Skip to comments.New poll: Democrats losing enthusiasm in presidential campaign
Posted on 10/18/2011 11:13:44 AM PDT by South40
As the 2012 election draws closer, Democrats are getting less not more enthusiastic about the prospect of voting for president.
In a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll just more than four in 10 (42 percent) Democrats said they were either extremely or very enthusiastic about the 2012 vote.
Those numbers compare unfavorably to Democratic enthusiasm number in CNN surveys from the spring and summer, when 56 percent and 55 percent of Democrats, respectively, described themselves as either extremely or very enthusiastic about voting next year.
By contrast, the level of Republican enthusiasm has been high and steady for months. In a March CNN survey, 64 percent said they were extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in 2012; an equal 64 percent said the same in the October survey.

The democrat party experienced a similar phenomenon when Carter ran for a second term.
Democrats losing enthusiasm in presidential campaign
That’s because “O” has been campaigning since 2008
Doug Schoen - the Clinton pollster is warning Obama not to support the OWSers.
IMHO the Democrats who are enthusiastic about voting in the 2012 election are probably going for Cain;)
top-ranking Democrat insiders all know the truth...they have GOT to find a way to kick Barry to the curb or they are all T-O-A-S-T
In my view the danger of the Occupiers does not lie so much in civil disobedience, but in the potential of some of their positions (mortgage cramdowns, forgive student debt, cap bank fees and interest) to catch on with the mainstream.
Are you kidding?
Long before they get to "the last arrow in their quiver," they get to
"a decision has been made to postpone next November's Presidential Election due to the unprecidented number of voters who seem to have already made up their minds. A White House source, who did not want to be identified, stated that the 'period of voter re-balancing' would stay in place indefinitely.
'The Founding Fathers never intended for elections to take place in such a polarized climate', the source said, adding that a re-scheduled Presidential election would be considered 'once the Executive Branch had a chance to make its case to the public.'"
Ah, that is a pretty inflammatory quote.....do have a credible source for it??
No worries, if the republican establishment has their way they’ll run Romney. I’m sure most liberals could support him happily.
True in '08. But in '12 many of them are going to find they just can't summon the energy to make it down to the polling station.
That’s still too much enthusiasm. They should be standing out on window ledges.
At this point I would not put this option pass the Dem party. It is why I pray for Obama's safety every day, since the Bible tells us to pray for our leaders.
Whatever it is it is sure to rise once the dems start handing out cartons of cigarettes.
There's also the step where a terrorist event -- or the like -- is used as a causus belli to touch off a huge war in a distant country. Country rallies around "the President," who gets lots of air time to make speeches and look the part. By the time the casualities and other screw-ups start to mount up, we're looking at the election in the rear-view mirror.
We haven’t seen anyone faint due to the “ones’ presence lately now have we?
Even black folk aren’t feeling it for this marxist punk this go around.
Personally I’m hoping that big damn Canadian bus runs his sorry marxist ass over, backs up and runs him over again.
lol! Give it time. I expect to see that happen soon if for no other reason than the 'fainters' will be on the payroll.
I don't wish the man harm, I just wish him the embarrassment due for being the abject failure that he turned out to be.
California's recalled governor, Grey Davis, proved to be an abject failure; at the time of his recall only 15% of democRATs supported him. He has all but disappeared since being thrown out of office. My wish is to see the same fate for the Marxist Kenyan, for history to identify him as being one of if not the worst American president of the modern era.
