A poll by New Quinnipiac University shows President Obama rated as the worst president since World War II. The poll also indicates a number of voters say the country would be better off with Mitt Romney as president.

Thirty-three percent of those surveyed say Obama is the worst. George W. Bush wasn't far behind with 28 percent. But voters say by a narrow 37 - 34 percent that Obama is better for the economy than Bush.

Thirteen percent picked Richard Nixon and 8 percent named Jimmy Carter.

Researchers don't have an explanation for President Obama and Bush's rankings. However, they say both have been in charge during a time of bitter partisanship.
