60% of Americans Disapprove of Obama’s Handing of the Economy … 52% Say Obama Should be Voted Out of Office
More bad polling data for President Barack Obama, less than one year old from the 2012 elections.
With less than a year to go before the 2012 elections, Barack Obama finds himself with new polling lows. Sixty percent of Americans disapprove of the way in which Obama has handled the economy, while only 39% approve. To make matters worse for Obama, 52% state that he should be voted out of office. Also, Obama overall job approval rating is at an all-time low of 44%. These are hardly polling numbers that an incumbent would want heading into an election season.
For the first time, the poll found that a majority of adults, 52 percent, said Obama should be voted out of office while 43 percent said he deserves a second term. The numbers represent a clear reversal since last May, when 53 percent said Obama should be re-elected while 43 percent said he didn’t deserve four more years.
Obama’s overall job approval stands at a new low: 44 percent approve while 54 percent disapprove. The president’s standing among independents is worse: 38 percent approve while 59 percent disapprove. Among Democrats, the president holds steady with an approval rating of 78 percent while only 12 percent of Republicans approve of the job he’s doing.
The Left, their pundits and the liberal MSM can cover for Obama all they want, it is hard to imagine that when 75% of the American people think that the country is headed in the wrong direction and poll after poll have a majority of Americans stating Obama does not deserve reelection, Obama has little chance of reelection.
