...Only 26% Of U.S. Voters Say He Deserves Nobel Prize (Quinnipiac)
Quinnipiac University ^ | 12/8/2009

Posted on 12/08/2009 8:18:48 AM PST by markomalley

(snip)

The jump in public support for Obama's war policy comes as voters say 66 - 26 percent he does not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize he will be awarded this week, and 41 percent say the Nobel committee's choice of Obama for the award causes them to think less of it, while 6 percent say it makes them think better of the prize and 49 percent say it makes no difference.

(snip)

"It's probably a good thing for President Obama that the time difference from Norway means the Nobel presentation will occur while most Americans are sleeping and might get less coverage in the United States," Brown added. "Two out of three Americans don't think he deserves it compared to the quarter who do. Even among Democrats, only 49 percent think he deserves it, compared to 8 percent of Republicans and 19 percent of independent voters. As is the case with many questions related to the President there are wide gender and racial gaps."

Among women, 31 percent think Obama deserves the award, compared to only 19 percent of men. Seventy-three percent of blacks, 29 percent of Hispanics and 18 percent of whites think so.

66% say no... Good on them
26% say yes... Who are these morons?
8% cannot make up their minds... Obviously cannot spell "cat", even if you spotted them the "a" and the "t".

Even among Democrats, only 49 percent think he deserves it, compared to 8 percent of Republicans and 19 percent of independent voters.

Que? There are Democrats that believe he does not deserve the thing??? The 8% of RINO's makes sense, since Snowe and McCain are still around.

"As is the case with many questions related to the President there are wide gender and racial gaps."

"Among women, 31 percent think Obama deserves the award, compared to only 19 percent of men. Seventy-three percent of blacks, 29 percent of Hispanics and 18 percent of whites think so."

Now there's a stretch... I would have figured the Black Community would weigh in at 96%, the same slice that voted for him in the first place.

Wow! Everything this guy does, “accomplishes” and says turns to lead. BO is as big a loser as anyone I’ve ever known or heard of. His life is a vacuous black hole of nothing. I’d have a difficult time getting up every morning if I lived my life like this.

In other words, 26% are mindless O-bots who would follow their messiah off a cliff.

Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Price for “getting elected while black”.

...funny thing about polls and the “don’t know” crowd. I’ve seen polls that cost .50 cents to be a part of and there was STILL a percentage of “don’t knows”! Imagine being so stupid that you paid to say “I don’t know”?!

“8 percent of Republicans”

Why do these people continue to call themselves Rs? Just leave the party for goodness sake! I’m so sick of these liberals that call themselves Rs but don’t have a conservative bone in their body. They are nothing but liars, intentionally or not.

true but why do the blackls and libs always think he is black.

He’s more Arab than black and he’s mostly white.

They’re so desperate to have a non white guy in power thay can’t think straight.

silly me they never think straight anyway

Your observations are dead on! Obozo the blasphemer is learning the hard way that America really is a Christian nation and it takes a real relationship with the King of Kings to be sucessful. His dismal performance in office will serve as painful reminder to our people of this fact.

And 27% strongly support the job he is doing (Ramussen)...27% would drink the Kool-aide if he told them to.

“This tells me that 1 in 4 voters in this country are A LOST CAUSE.”

This tells me that 3 in 4 voters in this country are smarter than the Nobel Committee (though I realize this is news of the “dog bites man” variety).

The "OJ voters" strike again.


The Jury By Race: 9 Blacks, 1 Hispanics, 2 Whites The Jury By Sex: 10 Women, 2 Men The Jury By Education: 2 College Graduates, 9 High School Graduates, 1 Without Diploma Some other facts about the final jury: (1) None regularly read a newspaper, but eight regularly watch tabloid TV shows, (2) five thought it was sometimes appropriate to use force on a family member, (3) all were Democrats, (4) five reported that they or another family member had had a negative experience with the police, (5) nine thought that Simpson was less likely to be a murderer because he was a professional athlete. The racial composition of the initial jury pool differed considerably from the racial composition of the final jury. The pool was 40% white, 28% black, 17% Hispanic, and 15% Asian.
