Liberals Fail: Can't Read Polls

It was argued here that the left are behind the Cain scandal because Obama is afraid of facing Cain head to head.

 

 

Because Cain is such a threat to Obama, it must be racism and not Cain's own behavior that is driving the story.

 

 

 

Well, since that was so emphatically asserted to be true, then I can only conclude that the democrats can't read polls.

 

 

NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll: Obama Beats All GOP Rivals

 

Despite facing an electorate that overwhelming believes the country is headed in the wrong direction, President Barack Obama continues to lead all Republican challengers. Obama’s smallest lead, three points, is against a generic Republican challenger, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

 

Obama holds a six-point lead over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 49 to 43 percent, and he leads beleaguered businessman Herman Cain 53 to 38. Against a generic Republican, Obama leads 45 to 42 percent.

 

“Is he [bill] Clinton or [Jimmy] Carter? I don’t think you can answer it right now,” Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff, told NBC.

 

In a hypothetical three-way match-up, the poll found Obama getting 44 percent; Romney, 32 percent; and Texas Rep. Ron Paul, 18 percent. Another three-way face-off the poll suggested, Obama snags 44 percent; Romney, 35 percent; and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, 13 percent.

 

Obama also hold sizable leads against Romney in the areas of compassion and understanding average people, standing up for beliefs, being a good commander in chief and having the knowledge and experience to be president. Romney narrowly leads the president on having good ideas to improve the economy.

 

In the GOP race for the nomination, the poll shows that Romney holds a one-point lead over Cain, 28 to 27 percent. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is at 13 percent, and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry are tied at 10 percent.

 

NBC noted that last month, before the sexual harassment charges against Cain surfaced, he led with 27 percent, compared with Romney’s 23 percent and Perry’s 16.

 

The poll also showed that nearly three-quarters of respondents thought the nation is headed in the wrong direction. Additionally, just 25 percent think the U.S. economy will improve in the next year.

 

The poll also showed that 76 percent agreed with the statement that “the current economic structure of the country is out of balance and favors a small proportion of the rich over the rest of the country, and that America needs to reduce the power of the banks and corporations.”

 

According to NBC, those numbers include 62 percent of Republicans and 61 percent of tea party supporters.

 

Despite a dismal approval rating stuck at 44 percent, 71 percent say they like the president personally, and 60 percent believe he inherited the current economic condition. The respondents laid most of the blame for the country’s economic ills on Wall Street and former President George W. Bush.

I would be very happy if just ONE time RW would admit he was wrong.



 



not one of his "clever" insults disguised as an apology,



but was just sincere in admitting he made an error.



 



for all his incorrect statements made on SOL, I've never seen him man up once.

Enjoy these polls while you can. Once the circus that is the republican nominations is over the the focus will shift squarely on Obama and his lenghty list of failures. But Bush will not cut it this time.

this is not about enjoyment

 

 

 

 

 

Claims were made that the left are behind this because they are afraid of Obama running against a black man. Reggie is going wild with accusations of racism
