    no... readers digest readers didn't expect Truman to win.

    It's entirely possible that people are uncertain that doesn't mean they are voting Republican.

    Hint: the election is over a year away. That number will change, possibly dramatically.

    that is correct - there is still time to reach the other 47 percent of independents


    Strong opposition to Obama has grown markedly since the start of the year.

    ...In a mid-January Post-ABC survey, 28 percent strongly disapproved of the job Obama was doing. With the exception of a poll in early May that followed hard on the killing of Osama bin Laden , that number has steadily ticked upward, as the year has worn on and the economy has remained sluggish (at best)...

    I have to repeat this...If the GOP were as confident that obama is a loser as all the rightist conservatives on this forum...then why have the GOP elite been scrambling around the country begging other candidates to get into the race ?? ...Christie was not their first choice.
    All the polls with "POSSIBLE" matchups are nonesense...all the polls saying if the election were held today and Christie was gop nominee who would you vote for...are worthless....Obama against a generic republican today...worthless
    When the GOP chooses their ONE [1] nominee.....then the games begin and not until then.

    Ehh, we'll see. Answers change based on what's asked. The generic Republican canidate beats Obama but Perry or Romney lose or are tied.

    What is interesting is that even with his approval numbers, polls still have him beating every one but the liberal among republicans. Maybe people want something different than the "repeal the 20th century" platform conservatives are offering.

    His approval numbers are not that bad (amiright?). Are they not at just under 50%? He started at around 60%, so it is not like he had some huge drop. And the graph I saw on WSJ showed him trending upward.

    The last chart is his.

    it's because Obama is so beatable. this is the race that any minimally acceptable candidate can win; so everyone wants their favorite guy to run. meanwhile, we don't like Romney, and Perry screwed up.

    Re: Majority expects Obama to lose re-election

    Democrat and "lean Democrat" enthusiasm about voting in 2012 is the lowest it has been since 2002.



    he's not going to see the turnout he did in 2008. meanwhile, the GOP and Lean Republican enthusiasm is sitting at about 58%.

    meanwhile, his general approval is about the lowest it has ever been - currently at 41 / 52; and it's been dropping (with the exception of a post-Osama bounce) all year.

    56% say he's about the same or worse than George Bush.

    you're seeing the development of a strong "anybody but Obama" demographic in the independents who broke heavily for Obama in 2008. He will be held primarily responsible for the state of the economy, which by all accounts is not exactly about to take off. His much-vaunted speech-making-skills has thus far failed to convince the American people to change their opinion about anything.

    this guy is very beatable.
