I I think it depends on which English you are referring to. US English or UK English. There are vast differences, but basically
the average American would use bad over poor because American English is far less formal than it's mother language, English English. The average english person would tend to say 'poor english' or 'his or her English was poor'... .. look at your language settings...or on the spacebar where it says English(US). In my opinion US English is the lazy son of UK English and so like with most questions the - right or correct or accurate or best - answer depends on whom you ask.
Poor
I think "bad" is absolute, while "poor" is relative. If most people write using a beautiful clear English, then a merely mediocre sentence might be poor--but if most people write using a mediocre English, than a poor sentence would be truly terrible. Bad exists independent of the performance of others.
