UTICA, N.Y. – Fifty-seven percent of likely voters believe it’s time to elect someone new as President while just 37 percent agree that Barack Obama deserves to be re-elected, according to the latest interactive poll from IBOPE Zogby.
There is a sharp divide along party lines, with 73 percent of Democrats favoring Obama’s re-election, while just 31 percent of independents and five percent of Republicans believe the President should get a second term.
Just 41 percent of voters approve of Obama’s performance as President, down from 43 percent on April 15 and his 2011 high mark of 47 percent on March 8. Voters are not happy with Congress, either. Just 35 percent approve of the job Congressional Republicans are doing and 31 percent approve of Congressional Democrats.
Two thirds of voters believe America is headed in the wrong direction; just 25 percent believe it’s on the right track.
The IBOPE Zogby interactive poll of 2,055 likely voters was conducted from April 21-25 and has a margin of error of +/-2.2 percent.
