Skip to comments.No silver lining for Obama in slew of recent polls (A total, comprehensive disaster)

If it gets any worse, they might call for a suicide watch on David Axelrod.
Here's a thumbnail summary of some polls out recently. Gallup:
"The 46% of registered voters supporting Obama today is five percentage points below the 51% supporting him in final weeks of the 2008 election campaign. Similarly, whites' support for Obama is six points lower than it was in October/November 2008 (38% vs. 44%), and blacks' is down four points (87% vs. 91%). At the same time, Hispanics' support, at 67%, is essentially unchanged.
Whites make up about three-quarters of all U.S. registered voters, and are therefore the most important racial or ethnic group in any election, at least mathematically. Even if Obama were to regain his 2008 level of support among blacks and improve his support somewhat among Hispanics, he could still lose if his support among whites slips any further. By the same token, even a slight increase in whites' support could secure his re-election."
"President Barack Obama's approval ratings have dipped to their lowest level since January on deep economic worries, wiping out most of his lead in the White House race over Republican rival Mitt Romney, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Tuesday.
The percentage of Americans who approve of Obama's job performance dropped from 50 a month ago to 47, matching his mark in early January. The number who think the country is on the wrong track rose 6 percentage points in a month to 63 percent.
The doubts about Obama's leadership helped Romney pull to within 1 point of the Democratic president in the White House race - 45 percent to 44 percent - among registered voters with less than five months to go before the November 6 election. Obama led by 7 points a month ago."

He’s not leaveing folks, his EGO will never let him walk away.. let alone have to walk away for a Clinton.
Remeber “He is the President”.. as he likes to remind anyone who doesn’t step and fetch for his little dog and pony show.
You grossly underestimate this guys megalomania if you think he’s stepping aside. Impeachment is the only way he’s gone before election day.
Thanks for the reply and the analysis. I hope you are right. I am always wary of either the Dems shady tactics or the Repub candidate’s failure to execute. Either or both could be trouble. Although, I have to say, that compared to McCain, Romney has been pretty nimble in going after Obama. We’ll see if he can keep it up.
Liberals are not dumb they are morally and principally unwise and ignorantly selfish. These are the ones who you might be able to speak with, liberals who have some intellectual honesty.
Forget it if you run across an arrogantly pious liberal prick, like Pelosi or almost anyone from PMSNBC.
I believe he's right about once a decade, so maybe it's about time for his to come around again.
But Hillary! might be. That what scares me about a too-early collapse of the Obama campaign.
It's a never ending source of amazement (and amusement) to me that so many people are terrified of The Return of The Hildabeast.
A. She'll be 71 in 2016. That's older than Reagan was in 1979.
B. Appearance-wise, she seems to have aged a full decade since 2008, which plays badly in national elections.
C. She'd be crazy to step in now and inherit Zero's mess. No Democrat will.
D. She has said repeatedly that she has no desire to seek higher office.
E. Unlike terrified Freepers, she understands that black Dems are going to revolt against the party if anyone tries to replace Zero in 2012.
In short, Hillary knows that her last window of opportunity passed in 2008. America simply isn't going to elect a woman who's old enough to be a great grandmother in 2016. Especially when that woman's politics are identical to the guy who's just brought the nation to the brink of total collapse.
I agree with your comments.
But Hildabeast will be 69 by election day 2016, not 71.
October 47 birthday
Hillary Rodham Clinton, born October 26, 1947.
You're right. I've been relying on widespread comments that she's now 67.
Makes no difference. Hillary is worn out. Maybe even beyond her years. I can only imagine what another four years are going to do to her. The US presidency is no place for a senior citizen. That job requires almost superhuman stamina to do.
I know you mean no harm but our Secret Service should never be abbreviated to "SS". Reason being is "SS" shall always be associated with the Nazi police state.
I had a dream not too long ago where it was election night, my wife and I were watching the results come in on the TV (and I was trying to get Free Republic to load on my laptop). Flashed on the screen was that Romney had 74.22% of the popular vote.
For some reason, the number 74.22% has been stuck in my head. Wouldn't it be wild if Obama's opponent came in at that number! I would be laughing my head off all the way to Thanksgiving weekend.
I think the Clinton ambition is still there.
She’ll portray herself as the “female Reagan” and also tout her “co-Pres” ole BJ hisself to share the burden.
Doubt she’ll win though.
I'll just tell you what that PDSers often told me....she's not running.
The poll results are likely to manifest themselves as another 95/5 margin for Obama among blacks...but only 75% of 2008's turnout.
But...it could be worse. Obama has done exactly nothing for the blacks. In fact, he's done far more for gays than for blacks. Their loyalty hasn't been rewarded in the slightest. And it's starting to dawn on many...
Why, thank you. If they (RNC/RINO-GOP) don’t have the stones to do it, then the Tea Party and Conservative PACS MUST, independently, at once!! All through the “Summer of Recovery”, and especially during the DNC Convention. Really go on offense and make them whine to the full moon in political pain. No mercy.
Step One: I don't care who anyone supports here (and I am not too happy about the way the cards have been dealt), but OBAMA MUST BE DEFEATED SOUNDLY IN NOVEMBER.
Step Two: Then, the RINO whom has been elected must be handcuffed politically, immediately, by the Conservative Wing of the GOP and the Tea Party in alliance, along with independent conservatives, so he will not go John McCain on us and the nation, and sell out to the remaining Democrats in Senate and House who miraculously somehow retained their seats. A very strong, Reaganesque internal GOP foe to him must be fielded in 2016 in the primaries, if it seems midway in his term that he has in fact gone centrist RINO on us rather than reverse course for the Republic back to Constitutional Conservatism.
Don't be amazed. Be afraid. The statists are bent on increasing its dependents, in a perversion of the usual tendencies.
Well I don’t think the loss will be that bad, 30% will vote for a party candidate no matter how bad they are, but that’s a nice dream.
