percent good, 40 percent bad.
The divide continues on the economy: 79 percent of Democrats think the economy will be better a year from now, while 70 percent of Republicans say it will be worse.
Overall, 49 percent think the economy will be better and 42 percent worse.
Just under half of voters -- 48 percent -- approve of the job Obama is doing as president, down from 51 percent right before the election (October 2012). Almost as many -- 46 percent -- disapprove.
