OH, NO! Not That!!!

A new poll by CNN and ORC International finds that 27 percent of Democrats would like to see their party nominate a candidate other than Barack Obama for president in 2012.

"In response to the question, "Do you think the Democratic party should renominate Barack Obama as the party's candidate for president in 2012, or do you think the Democratic party should nominate a different candidate for president in 2012?" -- 72 percent said they wanted to see Obama renominated. But 27 percent, slightly more than one in every four, said they wanted to see Democrats nominate a different candidate. One percent had no opinion.

The poll was taken August 24-25. In a survey taken in early August, 28 percent of Democrats said they wanted a different candidate. Polls taken in July and before showed Obama in a stronger position, with no more than 22 percent saying they preferred a different candidate. The current poll is based on interviews with 463 Democrats and has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.

This is the worst news for those of us who want to run against this empty suit...no, this chalk outline!


Could the Dems actually pull a Franklin Pierce, and not nominate this guy???

And...run a real candidate who might ......(gasp!) ....win???

We might have to run someone other than Casey Anthony or Abdelbaset Mohmed Ali al-Megrahi!

The horror.....the horror......

The assertion that primary challenges improve a party's chance of retaining the White House run counter to experience. Reagan's run against Ford, Ted Kennedy's against Carter, and Buchanan's against George H W Bush all merely weakened their party's nominee.

Suggesting that a primary challenge against Obama could help Democrats is particularly implausible, since Obama's personal approval rating runs well ahead of that of other Democrats. You can disagree with Obama's policies, but I have yet to see a plausible case made against his political viability relative to a Democratic challenger.

UPDATE: A further bit of context-- before Kennedy challenged Carter he was out-polling him by two to one. In contrast, 27% support for any challenger to Obama is quite anemic.

Worse than 39%? You might need a new poll.

Of course, that is he obvious scenario...but Hil's attachment to the Obama administration might inveigh against it.

No...what if a 'dark horse' (don't go for the obvious here,) seemingly 'reasonable' Democrat were to be thrust forth....

Could be a real race (same note for 'race').

Agree.
And, of course, the loss of the black constituency would doom the Democrats for the foreseeable....

...but what if the eloquent one sees the same handwriting on the wall and uses the LBJ gambit....

He could deny the rest of us the smirk I'm practicing....

LOL! You people are terrified of Obama.

Instead of obsessing about him, why not find a credible Republican candidate?

Oh, right, there aren't any.
