WASHINGTON — 'President Barack Obama emerges from a bruising midterm election with uncertain prospects for the next one in 2012, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.
Nearly half of his own base — 45 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents — want someone to challenge him for the Democratic nomination, according to the poll.
And, assuming he wins re-nomination, barely more than 1 in 3 voters, or 36 percent, said they’ll definitely vote for him, while nearly half, 48 percent, said they’ll definitely vote against him.
“There’s some serious electoral jeopardy and his position is very tenuous,” said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., which conducted the national post-election poll.
His political problems start with his own base.
Among Democrats, 41 percent want someone to challenge Obama for the 2012 nomination, while 51 percent don’t.
Moreover, a majority of Democratic-leaning independents, 56 percent, want him challenged, while 33 percent don’t.
Among pro-Democratic voters who want him challenged: pluralities of women, voters younger than 45, and those without a college degree. Those who don’t want him challenged include majorities of pro-Democratic men and college graduates, and a plurality of those 45 and older.
Among groups lining up against Obama early:
•Whites, by a margin of 57-27
Those planning definitely to vote for him rather than against him:
•Minorities, by a margin of 57-28
