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.
He doesnt deserve this term!
Does anyone bother to read the article? 52% would not vote for 0bama again and 44% would. That’s an 8% difference.
Now ain't that just comforting!
Every day that goes by and every press release is digging a hole this administration will eventually be unable to climb out of. Buzzing this week is about taxing the middle class....and the buzzing isn't only among middle class conservatives and independents. People are weary of the almost daily assault we face from this administration.
And Obama's answer to this weariness is to get in front of the cameras MORE. He thinks he hasn't communicated well enough. LOL!
I say GO for it, Obama. Make everyone sick of you!
What is CNN driving at via their poll, dictatorship or more change?
I NEVER watch Geraldo for even a minute anymore, because of the very reason that he has such a love/crush affair going on with obama!
If he says something negative about obama then it is falling apart for the fake-o!
I bet he can get that up closer to 70% in another year!
If CNN says 52%...it’s probably higher! LOL!
heard some muppet today saying that phony was strong on national security
yes my TV nearly exploded
18 of blacks will not change their vote
aging hippies who took too many drugs and have not understood yet this is not he 60’s or 70’s so that is about what? 8% and then there is the college up their own arse students who have no clue and think voting is like American idol, I’d say they are about 15% of the voting block
the rest I have no clue who they are but they are dumb for sure
I actually pity the students who support him, they have no clue what so ever and have been brainwashed by lefty loon teachers.
When I see them with their stickers and shirts I have to laugh as they’re so dumb and stupid and yet they have no clue about it
I vote for the goat
if his numbers are really down then I think he will not run either, his ego could not take a defeat but I will be happy to see him watch as his lefty loon policies are overturned
As for his scrounging money grabbing work shy fat arse wife then I can’t wait to see her face when they leave the white house
People were dumb enough to elect him the first time.
Have some faith in your fellow citizens. :D
Well, to start with it's a poll of "adult Americans" including but NOT restricted to registered voters.
Translation: if this were a likely voter poll, Obama would already be losing in a landslide.
8% is a pretty good spread for CNN to admit to. Their viewership is in free fall, so they’re test ballooning a little reality to save their ratings. Too late - CNN & the Dems have no credibility left at all.
