A new POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground poll finds only 38 percent of respondents said President Obama deserves to be reelected.
This poll is reminiscent of the Harris poll that found only 43 percent would vote to reelect Obama and the CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll that found 52 percent of registered voters say President Obama does not deserve a second term.
Worse for Obama, the new poll also finds a "significant majority" of voters are considering voting against Obama in the 2012 presidential election:
Forty-four percent said they will vote to oust him, and 13 percent said they will consider voting for someone else.
Other interesting findings in the Battleground poll include:
- Voters disapprove of the Democrats' ObamaCare law by a 13-point margin.
- More than half of the self-identified independents — 54 percent — have an unfavorable opinion of ObamaCare.

The fact that only 38 percent say Obama deserves reelection reflects growing dissatisfaction with his extreme left-wing initiatives, such as the Democrats' unpopular ObamaCare legislation. His low approval puts Obama and his big spending Liberal Democrats in a similar position as the 1994 midterm election. According to POLITICO, Obama's paltry 38 percent reelect number is the same as Gallup's finding for Bill Clinton in October 1994.
