BUYER’S REMORSE: 71% of Democrats Regret Voting for His Reelection
Gateway Pundit ^ | February 18, 2014 | Jim Hoft

Tools.

One year into his second term and already 71% of DEMOCRATS regret voting for this Keynesian wreck.

Washington Examiner reported:

Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama’s reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll.

Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago.

The poll asked those who voted for Obama’s reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?”

— Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no.

— 80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes.

— 84 percent of women said yes, and just 61 percent of men agreed.

— 55 percent of Democrats said yes, as did 71 percent of independents.

Maybe listen to us next time. We tried to tell you. We may not like his politics, but he’s not just a leftist — he’s a liar. He’s out to screw you, too.

“he’s not just a leftist — he’s a liar. He’s out to screw you, too.”

Careful what you say. He has phone, a pen, and a drone. He’s not afraid to use them.

Great.

Would’ve been nice if these dumbasses had woken up two years ago instead of now.

There was still plenty of evidence back then that Obama was a disaster, but nobody wanted to look, they were too busy in a love-swoon over the Mocha Messiah.

And now America is worse off because of it.

It looks like this poll is being misinterpreted. The 71% is from the 10% who said they would not vote for him again, or a mere 7% of the sample.

Still significant, but not the sea-change we are looking for.

“Benghazi Cankles”
That name is a hoot and so fitting for the bag that just won’t go away.
If she does run I hope she gets lots of botox and fillers in her face so it becomes misshapen like John Kerry’s did and she looks like a fool. At least if she wins I will be able to laugh at her when her face will be splashed on the telly day in and day out just like the Black Avengers face is.

True, it doesn’t say 71% of DEMOCRATS regret his re-election, it says 71% of Obama voters overall.

The number of DEMOCRATS who said they regret his election was at 55%. Quite frankly though, I’m surprised they got a majority of RATs to say that, given how many of them seem to be completely brain dead and blindly support him no matter what.

I just keep hoping someone, anyone is digging or, has already dug, and is waiting to spring the goods on that crone, when the time is right. McPIAPS will be far worse than Obinga.

Sorry folks, but this is beyond misleading - it's just completely in error.

I thought these stats were too good to be true, so followed the Gateway Pundit article to the Washington Examiner source that it cited. Here's the reality (emphasis added):

"Given a chance to do it all over again, only 79 percent of those who voted for President Obama would vote for him again and 71 percent of Obama voters now inclined to vote for somebody else “regret” their vote to reelect the president, according to a new poll."

So in other words, of the 21% of the Obama voters who would not vote for him again, 71% of THOSE regret voting for him last time. BIG difference.

I agree. If you look at Rasmussen, Obama has changed very little. There is always going to be a 40% block of brain dead, and pro Socialist/Marxist voters, and that figure will grow, with the immigrants and blacks reproducing like rabbits.
I am sorry to be so pessimistic, but America is NOT going to return to the good old days. It will get only worse.
I am dying for someone on here to say and explain otherwise.

For the record, we are only in agreement over the inaccuracy of the Gateway article. As for your opinion about the direction of the country - who knows - but I do not approve of the statements you made related to how certain groups “breeding like rabbits” would seal that fate.

More stubborn than stupid, at this point. Nobody believes Obama, anymore. But many still refuse to admit that the hated opponents of Obama were right.

Again that number 22-25% shows up, this is the percentage of hardcore leftists in America, then you have the dead vote which accounts for 15-20% of the democrat vote, oh I don’t mean followers of the Grateful Dead.

As far as the polls go, I think he gets 30% just for being listed.

Thank you so much for doing the homework there. My experience with liberals is they will vote that way even if the candidate is promising to castrate them. (So long as somebody else is paying for it.)

I would imagine that it is because he is too conservative for the leftist wackos. They are pissed that he didn’t fight for single payer and various other things. They want him more to the left. They think he is a moderate at best. These people are incredibly stupid.

But those same dingbats will vote for any candidate with D that will continue obamas policies-—mainly the “I have a pen and phone” policy that he has now set a precedent for.

We knew newt would’ve been better, ditto Santorum, and anyone else up there but Romney destroyed all of them in every way he could using enormous stashes of cash, blitzing the airwaves in necessary regions

We knew he would get up there and treat Obama much differently We knew he would either throw it, out of cowardice, or through following some larger plan, but we knew he would not have been much better, running the country like a corporation he either wanted to fail or not depending on what ever whim he and his handlers chose

At the end of this article, the voters stil say they would’ve chosen not to vote for mitt by 79%.

Nothing’s changed

The real story would be to ask conservatives who didnt vote Romney. I’ll bet they don’t regret it The tell that thick headed rove

Let him know they don’t and that they’ll have a lot of company after watching Ryan screw with our war veterans

100 percent of Hispanics said yes

100%, huh? That has the taint of "bogus" written all over it... but setting that aside, Hispanics, like other "remorseful buyers" wanted more delivered to them than they got. They wanted full amnesty, citizenship and voting rights to be in place for their border-jumping brethren by now.

This is about voters' annoyance with not getting what they demanded in 2008 and 2012, not a rightward ideological shift. Keep in mind, by that same poll, 79% said they'd still vote for Obama over Romney (who garners 10%).

Mitt was a very good governor, trust me. We had 12 straight years of Republican incompetents in this bluest of blue states, Romney was an exception. A fine man, a good administrator. He’s not Ted Cruz or Ronald Reagan, but he stands head and shoulders above other politicians. And his heart is on the side of America and working people.

So what? We are stuck with their asinine choice for three more years. They ought to be barred from voting in the next election because chances are excellent they’ll be voting for Hillary, a smarter Marxist than the current one.

The results beg the question: Where have the 29% that voted “No” or “Not sure” been the last 135 years - Oh, that’s right, it’s only been 5 years (seems like a lot longer).

So they thought we didn’t think they were stupid enough in 2008, so they voted for him again in 2012 to prove it to the nation again. What a bunch of dumbasses.

80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes.

There's the nugget. Didn't Barack get over 90 percent of the black vote? Nearly four in ten blacks say they regret voting for him? If that is anything approaching a scientific sample size, that's news.

Thanks for clearing that up.

However, if that 21% loss carries over to Cankles or some other similar successor, it would be more than enough to sink the Dems.

I believe they had to steal, fabricate, or switch 20-25 Million votes to get Obie-dun in the lead in 2012. They would need to steal, fabricate, or switch an additional 10 Million votes if that 21% stayed home.

Perhaps the best we can hope for about 14% of the Obama voters to stay home in 2016 (the 71% of the 21% who both would not vote for Obama again AND now regret voting for him last time).

It gets worse. So first we have the fact that the 71% in question is not 71% of all Obama voters, but only a percentage of those who did NOT answer "yes" when asked if they would vote for him again (79% said "yes", 21% did not). But that 21% also breaks down into two group - 11% who clearly said "no", and 10% who said "not sure".

I think we can assume that most, if not all, of the 71% who also said that they now regret voting for Obama last time come from that 11%, and that the other 10% are going to show up and vote for the Democrat in 2016.

So our best hope is that 71% of the 11% are so disgusted that they will either vote for some third party candidate or just stay home in 2017.

So basically the group that we're talking about is roughly 7% of all Obama voters.
