Poll: Most Voters Aren’t That Stupid

Posted on | September 4, 2012 | 11 Comments

Unfortunately for the Democrats:

A majority of voters believe the country is worse off today than it was four years ago and that President Obama does not deserve reelection, according to a new poll for The Hill.
Fifty-two percent of likely voters say the nation is in “worse condition” now than in September 2008, while 54 percent say Obama does not deserve reelection based solely on his job performance. . . .
Just 40 percent of voters said Obama deserves reelection.

(Via Memeorandum.) A political party organized on the basis of deceiving the ignorant will eventually fail when the people wise up. From this stems the constant pressure for Democrats to invent new lies. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:

This demonstrates the danger for Team Obama in running on their record. They cannot allow this election to be about Barack Obama and his agenda. They have to make it about Mitt Romney and how deeply scaaaaaaary Republicans are.

Mitt Romney: He Puts the Eeee! Back in “Evil.”

    […] UPDATE–Stacy McCain takes these poll results as evidence that voters may not be that stupid after all. […]

    A small example of that is Elizabeth Warren. She was supposed to win Massachusetts in a cake walk. Yet she is a serial liar who was never vetted by the Democrats. Now Native American Delegates are questioning her openly at the DNC itself. The only connection Elizabeth Warren has to the Cherokee is that one of her ancestors helped round them up to send them to Oklahoma on the “Trail of Tears.”

    So was Martha Coakley.

    However, nobody ever went broke overestimating the stupidity of the Massachusetts voter.

    One way we’re better off, we’re closer the end of the nightmare than the beginning, FWIW.

    But they should have had better sense than to push Warren and push out any competition for the nomination. Obama had wanted her to head his Consumer Meddling Agency, which she designed, but couldn’t submit her nomination to the 59 Democrats in the Senate for confirmation. She was too far left for the Democratic Senate to even have a chance of confirming.

    That should have been a clue. Harry Reid told Obama, “No.” That whiny little thief never tells Obama he won’t do something, but Warren was too much to ask, even of him.

    At best, this is the end of the beginning.

    The current state of things is so bad and has progressed so far down The Road To Serfdom that I fear only some sort of devastating trauma will be effective enough in convincing enough people to change their thinking. We’re perishing in a orgy of Leftist Thinking about all things in all areas. A major reprogramming by every individual is necessary and usually it takes something akin to a 2×4 upside the head to force the needed reboot of the Soul.

    The Democrats are working hard on being the first.
