Rasmussen – 54% Think Obama’s Reelection At Least Somewhat Likely

Those figures include 26% who say he is Very Likely to be re-elected and 18% who believe it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here .) Most voters are less certain.

Voters are narrowly divided as to whether the president will help or hurt his chances by calling for a balanced approach to deficit reduction and insisting that half the reduction comes from increasing taxes on corporations and the wealthy. Forty-one percent (41%) say it will help his chances while 38% think it will hurt. Eleven percent (11%) say it will have no impact. Government employees are much more likely than those who work in the private sector to think the president’s chances for reelection will be helped by his call for a balanced approach to deficit reduction.
Predictably, most Democrats (83%) think the president is likely to be reelected, while the majority (68%) of Republicans don’t. But voters not affiliated with either major party – by a 52% to 41% margin – also think Obama’s releection is likely.
