20% of Republicans leaning to Obama!
World Net Daily ^

Posted on 02/09/2012 2:35:06 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

...the 2012 election is looking more like a replay of 2008 than a do-over.

The latest WND/Wenzel Poll shows...one in five GOP voters leaning toward support of Obama in November....

Obama also has made tremendous inroads on enemy territory against each of the four Republicans, winning roughly 20 percent support among conservatives and even those who consider themselves to be very conservative.

WND is an interesting site...I wonder if these numbers are accurate. If they are accurate, this is stunningly bad news.

But not completely surprising - hopefully, this spurs movement toward a non-Romney candidate. Romney is clearly a loser candidate, arguably worse than McCain.

Maybe these folks figure Romney will be the nominee, so they might as well vote for Obama. What’s the difference?

Vote for the real deal instead of the pale imitation? Or bring on the apocalypse?

There is an argument to be made, and I’ve heard it here at FR, that 4 more years of a lame duck barky would be less bad than 4-8 years of mitt. I don’t subscribe to the argument particularly while mitt hasn’t yet won the GOP nomination. There are also some SoCons who will not vote for Newt.

If Obummer wins the nomination, it’ll basically guarantee that we’ll never have another President after him.

Not that he’ll take over everything. It’s just the country will basically collapse.

Mitt Romney represents the same death, only it’ll be more of a whimper than a bang.

White Guilt (and fear of the "race card" again) raises its ugly head again.

We won't have this if we have Herman Cain or Allen West on the ticket.

Either that, or people have not put down the bong while glued to the tube watching "Dancing with the Stars." I am sure there are some GOP voters who "toke", too. (Gary Johnson types).

interesting but flawed. Paul does better than the other three according to this poll and the fact that they say “very conservative” are “leaning” sorta makes it skewed somehow...we’d have to see the questions.

Romney is a socialist liberal useful idiot playing Republican conservative.

Obama is a Muslim loving traitor playing American liberal leftist.

To destroy America

you could attack militarily

OR

You could spend a few $Hundred Million buying an election.

Americans have been brainwashed to believe that the MSM tells us the truth, or close enough to it to figure out reality. Many on FREEREPUBLIC laugh at CNN but they have bought the lie that the MSM has shown Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim.

If you wanted to destroy the US:

1. Spend $Trillions on BS that destroys the US economically

2. Block oil production and make $Billions go overseas

3. Tie down our military with BS in other countries

4. Bring on GLOBAL WARMING and solar power, windmills because COAL must be shut down (The average American won't get it until their electric bills go up about $3000/per year).

5. Destroy morality with homosexuals in the military serving openly, force people to pay for abortion when they have moral objections against it. Let them know the government is supreme.

ETC.

History will show Obama was much more effective than his terrorist sponsors could ever have believed. We have a reality show host destroying the country that was once a superpower.

The vast majority of Americans don't even suspect Obama is a conspiracy because when you say that word, the functional IQ of Americans crashes toward Forest Gump.

The brainwashing of America has been that effective.

No REAL Republican could ever support ZERO.
It is either some one messing with the polls or a RAT claiming to be a Republican.
The 20% is believable FOR THE ENTIRE COUNTRY! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I knew when 2012 got here there would start to be stories about how everything is better and really everyone loves Obama. I don’t buy it for a second. The press is going to try and depress all Republicans. In 1980 they had stories of how Carter was going to beat Regan also. We have to get behind our nominee no matter who it is and beat Obama.

For the most part everyone I work with is a Republican and no one I know would vote for Obama. This is in an office of about 175 people.

I think the “poll” reflects newly registered Republicans via Mr. Soros and his crony organizations monetary support to have them active in the Republican Primaries to help bring a little chaos to the RP..

That would be my theory save for third party/write in... If all I have to choose from is Democrat Obama or Republican Obama then I might as well go for the Original instead of the cheap imitation. but since I don't have only two choices I will either write in Someone or pick a third party candidate if it is Mitt and Barry.

Two reasons why this should not be ignored as it may be accurate. First, the brawl that is our primary is turning a lot of people off. As we don’t have an inspirational candidate, it just looks like a lot of mud slinging.

Second, and more importantly, there was a margin of people who claim to be GOP who voted for Obama first time around. Voting against him this time will require for them to make an unconcious admission that they were wrong in 2008. I think that there are some who would rather vote for him again than admit to being wrong.

Wenzel Strategies said the poll also indicated:

The bottom line leaves only 38.5 percent of the respondents who will “definitely” vote for Obama again.

which means Obama is toast.

Personally wouldn’t put any creedence in this poll, but the topic of Conservatism comes up associated with Republican. The RINO faction that has taken the leadership positions, management positions in the GOP if you will have been redefining Conservatism for years to the point Romney calls himself a Conservative with a straight face.

My point is that people are confused, which I noticed years ago seems to be a tactic of the Left.

I don’t even know any Independents who say they will vote for 0bama! A lot of conservatives are pissed off that Romney is poised to be the shoe in to run against 0bama, thereby assuring an 0bama victory, so maybe people just want to be on the side of the winner, and they figure hey its the end of the world anyway!

DO NOT under-estimate the "White Guilt" vote....it's part of why the Race Card is constantly played.

If you won't vote for a "Black" POTUS, you aren't trendy and/or politically-correct, AND, you are RACIST.

I don't think it's bad news. There's no difference betwee romney or obama and this is obviously the response of people who won't consider him a viable alternative. I would have said the same thing. If he's still the candidate I may have to consider obama among other alternatives.

Blame me if you will, but I'd just as soon get "the end" over with so we can begin rebuilding from ashes.

First, the brawl that is our primary is turning a lot of people off

I know it has me quite turned off and starting to totally tune out.

In my mind when "they" start in on each other with the distorted and vicious lies it reminds of a ...well... I was going say a pit of vipers, but it is like I can here the growls and flesh being ripped off the candidates.

Even Fox News touts this as part of the "vetting" process and the other night I just looked at the TV and said...this behavior is not vetting, it is evil at work.

Define vetting: A thorough and diligent review of a prospective person or project prior to a hiring (investopedia). This is truly not what I see happening at this point. Thoroughness is given rise to fantastical distortions and that destroys the electorates ability to apply diligence to the decision.

I don't know if this poll is accurate, but if I am not the only one feeling like our primary process has become possessed with....(demons? insert word here)...then yes I can understand some folks latching onto the messianic and peaceful appearing 0bama.
