Most Americans Think Barack Obama Will Not be Reelected in 2012


The come back kid, really? A majority of registered voters say “Just say No” to BO in 2012. According to a recent CNN poll, a majority of Americans stated that Barack Obama will not be reelected in 2012.

In a new CNN poll, 26% of registered voters say they will definitely vote for Obama and 37% say they won’t. If you add in those leaning one way or the other, it turns out that 47% will probably or definitely vote for Obama and 51% probably or definitely won’t.

Should Obama be concerned about this poll almost 2 years out from the election? Yes, the problem still seems to be with convincing “Independents”. As reported at Hot Line On Call, “Independent voters would vote against Obama by a 44 percent to 53 percent margin.”

And more voters say, at the moment, they will vote against Obama. Fully 51 percent say they definitely or probably will not vote for Obama, while 47 percent say they’re predisposed to vote for him. Independent voters would vote against Obama by a 44 percent to 53 percent margin, while he would win moderates by a much larger 55 percent to 45 percent margin.

Hmm … Ed Rollins asks whether Obama can be beaten in 2012, the answer is yes. In order for Obama to play to the middle, he will have to upset his liberal base. In order for Obama to potray himself of a phoney middle of the roader, he will have to completely change everything that he has done during his first two years of office. Who really sees that happening?

The safest bet is that Obama will be the Democratic nominee. You can go to the bank on that one. And my counsel is to stay away from betting this far in advance on the Republican side. Unless you’re privy to divine inspiration, the best thing to do is to watch the process evolve.

One thing that you should know though is there are some extremely competent candidates who I believe will run — and that whoever wins the GOP nomination will be a formidable opponent for Obama.

The political landscape of 2012 is nothing like the one that ushered Obama into office in 2008. Barack Obama now has a record that he must defend, not slogans like “Hope & Change”. His signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, is highly unpopular and faces an ultimate court challenge in the SCOTUS.  Then there is the economy. In the wake of the 2010 midterm elections, it is obvious that a majority of Americans are against Obama’s and Democrat policies. The loss of US Reps, US Senators, Governors and state legislatures in the 2010 shellacking will greatly affect Obama’s reelection bid.

Popularity only goes so far, an unpopular opinion on policy during difficult times trumps it every time. Pundits can make a fluffy puff piece as to why Obama could win, but just look at the shift in the electoral college and where Obama will get wins in 2012 as compared to 2008?

The shift in the political environment where the GOP swept elections in 2010 in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virgina, North Carolina, Indiana and Florida. All states that Barack Obama carried in the 2008 Presidental election. How does Obama win in 2012?

      Why would anybody want to re-elect him…the same people that voted for his a~~ in the first place…he has done monumental damage to this country….because he not about America…he’s about Rev Wright and his Muslim belief…he is lack of everything that requires someone to the President of our country. He defies our constitution and everything it stands for. We need to get rid of his a~~. Go back to Kenya and live with your ancestors, your grandmother that said you were born there..!!!!!!!!!!!

      @ Brie don’t bother talking cause ur a d[edit]. Go do some research before you comment he’s not doing it for any beliefs he’s doing his best to help clean up the mess bush has left and trying to fix the economy so S[edit]!
      SM: Are you on the LEFT really that ignorant that you cant see that the situation is worse in the US since Obama has been in office? really?

      Maybe instead of telling other to be quiet, you need to educate yourself. More people are unemployed, more people are on food stamps, there is more debt and no jobs. This president has destroyed jobs with his over-regulation of industries. Obamacare will bankrupt America and ain’t it interesting that so many have asked for waivers.

      Obama is a disaster and will be thrown out of office in 2012. Even Dems have buyers remorse and wish they had nominated Hillary Clinton. Obama and Democrats will lose in 2012, its just a matter of how ugly it will get.

      Obama will not be elected for the second time because of his strong Muslim faith.He respects the Saudi King more than the Queen of England.

      If Obama declares publicly Islam is wrong, Muhammad is a false prophet, the Sharia law is the law of the devil, and Quran is not a holy book, then I will vote for him for the socond time.

      Barack Obama has hurt the feelings of many American Christians when he ridiculed The Sermons of Jesus Christ on the Mount, the Book of Leviticus, and the Book of Deuteronomy. He further has abused his power by hiring hundreds of Jihadist Muslims in various offices. Mostly he has damaged his reelection chance when he publicly declared that America is no longer a Christian nation. I just want to see his downfall very soon!
