Wednesday, July 23, 2008 Email to a FriendAdvertisement While Barack Obama has touted his travel to the Middle East and Europe this week as a fact-finding trip, 63% of Americans do not believe it makes the Democratic candidate any more qualified to be president.
A new Rasmussen Reports national survey, taken Monday night, also finds that less than a third (32%) think Obama will learn from his trip to Iraq. Forty percent (40%) say his mind is already made up about policies to deal with the war there. The Democrat has been accused by liberals in his party of softening his long-standing opposition to the war in Iraq in an effort to appeal to more moderate voters.
Only 39% of Democrats say Obamas travels this week make him more qualified to be president, while 42% disagree. Eighty-six percent (86%) of Republicans and 67% of unaffiliateds feel the same way. The gap widens when how an individual plans to vote is factored in: 44% of likely Obama voters see the travel as a positive, while 89% of those who plan to vote for McCain disagree.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of likely Obama voters say he will learn from his trip to Iraq, but 66% of potential McCain supporters say he made up his mind before traveling there. Democrats overall are a bit more skeptical, with 49% saying he will learn on the trip. Among unaffiliated voters, a key bloc in the upcoming election, 28% think Obama will learn from the trip, but 38% think he made up his mind before going to Iraq.
Obombr we have lift off!!
Little Barry on summer vacation trip. What a joke. It’s strictly a photo-op trip to shoot the images to be used in the post Labor Day campaign.
I can’t believe 37% actually believe this stunt of a trip makes him better prepared to be President.
My thoughts exactly.
I don't care who y'are, that there's funny.
That's not the Rasmussen poll I knew as a primary candidate.
This simply OBET!
(Obama’s Big Ego Trip)
If anything it shows him to be less then “p” material.
Kiddies need not apply.
Who are the 37% fools?!?!?
Well, they're going to vote for him anyway, and they can't tell the poller that they'd rather we all be communists, so they BS him with this line.
Only 23% thought it made him more prepared. I think 14% were unsure.
IN YOUR FACE OBAMANATION!!
It also probably reflects the backlash on the media, and shows their power is waning. WOuldn’t that be nice?
Somewhat OT. Latest Rasmussen Poll in Ohio shows Stuttering Barry behind 52% to 42% behind McCain.
The reality check to the NBC/WSJ poll results released today.
