Poll: 30% Of Voters Say They'll Vote To Oppose Obama
(Washington, DC) -- Thirty-percent of voters say they're going to cast their ballot in the midterm election to tell President Obama they're upset with his policies. That's equal to the percentage of voters who said they were going to do the same before the election in 2010. Nearly a quarter of voters in the Gallup poll said they were going to cast ballots in the upcoming election to give a message of encouragement to President Obama. More than 40 percent said they don't plan on sending a message either way when they vote.
Before the midterm election in 2006, 31-percent of voters said they were sending a negative message to President George W. Bush with their ballot. That was down to 15 percent in 2002. That was after the 9-11 attacks and in the early stages of the war in Afghanistan.
