Obama remorse

Poll: 71% of Obama voters, 55% Democrats 'regret' voting for his re-election
BY PAUL BEDARD | FEBRUARY 18, 2014 AT 10:40 AM

Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama's reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll.

Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago.

The poll asked those who voted for Obama's reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?”

— Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no.

— 80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes.

— 84 percent of women said yes, and just 61 percent of men agreed.

— 55 percent of Democrats said yes, as did 71 percent of independents.

Still, given the choice of Obama versus Romney, Obama supporters said they would stick with their guy, 79 percent to 10 percent for Romney.

But his voters seem to have moved on and are ready for the next election, giving Obama very early lame duck status before the midterm elections. The poll, for example, found that Hillary Clinton has a higher favorability rating than the president. While Obama is underwater in his ratings, Clinton is buoyed by a 50-percent favorable to 43-percent unfavorable rating, with a sizable 28 percent rating her “very favorable.”

As for Romney, his favorable ratings have dropped, but he would edge Obama by about three million votes, probably because Americans are not wowed by Obama's second term performance, not because they like Romney more.

Said the poll: “In YouGov research conducted from February 6th-7th, we went about it in a slightly different way, asking people who voted for Mitt Romney or Barack Obama whether they would do it again. We found an ostensibly similar picture: 90 percent of people who voted for Romney would do it again, compared to only 79 percent of Obama voters who would.

“Clearly Romney fares better, although he had fewer voters to begin with. As a proportion of the voters each of them actually received in 2012 (66 million for Obama and 61 million for Romney), the GOP candidate ends up with 55 million votes retained to Obama’s 52 million. Not exactly a wipeout. It’s also unclear for any poll that hypothetically revisits 2012 how much it says about renewed hope for Mitt Romney — who has notably been liberated from the scrutiny of a presidential campaign Â*— rather than about dissatisfaction with an incumbent president who has spent the last year defending his administration over leaks, scandals and Obamacare roll-outs.”

The fringe didn't pick McCain and Romney. But the fringe did force them to act crazy in the primaries which then made them look like fools in the general election.

Ever vote outside your party for prominent government position?

Like I've mentioned before, I voted for Janet Napolitano here in AZ...twice. She was actually a decent governor (actually cared about border enforcement for example) and was very moderate until she became a shill for Obama...which evidently paid off for her.

Sorry, not a boot licker. So who's the conservative you've voted for that most of us have ever heard of?

I don't regret Obama at all. If they had given me an alternative and I would have considered it.

Will it make him any less ridiculous if he says he voted for GWBush in 2000 or Kit Bond in 1998?

The right has had their share of turds but the left rolled out such stellar nominees they lost to dubya twice. I think Romney might have won had he been able to articulate his economic policy.

In your entire life there's never been an election where a Republican candidate was worth voting for? Yeah, you're not a boot licker.

I think maybe a county water commissioner once who seemed decent, but I was afraid he would outlaw abortion.

I'm glad you have a sense of humor as to your lack of objectivity.

I've voted about 50 / 50% for Republican presidents over the years. Those years have come to an end with the hard right turn the Rs have taken since 2000. If they dont ease up on the social issues I'm gone for good.
