CNN Poll: Americans Wish Romney Was President[Pic]

Americans really wish they had elected Mitt Romney instead of Obama

Mitt Romney 2014?

Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they”d overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor”s bid. That”s just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released Sunday, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That”s an even larger spread than CNN found in November, when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent.

Two years ago, Obama won re-election with about 51 percent of the vote.

Of course, the poll should be taken with a grain of salt. While Obama is actually taking on the tough task of leading the nation, Romney is sitting comfortably on the sidelines. Still, the finding comes as foreign and domestic crises have sent Obama”s approval rating tumbling back to 40 percent, per Gallup.

Also in the CNN survey, a record-low 46 percent say Obama “shares [their] values,” while only 49 percent say he is “sincere in what he says,” also a record-low.

Obama approval rate falls to 40%

    I`m no fan of Obama, but Romney? Seriously? What a frakkin` idiot.

    I`d rather someone just prop a store mannequin behind the big desk in the Oval Office than let Romney run the show.

    But @CrakrJak! Obama is the 4th BEST President in history! He said so himself!!

    SCFOAMF = BHO.

    @BoerdFrank: Pop Quiz: Who was 100% correct about Russia? Just for one example.

    Yes, Romney wasn`t exactly a prize, but HOW could he have done any WORSE?

    Libya is being EVACUATED, that`s how well Obama`s Foreign Policy is working...

    Romney was so clueless he didn`t realize until the numbers were in that he`d lost, when EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET knew he`d lost weeks before the election.

    So I think he could find ways to make our current situation even worse, just by being a clueless git. Which he is.

    "Libya is being EVACUATED, that`s how well Obama`s Foreign Policy is working..."

    They evacuated on Saturday because of an increased threat in the area. A British convoy evacuating embassy personnel to Tunisia was attacked yesterday. Sounds like the order to evacuate was a good idea, eh? I bet if there had been Americans in that convoy you`d be screaming "BENGHAZI" right now.

    Obama is a liar.... and this is from someone that wanted him to win his first election.

    However... Romney is a c*nt.

    I`d rather a liar.

    well... as long as he`s not lying about not being a c*nt.

    Oh wait! It`s Bush`s fault Libya`s turned into a Shiite-storm, right?

    @Zach82: Lies. Obama hasn`t even TRIED to negotiate, he has Reid & The Senate to "cover for him" eh? And he just violates the US Constitution whenever he feels like it, and the MSM covers him for that.
    Libya was ILLEGAL under US Law. FYI...

    To follow up on it a bit Zach, the poll I got from gallup saying that ~70% of people do not know which party controls the house. Problem is right there. You can`t really blame Obama if you don`t know the whole story. Is he perfect? Absolutely not.

    Zach: Harry Reid has blocked EVERY budget the House of Reps. has sent them, every one. Which lead to the gov`t shutdowns and a lot more finger pointing. He won`t let anything, that Obama would veto, to be voted on in the senate. Reid is the most obstructionist senator ever.

    Harry Reid has acted as Obama`s defacto veto since 2011 and will continue to do so until he`s booted out.

    I love it when people trot out Ukraine or Russia as an Obama problem. As in, hrungh? Is Russia a threat to us because some rebels in Ukraine have decided to get chippy with a weak government of a former-Russian state? Really? I`d say when they (Russia) even spend 1/5th on their military that we spend on ours, then we can think about them being a threat. Maybe.

    As for anyone else? Ukraine, Libya, Isis, Benghaaaaziiii?! Threats? No. Not at all. They`re talking point distraction in the same way a few ant hills way back in the back yard are threats. If that`s the best you can do, no wonder Hillary beats Mitt by over 10% in a head-to-head poll (the exact same poll as the original post, by the way).

    Don`t be stupid. America is not the world police. Even if the rest of the world is on fire and burning, that`s not obamas fault.

    What`s canada doing for these regions.
    America doesn`t want Obama playing world police.
    It`s one of the only good things he has done. The guy sucks. Obama is a prick.

    The one thing he does right, is what you choose to hold up as your `proof` he sucks?

    Blame canada. YOU fix the world.

    personally, I`m ready to see that side of the world burn.

    CJ: Boehner has blocked EVERY budget and every Dem vote the Senate has sent back, every one (not to mention the minority Senators blocking most every nomination via filibuster until the rule change). Which led to the gov`t shutdowns and a lot more finger pointing. He won`t let anything, that Obama would not veto, to be voted on in the House. Boehner is the most obstructionist House Leader ever.

    Boehner has acted as Obama`s defacto veto since 2011 and will continue to do so until he`s booted out.

    There, fixed that for you.

    It`s always so funny how you Americans are so polarised over 2-party politics that you take the basic stance that one party is `saviour` and the other is `devil`. "If only MY party was in, this would have been soooo different".

