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 margin error of +/- 3.3 percent.
The IBD/TIPP poll reinforces the findings of the recent ABC News/Washington Post poll that found that 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.
