It's an exclusive “WND/WENZEL POLLS” sensation !

They say the main reason for Obama's "popularity" among Republicans is the problem of the Republican choices !!

The poll was conducted by Wenzel Strategies from Feb 1st thru the 3rd.

Obama has also been on the recent campaign trail longer than any of the popular opponents.


See detailed results of survey questions:

Compared to how you expected him to perform as president back when he first was elected, would you say that he has exceeded your expectations or not?

If the election was today, and the candidates were Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Newt Gingrich, for whom would you vote?

If the election was today, and the candidates were Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, for whom would you vote?

If the election was today, and the candidates were Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Ron Paul, for whom would you vote?

If the election was today, and the candidates were Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Rick Santorum, for whom would you vote?

If the election for president was today, would you vote for Democrat Barack Obama, would you consider voting for someone new, or would you definitely vote for someone new?
see the article for details of the "questions"

2012 election looks like replay of 2008


It must be the economy


What Price Glory

You do not appear to be an Obama troll but polls fall into the category, It's not the figures that lie, but the liars that figure."

You can find a poll for everything. You can also predetermine the outcome by how you phrase questions.

Here is a quote from an article I recently read. I posted the link to the full article below. It is a good read about polls.

"Gosh, but I love polls. Really, you can make them say just about anything you want, depending upon how you word the questions asked, and how you interpret the data, and what data you release."

Heck, these days Obama is closer to a republican than a democrat, it seems. Or, at least what republicans used to be before they went far, far right, beyond the Tea Party even.

Just my $.02.

Thanks.

Of course the questions are always crafted to produce specific results.

But at the same time, what kind of questions would actually be "neutral" ?

Not sure what you meant by that, but republicans have moved so far left now, that they are far more left than JFK era democrats/liberals...

They don't fit the the real conservative box at all anymore... They preach a little of it but then turn around and vote for huge government, more taxation without representation, etc. etc...

The demos and repubs all look the same now, they just tell different lies..

I wouldn't trust WND for a source over anything. While it may be true that some Republicans are dissappointed with the outcome of the race thus far (who could blame them), in the end it will be anybody but Obama. Republicans will either turn up to vote this year, or won't vote at all. Obama gained a considerable number Republican cross overs in 2008, but this year I don't think he'll get the same amount, I think he'll get less votes. I do believe however that if this is all Republicans can give us, Mitt, Paul or *gasp* Gingrich and Santorum, then they are going to have a real problem with voter enthusiasm come November 4th.

You are so smart. I know your question is rhetorical, but I will answer. None

This is because each of us has a built in bias. Your mind will always seek the outcome it wants.

Obama will win for sure. Even if the economy collapses, even if he starts a war with Iran.

US voters back Obama as commander-in-chief: poll

Eighty-three percent of those asked in the Washington Post/ABC News survey said they backed Obama's use of unmanned drone aircraft against terror suspects, which have caused disquiet among some civil liberties groups.

Seventy-eight percent of those asked approved of Obama's plans to draw down troops in Afghanistan

Voters were also asked whether they approved of the decision to keep the Guantanamo Bay war on terror detention facility in Cuba open and 70 percent approved.

The poll showed that Obama led Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, by 56 percent to 36 percent when respondents were asked who they trusted to combat terrorism.

Respondents also trusted him more on international affairs by a 56 to 37 percent margin.

In previously released findings, the poll found that 50 percent of Americans approved of Obama's job performance the most since early last year.


IF we are to believe these polls, a whole lot of Americans are hopeless.

Both Romney and Gingrich have enormous negatives -- despite their successes and their supporters, it turns out that for each of them more Republicans don't want him than want him. Either way, whoever gets the Republican nomination will be leading only a part of the Party; a large segment, maybe a majority of Republicans, will be unenthused - perhaps to the point of voting instead for a Third Party.

On the other hand, among Democrats, Obama has far fewer negativities; at least 80% of the Dems are enthusiastic about him.

It's a recipe for a second term for Obama.
