As the beginning strains of President Obama’s swan song are heard in the run up to the 2016 presidential election, Americans have spoken once again.
Except this time, their answers will surely be a disappointment to the president.In a poll released by Rasmussen Reports on Friday, it was revealed that only one third of Americans would re-elect President Obama if he were to run for office again.
The numbers are even more disappointing among his fellow party members as only 57 percent of Democrats would vote for him if he were allowed to run a third time.
The poll came on the heels of President Obama’s recent trip to Africa. In a speech to the African Union while in Ethiopia, Obama commented on his chances of re-election if it were allowed by the U.S. Constitution.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he remarked. “I think if I ran again, I could win. But I can’t. The law is the law, and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”
Statistics show otherwise, Mr. President. Please do not be fooled — Americans would not choose you again.
The numbers do not lie; it is clear that Americans are ready for “change.” The Obama era in America will soon come to a close and America can begin to recover from eight years of government overreach. We hope.
lso showed that 63 percent of all likely voters would not support a third term. Even among independents, 68 percent would vote for another candidate.
Not surprisingly, 93 percent of Republicans would not vote for Obama for a third time (and we’re a little worried about the other seven percent).
