Majority opposes second term for President Obama

A new IBD/TIPP survey finds 51% of Americans now oppose giving President Obama a second term:

  • By 51%-41%, respondents in October picked “someone new deserves a chance” over Obama “deserves to be re-elected.” Among independents, it was 54%-36%.
  • Half of Americans give Obama poor or unacceptable marks in creating jobs and economic growth vs. 24% who say he’s doing well. Among independents, it’s 51%-18%.
  • The Occupy Wall Street movement, while directed at fat cat bankers, also reflects broad dissatisfaction among Obama’s political base.

The poll was conducted from October 1-5, and has a marginĀ  error of +/- 3.3 percent.

The IBD/TIPP poll reinforces the findings of the recent ABC News/Washington Post poll that found thatĀ  55% expect Obama to lose reelection.

Using Obama’s own metrics, even Obama says his presidency will be “a one-term proposition.” That is something Obama and I can agree on.
