Poll: Majority Believe Obama Should Not Get Second Term
February 22, 2010 by Special To Personal Liberty
A new research poll indicates that a majority of Americans believe that President Obama is undeserving of a second term in office.
The CNN/Research Opinion poll found that 52 percent of Americans feel that Obama should be a one-term president. Nearly 44 percent of respondents said that Obama deserves to be reelected, while 4 percent answered that they have no opinion. Registered voters and non-registered citizens responded in an identical fashion.
The poll also revealed a possible disconnect between the president and middle-class voters.
"One problem Obama faces may be the perception that Obama is not a middle-class kind of guy," said polling director Keating Holland, quoted by the New York Daily News.
"Only 4 percent of Americans describe themselves as upper class. But a 45 percent plurality say that Obama belongs to the upper class, with 42 percent saying he is from the middle class and 12 percent describing him as working class," he added.
Meanwhile, the survey found that only a third of voters believe that most members of Congress deserve to be reelected, an all-time low for the poll.
