Skip to comments.Gallup Analysis: Obama’s Chance of a Loss Greater Than a Win
Posted on 05/18/2012 8:28:55 AM PDT by RobinMasters
With an approval rating stuck below 50 percent, a sour national mood, and polls showing him tied or trailing rival Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama's re-election bid faces an uncertain future.
Gallup polls show that Obamas job approval rating in the first week of May averaged just 47 percent and a May 3-6 Gallup poll found only 24 percent of Americans were satisfied with the way things are going.
A poll released Thursday in the battleground state of North Carolina showed Romney leading the president, and the same day another poll showed Wisconsin which Obama won handily in 2008 is a toss-up, with Obama and Romney in a dead heat.
All this signals bad news for the incumbent president.
Comparing today's economic and political ratings with those from previous years when presidents sought re-election reveals that today's climate is more similar to years when incumbents lost than when they won, Gallup noted.

Obamaumau is EPIC FAIL!
It’s a long time until November and an even longer time until January. I’m afraid lots can happen between now and then and it won’t be pretty.
The illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper has:
- the illegal alien vote;
- the dead vote;
- the black vote;
- the stupid vote;
- UN watchers observing the votes;
- Black panthers guarding the votes; and
- Soros-paid Spaniards counting the votes.
Does anyone honestly think a fair election will occur?
So what, we’ll be no better off with Romney..........the White Obama.
I guess you need to go hide in your bunker until the elction is over.
Republicans feel in their bones that Democrats are the natural rulers of America and Republicans exist only to rationalize the half baked schemes of the Ruling Party, and to make the Democrat atrocities against freedom and the Constitution palatable to the populace.
I used to ascribe those characteristics to "Northeast Republicans" or Rockefeller Republicans" but after watching, aghast, the voting of the "Tea Partiers" in Congress, I know that it is ALL elected Republicans, the exceptions being so damned few as to be inconsequential.
I will vote for the righwardmost sounding candidates in the fall below the presidential level(I will NOT vote for Romney) but have no expectation that there election would make one whit of difference in Washington.
You forgot to mention the James Riady’s and John Huang’s that will come out of the woodwork.
It should have been a landslide. Obama will be lucky to carry even his own state.
Now we are greatful for any crumb a President Romney_GOP wing will probably throw at people on the right.
Opinion and likely voter preference polls are meaningless with regard to the coming presidential election, because the incidence of illegal/fraudulent voting will be absolutely mind boggling. There is no effective preventive legal remedy for this, and after-the-fact legal actions have no corrective effect. After the ballots have been counted and the results duly posted, the numbers will not be changed by the customary monetary fines imposed after months or years of bureaucratic review.
An old study I posted a few weeks ago showed that when an incumbent is trailing in the polls and less than 50 that the challenger is most likely to win.
Some think that the incumbent being below 50% is the key. Not so according to the study. The issue is having the challenger be ahead of the candidate who is less than 50%.
Recent races show this to be true.
In any case, the polls showing Obama BOTH losing to the challenger AND less than 50% do not bode well for him.
Unfortunately, we are still too far out. This will take on added relevance after the conventions.
If you don't see the difference between Obama and Romney then you're just blind (and I *don't* mean skin pigmentation)!
When it comes to saving Liberty and the Constitution..........Romney brings nothing to the table. He’s nothing but a big government stooge, just like Obama.
On rare moments, filled with unrealistic hope for republican guile, I wonder if obama and the DNC have been set up for an epic fail.
That might explain the last few years.
Otherwise, it looks like they are on the same team with obama.
Hello Arthurus, a lot of inside info about the GD Rocky republicans in this 3 part series by Russ Baker called ‘The Nixon-Bush Connection Runs Deeper Than You Know’ http://articles.businessinsider.com/2012-05-14/politics/31694782_1_watergate-cia-secrets
This was taken from his book; “Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years”.
If Obama gets re-elected, business throughout American will continue to be strangled and employment will continue to dwindle.
If Romney gets elected the stock market will instantly soar, investment will return, and businesses will begin to hire and thrive.
Like I thought all postulated fluff based on hope and change Romney style; and not on the man’s political record which is for all practical purposes identical to that of Obama’s.
Romney = Obama.
