“54% of Likely U.S. Voters think Obama is more ideologically liberal than they are, while only 13% view him as more conservative. Twenty-four percent (24%) say their political views are about the same as the president’s. ”
Scary numbers to see after three whole years in office. The 13% represents the progresso-liberal/socialists (they’ll still vote for his holiness). Meanwhile, 1 in 4 think Obama is a middle of the road bloke just like them?! Disturbing. Are these people not paying attention? Why do they even go to the trouble of voting, these 1 in 4? BUT, these are the one’s who’ll decide the next election. At the same time it would appear there are 9% who don’t know or are undecided. America is held at the mercy of the wishy-washys…
“Forty-five percent (45%) of Democratic voters, however, say their views are about the same as the president’s, although that ties the lowest finding to date. The number of Democrats who felt this way peaked at 60% in late February. Twenty-four percent (24%) of Democrats say the president is more conservative than they are, while 22% think he is more liberal.”
So more dems — conservative dems and former Reagan democrats — are beginning to view Obama as a bona fide lefty.
“Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters believe Obama is qualified to be president. Among those who hope to take his place, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is the only Republican 2012 hopeful that a sizable number of voters considers qualified to be in the White House. ”
–so a Romney (“49% of Likely U.S. Voters think that Romney is qualified to be president“) isn’t as qualified to be President as an Obama, according to a plurality of voters, is that right??
