As the beginning strains of President Obama’s swan song are heard in the run up to the 2016 presidential election, Americans have spoken once again. Except this time, their answers will surely be a disappointment to the president.
In a poll released by Rasmussen Reports on Friday, it was revealed that only one third of Americans would re-elect President Obama if he were to run for office again.
Rasmussen also showed that 63 percent of all likely voters would not support a third term. Even among independents, 68 percent would vote for another candidate.
Not surprisingly, 93 percent of Republicans would not vote for Obama for a third time (and we’re a little worried about the other seven percent).
The poll came on the heels of President Obama’s recent trip to Africa. In a speech to the African Union while in Ethiopia, Obama commented on his chances of re-election if it were allowed by the U.S. Constitution.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he remarked. “I think if I ran again, I could win. But I can’t. The law is the law, and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”
