Poll conducted Jan. 12-17.
1/19/12, "Obama hurting with swing voters, poll shows," Politico, MJ Lee
"President Barack Obama is poorly positioned with key independents less than a year away from Election Day, with less than a third of swing voters expressing a favorable opinion of the president in a new poll.
Just 31 percent of independent voters indicated a favorable opinion of the president in a New York Times/CBS News poll out Thursday, compared to a 38 percent favorability rating among all voters.
Asked about how Obama is handling his job, the majority of swing voters, 52 percent, said they disapprove while 37 percent said they approve.
Meanwhile, two-thirds of swing voters said the president hasn’t made significant progress in fixing the country’s economy, while six in ten of them said
- Obama doesn’t share their priorities for the country.
The poll also revealed that more than five in ten independent voters, 54 percent, do not have a clear idea of what the president wants to accomplish during a second term of presidency.
The New York Times/CBS News poll was conducted Jan. 12-17 among 1,154 adults and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points."
Ed. note: Obviously, anyone who doesn't enjoy watching America being trashed is a racist.
