The poll is good news for pro-life advocates looking to replace the man who has become perhaps the most pro-abortion president in history, but the 38 percent figure is still 12 percent short of getting a majority of the nation to agree to replacing Obama next year.

A new Politico-George Washington University poll finds 38 percent of Americans say they will definitely not vote for President Barack Obama when he seeks re-election in 2012 against one of several Republicans.

The survey found sixty percent (60%) of voters believe the country is on the wrong track, including a strong majority of Independents (61%) who hold this negative view of how things are going in the country.

Ed Goeas, who conducted the poll, described some of the findings in a Politico opinion column.

“This data indicates there is a clear opportunity for the GOP Presidential nominee to run this playbook again. A majority (57%) of voters indicate they are extremely (18%) or very worried (39%) that the country will suffer another economic downturn in the near future that will have a negative impact on their family,” he added. “This economic anxiety and pessimism is a toxic combination for an incumbent President, and time is running out for the President to change that dynamic in his re-election bid.”