    I mean, it`s not just the usual crapola from a 2-party system, but something special - a heightened sense of heroes versus villains that`s not present elsewhere. Everything in US politics is polarised as good guys versus bad guys, a war on this, a war on that, if you`re not with us, you`re against us. There is no space for nuance, let alone the idea of a third option.

    @WhoDat: YOUR SIDE blamed Bush for EVERYTHING. Including things that happened before he was elected!

    In these cases? YES! Obama`s actions were poorly chosen, and so were his INACTIONS. Now the whole world is paying the price. HE is where the Buck Stops.
    YOU can make -excuses- all you like. I say he`s a SCFOAMF and have plenty of evidence to back that up.

    @SmagBoy1: Obama PROMISED Putin "more flexibility" and guess what? YES it`s Obama`s fault!
    Syria is an "ant hill" with a "few casualties"? 120,000 DEAD makes it pretty high on the "ant hill scale" of dead bodies...

    Obama, Ried and Boehner DID AGREE to a buget! And then Obama phoned them afterwards and demanded 300 Million in NEW TAXES before they could even present it to their parties! REID was outraged! His own man! Reid has never presented a budget.

    Obama did! His budget was voted 433-0 and 99-0 respectively.

    Your facts, they are false.

    The problem is, the idiots who voted for Obama and now regret their decision will almost certainly vote for Hillary.

    It has been said that experience is a harsh teacher, but fools will learn from no other. The problem with liberals is that they are too stupid even to learn from experience.

    "Gallup doesn`t call cell phones. Liberals don`t own land lines. These polls are always skewed right."

    Hahaha. That`s interesting. Sounds like it is probably true.

    Unfortunately, No.

    From Gallup`s site:

    "Gallup includes cellphones in each national Gallup poll. Gallup has been including cellphone-only households in all national telephone Gallup polls since January 2008. Further, cellphone-only households are now as likely to fall into national Gallup polls samples as those living in traditional landline households."

    @5Cats - Fine, I can say the same about your gov`t. Where the f*ck has Canada been? If Obama`s "INACTIONS" are the reason for the world`s problems then Canada`s inaction puts the blame on you as well. You can add every other country who hasn`t done anything to that list as well which would make it a pretty long f*cking list.

    Newsflash, the majority of American people are against our gov`t acting as "Team America: World Police." As the leader of the country Obama`s doing exactly what the people want, stay the f*ck out of it because it`s not our problem.

    SmagBoy: Not correct at all. Budgets originate in the House of Reps, NOT the Senate. Reid won`t even let House budgets come up for debate or brought to committee because that would bring them up to be scheduled for a vote. And Boehner being Obama`s veto? What are you, stoned right now? because that made no sense at all.

    5Cats, they aren`t *our* dead bodies. If you care so much about them, agitate *your* government to spend money and resources and lives on those ant hills.

    @barry9: I agree. I lean liberal, for sure, but I am more than willing to list (and have done so) many of Obama`s mistakes (GITMO, the roll out of the ACA, VA, to name a few recent and ongoing ones), and to give W credit where it was earned (in fact, I`ve said several times here I only blame him for a few, specific things), but nuanced opinions, even if they`re held, do seem to get drowned out here. For me, by far the most sacred issue there is is equal rights for all citizens, with no discrimination based on gender, color, religion, sexual orientation. I can`t even go an hour without seeing attacks on even that, the most basic American tenet. I suppose that`s by design, though--big donors and politicians wouldn`t make nearly as much money without the hate from both sides. :-(

    CrakrJak: I fully understand the budget process. Read my post again. It says that the House won`t consider any budgets the Senate sent back. The House makes a budget proposal, so does the Senate. Independent of the House. Read up on it. Then, you`re right, the House sends theirs to the Senate, the Senate tries to reconcile the two, sends *that* to the House budget committee for up or down and then and only then, once both committees agree, does it go up for review in the whole House and then Senate. It`s a long, arduous process. And blaming one house or the other, or one party or the other for not filing one is wrong. I was joking saying it`s only Republicans. It`s certainly not. But it`s also certainly not only Dems, either. At all.

    Smagboy: "..the House won`t consider any budgets the Senate sent back."

    That`s because the Senate hasn`t sent any back, not even to committee (where differences are normally hammered out). Reid simply doesn`t want a full budget, he`d rather have these shutdowns then blame them on the Republicans.

    It`s easy, follow the chain of command, Reid controls the Senate with an iron fist and takes his orders from Obama. A budget could be hammered out within a week or two, there are several versions sitting on the senate table, for years now, and Reid won`t let any of them go up for a vote. Without a budget, it allows Obama to issue executive control through emergency measures. Which is just the way he wants it.

    CJ, I have to disagree with you. Reid (and the Senate) have sent many, many, many offers back. It`s been all over the news--you know, the whole standoff with Paul Ryan, etc. As I say, I`m not blaming Republicans wholly. But surely you remember all of the negotiations hosted by the White House, how at the last minute, when all was hammered out, Boehner had to acquiesce to the tea party faction even though everything was settled and a budget was all but signed? So, both sides have made offers, and some even reasonable, but for one reason or another, they`ve been scuttled.

