American voters say 54 – 43 percent that the economy has begun to recover, a 51-point shift in opinion since September 1, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. This is a reversal from a September 1 survey in which voters said 68 – 28 percent the economy was not in recovery…

But the improved voter confidence does not help President Barack Obama who gets a negative 45 – 49 percent job approval rating, compared to negative 44 – 50 percent rating November 23. Voters say 50 – 45 percent that President Obama does not deserve reelection, compared to 48 – 45 percent saying no in November.

If the disapproval number holds, which it should, then the only way Obama wins re-election is if there is a significant Third Party candidate.

In fact, voters say 50 - 39 percent, including 51 - 37 percent among independent voters, that the U.S. Supreme Court should overturn Obama's health care reform law. Voters approve 64 - 32 percent of Arizona's immigration law and say 61 - 31 percent they want the Supreme Court to uphold it.
Obamacare and his war on states trying to deal with illegal immigration are a turnoff as well.

Yet Romney nor any other opponent is getting more popular....

And by the way, he's not having a war with states on illegal immigration. He's trying to make sure their laws follow the constitution and federal law, which they most clearly don't.

Keep telling yourself that.

But you'll wake up very unhappy on Nov 7th.

Well it looks like the BO admin is attempting a pump and dump spin, against GOP candidates. They will most likely be bringing up the race card as well. I would like to see the GOP focus on Obama and not each other. Things like fast and furious, NDAA, Obamacare, economy, wars etc... so much stuff.

BO's turf. (bit of swearing)

Yeah and what are the most recent Obama v Romney polls showing? Upon what are you basing your 3rd party candidate on. Incidentally, you know the election isn't that far away. There's not going to be a 3rd party candidate.

Ignorance...has a sitting President EVER won re-election with a disapproval rating of 50%? Hint: The answer starts with "n" and ends with "o."

Had a black man ever won a Presidential election? I can give you a hint. It's the same as what you just said. Perhaps you can also tell everyone, with certainty, who's he going to be running against. I'd avoid making definite statements unless you can prove them.

He's not black. He's half black and half white and he was raised by white people. Unsurprisingly, his black father abandoned him. Get your facts straight.
