CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012
By Michael O'Brien - 02/16/10 01:35 PM ET

52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012, according to a new poll.


44 percent of all Americans said they would vote to reelect the president in two and a half years, less than the slight majority who said they would prefer to elect someone else.

Obama faces a 44-52 deficit among both all Americans and registered voters, accordin' to a CNN/Opinion Research poll released Tuesday. Four percent had no opinion.

The reelection numbers are slightly more sour than Obama's approval ratings, which are basically tied. 49 percent of people told CNN that they approve of the way Obama is handlin' his job, while 50 percent disapprove.

Still, the 2012 election is still a long way's away, with this fall's midterm elections loomin' large. Republicans are hopin' to make inroads into Congress, while Democrats are hopin' to hold onto gains won in the 2006 and 2008 cycles.

Respondents to CNN were split at 46 percent as to whether they preferred a generic Republican or Democratic candidate in this fall's elections.

At least one retirin' lawmaker is confident Obama will sail to reelection, with Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) predictin' Monday the president would win "overwhelmingly" in 2012.

The CNN poll, conducted Feb. 12-15, has a three percent margin of error.

Now that Obama has shown his true progressive agenda, it's very obvious, it just isn't going over with the American people very well. He's a one termer for sure.

He didn't 'deserve' the first term.

What I found quite humorous was one headline that said CNN was SHOCKED that people felt Obama didn't deserve a 2nd term.

Where have they been? Maybe they should cover all the news and not just the positive spin the White House puts on things.

I'm not surprised. The novelty of him being the first Afro-American president has worn off and now he's gotta do some serious regrouping and figure out how to save his butt.

Nope it was Pres. Obama's fault that the US was in two undeclared wars and the economy was in the tank when he took office.

I would imagine it was Pres. Bush that has help the economy not to go into a depression and even show signs that it may be recovering though. That Pres. Bush is an amazing man let me tell you.

Well, it sure was not Obama. According to the paper last night He is taking credit for creating or saving 9 jobs localy. And it only cost $32 milion.

Just think if he would just throw in another $32 mil. we could save or create another 9 whole jobs. Oh yea that is what he wants to do.
