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%

"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.

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

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.

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...

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).

@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...
