HOW ABOUT A SECOND TERM? MORE THAN HALF SAY “NO, THANKS”
Posted by Andrew Roman on February 17, 2010
Blame this one on George W. Bush, if you like – although in doing so, you’d almost be admitting you miss him. You can make the claim that Barack Obama is still wet behind the ears and needs more time to make the job his, but he’s more than a quarter of the way through his term, so the credibility in such a statement is minimal. You can point fingers at the vast right-wing, anti-Obama media complex, but then I’d ask you what your hallucinogen of choice is.
The fact is, the word “disastrous” is far too mild, and comparisons to Jimmy Carter are almost insulting to Carter.
I don’t think anyone could have predicted such a turnaround in so short a time.
According to a CNN/Opinion Research Poll, more than half of all Americans – just thirteen months after the dawn of the Messianic Age – say they would not vote to give Barack Obama a second term.
The word “ouch” comes to mind.
Michael O’Brien of The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room writes:
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.
It should be noted that retiring Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd still believes that President Obama will be re-elected overwhelmingly in 2012.
He also said that even if he were absolutely certain he could win re-election himself, he would not run again.
Anyone who believes that, please stand on your head.
