Regrets, I've Had A Few The One: Poll Finds That Seven In Ten Obama Voters Regret Having Voted to Reelect Him in 2012

R E T R A C T E D

As AllahPundit explains, this claim is so misleading and twisted as to be not only insupportable, but indefensible.

This entire post is retracted in red-faced error. YouGov is now changing their claim.

I won't ever link them again.

...


71%, according to a new Economist/YouGov poll.

However, the poll does not detect much new enthusiasm for Romney, either, because you know he gave a dog a gay haircut and then cancer.

Still, given the choice of Obama versus Romney, Obama supporters said they would stick with their guy, 79 percent to 10 percent for Romney.

But 10% of Obama's 53.5% is about 5.35% of the vote. Would that have turned the election?

As for Romney, his favorable ratings have dropped, but he would edge Obama by about three million votes, probably because Americans are not wowed by Obama's second term performance, not because they like Romney more.

Now, this being politics and political writers needing easy stories, you know what this means: Time for a second third look at Romney? As in Romney 2016?

But in recent weeks, a strange thing has happened: Some supporters and donors, pollsters and pundits are starting to suggest — without irony — that the former Massachusetts governor run for president in 2016. “Once a month, someone would e-mail or call and say he should run again,” said Ron Kaufman, a longtime Romney adviser. “Now I get it every day — from the grass roots, and from donors. I get it every day.”

Exit question: Is this for real?

Exit answer: No.
