Split decision: Americans assess Obama’s legacy

Americans in a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll rate the Affordable Care Act as President Obama’s greatest achievement in the White House. Also, as his biggest failure. …

About a third of those surveyed say Obama ultimately will be seen as a “good” president; 18% say he’ll be a “great” one. But one in four say history will rate him as only “fair,” and another one in four say he’ll be seen as a “failed” president.

The split by party is predictably stark: 86% of Democrats say Obama will be judged to have been a good or great president; 83% of Republicans say he will be seen as a fair or failed one. CONT.
