Americans think Obama too liberal; fear his reelection 2 to 1

Americans perceive Obama as too liberal and they do not want four more years of “Hope and Change.” — unlike the nauseating adoring French crowd in the pic above. But then, what do they know? The French don’t live in America.
Those are the findings of two new polls.
A new USA Today/Gallup survey asks Americans to rate their own ideology on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the most liberal and 5 being the most conservative.
On average, they rated Obama as 2.3, whereas they rated themselves as more conservative, with the mean score for Americans of 3.3. A whopping 42% of Americans describe themselves as very conservative or conservative. Only 19% describe themselves as very liberal or liberal; 37% call themselves moderates.
A U.S. News nationwide poll finds that Americans, by a 2-1 margin, fear Obama’s re-election.
Paul Bedard reports, January 9, 2012, that when asked what news event they fear most about 2012, 33% of Americans say they fear four more years of Obama, whereas only 16% say they fear Obama won’t win a second term.
Consistent with a pattern established in the 2008 election that catapulted a junior U.S. senator with a murky unvetted past to the White House, younger Americans are less fearful about 4 more years of Obama. Just 28% of Americans 18-24 years old fear a re-elected Obama, in contrast to nearly half of Americans 65 and older who say Obama’s reelection is their top fear.
Here are the results of the U.S. News poll of a national sample of 1,000 households, conducted December 29-January by the global market research firm Synovate eNation:

As we enter the presidential election year of 2012, what potential news event do you fear the most?

  • Taxes will increase 31%
  • Iran will get a nuclear weapon 16%
  • Obama will lose reelection 16%
  • North Korea will attack South Korea 4%

Given these poll findings, 2012 is an election for the Republicans to lose. Alas, the GOP does have a remarkable facility of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Should Barack Hussein Obama be reelected, it will take him between 12 and 24 months to finish off America for good.
It is just that simple.
I had thought by now the sheeple would have woken up, but I’m just not seeing it.

If the American people don’t put this son of a whore and his bitter hateful wife out of the office that he should have NEVER held and is NOT QUALIFIED to hold. The the STUPID American people get what they deserve. And if they put ANOTHER Monkey on some ELITIST’S Chain, in the office thet will get the same! Why can’t the people see the liars like Ronmney, Santorum, Gingrich, Perry they all are preaching about the same thing, Look at me I have religion (just like a death row inmate), I’ve created jobs ( they don’t tell you that… Read more »

None of the above.
All these percentages are about things that will not restore the US Constitution. Impeachment of the president will highlight the many violations of our Constitution have been committed and acting on the Constitutional principles and mandates will lead to a bright future. Sounds like a motto from a Fortune Cookie.
