Obama Gives Himself a B+ Grade for First 11 Months; Does America Agree?

President Obama, if you were being graded, what grade would you give yourself so far?

President Obama told Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night he gives himself a “good, solid B-plus” for his first 11 months in the Oval Office.

In his first year, Obama has so far fallen just a trillion-plus dollars short of being able to give himself an A.

Do the American people agree with Obama’s grade? I’m no poll analyist, but this sure doesn’t look like it translates to a B+ to me:


Here are the results of a NY Daily News poll that accompanies the Obama/Oprah story, as of 9:15 a.m. Monday:


Update: I was trying to put together a standard report card for the president in the usual subjects we were all graded on in school, and it’s clear that the president has had problems in history, in math, in gym, in spelling, and in geography. At least enough problems to fall below a B+ in these standard subjects.
