OK, hold up; let’s not go all James Carville telling president Obama to start pushing panic buttons; no, not yet anyway. Yes, the results of a new poll is as the headline suggests; however, it is very misleading. And of course that being the case, I can expect this bit of information to seep into the media news-cycle, further casting doubts about my man, Barack and his chances. So, let’s look at this for a few. Yes, let’s take a look at some info that will be shoved down our throats:
Republicans are overwhelmingly confident about taking back the White House in 2012, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Democrats are less sure that their guy has another big win in him.
Overall, 55 percent of Americans expect a Republican victory next year. Fewer, 37 percent, predict that President Obama will win reelection. A majority of independents sense that the GOP nominee will prevail, but there is a gaping difference between party loyalists.
Fully 83 percent of Republicans say the GOP nominee — whoever he or she may be — is likely to claim the presidency next year. Among Democrats, far fewer, 58 percent, say they think Obama will win a second term. A third of Democrats expect a GOP win; just 13 percent of Republicans sense a repeat for Obama.
Republicans who “strongly support” the tea party political movement are particularly confident: 91 percent of these Republicans say they think the GOP candidate will win the general election.
The poll was conducted Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, and the results have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points. More from the new poll will be available in tomorrow’s Washington Post. (source)
OK, so did you pay attention? Did you catch the part where Republicans polled were overwhelmingly confident as opposed to 58% of Democrats believing he will reelection? Alright, so what does that mean? Well, if you ask me, it doesn’t mean a goddamn thing other than Republicans feeling a little “Hopey Changey” thing happening. Sure Democrats felt the same way in 2008 once Barry was the nominee. But at this point where there is no clear Republican frontrunner (?).
Umm, this means nothing.
But that’s OK. Because while some of you may currently lack confidence in POTUS. This time next year people are going to remember, that it’s the GOP who were willing to keep millions jobless just to put one man out of work. Think for a second: they’re willing to sacrifice millions of lives….
They’ll also remember, that it is the GOP that was willing to sacrifice the economic stability of this country, all in an attempt to get the incumbent out of office. But keep doubting Obama and believing the hype if you choose. When he sucker y’all in with his rope-a-dope like Muhamad Ali, don’t say jack when he comes off the ropes and knocks these fools out. Yeah, they may be jubilant and full of confidence now. But when it’s all over, they’ll be suicidal just like Dallas Cowboy fans are today.
