Associated Press Poll states that Obama screwed up with the direction of this country. Majority of American voters believe Obama should not get reelected. Every poll conducted showed horrible results for Obama. That is a tall tale sign that Obama is heading to a one term presidency.
(Washington Examiner) For the first time in the history of the Associated Press poll, a majority of Americans, 52%, say President Obama should not be reelected while only 43% say he deserves another term. As recently as last May, those numbers were reversed with 53% saying Obama deserves reelection, while 43% said he didn't deserve four more years.
Obama's overall job approval rating has also fallen sharply with only 44% of Americans approving, while 54% disapprove. As recent as this June, those numbers were flipped with Americans approving of the job Obama was doing as president by a 60% to 39% margin.
Going issue by issue, the numbers are even worse for Obama. Only 29% of Americans support Obama signature domestic accomplishment, Obamacare, while 49% oppose the reform. And as the Supreme Court is set to hear a challenge to Obamacare's individual mandate next year, the poll found that 84% of Americans believe the federal government should not have the power to require all Americans to buy health insurance. Only 15% believe the federal government should have that power.
Majorities of Americans also disapprove of Obama's handling of the economy (60% disapprove), health care (55% disapprove), the federal budget deficit (62% disapprove), taxes (52% disapprove), immigration (56% disapprove), unemployment (53% disapprove), and gas prices (57% disapprove). The only domestic issues that Obama is has positive numbers on are the environment (55% approve), energy (50% approve), and education (53%).
Overall, 76% of Americans say the country is heading in the wrong direction and 80% rate the economy as poor. But despite these numbers, Obama edges Mitt Romney in as head-to-head match up 47% to 46%. Newt Gingrich would get massacred by Obama 51% to 42%.
