President Barack Obama holds a double-digit lead over former Gov. Mitt Romney in a head-to-head general election matchup, a new CNN/ORC national poll shows. In a hypothetical race, 54% of Americans polled said they would vote for Obama while 43% said they preferred Romney.
Poor Mitt. He really doesn’t stand a chance. The Repubs like Karl Rove must be stewing.
In the same poll, Obama’s approval rating inched above the 50% mark for the first time since May, with 51% of respondents saying they approve of the job he’s doing and 45% disapproving.
Ah well that will make many Repubs angry- most Americans approve of the Pres.
Meanwhile, 48% of respondents said they have favorable view of the Democratic Party. The Republican Party’s favorable rating dropped to 35%, with nearly six in 10 Americans saying they have an unfavorable view of the GOP.
Which means 52% of Americans have an unfavorable view of the Dems and 65% have an unfavorable view of the Repubs. And yet, they mindlessly vote for them over and over again. There’s a real disconnect between views and votes.
