Inside the Beltway - Washington Times

The poll was conducted through Friday, January 27 so it's a little old, but over 50% of independents and 20% of Democrats said they'd be unlikely vote for Obama. 53% of those polled in swing states said they'd be unlikely to vote for him.

I think Obama will go the direction of the economy and he has plenty of time to keep some positive trends going.

There is a big change in the Romney polls. Apparently the more people get to know him, the less they like him. If the trend continues Romney will top out at 95% disliked

Incomplete data. How many of the 52% who will not vote for Obama will actually vote for Romney (or Santorum/Gingrich)?

That's the key question. Just because they don't vote Obama doesn't mean they automatically will vote GOP. Many may just stay home or vote for a third party guy.

I would say it's even a higher percentage than that that won't vote for him.

I took a poll of myself and it gave Ron Paul 100% of the vote.

The poll is meaningless. The campaign hasn't begun yet. The 'hard core' know how they'll vote. The rest of the nation doesn't. Polls will become more accurate, reflective after Labor Day.
