Whatever we know about President Beelzebub today, we already had known in 2012 or, for some of us, in 2008.
To the question “Suppose that for some reason a presidential election were being held today and you had to choose between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Who would you be more likely to vote for?” or if unsure, “do you lean more toward?”, 53% responded “Mitt Romney,” while 44% answered “Barack Obama.” 3% said “Neither.”
Asked about characteristics they would apply to Obama:
- 52% say Obama is NOT “a strong and decisive leader”; 48% say he is.
- 56% say Obama generally does NOT agree with them on issues they care about; 43% say he does agree.
- 57% do NOT think Obama “can manage the government effectively” vs. 42% who think he does.
- 53% do NOT believe Obama shares their values vs. 46% who do.
- On whether Obama “is sincere in what he says,” incredibly, it’s a split: 49% say he is; 49% say he isn’t.
- On whether “Obama cares about people like you,” 51% still think he does vs. 48% who don’t.
Lest you think the scales really have fallen off the eyes of the “useful idiot” Americans, think again.
When asked “suppose that a presidential election were being held today and you had to choose between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney. Who would you be more likely to vote for?,” a majority (55%) chose the Hildebeast, with 42% opting for Romney. In fact,
- An alarming majority (63%) see her as “a strong and decisive leader,” vs. 36% who don’t.
- A delusional majority (50%) think she “generally agrees with you on issues you care about,” vs. 48% who don’t.
- An even larger delusional majority (53%) actually believe Hillary “cares about people like you,” vs. 45% who don’t.
- An even bigger delusional majority (55%) think she “can manage the government effectively,” vs. 44% who don’t — despite then-Secretary of State Hillary’s lying about and complete bungling of the 2012 jihadist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, abandoning four Americans to their death.
The CNN poll, with interviews, of a national sample of 1,012 U.S. adults, was conducted by telephone (both cell and landline) by ORC International on July 18-20, 2014. The entire sample was weighted to reflect national Census figures for gender, race, age, education, region of country, and telephone usage. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 24% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as Independents or members of another party. The margin of sampling error for results based on the total sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
