U.S. Voters Split on Obama Re-Election in 2012

Little change seen since March on this measure
by Frank Newport

PRINCETON, NJ — U.S. registered voters remain split on whether President Obama deserves to be re-elected in 2012, with 46% saying he does and 51% saying he does not — little changed from earlier this year…

The most recent Obama re-elect measure is similar to the president’s basic job approval rating among all Americans, which was 50% in the June 11-13 USA Today/Gallup poll and 48% in Gallup Daily tracking for the same period.

Obama received 53% of the popular vote in his 2008 victory over Republican John McCain. The current re-elect data suggest that — depending on the Republican nominee — the 2012 presidential election could be quite competitive were it held today.
