CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012
By Michael O'Brien - 02/16/10 01:35 PM ET
52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012, according to a new poll.
44 percent of all Americans said they would vote to reelect the president in two and a half years, less than the slight majority who said they would prefer to elect someone else.
Obama faces a 44-52 deficit among both all Americans and registered voters, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll released Tuesday. Four percent had no opinion.
The reelection numbers are slightly more sour than Obama's approval ratings, which are basically tied. 49 percent of people told CNN that they approve of the way Obama is handling his job, while 50 percent disapprove.
Still, the 2012 election is still a long way's away, with this fall's midterm elections looming large. Republicans are hoping to make inroads into Congress, while Democrats are hoping to hold onto gains won in the 2006 and 2008 cycles.
Respondents to CNN were split at 46 percent as to whether they preferred a generic Republican or Democratic candidate in this fall's elections.
At least one retiring lawmaker is confident Obama will sail to reelection, with Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) predicting Monday the president would win "overwhelmingly" in 2012.
The CNN poll, conducted Feb. 12-15, has a three percent margin of error.
I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell ya...
These polls from the previous
The haiku of FAIL.
AND reported the results...
And only idiots say he deserved a first.
I wanna show you something. It’s my shocked face. :-o
...I’m surprised it’s ONLY 52% that don’t think he deserves a 2nd term...
I’m shocked that there are evidently 48% who would reelect him.
Now thats a real shocker ha! Obama needs to be removed from office NOW before there is nothing left. All I can say is GOD help us!!
I could have told them that over a year ago now we all have to put up with his BS for the next three years.
Friday night when Geraldo started in on the president, I knew it was over. I think only Juan Williams is left to defend the great zero.
tee hee [covering mouth]
No shocker. It’s probably even worse if CNN is reporting this.
Gee, I wonder what they would have gotten had they polled some Conservative voters?
LOL. This from a quitter who got out before the deluge.
Here’s another shocker: He didn’t deserve the FIRST term, for heaven’s sake. Our media needs to be punished for at least a decade over their fawning, non-vetting coverage of this fraud who is currently occupying the Oval Office. To this day, I have never uttered or written the words “president” and Obama together. Something just isn’t American about this guy, his name, and his background. A fraud. An imposter. He needs to go.
I suspect the ‘Bradley effect’ is now taking hold in opinion polls about Obama.
