    2012 Presidential Election Preview: ABC News-Washington Post Poll - ABC News

    "For the first time since September, numerically more Americans now disapprove than approve of Obama's job performance, 50 percent vs. 47 percent; at 37 percent, the number who "strongly" disapprove is a point from the record, and exceeds strong approvers by 10 points. "

    "Forty-three percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say they're satisfied with the choice of candidates for the GOP nomination for president next year, compared with 65 percent satisfaction with the field at exactly this point four years ago."


    This might be a good sign, hopefully a year from now the numbers are about the same.

    Both parties SUCK.....One just sucks a little less. If there was ever a time that we needed a third party.....this is it.

    These polls on the POTUS satisfaction mean VERY little when gasoline prices are high. Pissed off people are going to be negative against the POTUS during these times.

    But the poll seems right on about the GOP "field" if you want to call it that. There are no officially announced candidates yet, but the ones who seem to be front runners aren't attractive at all to we independent voters.

    Yes, thank god, Americans are waking up. Now the question is what the hell are we going to do about it.


    We have one party that is on an ideological course that will destroy this country with Debt, the Other only pays lip service to cutting spending while in fact they are nothing but another version of the other party.

    If ever there was a time to vote 3rd party. That time is now.

    It's not just gas prices, it's the entire economy that affects the citizens view of Obama and the others running gov't.

    When the rest of America is cutting back, Washington (reps and dems) are going on a spending spree with our money. Just look at the last budget they all passed.

    The American general public are like new born babies, they will wake up when you rattle the crib, but give this some food and sing a pretty little tune soft light and they will fall right back to sleep.
    Me I never sleep.

    Better to wake up at some point than never, we'll see if this holds up.

    What happens when you vote 3rd party? Will things change? No I don't think so. How about we just vote for the person and forget about the party?

    They always go back to sleep
    20 years ago the birth certificate along with obama's questionble past would have kept anyone off the primary ballot much less win an election.

    Most Americans, unfortunately, really don't pay much attention to stuff like the budget.

    They DO pay attention to the price of gasoline, and of course blame the POTUS.

    As I said, these polls are meaningless right now.
