    Obama Gets 30% of Americans Certain to Support Re-Election in Economy Poll

    Americans are growing more dissatisfied with President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy and say it will be hard to vote to re-elect him without seeing significant progress over the next year and a half.
    By a margin of 61 percent to 37 percent, a Bloomberg National Poll conducted June 17-20 shows Americans say they believe that Obama will have had his chance to make the economy “substantially better” by the end of 2012.
    Only 30 percent of respondents said they are certain to vote for the president and 36 percent said they definitely won’t. Among likely independent voters, only 23 percent said they will back his re-election, while 36 percent said they definitely will look for another candidate.

    Hmmm....Not looking good for 'the One'... Aren't these numbers lower than Bush at the same mark?

    Well if they weren't, they would have...had the American people known how much he was lying about WMDs and yellow cake uranium.

    Not to worry...within the next 6 months he is going to appease the gay voters, will ignore the military leaders and announce troop pullbacks, will attack the wealthy and pull out several other little cheap tricks to show his base that the kid is still alright. He will win reelection. No doubt in my mind.

    Its about the same. You have about 1/3 of this country that are hardcore democrats, 1/3 that are hardcore Republican and 1/3 that are independents......this is pretty much the way that this country has always been, give or take a few percentage points. Doesn't concern me at all.....the POTUS election is almost always determined by independents.

    And what makes you confident that they will break in Obama's favor if current economic conditions continues? I'll bet that is what Carter thought also....

    He didn't say anything of that nature, unless you're referring to some other thread...

    Well, there's the possibility of Michele Bachmann being the Republican nominee. If that happens, the independents won't be able to run to him fast enough.

    The funny thing about polls like this is that people end up voting for the lesser evil. While they may say no now, a good number will end up voting for him anyway, unless another candidate is a transformative figure, as happened with every other president.

    I think this is a little bit of wishful thinking on your part. Obama only has a chance this economy starts rebounding in meaningful ways, like yesterday. And not the fake talking points that his sidekicks are throwing out there either...

    BTW...Get a load of this:

    Democrats call for new stimulus

    WASHINGTON, June 22 (Reuters) - Democratic leaders called on Wednesday for new spending and tax cuts to boost the sluggish U.S. economy, setting up a fresh hurdle for bipartisan efforts to head off a government debt default this summer.

    At the same time, a new report warned that the country could face a European-style debt crisis unless Washington cuts spending or raises taxes.

    WRAPUP 5-Democrats push for jobs package in debt deal | Reuters
    Isn't that great?!!!! More of something that didn't work, quadrupled the deficit.....Yeah!

    Of course, this could be wishful thinking on YOUR part.
