53% Say Next President Likely To Be A Republican For the first time since Barack Obama was elected president last November, more than half of U.S. voters (53%) say it is at least somewhat likely that the next occupant of the White House will be a Republican. Thirty-one percent (31%) say it is Very Likely.
Thirty-five percent (35%) say it is not very or not at all likely, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Twelve percent (12%) aren't sure.
That is a stark difference in between the beginning of his term. He has a very difficult first 100 days, and it's continuing to show in the polls. It is still very early, but it must be very disconcerting to Obama to be having such a hard time. If things progress as they have been, Democrats will have a rough mid-term and even tougher time in 2012.
