A significant majority of voters are considering voting against President Barack Obama in the 2012 election, expressing sour views of his new health care law and deep skepticism about his ability to create jobs and grow the sluggish economy, according to the latest POLITICO / George Washington University Battleground Poll.
Only 38 percent of respondents said Obama deserves to be reelected, even though a majority of voters hold a favorable view of him on a personal level. Forty-four percent said they will vote to oust him, and 13 percent said they will consider voting for someone else.
It’s Obama’s policies that are hurting him right now.
Yes… it’s Obama’s policies, stupid.
So what does the Obama administration do? They have Joe Biden send out the following:
I spent 36 years in the Senate, serving alongside Republicans of all stripes. But some of the Republicans running now are not from your grandfather’s Republican Party. They’re from the Republican Tea Party:
- Sharron Angle, who wants to be the next senator from Nevada, has called for phasing out Social Security and Medicare — and even wants to end maternity coverage.
- Pat Toomey is running for Senate in Pennsylvania. He wants to de-regulate Big Oil and open up the Great Lakes for drilling.
- Christine O’Donnell, who is vying for the same Senate seat I was honored to hold in Delaware, is campaigning on repealing health reform.
The fact is this: The corporate special interests trying to elect these Republicans don’t care if they’re supporting extremists.
They just want us out of the way. With your help, we’ve enacted historic reforms despite their best efforts to derail us. Now, they’re focused on one thing — creating a Congress in which they can call the shots once again.
That’s why they’re pulling out all the stops — and spending millions — to win in November.
But we will not stand by and let them take the country backward.
We’re counting on you to chip in today to fight back. Your donation will help us fund the organizing going on right now in key races across the country.
It’s as if they don’t see these polls… or they simply don’t care and are willingly ruling against the will of the people.
Here’s hoping they continue their baffling ways.
They’re seriously in line for one helluva shock in about 6 weeks.
