More bad polling data for President Barack Obama and the 2012 elections. A recent Rasmussen poll states that 52% of likely US voters believe that Obama is more liberal than they are.What is most telling from this polling data is that 55% of Independents believe Obama is more liberal than they are. However, as referenced by Weasel Zippers, could some one provide the names of the 17% of individuals who call themselves Republicans that do not think Obama is more liberal?
Just 15% feel the president is politically more conservative than they are, the highest level measured to date. Twenty-six percent (26%) believe the president’s ideology is about the same as their own.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of Republicans think the president is more liberal than they are. Among Democrats, a plurality (49%) say they share a similar ideology to the president, 26% say he is more conservative than they are, and 20% say he is more liberal. A majority (55%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party believe the president is more liberal than they are.
