While general public support for President Barack Obama seemingly shrinks by the day, Democrats apparently see no alternative and are circling the wagons. A new CNN/Opinion Research survey shows that 78 percent of Democratic voters want to see Obama nominated for president again, the highest level of support for him this year, The Hill reports
That 78 percent reading represents a rise from 73 percent just two months ago. And it compares quite favorably to the 57 percent of Democrats who wanted Bill Clinton renominated shortly after Republicans slaughtered Democrats in the 1994 midterm elections.
“The level of support suggests a primary challenge against the 44th president is likely to fail,” The Hill states. So far no Democrat has expressed an interest in challenging Obama.
