Poll: Obama better Represents America!

We can pronounce the long GOP campaign to frame Barack Obama as somehow ‘foreign’ as complete failure. In a new Reuters/Ipsons Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,600 likely voters, Americans saw Obama as ‘better representing America’ than Mitt Romney by double digits! I wonder, in fact, if the Culture Wars are not over. White European men are no longer the latent American identity!

Which better represents America? Obama 48%, Romney 38%

Obama comes out ahead both on soft issues about who has the better values, and on hard ones like who is tougher or who has the better economic plan! He really has taken over both key Democratic and Republican issues:

Which is tough enough for the job? Obama 45%, Romney 38%

Which has the right values? Obama 47%, Romney 37%

Who would better lead the economy? Obama 42%, Romney 38%

Has a better plan to create jobs? Obama 44%, Romney 39%

A Quinnipiac poll found that only 1 in 10 voters thought they might see something in the debates that would change their minds.

Newt Gingrich’s sneer about Kenyan postcolonials, the string of snide hinting around that Obama is a secret Muslim, the whole machinery of Rupert Murdoch’s Massive Lie Machines (Fox, Wall Street Journal, etc.), have crashed and burned.

Best represents America? That’s priceless.

    • Well, until they’re 48% of the people, then 49, then…

      The GOP has moved inexorably to the next step of extremism, to start mainstreaming the idea that, yet again, minorities are not real Americans and must be prevented from voting in any way that won’t provoke too much trouble. This was the trap the GOP doomed itself to when it sold it soul to the Southerners leaving the Democratic Party over the crushing of Jim Crow. This anti-democratic mania has progressed to the point that we have recently had a Tea Party congressman call for the end of general elections for senators, striking down a reform that dates all the way back to Andrew Jackson – ironically himself a Southerner.

      The demographics of race will only drive this to further insanity, which Rick Perry tried to get ahead of with his half-assed insinuations that secession was an option. Be prepared.

  1. I was thinking about this ‘foreign’ concept, and Mitt Romney’s life is a lot more foreign to me than Barack Obama’s.

    I know people whose father was black. I know people who lived in Hawaii for a few years. I know people who lived overseas for a time. I know people with African last names. Doesn’t everybody?

    On the other hand, I don’t know a single person whose father was CEO of a car company. I don’t know a single person who has a car elevator, or a dressage horse.

    Is my experience all that unusual? Apparently not.

  2. I hope the polls are correct and not fixed like the elections.

    But, the secrecy, confusion, spin and contradictions that Obama has surrounded himself with concerning most of his past history including his mother, fathers, grandparents, education, colleges, birth records, etc tend to strongly suggest that he is hiding information that would make Americans give a second thought to electing him for a second term.

    I only watched parts of “2016: Obama’s America” since it was listed in the “Top 9″ movies at link to movie25.com where you can watch current movies on your computer. I could only stomach watching about 25 minutes. Enough is enough. The movie has some truths, lies and spin. Now, I definitely don’t trust Obama to be honest nor wise.

    The movie “has become the second highest grossing political documentary of all time — trailing only Moore’s ‘Fahrenheit 9/11.” Watch at your own risk.

    Americans have little real input into the controlled election results. The ignorant American public, controlled by the corrupt mass news media will probably select Obama, but due to the high exposure of “2016: Obama’ America” there a horrible chance that Romney could win. But, don’t fear the electoral college will install Obama since he’s the more intelligent of the two liars. Both are corrupt millionaires, neither with heart nor wisdom.

  3. It’s interesting that the “represents America” question finds an answer from all but 14% of respondents. That suggests that there really is a shifting picture of an “American”.

    On the other questions, which are more directly political, between 16% and 20% refused to answer. These were quite strongly leading questions, but one out of six respondents stood up and said, “I don’t have a dog in this fight”.

    That suggests that a rather large number of people feel this election presents them with no useful choice. A servant of the 1%, or another one who happens to be a member of the 1%? “None of the above,” they answer.
