In 2008, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama ran on a platform that had the slogan “Yes, we can.” His rhetoric and vision won over the American voter and Obama went on to make history, becoming the first African-American president of this country. Eight years later, Obama is leaving the highest office with a legacy that spans across politics, social media and pop culture.

We want to know how you evaluate Obama’s job in the White House. Do you approve or disapprove of how he handled his job as president? Vote in the poll below and leave us a comment sharing your thoughts. You can also send us a video response to BeOnCh1@channelone.com. We will air the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    I approve of it. He just didn’t do his campaign the way he should of did. He did some things wrong and bad. But we have had better presidents.

  8. Donovin Lamm

    President Obama did very well because he solved our 2007-2008 financial problems.

  12. kyle

    I think he served well enough that we can have a new prsedent.

  13. Josh S.

    I disaprove of the way he did his job as president. He doubled the countries debt during his time in office and I believe that this will cause problems in the future for the United States.

    I don’t think that Obama held everything together because he is currently right now trying to start a world war 3
