55% of likely voters think Obama is a socialist

Only 55%?

The latest poll by Democracy Corps, the firm of James Carville and Stan Greenberg, has Republicans leading on the generic ballot among likely voters, 48 percent to 42 percent.

Deep in the poll, they ask, "Now, I am going to read you a list of words and phrases which people use to describe political figures. For each word or phrase, please tell me whether it describes Barack Obama very well, well, not too well, or not well at all."

On "too liberal," 35 percent of likely voters say it describes Obama "very well," 21 percent say "well," 21 percent say "not too well," and 17 percent say "not well at all." In other words, 56 percent of likely voters consider Obama too liberal.

When asked about "a socialist," 33 percent of likely voters say it describes Obama "very well," 22 percent say "well," 15 percent say "not too well," and 25 percent say "not well at all." 

This suggests to me that 45% of likely voters are ignorant.

But I guess, given who's in power today, we (in the 55%) already knew this.

Brett:

I would note that this is another shot across the bow from the Hillary camp. Note the source of this "poll". Of course I want Obama out and of course he's a socialist (popular term, we have discussed the fascist aspect before) - he doesn't even make any pretense about it. But replacing them with the sadly predictable and tiresome antics of the Clintons is hardly an improvement. And in some ways they are more of a threat. Obama is *done* after Nov 2 (aside from the lame duck facist orgy) but, say what you will about them, the Clintons were always moderately effective at their goals. And the goals are largely the same. I'd probably rather have a bumbling incompetent facist than a sneaky but somewhat effective facist.

This just means that 55% of the voters don't understand what socialism is. Though the Socialist Party does.

WildWillie:

Paul, I think the poll was really implying "socialistic" behavior in his politicies and actions, which no doubt, is happening as we speak. This poll encourages me that there remains some sanity in this country. ww

Most Americans have never heard of the leftist End Game, if they did they would understand where Obama intends to take America.

Historically leftists have believed Socialism/Marxism can only be achieved through deceit, lies and sacrificing anyone to advance their cause. Obama has already sacrificed the trust of Americans, repeatedly lied about most everything since he took office, and in the run up to the White House duped middle of the road Democrats to elect him President. Now Obama is ready to sacrifice the entire Democratic Party next election, giving amnesty to 12 million illegal immigrants. Middle of the road Democrats just can't understand why Obama will throw them under the bus in November if he can get amnesty first for 12 million illegal immigrants. Obama wants to insure that when he leaves office, 12 million illegal immigrants can stay in the U.S., and the border is still open so 12 million more illegal immigrants can enter America; that will insure Obama's leftist constituency can find back to back--several million foreign born residents to push a Marxist U.S. Government. Do Americans actually think anything they say in protest will discourage Mexican illegal immigrants moving to their state? Mexican illegal immigrants come from a country where force is commonplace. But illegal immigrants do understand getting arrested by police and that is why they have to shut down Arizona's new anti-immigration law. Arizona's new law threatens the leftist agenda that includes overburdening financially U.S. Government, local and state infrastructures to cause economic chaos.

Leftists historically move on democracies to take power when things are in chaos. Obama is now in position to cause that chaos. But unexpectedly, to the dismay of the left, Americans in state after state are standing up to support Arizona. If the Arizona law passes in enough states, and amnesty does not pass, the leftists will have lost a strong weapon to destroy America.

Consequently leftists have become desperate and are now in the process of trying to consolidate 170 liberal and civil rights groups into a coalition to match the Tea Party's political energy and influence--this should be taken seriously. The first question: "Who are the players behind this new liberal coalition?" Historically in America, leftists have displayed a victim mentality, giving up, not voting after the political tide turned against them, as it has now. Obama as a Presidential candidate managed to motivate and hold leftist factions together; and gain the support of ethic groups that prior, were at odds. However, since the election Obama's policies have fractured the left, Obama has lost most Independents. So who is going to organize and motivate the new coalition of 170 liberal and civil rights groups? In other countries, to affect the outcome of elections, extreme leftists have formed liberal and human rights coalitions covertly coordinated by Communists and labor unions.

Typically when communists are concerned they will lose elections, they cause chaos, creating protests; obscure important issues with misinformation to confuse voters, so they will vote for their leftist candidates. In America should Communists be identified, playing an integral role in the new 170 liberal/civil rights groups' coalition, Patriots should vehemently expose early the communists and their associations. Millions of younger Americans, thanks to the educational system, don't comprehend that communism calls for the overthrow of democratic governments as the United States; and abolishing their Constitution.
