How Low Can He Go … Barack Obama Loses Ground in 2012 Presidential Reelection Bid


Barack Obama poll numbers are in free fall. Just 41% of those polled in a recent Pew Center Research poll stated that they wanted Obama reelected. Even worse for “the Chosen One” is that a meager 31% of Independents want him reelected. Overall, Independents have all but abandoned Obama in the job approval polls. It’s hard to believe that Obama won 52% of the Independent vote in the 2008 Presidential elections against John McCain. Without the Independent vote Obama has no chance and the numbers continue to trend downward.

The sizeable lead Barack Obama held over a generic Republican opponent in polls conducted earlier this year has vanished as his support among independent voters has fallen off.Currently, 41% of registered voters say they would like to see Barack Obama reelected, while 40% say they would prefer to see a Republican candidate win in 2012. In May, Obama held an 11-point lead.

This shift is driven by a steep drop-off in support for Obama among independents. The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted July 20-24 among 1,501 adults and 1,205 registered voters finds that just 31% of independent voters want to see Obama reelected, down from 42% in May and 40% in March. Where Obama held a slim 7-point edge among independent registered voters two months ago, a generic Republican holds an 8-point edge today.

CNN references multiple polls, all that show that Obama’s poll numbers are cratering. Wow, couldn’t happen to a more deserving one term President.

      and as the raising of the debt ceiling debate continues, Barack Hussein Obama is getting exactly what he wants. Another way to blame Republicans even though Republicans are the ONLY party that has put forth a bill (Cut, Cap and Balance) worthy of being passed by both Houses. But of course Harry Reid stamped his feet and now Boehner, instead of sticking to his guns, is trying to make a bill that Harry will like. The American people get SCREWED.

      Imagine 4 more years of the last 3. That’s what happens if Obama wins re-election. Oh, I know, the clouds could suddenly party and Obama could be the greatest President ever- but what in his past indicates that anything different than the present will continue? He needs to be gone, and it doesn’t matter if it is a sane Democrat like Clinton or a sane Republican like Perry or Romney, but Obama should be officially done as President.
