    Thumbs up Only 44% say they would vote Obama in 2012

    Like i said in fall of 2008; this guy is the new Jimmy Carter.


    52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012, according to a new poll.

    44 percent of all Americans said they would vote to reelect the president in two and a half years, less than the slight majority who said they would prefer to elect someone else.



    I would like to point out that even this, this might be slightly tilted pro obama; given that their generic question shows a dead 49-49 heat between a republican and democrat for a member of congress; while most other polls are showing a 5+ point lead.

    Just because only 44% of Americans say they would vote for Obama doesn't mean 56% of Americans would vote for whoever the GOP nominates.

    no, specifically 52% say he doesn't deserve a second term; which is a hard hill for Obama to climb. just like Carter in 1980; all the Republican Candidate has to do at that point is prove that they are acceptable and they can win the presidency the same way Obama won the Nobel Peace prize: by not being their predecessor.

    Memories of G.W.B. are still fresh in the minds of people, so it totally depends on who the GOP chooses to run against Obama. If the GOP screws up and goes with someone too far to the right, then it'll be iffy.

    Personally, I'm of the opinion that most of the American people would choose "none of the above" and try to see how our country gets along without a President for a term or two.

    I am of the opinion a lot can change in two years, so maybe we should wait a little longer before anyone starts bragging about a win.

    CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012

    CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012
    By Michael O'Brien - 02/16/10 01:35 PM ET

    52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012, according to a new poll.


    44 percent of all Americans said they would vote to reelect the president in two and a half years, less than the slight majority who said they would prefer to elect someone else.

    Obama faces a 44-52 deficit among both all Americans and registered voters, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll released Tuesday. Four percent had no opinion.

    Will he pull an LBJ or be forced to not run by his own party?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Well you know that CNN is always correct.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    This November will be a clear indicator.

    I agree, but a lot of things can happen before the Presidential elections. President Obama could start rocking or the GOP could put up another terrible candidate.

    Plus I want to know how many of those polled would actually vote in the election anyways.

    44% is still enough to win an election - so that doesn't make me feel good.
