American Buyers Remorse: 43% of Voters Say they Would Reelect Barack Obama in 2012


Hope & Change: Barack Obama, here is some job approval polling you can believe in …

You’ve come a long way baby in such a short period of time. Barack Obama won the 2008 Obama_GatesPresidential election over John McCain by a 53% to 46% margin. Flash forward to less than one year into Obama’s presidency and in a recent poll only 43% stated that they would reelect The One in 2012. Obama’s actual job approval rating has also fallen to 49%.

It would appear that Obama’s policies and the handling of the economy, health care and Iran have come home to roost as his popularity no longer rules the day.

In what may be the ultimate job rating, 43 percent of voters say that they would vote to re-elect President Obama if the 2012 election were held today, down from 52 percent six months ago, from April 22-23, 2009.

Obama’s job approval rating comes in at 49 percent this week. That’s down just one percentage point from late September, but it marks a new low approval for the president — and the first time the Fox News poll has measured his approval below 50 percent.

Can you say voters buyers remorse! This is not only bad news for Obama, it’s bad news for all Democrat candidates running in elections in 2009 and the midterms in 2010.

The Corner brings up some interesting data from the polling numbers:

“Looking ahead to the 2010 Congressional election, for the first time this year the Republicans have the advantage: 42 percent of voters say they are more likely to back the Republicans to provide a check on President Obama’s power, while 38 percent say they would vote for the Democrat to help the president pass his policies.”

Hot Air points out that Obama’s approval numbers on the economy, Iran, Health care and Afghanistan are terrible. The key is the economy and the unemployment number. However, if Democrats ram through Obamacare with a nuclear option … the tidal wave against Obama and Democrats may be insurmountable to recover from.

      I wonder if 43% of these people are in for a Great Awakening?

      with their ethics coming into question over how a lot of advertising was paid for, their ratings should go down further.
      they are doing exactly what they condemned bush for.
      not to mention that the crats do everything behind closed doors. typical of corruption minded gangs. where’s the promised transparency barry ?

      after raping and pillaging our resources, obama promised that he would create 3 million jobs. hey barry, try about 30,383 jobs.
      and people fell for this lie hook, line, and sinker. the country is in pitiful shape. people are still losing jobs, businesses, homes, autos, and families have split up because of the destruction obama and his gang of theives have caused.and he lies every day that the recession is over. wake up people, it’s just the beginning.

      Did anyone see Obama’s visit to New Orleans yesterday? His address to the crowd reminded me of a high school pep rally! At one point he got really worked up and apparnetly went “off prompter” at which point he began stammering and stumbling over his words. What a buffoon we have put in office!

      after his pep rally the choclate city wasn’t real happy that he only spent 45 minutes there.
      to top it all off, the Mississippi coast suffered the worst damage from Katrina and the messiah didn’t even bother to go there.
      what an a**hole.

      Ok, let’s take a look at the reasons to re-elect this guy:

      Made even better by the fact that he was whisked off to San Francisco, CA for a fundraiser where he spent more than 45 minutes blaming everyone but himself for the economic situations in the US.

      It has become obvious with Obama that he is no leader. He is the Campaigner & Campaigner.

      He certainly looked comfortable in the socialist city of San Fran. Yucking it up in campaign mode while he have a record deficit, near 10% national unemployment and Generals is Afghanistan still waiting for a troop decision.

      Obama will now be a permanent weekend skit on SNL. Even the LEFT is livid with him knowing they were fooled and used.

      Even tho it seems that a goodly portion of the “Democrats”
      are far left (underscored by their complicity with all the
      overt Fascistic attempts by the bandleaders) I’m willing to
      bet that the rest of them are cowardly being swept along
      with the rotten tide. Just like in the ‘Unions’, it’s almost
      impossible to stand up and disagree with crime and coercion
      without fear of reprisal. The Union Organizer in Chief is
      doin his thing!

      Do you people read all your news from Fox News? I sure hope not.
      SM: No we get it from MCNBC.

      People get news from many outlets. To bad that you only seem to get it from an Obama approved network. You know we already went thru this under Nixon. Oh that’s right. He was a Republican and that makes it different. Did you hear that Obama was changing his name?

      Barack Millhouse Obama.

      But its different when its the Obamamessiah … he is so typical!
