A brand new poll from CNN shows some pretty dour numbers for President Obama's 2012 chances for reelection…
With less than a year to go till the Iowa caucus on February 6, 2012, the conventional wisdom is that President Obama is vulnerable, but there is no Republican who can beat him.
In a new CNN poll, 26% of registered voters say they will definitely vote for Obama and 37% say they won't. If you add in those leaning one way or the other, it turns out that 47% will probably or definitely vote for Obama and 51% probably or definitely won't.
51 percent say that "probably or definitely won't"? That's a lot of percent. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think that's even more than half. Doesn't he need at least half of the vote to win? No? Well, he definitely needs more than the other candidates at least. No to that one, too?
Alright, well, whatever. These polls numbers gathered a year before the election season officially kicks off certainly mean something, don't they? Oh, come on.
