is Donald Trump. Obama handed over leadership of the country to him.
There is also Obama's record before the Supreme Court:
President Barack Obama had the worst record before the Supreme Court in
modern history, losing half of the cases argued before the High Court in his
two terms, according to a new study.
The academic study written by Washington University professor Lee Epstein
and University of Chicago law professor Eric Posner found Obama had the
"worst record of any President" since Franklin D. Roosevelt. In fact, his
presidential performance before the Supreme Court "may be the worst since
the Zachary Taylor administration" in the 19th century.
"A few commentators have noticed Obama's problems in the Court, attributing
them to Obama himself," they said.
The study also suggests that presidents have had less success in the Supreme
Court since the Reagan administration, when Ronald Reagan won 75 percent of
cases before the Court.
"Indeed the case was so clear-cut one can only conclude that the president
didn't care what the Constitution said," the Washington Post's Jennifer
Rubin observed at the time.
