Poll Predicts Obama Will Be Out in 2012

Obama may want to start worrying. According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll by Langer Research Associates, only 37% of those polled said that they expect Obama to win re-election in November of 2012. 55% of those polled said that they expect the Republican nominee, whoever that may be, to win.

Past Poll Predictions

If past polls have anything to say about it – this prediction will be a reality. In past elections, the public’s prediction about the second term for president has more often than not come true.Democrats are sticking by their man, however, as 58% of them to expect Obama to win a second term. This is, however, quite a small percentage, considering that it’s coming from his own party. 83% of Republicans who were polled said that Obama will be out.

Conservatives and Liberals

Looking at the pollsters in a different way, the research found that Conservatives are more confident about the Republican nominee than Liberals are about Obama. Those without a college degree felt that the Republican nominee would win (by 57-35%), while those with a college degree also feel this way, although with a more narrow margin (49-41%)Time will tell is American hit the mark with these predictions. Whether they do or not, the poll is certainly telling Obama that it’s time to get cracking – and to get the American people back on his side if he wants to remain in the White House for four more years.
