Buyers’ Remorse

Now Americans Say They Want Romney

Romney vs. ObamaGet this: Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a new CNN/ORC poll shows.

According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote while Obama would receive only 44%, CNN reported. That’s quite a turnaround, especially when you consider that Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election.

And there’s more interesting news in the poll:

  • Less than half of those polled (48%) think President Obama is a “strong and decisive leader.” That’s a new low for Obama. A majority (52%) do not see the president as a strong and decisive leader.
  • A majority of the respondents (56%) say that President Obama does not agree with them on issues they care about. Only 42% believe he does agree with them.
  • Only 42% think Obama can “manage the government effectively.” Another new low. A whopping 57% saw the president cannot manage the government effectively.
  • Barely half of the people (51%) say they feel Obama “cares about people like me.” This again is a new low, and this in an area where Obama has always been strong and has scored as high as 73%.
  • Only 46% say Obama “shares my values.” Again, this is a new low in a criteria where Obama has scored as high as 72%. A majority (53%) say Obama does NOT share their values.
  • Only 49% even believe that President Obama is “sincere in what he says.”
  • New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has jumped back on top and is now once again the choice of republicans polled to gain his party’s nomination. Christie garners 13% of Republican support followed closely by Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee with 12% each. Christie had slipped to as low as 8% at one point.

These figures spell bad news not just for Obama but for the Democrat Party since a president going into a midyear election with these numbers usually finds his party on the losing side come November.

  1. Well too fucking bad, let the ignorant cocksuckers that voted for Obama not once but twice, sit and live, and eat their own shit. Die you stupid cocksuckers!

  2. I mean the GOP has a terrible track record with Presidential candidates nowadays (Bush, McCain, Romney)…. so I wouldn’t be surprised if Romney somehow got picked yet again in 2016. Then he would probably win if he goes against anyone but Clinton… then were in for this all over again.

    Why is everyone trying to ram anyone but Paul down our throats (Rubio, Christie, Huckabee, Romney, Bush 5000, Ryan)?….. It’s getting pretty annoying, even if I wasn’t a Paul fan. He leads in the polls for a week and they rush to make up some magical story about them. And then he STILL leads in the polls. The last few weeks everyone’s been trying to ram Romney down our throats.

    No Thank You.

  3. Theres not one candidate that would be able to carry his/her home state if they were against Clinton. Biden and Booker MAYBE. Warren definitely. FL would probably go to anyone but Warren – if I were a betting man. And that would be the only state in play. NJ would never go red. And Arkansas and KY is usually always red too. Mass is pretty blue as well.

  4. Aren’t polls also saying that Mitt Romney would lose to Hildabeast?

  5. Christie and Paul are the only 2 that stand a ‘slight’ chance against Clinton – according to polls.

    I would imagine Romney would be buried from the start if he were up against her. Obama vs. Romney would be a cakewalk for him in comparison.

  6. Just imagine… this time next year we will have a good guess on who is running. If Clinton passes, I bet the DNC becomes so A) terrible that it relies on Biden to somehow win or B) desperate that they make Booker jump into the race (I really don’t see how in the world Warren of all people would take off). And even if she doesn’t Booker might jump in anyway. Then it would be Clinton, Biden, Booker, and possibly Warren. And Huckabee (Romney?) Paul and Christie.

    I mean – it might be just me- but 2016 is literally turning into the 2008 race slowly but surely.

  7. Gov. Christie didn’t “destroy” NJ…Decades of Dems in control managed to do that and are continuing to do so
