Only 40% say Obama deserves reelection

@Counter Intelligence

When was the last time the President was elected by a poll or a popular vote?

You guys point to these polls like they are gospel truth. The truth is that the only polls that matter are the ones done in swing states - they actually hold all the power in this election. If 90% of Utahns dislike President Obama, does that give them more electoral votes?

CNN fact check.
"Net increase of just 300,000 nonfarm payroll jobs since Obama took office. And if you count government jobs, there are actually 400,000 fewer people working today than in January 2009."

Saint George, UT

If elected, romney has promised 12,000,000 new jobs and a 3.7% unemployment rate, within the first 100 days of his reign.

Should be a piece-of-cake for an expert.

I don't think counter intelligence pointed to it like gospel truth. I think he was simply stating that other people feel the same way and Romney isn't totally nuts in saying "America is worse off." Polls aren't always accurate...and are never 100% precise but statistics and polls can still be helpful in making decisions and useful generalizations.
