One Year Later: 49%-45%


An interesting poll from Scott Rasmussen here.  If Obama was up for re-election today 45% of adults say they would vote to re-elect Obama and 49% would not.  Intriguing that this is of adults, who tend to skew Democrat in polls, and not of likely voters, who tend to skew Republican.  34%  of the respondents said they would be very likely to support Obama while 40% of respondents said they would be very likely not to support him.  With Obama there is very little middle ground.  We will see tonight if this poll is an accurate gauge of the public mood.

    This poll probably doesn’t mean much. It’s easier to say that you wouldn’t support him than to actually vote for the other guy. How telling is that: a specific candidate is worse than a theoretical one. But I think it’s true. In the 2008 general election, “Alternate Republican To Be Named Later” would probably have received 10% of the vote.

    Depends on the calibre of the opposing candidate.

    If he’s good, then Obama would lose, according to that poll.
    But if he’s a tosser, Obama could look pretty good.
