45% for Obama, 49% Against â If Election Were Held Right Now - Rasmussen Reports
And if the Queen had a package she/he would be the King.
Besides, those numbers almost always change back when you go form the generic challenger to the specific.
As time goes on it's gonna be much worse for Obama, look at Virginia and the state of New Jersey today. New Jersey is 70% registered democrats yet the race is so close between Christy and Corzine, even though Obama has been out there campaigning for Corzine, that it's much too close to call. That's quite a turn around in his popularity already and we are only 11 months into his one and only term.
That's always the issue. There was a period back in 2003-2004 when Bush was losing by greater than the m.o.e. in the polls to "Not Bush." Yet Kerry was such an idiot he managed to screw that up.
The big issue for the GOP is who's going to run against Obama. A lot of the candidates that could actually beat Obama are in danger of being devoured alive by the rising Teabaggers movement inside the GOP, while the rest are too insane to switch any of the states the GOP lost on election night.
2012 is a long ways away, and a lot can change. If the economy is solid, Obama will be very difficult to beat.
IF the election were held today, Obama would win by default as the GOP has no one to put on their ticket. That is unless a real third party candidate showed up, but I have seen hide nor hair of him either.
It doesn't strike you as a bad sign that they would vote for someone else, just as long as its not Obama? It is just a hypothetical, so no danger present. I'd spend a great deal of time showing Rusmussen is wrong and ignoring the result for at least three years, if I were you.
No, it doesn't. What part of our Democracy, and the fickleness of our voting public do you not understand?
Its literally not an issue at this point. Election Day 2012 is still 3 years out, campaigning is at least a year and a half out. If the GOP decides to go the "Anyone but Obama" route, they should check out how that worked for the DNC back in 2004.
You'll have to offer something more than "I'm not that other guy" to win. Who on the GOP side has even that to offer?
Oh, just testing the denial waters. Thanks for playing Dr. Traveler and VaYank5150.
Fact is that Mr BO is slipping fast in most all catagories.
Overall, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.
The number who blame Obamas policies for the nations economic woes has grown to 45%, the highest level yet. However, 49% still blame George W. Bush.
Confidence in the War on Terror has fallen to the lowest level in three years. Just 34% now believe the U.S. and its allies are winning, down from 62% earlier in the year
Following release of the House health care plan by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 42% of voters now support the Congressional effort while 54% are opposed.
Fifteen percent (15%) say that Congress is doing a good or an excellent job while 53% rate Congressional performance as poor.
And that is all from Likely voters.
Goodbye in 2012 BO
