Only 53% ?

Only 53% of Americans think the Obama presidency is a failure?
A clear majority of Americans describe President Obama's tenure as a "failure" according to a new poll released Monday.

The survey from IBD/TIPP indicates that 53 percent of adults in the United States now characterize Obama's presidency as a "failure," while 41 percent chalk it up as a success. Half of the people who live in states won by Obama see his tenure negatively, as do 59 percent of those aged 25-44 years old.
Those who see his administration as “successful” are clearly nothing more than partisan hacks. On what basis could any of his presidency be considered successful?

What (good) has he accomplished? What has he done (well)?  It certainly isn't Obamacare:
Although more provisions of the Affordable Care Act have taken effect over the past year, more Americans still say the law has hurt rather than helped them. Compared with early 2014, fewer Americans say it has had no effect, although this group is still in the majority, at 54%.

This is what happens when you vote for someone based on their skin color (or their sex, or any other non-applicable attribute) instead of on their proven record of accomplishment.

The other 87% aren't paying attention.
