(Hotline) — Fully half of registered voters say they would definitely or probably vote for a candidate other than President Obama if the presidential election were held today, according to a new Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor poll.
50 percent of registered voters surveyed said they would definitely or probably vote for someone else, while just 40 percent said they would definitely or probably vote for the president.
Just 22 percent of registered voters said they would definitely vote for Obama, while 18 percent said they would probably vote for him. 35 percent would definitely vote for someone else while another 16 percent would probably vote for someone else.
Obama’s re-elect numbers look, at face value, like troubling signs for the White House. But polls conducted so far ahead of a presidential election are subject to serious flux, and Obama’s approval ratings show underlying signs of improvement.
