Fox News Poll: Just 29 Percent of Voters Think Obama Will Win Re-Election

29% of the American public are dumbasses. Actually that number is WAAAYY higher, but this 29% confirmed it. How can any person in this Country make the decision to vote for obama in 2012? He hasn't done one single positive thing since he took office, and it's not looking very good for accomplishing anything positive in the rest of his miserable term.

Spending is out of control, unemployment is through the roof and people are more skeptical and distrusting of the government than ever. That skeptical and distrusting stuff is for good reason. I don't ever remember an administration encouraging people to rat out their neighbors for not liking a government's legislation... Oh, wait, yes I do. The Iraqi government under saddam hussein did the same thing...

Barack Obama's second year as president is ending on a low note in the eyes of American voters, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.

The president continues to suffer from upside-down job ratings, and the number who thinks he will be re-elected is down significantly. A slim majority now says the country would be better off with someone else as president. Even so, more voters would still rather have Obama as president right now than George W. Bush.

These are just some of the findings from the latest Fox News national poll of registered voters.

Expectations for Obama's presidency have declined: 29 percent of voters expect Obama to rate as either “one of the country’s greatest” or as a “good” president. That’s down from 43 percent who felt that way a year ago -- and down dramatically from 62 percent who had similarly high expectations soon after he was elected (December 2008).

In addition, the number of Democrats who think Obama will be “one of the country’s greatest presidents” stands at 9 percent -- down from a high of 30 percent in 2008.

The new poll shows 33 percent think Obama’s presidency will rate as “average,” 19 percent say “below average,” and 15 percent say he will be seen as “one of the country’s worst” presidents.

About a third of voters (35 percent) think Obama deserves to be re-elected. A slim 53 percent majority says the country would be better off with someone else.

Democrats are alone in thinking Obama deserves another term (67 percent). Most Republicans (84 percent) and half of independents (50 percent) disagree. And one in five Democrats (20 percent) think the country would be better off with someone else as president.

Looking ahead to 2012, some 29 percent of voters predict Obama will be re-elected, down from 44 percent who thought so a year ago. Sixty-four percent now don’t think Obama will win another term, up from 46 percent in December 2009.

Overall, 40 percent of voters approve and 51 percent disapprove of the job Obama is doing. While that is close to his previous rating of 41 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval in late October, the new ratings are his lowest to date.

Obama’s approval rating among Democrats stands at 75 percent, and 70 percent among self-identified liberals -- both are record lows.

The Fox News Poll was conducted by Opinion Dynamics Corp. among 900 randomly chosen registered voters from December 15 - December 16. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points for the total sample.
