54 percent of voters say they would vote for someone else rather than re-electing Obama if the presidential election were held today. That’s up from 47 percent in a January poll and 31 percent in April 2009.
More damning:

Among Democrats, the overall number who would re-elect the president has dropped to 75 percent, down from 87 percent at the beginning of his term. And there is an even more significant decline in the number of Democrats who say they would “definitely” vote to re-elect Obama -- from 69 percent near the start of his term to 41 percent now.

aint surprising when you have a president who's world view is "its all americas fault" and with an entire philosophy that is fundementally against the very idea of the American republic.

Democrats really fcked up by not picking Hilary as candidate.

It's easy to say you'll vote for someone else. Who that someone else is is critical to the equation though. If it's the reanimated zombie of Bobby Kennedy the figure willing to do so increases significantly. If it's against Palin I'm betting it drops. Romney in 2014 would be interesting.

election is in 2012 btw.


the downfall of obama started with this, rather than his policies.
you can pretty much trace the tea party "anger" back to this event:

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WlqW6UCeaY]YouTube - Obama Bows to Saudi King[/ame]

he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. Rock solid Americans all know that their president bows to NOBODY. goes back to the 1776 revolt and all that. dont bow to monarchs..

that one event got people thinking - "if he doesnt know our traditions and history then what else doesnt he know?" and it goes from there.

Thanks for the tip.

2012 might be a bit too close but it didn't stop Obama....

BO is a one term President IMO

I think Sarah Palin just might do it.:D

Yeah EVERYONE knows the US President bows to NOBODY!




Of course, here on planet earth we know that bowing to a King is simply a matter of diplomatic protocol, and not a symbol that Obama hates America/is a Muslim/etc.

In fact it might suit obama to have congress in the hands of GOP (did bill clinton no harm) and then it depends on who GOP picks in 2012 they'll have 2 go so far 2 the right obama may sound like the voice of reason!!

It's clear that the Americans don't want Obama, but it's equally clear that the GOP haven't found someone to take him on and beat it.

No, Americans want a return to the buoyant economy they had before Bush came along.

If they believe in 2012 that the GOP candidate will give them that better than Obama, they will vote for him/ her.

Happened to Carter, happened to Bush Snr.

obama would wipe the floor with palin in a general election.

god knows there are a lot of stupid and ignorant people in the united states, but not enough of them vote in sufficient numbers to put someone like sarah palin into the oval office.

Palin isn't going to be the candidate. She won't get the Republican nomination, full stop, won't happen.

Well Cookie given that she a) has high approval ratings from Republicans, b) is consistently in the top two-three of every poll out there, c) will be competing in contests primarily decided by party activists who overwhelmingly favour her, I think you are once again talking nonsense.

Obama is in fact more popular at this point in his presidency than Clinton, Reagan, Carter or Ford. Both Bushes had wars that artificially boosted their popularity ratings. All of this in the midst of the deepest recession since the 30's. That is in fact, frigging amazing from a political standpoint.

Does this mean he's a lock for re-election? Of course not. It all depends on the economy which is a far greater determinant of US electoral behaviour than any other factor, largely because of the massive demerits of both presidential systems and FPTP voting systems. But that's another story.
