Americans see President Obama as the Farthest Candidate from Them Ideologically Including All Republicans
Barack Obama … the most out of touch candidate for American ideology …
According to a recent Gallup poll should cause yet more concern for President Barack Obama for the 2012 elections. Americans see Obama as the farthest candidate from them ideologically than any of the GOP primary candidates. Should this really come as a surprise as Barack Obama is the most liberal and polarizing President ever elected. Although many Americans are not not sure of some of the Republican candidates, they have had three years to figure out exactly what Obama’s ideology is. 57% consider Obama vet liberal/liberal, while 15% polled were smoking crack stating that Obama was very conservative/conservative. If Obama has not yet convinced America that he is not “very liberal” at this point, it is a lost cause. America knows exactly what Barack Obama is and stands for, there is no fooling the public like 2008.
What should further trouble Obama is that Independents consider Obama the farthest away from their ideology as well. As for Republicans, enough said. However, just how out of touch are Democrats with the main stream of society? They think Barack Obama is spot on with their ideology.
This is coupled with other polling data showing Obama loses a hypothetical match up with Mitt Romney 45% to 39%.
UPDATE I: Barack Obama’s job approval rating back down to 41% approval – 50% disapproval as per Gallup!
