After a (questionable) Quinnipiac poll generated headlines calling Barack Obama the worst president since World War II, presidential historian Julian Zelizer joins Brian Stelter to go beyond the media hype and place the poll results in context.
Here's how the university summarized the poll: "President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, 33 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Another 28 percent pick President George W. Bush."
Zelizer said the poll "fuels a conversation about the problems with President Obama, and it will create some political problems for him potentially as people make these comparisons. But I don't think it tells us much about his presidency or how his presidency compares to those who came before him."
He cautioned that "the reputation of a president changes over time, very dramatically."
