Poll: Americans, 2-1, Fear Obama's Reelection

Poll: Americans, 2-1, Fear Obama's Reelection
January 9, 2012

When it comes to how Americans view President Obama going into the new year, there appears to be very little spirit of Auld Lang Syne. Instead, according to the new Washington Whispers poll, many voters aren't forgetting what they dislike about Obama and want him out office.

In our New Year's poll, when asked what news event they fear most about 2012, Americans by a margin of two-to-one said Obama's reelection. Only 16 percent said they fear the Democrat won't win a second term, while 33 percent said they fear four more years. [Check out the top political events of 2011]

Next to Obama's reelection, 31 percent of Americans said they feared higher taxes, which may be proof that the president's focus on the payroll tax cut has hit paydirt.

As Obama tries to grow the economy with debt (again), surprised why people are fearful?

Misleading headline. Roughly 1/3rd fear Obama’s re-election but roughly 1/6th fear he won’t.

What blather. The "payroll tax cut" is insignificant -- the modern version of "let them eat cake."

The only candidate who can beat Obama is Dr. Paul.

Mittens is Obama lite
Newt has too much baggage
Santorum is a lightweight

Who, I wonder, would Paul’s people coalesce around (or run to) if he were suddenly unavailable..

The vibe I get from the Paul people I run into is that probably 75% of them don’t actually vote.

I suppose if Paul wasn't around they would return to the cheek pouches of squirrels.

The Paultards are largely motivated by their deranged hate for conservatives—just like their Soros led allies of the Left.

Ron Paul is to the Republicans as Zell Miller was to the Democrats.

Fear doesn't begin to describe it. How about scared to death our Sacred Republic is going to be a full bore communist tyranny if Obama is reelected. Keep in mind your kids, grandkids and 'generations yet unborn' and see you on November 6, 2012!

Still mulling whether I'm going to camp out the night before at the local polling place. . . If people aren't scared to death of Obama, they're not reading. . .

Be the Paul Revere in your family and neighborhood!

That is my favorite picture depicting what a dork Barack is and how sour-pussed his wife always is. Can you just imagine what she must be saying to him? You know she always likes to ridicule him, as she does when interviewed. I have always believed that these two have a very unhappy marriage but have been forced to pretend differently for the sake of “the party” - whichever party they really support.

If 2-1 fear Obama’s re-election and this poll is accurate, then it has to follow that by a close to 2-1 margin they will not vote for him.

In which case, the 2012 election should be a landslide against Obama.

But is that a valid conclusion to make?
