Pollster John Zogby says President Barack Obama is "not only racing for his legacy but for his relevancy."

A report in the Washington Examiner says that those who are most disappointed in Obama are Republicans, conservatives, whites and a majority of people over 50 years old. The poll finds that president's support has also dropped among men and women in general. His support among liberals dropped 7 points, with Hispanics he is down 6 points and among African Americans he has dropped 10 points. And almost half of all voters think Obama is "unable to lead."

"Mr. Obama finds himself in the uncomfortable position where every age group, independents, and whites all agree that the public has given up on his ability to accomplish anything before the end of his term," The Examiner quoted Zogby as saying. "In short, we see a president in full salvage mode."

The good news for the White House is that the American public has an even lower opinion of Congress, according to the report.

The Zogby findings come on the heels of a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday that said Obama is considered the worst president since World War II.

According to the Washington Examiner, continued scandals like the Benghazi attacks, mismanagement at the VA, the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups and the trade of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban officers have all contributed to Obama being ranked lower than George W. Bush, Richard Nixon, and Jimmy Carter.
