    43 Percent Would Vote To Re-Elect President Obama


    Six in 10 Americans -- 60 percent -- think Obama is a strong and decisive leader.

    Does not bode well for America when 6 in 10 Americans are dumber than dirt.


    Fox News Poll: 43 Percent Would Vote To Re-Elect President Obama
    If the election were held today, 43 percent of American voters would back Barack Obama for president, according to a new Fox News poll.

    Thursday, October 15, 2009


    In what may be the ultimate job rating, 43 percent of voters say that they would vote to re-elect President Obama if the 2012 election were held today, down from 52 percent six months ago, from April 22-23, 2009.

    Obama's job approval rating comes in at 49 percent this week. That's down just one percentage point from late September, but it marks a new low approval for the president -- and the first time the Fox News poll has measured his approval below 50 percent.

    Moreover, the number of Americans saying they would vote to re-elect President Obama has dropped. If the election were held today the poll finds more voters say they would back someone else in the 2012 election than would back the president.

    Despite winning the Nobel Peace Prize last Friday, the latest Fox News poll finds the president's ratings on foreign issues are lower than his overall job ratings. All in all, 49 percent of Americans say they approve of the job President Obama is doing and 45 percent disapprove. His average approval for the term so far is 58 percent.

    On Afghanistan, 41 percent of Americans say they approve of the job Obama is doing and 43 percent disapprove. For his handling of Iran, 44 percent approve and 43 percent disapprove.
    On the president's handling of the economy, voters are almost equally split: 48 percent approve and 49 percent disapprove. On health care, some 42 percent approve of the president's performance and half disapprove, 50 percent.

    Among Democrats, 78 percent say they would vote to re-elect President Obama, down from 87 percent in April. For 2008 Obama voters, 81 percent say they would vote to re-elect him -- that's a slight up tick from the 79 percent who said so previously.

    Six in 10 Americans -- 60 percent -- think Obama is a strong and decisive leader.

    And while 38 percent think President Obama is getting good advice from his advisors, a larger number -- 45 percent -- think he is "listening to the wrong people"

    Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from October 13 to October 14. The poll has a 3-point error margin.

    Did He Deserve It?

    Upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama said, "To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformational figures." Most Americans agree with the president -- 65 percent say he did not deserve to win, while 29 percent say he did.

    Furthermore, a slim 54 percent majority of Democrats think Obama did deserve to win, while 38 percent disagree. For independents, 19 percent think he deserved it, while nearly three-quarters, 74 percent, say he did not. Among Republicans, almost all -- 91 percent -- say he did not deserve it.

    When asked why the Nobel Committee gave the president the prize, about a third of Americans, 32 percent, say because he deserved it, while the largest number -- 44 percent -- think the committee hoped the prize would make Obama "think twice before using military force in the future."

    Congress

    Most Americans are unhappy with Congress these days -- 66 percent disapprove, including 45 percent of Democrats, 77 percent of independents and 84 percent of Republicans. Overall, less than one of four Americans, 24 percent, approve of the job Congress is doing.

    Looking ahead to the 2010 Congressional election, for the first time this year the Republicans have the advantage: 42 percent of voters say they are more likely to back the Republicans to provide a check on President Obama's power, while 38 percent say they would vote for the Democrat to help the president pass his policies.

    Finally, in a rare example of bipartisan agreement, majorities of Democrats, 53 percent, Republicans, 78 percent, and Independents, 61 percent, agree the country is more divided these days. All in all, 64 percent of Americans think the country is more politically divided today -- that's more than twice the number who say it is not more divided, 31 perce

    Obama will do more for the working man and create more jobs than any republican every will. They have already been reporting all the jobs that have been saved or created from state to state. I'm proud of the job he's done. This health care reform will pass and he and the democrats will receive all the glory for the historic acheivements this administration will soon accomplish.

    Really? You've got to be kidding me. Increasing inflation, continued job loss, cap and trade, taxpayer supported medical insurance for those who can't afford it-none of this helps me, a working man.

    Instead of arguing congress spending 900 billion over the next decade to help the American people afford health insurance lets argue how much George Bush and the republicans spent on the bailouts for the rich. I don' t here much revolt talk on that. Wonder why everybody is ok with the rich ceo's getting their tax dollars but when it comes to a family that can't get health insurance cause of pre existing conditions we want to take somebody's head off.

    Even though no one ever takes him seriously, someone I'd like to see run in 2012 on the Republican ticket is Alan Keyes. I don't like the fact that he disowned his daughter for being gay (but then again, who's perfect,right?), but as a politician, I love the guy. I'd like to see Indiana governor and President Bush's former budged director Mitch Daniels (whose fiscal policies, by the way, has made the Hoosier State the envy of the rest of America) as his running mate. If he can tone down some of his more extremist rhetoric, he would make a formidable opponent for Obama in 2012.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
