A new poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University found that a majority of Americans do not think that the Obama administration is competent enough to run the government, and Republican strategist Mary Anna Mancuso says its because President Barack Obama is unable to lead.

"As the president, he's supposed to lead our nation, and with the new poll that was just released, he's unable to do that," Mancuso told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV.

"We've got 54 percent of people who don't believe he's fit to lead the country, and if he can't lead, then how is Congress supposed to fall in line and do what's necessary," she said.

"He can't get anything done and whatever they do, he's going to overstep them and not going to follow through on that, and that's a problem," says Mancuso, author of the blog Political Hype.

The same poll also found that American voters think Obama is the worst president since World War II.

Amy Siskind, president of The New Agenda, told Newsmax that while Obama may not be very popular right now, Congress is even less popular.

"There are real problems in this country with unemployment, with other issues, with immigration, that needs to be fixed, and we can't have our Congress doing nothing and have bipartisanship," Siskind said.

"Technically, the way our government works is the job of Congress is to come up with bills and send them to the president to be signed. But we've had the lowest productivity in Congress this year and last year than in any other Congress in history," she added.

Siskind contends that Obama is moving to enact more laws through executive order as a "Band-Aid" on an "unproductive Congress."

Mancuso said the problem stems from a lack of trust that Congress has for the president.

"We cannot trust him to enact the law as it is written, and right now as we head into a recess . . . Congress does not trust the president enough, the people don't trust the president enough," she added.
