Polls Show That If Election Were Held Today… Barack Obama Would Lose in a Landslide

Enough is Enough.

After destroying the economy, squandering the country’s wealth and bowing to foreign tyrants, America has had enough. The latest polls show that if the election were held today Barack Obama would lose in a landslide.

The National Journal

President Obama’s job approval rating in the latest national polls has been in the danger zone, ranging from 42 percent (Gallup) to 47 percent (ABC News/Washington Post), with every survey showing him with higher unfavorables than favorables. Needless to say, it’s not a good place for a president to be, especially since his numbers have worsened over the past two months.

The race for president isn’t a national contest. It’s a state-by-state battle to cobble an electoral vote majority. So while the national polls are useful in gauging the president’s popularity, the more instructive numbers are those from the battlegrounds.

Those polls are even more ominous for the president: In every reputable battleground state poll conducted over the past month, Obama’s support is weak. In most of them, he trails Republican front-runner Mitt Romney. For all the talk of a closely fought 2012 election, if Obama can’t turn around his fortunes in states such as Michigan and New Hampshire, next year’s presidential election could end up being a GOP landslide.

Take Ohio, a perennial battleground in which Obama has campaigned more than in any other state (outside of the D.C. metropolitan region). Fifty percent of Ohio voters now disapprove of his job performance, compared with 46 percent who approve, according to a Quinnipiac poll conducted from July 12-18.

Among Buckeye State independents, only 40 percent believe that Obama should be reelected, and 42 percent approve of his job performance. Against Romney, Obama leads 45 percent to 41 percent—well below the 50 percent comfort zone for an incumbent.

The news gets worse from there. In Michigan, a reliably Democratic state that Obama carried with 57 percent of the vote, an EPIC-MRA poll conducted July 9-11 finds him trailing Romney, 46 percent to 42 percent. Only 39 percent of respondents grade his job performance as “excellent” or good,” with 60 percent saying it is “fair” or “poor.” The state has an unemployment rate well above the national average, and the president’s approval has suffered as a result.

    Reagan vs. Carter was supposed to be a cliffhanger according to the media and the polls, but Carter got slaughtered. If the polls show a Democrat presidential campaign with the Democrat losing before the election, the Democrat’s loss will almost certainly be breathtaking.

    Obama has rigged the election. He may well carry 57 or 58 states.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Yes, that is if the election were held TODAY.

    However, after the wimp-twins Boehner & Cantor gratuitously hand Obama his highly coveted raise in the debt ceiling without making any significant cuts in gov’t spending, Obama and the Democrats will win 2012 elections all across the country in landslides as rank-n-file support for Republican candidates collapses out of sheer disgust.

    I am seriously stunned that over 40% still ‘approve’ of this failure in office. Do 40% of Americans like and approve incompetence? Are they even paying attention? Weird..

    @chillguy33: Spit coffee all over my keyboard! Thanks for an early morning belly laugh! Can’t wait to see this man child go down in flames dragging the libtards behind him on his lengthy coattails. “Air” Claire McCaskill comes to mind!

    I think nr 10 is closer to the reality. On the one hand I can’t see how Obama could have 40 %+
    IT should be maybe 19%. Then again I think of my friends–teachers who have been laid off/teminated, still votin’ for Obama, the blacks, even tho they have been scrod by the donks and lefties still support Obama and 97% will vote for him. The Older seniors feel sorry for Obama and wil vote for him even tho they are getting the shaft. Then there is Hollywood,the gays,the arts, the Mexicans, prob 1/2 independents. all the unions. Certain women voters…The thrust is to create an inveitability. And all the debt talk drives the newsday for months and keeps We the People from focussing on the destruction of our way of life. this is what the Junta wants, to bamboozle the populace. Forget Hi gas prices, all theregulation, the blocking of Oil. thecrazy EPA rules killing electrcity production and on.

    Of all the truly amazing things in life, witnessing average Americans sink into a belief that right wing political leaders are on their side is the most amazing of all. No understanding of a Judas Goat I suppose. Who was in power when we were lied to and falsely led into this war? Who was in power when the economy actually tanked? Who was in power when we first bailed out the Wall Street folks responsible for the the mess? On the other side, which party started Social Security and Medicare that so many depend on? Time to wake up folks.

    next election they need to use that picture of him bowing on every election ad his ratings are still too high, many people in denial and will vote for him anyway.

    Broadcasting from beautiful uptown Washington D.C.
    It’s Barack, Harry, and Nancy singing for your listening pleasure….!!!

    All in the Telepromter
    (Or The Liberals Lament)

    Boy the way that Pelosi played
    Laws that made the country rage
    All the liberals had it made
    Those were the days.

    And they all had money then
    Their Girls loved girls and their men loved men
    Man they could use a man
    Like Jimmy Carter again.

    Had themselves one big welfare state
    No one had to pull his weight
    Did’nt that old GM Volt run just great
    Sho nuff! Those were the days.

    Sorry but this poll does not take into consideration the left’s ability to manufacture votes. Acorn is still be funded by Team 44 and the unions are getting their thug thizzle mobilized.

    The polls show how hard it is to kill the “brand” of the president. Utter failures still get support. With Barry, the perplexing part is he has supposedly lost his zealot support. This would indicate not. Otherise he would be in the mid 30% range for positives.

    He is stuck now. because if things get better in real terms, then the inflation and lots of price increases kick in. The way he has crippled oil procduction and exploration, if the economy heats up now, we are looking at 6-7 dollar gas, easily. Higher electricity is also on the way.
    Thanks for nothing, Barry.

    Something is also going on with big oil. They are splitting off refining into separate companies. This does not bode well because that will have impact on cost structures down the road. Overregulation, demonizing, and choking off future supply has consequences. 2012 can’t come soon enough. The concealed damage is even more devastating than the damage that we can see.

    Democraps were the ones who pushed the CRA which led to the financial crisis. The deocrats were in charge of congress from 2006-2010 when the largest parts of the deficit was increased. The democrats passed Obamacare at about 2100 pages that will grow to be over 3000 pages and will kill private insurance. Democrats refused to propose or pass a budget in 2010 when they controlled all 3 branches and they stole GM and wont make the much needed cuts in spending so Yes I blame 90% on them. 10% is the republicans and thats troo much when considering we have 14 trillion debt.

    All the while they were selling guns to Mexican drug cartells , screwing us at Freddie and Fannie and killing the jobs market while claiming he was focusing like a laser for 2.5 years. His laser is broke or he has no clue on what he is hunting. You can decide which.

    You see the difference between the right and left is that we hate crazy out of control spending and taxing and oversized government no matter who is in charge. Thats why the Tea Party came into power like it has. Democrats are morons no matter who is in power GOP or their own communists.
