Did Obama Voters Know What They Voted For?

The lovely and gracious Mary Katharine Ham at HotAir.com has put together some polling data at a blog post. And basically these three polls indicate — I’m not exaggerating here — indicate that there’s very little that comes out of Obama’s mouth that anyone really likes, including his voters. These polls indicate that people don’t support his liberal ideas. It’s the most convoluted thing.

For example, the first poll, it’s a poll by Benenson Strategy Group for the moderate Democratic think tank Third Way and it was first reported on Politico, says that a majority of people in this country want spending cuts, not tax increases, and they don’t like Obamacare. Go figure. What are we to do? What are we to make of this? A majority of Obama voters do not want tax increases, and they don’t like Obamacare. What in the world explains this? Lord knows, gosh. Is it possible that a lot of people who elected Obama didn’t care a whit what he said, or don’t know? How do you make sense of this? Is it now that people are finally being honest with pollsters? No, because if they were lying they would have voted for Romney. This doesn’t make any sense.

Okay, they hate Romney more. Hate Republicans more. They trust Republicans less. You’re locked onto that. It’s they hate Republicans. Obama voters hate Republicans so much that it doesn’t matter, they’re voting for Obama. All right, it’s the Snerdley view. The Official Obama Criticizer says the only way to explain this is that the voters hate the Republicans, and it doesn’t matter what Obama stands for, they’re gonna vote for that because they’re actually voting against Republicans, they hate ’em. Okay, that was a survey of 800 voters.
