Commenting on a new CNN/ORC poll that showed Mitt Romney would handily beat Barack Obama if the 2012 election were held today, MSNBC Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd said that it reflects the fact that Americans are “fatigued” from the President:
This is a country that is fatigued from this President. The more foreign policy problems that pop up, you see in the poll numbers a lack of confidence in him, so to me those polls are more reflective of Obama the person and the President. It says nothing about the state of, for instance, either party.
Todd made his comments Monday on Morning Joe.
Obama, who beat Romney with 51% of the vote in 2012, has watched his poll numbers sink as he has struggled to deal with a growing number of scandals, in addition to his foreign policy blunders. Even though many of these issues existed in 2012, voters proceeded to reelect Obama, and now are having “buyers’ remorse” for having done so.
While there won’t be any rematch between Obama and Romney, voters will have a chance in the midterm elections this November to send a message to the President that they have had enough of his bungling presidency and his false promises. Based on the current polls, it could be very ugly for the Democrats.
How ugly? According to Todd, in states that there are competitive Senate races, Obama’s approval rating was just 38 percent, leading some Democratic candidates to run away from the President in an effort to hold on to their job.
The more Obama sinks, the more the liberal media abandon the man they anointed as a messiah just a few years ago.
