CBS Poll … 54% say Barack Obama Does Not Deserve Reelection


Wasn’t it President Barack Obama who said that if he does not turn the economy around, he will be a one term President? Seems that the most recent CBS poll and Americans agree.

With less than a year to go before the 2012 elections, CBS poll says that 54% of Americans think that Barack Obama deserves to be reelected. A paltry 41% believe Obama should.Making matters worse for Obama is that by a 55% to 37%, Independents say that Obama does not deserve to be reelected. Other data gleamed from this poll, Americans believe that Obama has divided America, not united it. A majority of Americans are against Obamacare and believe it will hurt them, rather than help. Also those polled believe that Obama should have made the economy his priority, not health care.

Watch the VIDEO above, it is pretty bad when even CNS begins their analysis of Obama with a comparison to Jimmy Carter. OUCH! From the CBS poll comes that 75% of Americans believe that the country is headed in the wrong direction and 66% say that they have no clear idea what Obama wants to accomplish if reelected. However, my question to both of these numbers is how can only 54% then say Obama should not get a second term? So we have Obamamessiah worshipers that think America is headed in the wrong direction and an incumbent president who hasn’t a clue, yet they would still vote for him. Really? At what point are Democrats going to put country ahead of party?

Full poll results can been read HERE.

Less than one year out from Election Day 2012, voters remain overwhelmingly pessimistic about the economy, and their concerns are taking a toll on President Obama’s re-election chances. Just 41 percent of Americans think Mr. Obama has performed his job well enough to be elected to a second term, whereas 54 percent don’t think so.

The president’s overall approval rating remains in the mid-40′s, according to a CBS News poll – lower than the approval ratings of Mr. Obama’s four presidential predecessors at this point in their first terms. Mr. Obama’s approval rating is dragged down by his poor marks for his handling of the economy – which, at 33 percent, is the lowest rating of his presidency in CBS News polls.

Other data from the CBS Poll:

Has President Obama Made Real Progress Fixing the Economy?

Total      Reps      Dems      Inds

Yes      28%        9%      52%          23%
No       68           89       42              72

Moreover, in 2010 37% blamed GWB for the economy, only 5% blamed Obama. In June of 2011, 16% blamed GWB and 8% blamed Obama. Presently, 22% blame Bush and Obama’s poll numbers have risen to 12%. The result of this is the closer we get to election, the more Americans will blame Obama for the economy. He will have had 4 years to have done something. Frankly, his policies have failed and his attention was diverted to his socialist agenda, not getting people back to work.

Barack Obama continues to have an approval rating in the low to mid 40′s, while he receives even worse polling numbers on how he has handled the economy. Needless to say, the economy is the #1 issue for Americans. What has Obama’s answer been to his poor polling date, increase the rhetoric of class warfare of course. However, as stated at Hot Air, this course of action has appeared to accelerate his declining approval rating rather than help.

It is time for “We the People” to take back America and head it in the right direction. When 75% of Americans say that we are headed in the wrong direction, its time to clean house and have an election with a clear mandate to government what is wanted.
