Poll: Even left leaving Obama

A new Zogby International poll shows even the left is drifting away from Barack Obama’s side.

His re-election numbers are the lowest of his presidency so far – at 38 percent.

And only 35 percent of independents, whose support will be crucial for his re-election, would vote to re-elect him if the election were held today.

The poll also shows 55 percent of those surveyed say they want someone new at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Of those surveyed, 17 percent of Democrats want to see a change, as do 55 percent of independents and 94 percent of Republicans.