    To put it all on Obama or Reid is simply erroneous. Sure, it looks good since the Senate is the final step prior to the president, but informed voters know better than that. There`s obvious nuance that isn`t just black and white, us versus them. Both sides are to blame.

    Or, hey, said another way, how about this: who is it that you give credit for Clinton`s 6 of 8 balanced budgets? Popular Republican lore is that it was all Gingrich. That Speak Gingrich, the awesome man that he was, balanced the budget and forced Clinton`s hand. See how *that* doesn`t jive with what you`re saying about Reid? How could Gingich, the Speaker of the House, be solely responsible for keeping Clinton`s crazy liberal spending in check and forced him to sign balanced budgets and yet now it`s Reid`s fault for no budget? Seems a double standard to me.

    Majority of Americans?? I`m in my 60`s and have NEVER been polled in my life and I don`t know anyone who has either. Mitt Romney was and still is the worst possible choice for any office including dog catcher, (my humble apologies to the dog catcher.) Obama has tried to do some good but not much. Congress has made it their agenda to vote down anything he does, so there that little deal as well. So....pretty much all politicians, Democrat and Republican are rotten, self centered, money grabbers. They are not there to represent as what they were elected to do, but are there to get rich. I say we charge them all with treason.
    Romney, what a douche.

    SmagBoy: "Reid (and the Senate) have sent many, many, many offers back." With the caveat, give us all we want or nothing at all. That`s not an "offer", that`s not compromise, that`s subverting the legislative process.

    At least Clinton was willing to negotiate, Obama pays it lip service but hasn`t been willing to compromise anywhere.

    As I said before, Reid could take any of the budgets that have been sitting on the senate table for years and get one voted on within weeks. He simply won`t let it happen and chance that Obama would have to be on record for vetoing it.

    Cmon guys, how old are you, 12?

    For those with no long term memory, let me explain how it goes in democracies:

    1.
    The people vote for some tool/puppet controlled by the same people who control the media and banks.

    2.
    After a few years it becomes obvious that he is a lying, staus quo perpetuating, warmongering disaster for humanity. Everyone ends up hating the dude (these memories will fade and he will be hailed as a heroic leader within 5-10 years)

    Repeat at next election.

    It always funny to see Americans fighting on here when to the outside world its obvious that its like trying to choose between two turds in a sewer. Same goes for our politicians, they are obviously useless when viewed from the outside, but they seem like the only sane choices around when viewed from within the propaganda bubble in each respective country.

    Democracy has been bought by runaway robber-capitalism, deal with it.

    @holygod: Your selective memory seems to have forgotten that OBAMA invaded and overthrew the government of Libya, then abandoned it to face RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS GROUPS alone.

    "Smart Diplomacy"!

    @WhoDat: Canada has no army, and is a TINY nation. We`ve still been as active as we can, and have ALWAYS been a strong backer of any NATO or UN actions.

    You seem highly "selective" in your World Police roles, only wishing to do the easy jobs, not those that are difficult. That would be the `definition` of Obama`s Foreign Policy. Period.

    @elkingo: At least your idea is EQUAL! Obama (and @WhoDat) is scattered all over the place!!
    Invade here!
    Do NOTHING there!
    Send diplomats!
    Threaten invasion!
    Grant flexibility (so Russia can invade it`s neighbors).
    & etc. Randomness is NOT a good idea...

    Classic divide and conquer strategy, and it works so, so effectively.

    You pretty much know what they will say and believe before they even say it. Brilliantly constructed, I must admit (this is as a citizen of the US).

    Many hundreds are dead in Libya in the past few days: radical Islamist groups are overpowering government forces and capturing their equipment...

    BUT Obama isn`t sending Kerry to DEMAND a cease-fire, is he?
    Nor anything else. Obama broke it, but refuses to fix it. He`s just letting the Jihadist Radicals have yet ANOTHER victory...

    So Gaza and Libya and Egypt ALL have about equal numbers of dead civilians, recently, BUT ONLY ONE makes the news... I wonder why...

    Democracy has been bought by runaway robber-CRONYISM, deal with it.

    There, I fixed it.

    What we`re seeing has nothing at all to do with capitalism. Capitalism means FREE markets, not markets that are regulated and controlled by corrupt politicians and bureaucrats who have been bought and paid for by corporate cronies.

    This is the result of letting our republic degenerate into a democracy.

    "OBAMA invaded and overthrew the government of Libya"

    Invaded? As far as I know the US military had not a boot on the ground during that conflict. They provided logistic support and some air/naval cover for a largely Anglo-French operation.

    This president is outstanding, I would vote for him again if I could. But then again Bernie Sanders might be even better.
