Given his boundless arrogance, President Obama’s recent boasting about winning a third term as president, were he allowed to run, probably didn’t surprise anyone all that much really. Even if it was enough to send chills up our spines or turn our stomachs.I’m pretty sure each of you reading this could conjure up all sorts of absolutely horrifying scenarios of what a third Obama term might look like. A first term was bad enough, and we’re all just hoping and praying that our republic makes it out of Obama’s second term alive.
So perhaps we can all take a little bit of solace in this new poll released showing what might happen in the frightening scenario of President Obama actually seeking a third term. It ain’t pretty… for Obama, at least.As The Hill reports:
In a Monmouth University poll released Monday morning, President Obama’s claim that he could win a third White House term if he were to run in 2016 is put to the test — and fails.“Under our Constitution, I cannot run again,” Obama told members of the African Union during a recent trip to Ethiopia, adding, “I think if I ran, I could win.”
According to the Monmouth poll, Obama should be glad he can’t run again.
Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they would vote for someone else, while only 26 percent said they would be willing to give the president four more years.Though an understandably low number of Republicans would cast their vote for a third Obama term (5 percent), he polls at just 23 percent with independents. Even Democrats aren’t so sure they’d want Obama back in the Oval Office: 43 percent would vote for another candidate.
Meanwhile, Obama’s job approval rating appears to be holding steady with Democrats — 79 percent versus 80 percent in Monmouth’s July poll.
But his disapproval ratings are up with both Republicans (85 percent versus 80 percent) and independents (52 percent versus 48 percent).
In other words, Obama’d get CRUSHED if he ran for a third term, despite a majority of Democrats holding fast to their delusions.So, it seems that FINALLY, Obama’s luster is wearing off — at least for most of the voting populace. Cold comfort, perhaps, given what his two terms in office have done to our great nation. And considering who’s on the docket as possible successors on the Democrat side. We can only hope that people are starting to connect the dots between Obama’s failed policies and the current candidates who’d carry them forward.
