    Public Policy is thought by more conservative-leaning politicos to be a Democratic Party-biased polling firm.

    From the Public Policy Polling Press Release: Here's an important note on all of this early 2012 polling: Obama's numbers are worse than they appear to be on the surface. The vast majority of the undecideds in all of these match ups disapprove of the job Obama's doing but aren't committing to a candidate yet while they wait to see how the Republican field shakes out. For instance if you allocate the undecides based on their approval/disapprove of Obama, Romney would lead 52-48.

    “There’s a very good chance Barack Obama would lose if he had to stand for reelection today,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “This is his worst poll standing in a long time and he really needs the economy to start turning around.”

    While I'm not convinced; there may very well be "hope" for real "change" in 2012 yet.

    This is why ACORN will be in cemeteries registering new voters for Obama come 2012.

    Here is the composite make-up of the surveyed voters:

    Q13 Who did you vote for President in 2008?
    John McCain................................................... 44%
    Barack Obama................................................ 47%
    Someone else/Don't remember ...................... 8%

    Q16 If you are a Democrat, press 1. If a Republican,
    press 2. If you are an independent or identify
    with another party, press 3.
    Democrat ........................................................ 42%
    Republican...................................................... 33%
    Independent/Other.......................................... 25%

Anyway you look at it, things dont look good for Obama, no more stimulus money left, and Elizabeth Warren just got finished creating the "Consumer Protection Agency" which should further hamper business. Plus Obamacare is coming, which should screw businesses even more, then you have Bernanke and his endless Quantitative easing which will probably shoot the price of oil through the roof.

    The only major bump Obama has gotten in the last year and a half was when he got Bin Laden, so im curious what Obama can possibly do to bump his numbers over the next year and a half.

    The undecideds want a democrat in office, not a right-winger like Obama.

    I think the dichotomy working here is that the Obama Administration is clearly suffering from a serious and painfull self-inflicted wound that is not healing and, in fact, looks worse than it did three years ago:

    1. Declare relentless open class warfare on American business by express design and policy. Make sure the administration issues a steady stream of rhetoric to reinforce the message.

    2. After the administration has sufficiently scared the hell out of the business community, completely rely upon them to hire employees - the administration's political future depends upon it.

    US politicians are in deep trouble no doubt about it. And the masses are concerned with the legality of marijuana and gay marriage...

    Lol, oh yeah, sure thing, business was not downsizing, outsourcing and offshoring until our "Marxist" president came along.
