Poll: Majority of Americans Expect Obama to Lose in 2012

October 3, 2011

A majority of Americans surveyed expect a Republican to beat President Obama in the 2012 presidential election, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released on Monday.

The results found that 55 percent of Americans surveyed said they believe Obama will lose the election. The number is higher among Republicans –- 83 percent expect a Republican to win -– and lower among Democrats, among whom only a third predicted a GOP victory. Only 58 percent of Democrats expect Obama to hold on to the White House next year.

The belief that a GOP candidate can bet the president is particularly high among Republicans who say they “strongly support” the tea party: 91 percent of those respondents said they expect Obama to lose.

 

The poll, conducted from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
