New Poll: Trump ahead of Obama by 1

Donald Trump leads Barack Obama by one point in a hypothetical face-off between the current president and next president, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

Forty-five percent of respondents said they’d pick Trump to be president over Obama, while 44 percent said they’d prefer a third term for the current president, the Morning Consult/Politico poll found.

Late last month, Obama told a CNN podcast that a message of optimism, like his in 2008, could have defeated Trump’s more divisive brand of populism.

    Another worthless poll. I can not believe how anyone could want the P.O.S. in office for another term.

    • Carolyn Henderson

      Remember the statistic comes from the ‘news’ media. Fantasy.

    • marihia

      THESE 44% IS ON PERMANENT WELFARE, THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO GO TO WORK

    • Col C

      Well, there are people that aren’t satisfied with the amount of damage he has already done, and want him to completely destroy our country. I really can not understand how anyone thinks he should have a first term, let alone a third term. If the propaganda machine was shut down, or the news sources really reported what he does and has done, the percentage would go way down.

  • Dan

    In the words of Hillary Clinton…..”At this point, what difference does it make?” Trump is President, and Obama is a lame duck…..

    • MJL

      Obama is a LAME DICK HEAD TREASONIST PIECE OF SHIT MUSLIM BASTARD>

    Who took this poll, Rachel Mad cow?

  • GB

    What’s the purpose? Leave it alone. Trump is the new president and he will be a good one. Obama will slowly (only because of left wing media) become the obvious deviant that he has shown such a propensity for, and fade away. Move on America.

  • WVF

    This is total B.S.! People who create these lies should arrested. They are writing not only “fake” news but lying news!

  • Hornet

    Putin would poll higher that Obama. At lease he should.

  • MZTYPLCK

    A TOTALLY ridiculous Poll.!! 70% of those polled think the country is on the wrong track after 8 years of a lazy, clown President. Yet 44% would like to see him have a third term!!!

      MORE FAKE NEWS!

  • A Vet Who Cares

    Only the blind, deaf, socialist, commie, hate the American way of life, would vote for this deplorable person.

    As for the “poll people” …. leave the country with the other Hollywood/Academia crap bags.

  • Jackie Stutmann

    I don’t believe that for a minute! Trump won in a landslide, which indicates the American people voted in exactly the opposite direction of Barack Obama! This poll probably had more Democrats than Republicans being polled.

  • leisureal-

    ANOTHER GOVERNMENT POLL-CONDUCTED BY POLITICO-TYPICAL GOVERNMENT, THEY TOOK 207 PAGES TO ASK MOSTLY IRRELEVANT QUESTIONS. NO DIRECT QUESTIONS OF OBAMA VS TRUMP!` MORE FAKE NEWS!

  • ClarenceDeBarrows

    The 44% vote for Obama is an accurate assessment of the respondents IQ.

  • Louie Crapanzano

    More fake news

  • The Old One

    I am surprised, I would have though obama would be ahead by at least 12 percent or something like 20 points. After all he is the messiah, is he not.
    Now, on a more serious note, correction: on a more realistic proposition:, take away all illegal (not those that did not vote), only the ones that voted, then take away all criminals that are afraid of meeting Billy Bob and Billary with hummus Huma and the dead fish and so on, add to the bunch all of those that promissed positions of power and rewards and I’ll bet if Shen comes short by 50 percent of the votes it’s because of foreign interference. No, not Russia, but what about China, and all the freedom loving Muslim countries obama bowed to in his first apology tour.

    Pathetic. Actually, I have been using this therm pathetic too often in relation to democrats. The correct therm should be Sad, sad to have a bunch of imbeciles having run the country in the last8 years and still thinking they have some relevance.

    Please remind them that the imbecile in chief, himself, once said: elections have consequences.

    Not to refresh his memory, for,he has none, just refreshing yours.
