Nearly three-fourths of voters who voted for President Obama in 2012 wish they hadn’t, a new Economist/YouGov.com poll finds. But are these numbers as bad as they seem? Let’s take a look.

The poll asked those who voted for Obama's reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?”
Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no.
— 80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes.
— 84 percent of women said yes, and just 61 percent of men agreed.
— 55 percent of Democrats said yes, as did 71 percent of independents.
Still, given the choice of Obama versus Romney, Obama supporters said they would stick with their guy, 79 percent to 10 percent for Romney.

Talk about your buyers remorse, Democrats have it in spades. No wonder they get so upset when anyone mentions what a terrible job Obama is doing. They were sold a bill of goods and are too embarassed to admit it.

Your poll does not match your headline. I find it interesting that both young adults and Seniors would still vote for Obama,overwhelmingly.

From your link:

As of February 6th-7th, views of Romney are 41% favorable and 47% unfavorable, for a net rating of -6. This not only suggests insubstantial change in public opinion about the former candidate, it suggests that Romney is still viewed less favorably than Obama
If the election was held again today, RMoney would still fucking lose.

I have no regrets, enjoying reading your suffering and painful posts. The Black man got the full 8 years ruling your world, sweet. And you get to look forward the Democrats holding the Pres. office in 2016 and getting 2 more SCOTUS picks min. as well. FYI. Do you hate white female Presidents? You should get a jump on this as Pres. Obama here to stay, for your displeasure of life, and for my pleasurable enjoyment reading your pain.

Wonder how many regret voting for these 2 war criminals?

I'm guessing enough to keep the GOP out of the WH for the foreseeable future.

His pain is palpable, you can see him twisting in the wind every single day with his daily hate Obama threads.

That Hispanic vote could be a big problem though.

Obama and the dems better giddy up on that immigration bill.
