Obama Faces Tough Fight for 2012

President Barack Obama is in for a tough re-election campaign in 2012, according to the results of a new Newsmax online poll.

The survey of more than 90,000 respondents found that only 27 percent plan to vote to re-elect the president, while 69 percent will vote for another candidate.

The Newsmax poll is updated continuously, and you still can vote in this poll — Click Here Now.

The poll reflects widespread dissatisfaction with Obama’s policies.

Respondents strongly oppose the plan the president favors to give amnesty to illegal aliens.

They believe even more strongly that Congress should restore the $500 billion that Obama’s healthcare reform plan removes from Medicare, and they believe overwhelmingly that the reform plan should be repealed.

Do you agree with President Obama’s plan to give amnesty to illegals and cut Medicare? You can vote by Clicking Here Now.

The nation’s economic condition is the issue that most concerns Americans, according to the Newsmax poll.

A majority of respondents say that cutting spending should be Congress’s top priority this year, followed by paying down the national debt.

Asked “What do you believe Congress’s top priority should be in 2011?” poll voters offered the following results:
1) Cutting spending: 53 percent
2) Cutting taxes: 7 percent
3) Paying down the national debt: 28 percent
4) Improving the nation’s security: 10 percent

Even if were not online, the hilariously slanted side questions make the poll garbage.

Here's a classic clip that is often relevant in every election:

Poor Roy.

Well, money wise,OK, the economy does have our income down. Nice to see your concern.

But other than that, your point is ?

I don't seem to recall saying the article was correct?

Just a simple cut, copy & paste for the Liberals to see that their Dear Leader could be throwing #'s around like 80% of Americans believe in him & his plan that he hasn't came up with.

Again, your point is what ? Poor, Oh yeah,Thanks for the concern about our income that has been greatly affected since the winter of 2008 to present day. :hmmm:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A poll released on Wednesday carried warning signs for President Barack Obama's re-election chances in 2012.

The Public Policy Polling survey found that for the first time since July, Obama does not lead Republican front-runner Mitt Romney in the group's monthly national poll on the 2012 election race. Romney has pulled into a tie with Obama at 45 percent.

Obama's overall approval rating was at 46 percent, with 48 percent of voters disapproving of him, and this is in line with other recent surveys.

But independents were split against Obama 49 percent to 44 percent, and the president will need independent voters to help carry him to victory in November 2012.

Independents broke solidly for Obama in his 2008 election but helped Republicans win the U.S. House of Representatives in last November's congressional elections.

Obama's approval rating has been in the doldrums because of the 9.2 percent U.S. jobless rate and prolonged wrangling with Congress over raising the U.S. debt ceiling.

The polling organization said on its website that Obama's position appeared worse than meets the eye.

"There's a very good chance Barack Obama would lose if he had to stand for re-election today," said Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling. "This is his worst poll standing in a long time and he really needs the economy to start turning around."

The pollsters said if there is a silver lining for Obama it is that he trailed Romney in the same poll last July and then regained the lead for each of the next 11 months.

Most political analysts believe Obama will be in a strong position for re-election given the relatively weak Republican field, a huge financial advantage in campaign contributions and the potential for an economic recovery.

An NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll released this week found that Obama led Romney 48 percent to 41 percent but when judged against a generic Republican presidential candidate the margin was tighter at 42 percent to 39 percent.

Separately, the Gallup polling organization's three-day rolling average of its daily poll put Obama's job approval at 42 percent with 48 percent disapproving.

In unexpected news, Reuters is reporting that, once again, jobless claims unexpectedly rose more than what was expected.

Economists described this unexpected news as "unexpected".

This is a new game Roy is playing.

Roy posts an article and then acts like he didn't agree with it.

Don't worry about his own words in the subject header.

Oh I get it, you,being an Obot do not agree that their is growing trend in Americans that disagree with the POTUS and his Democratic allies?

Got it.

I posted the article, it was debunked.

I found another article, is it false too ? Please bring you wisdom and knowledge to the table on this. Please explain how all of this is propaganda to the American people, just as the Democrats, Liberals and the Liberal press claim it is.

As for Obama, it's common knowledge I didn't like his policies before being elected POTUS, where you on this one ?

It's common knowledge I don't like his policies now, again where are you at on this one ?

As for the OP and the other article, where did I say I agreed with every bit of it?

Awaiting your response, I know you really like these type of games.

FTR, please post or report a time when you have claimed to your own idiocy?

Me personally, I would say , yes, he has a lot of work to do to over come that. Plus, financially, what has he done to help the country? Except spend a lot of money that didn't grow the economy, it grew the debt up.

Can he overcome the low #'s according to these polls, sure. But a lot of work ahead.

Can he lose the election according to the Liberal polls? Sure, if it the country continues to be stagnate.

No worries Roy. I will give you a pass. This has been another bad thread for you.

- You had a link that supported your rigid and partisan view point.

- Posted it...agreed with it in the subject heading.

- It got exposed for a fraud.

- You acted liked you just threw it out there...like you didn't agree with it...

- Then you backed off of that because that is obviously stupid.

- And then you thought you were asking me hard hitting questions like what my take is on your opinions.


Maybe it has been a long week. Take a nap or something.

Blah, I had no intent when I put it up there. Many Liberals on here were singing happy tunes that Obama would get re-elected in 2012. Many R's and I's, etc. were claiming he would not or he would have a serious challenger.

The article stated this .....Obama Faces Tough Fight for 2012.

So I went along with that as Not So Fast!, according to the article. I never stated he would or he would not.

As for will he, it's very possible, the R's don't have a serious candidate yet. It's possible Obo could win by default.

I'm glad you really know me better than anybody on this BB, even myself. Please tell me what I will do next.
