WASHINGTON (Reuters) A new poll on Monday found signs of trouble ahead for President Barack Obama and his Democrats on national security issues such as the handling of terrorism suspects.
The poll was conducted jointly by Democratic Corps, a Democratic organization, and Third Way, a progressive non-profit organization. It was done mainly to gauge voters' views on Democrats' handling of national security.
The poll also found weaknesses for the Democrats on other issues ahead of November elections, in which they hope to defend their strong majorities in Congress.
The poll found 60 percent of Americans believe the United States is on the wrong track. It also found that people rated Democrats at about the same level as Republicans, in what amounted to an erosion of the advantage Democrats have held.
"We would not want the election to be held today, with this poll," said Democracy Corps' chief pollster Stan Greenberg. "If the election were held today, this would be a 'change' election."
Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, interviewed by Newsweek, shrugged off a question about whether she was worrying about the November elections, saying they are a long way off.
"We can't afford to focus on the day-to-day polls," she said. "If you think that we should second-guess (Obama's) decision to do fundamentally big things, there are plenty of other people who would have been that kind of president. That's not the kind of president he wants to be."
Obama received strong ratings in the poll on his handling of national security challenges such as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Before today I had never heard of the Democratic Corpse . . . I wonder why they named it that?
Don't thank me, I'll send you my bill . . . .
There's nothing "potential" about it. They are in REAL trouble.
Sure took a long time for Obama to send more additional troops over seas.
Now he wants all the glory. Guess he needs to have done something in the past year. Took him six months to decide about a little pooch.
What a guy - Such a leader for the free World....
What pray tell will folks think of Rahm Emanuel who haunts the Congressional Gym, naked and enraged.
Potential? No, it’s a certainty just like the sun will up tomorrow.
We The People won’t forget the war that was declared on America by Zero and his thug Administration and the traitors in Congress. November, it’s personal.
And without shower curtains? I wonder if Bawney Fwank has this fetish..ah you know..just to have a wee peek once in a while?
This is more like it: voters' views on Democrats'
handling fumbling of national security.
Voters have been screaming since last summer at their Congressmen and Senators. Loudly. But they can't believe their lyin' eyes. Duh!
“Obama received strong ratings in the poll on his handling of national security challenges such as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.”
Because Gates, Jones and the military are handling things not Obozo the TWAP.
Is that you, Bob?
Same reason Kim named North Korea 'The Peoples Democratic Republic of Korea."
They’d probably rather visualize a corpse than that
"This plan is guaranteed to produce victory for the Democrats this November, just as sure as I have a full head of hair!
The poll was conducted jointly by Democratic Corps, a Democratic organization, and Third Way, a progressive non-profit organization.
8 more months to go...
Eventually they are going to decide that the elections are NOT that far off, and then the panic will ensue.
Or..., as Obama would say...”Democracy Corpse”
Potential trouble? Bwahahahahahahaha!
