A majority of Americans don’t think President Obama will win his reelection bid, according to a new poll released Monday.
Fifty-five percent of those polled expect the Republican nominee to win in 2012, while 37 percent expect Obama to win a second term, according to the survey from ABC News/Washington Post.
The poll results also seem to indicate a low level of confidence in Obama within his own party: 58 percent of Democratic voters surveyed said they believe Obama will win 2012. By contrast, Republican voters surveyed seemed the most optimistic, at 83 percent, that their candidate would win.
The poll was conducted by Langer Research Associates with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points.
