President Barack Obama is in for a tough re-election campaign in 2012, according to the results of a new Newsmax online poll.

The survey of more than 90,000 respondents found that only 27 percent plan to vote to re-elect the president, while 69 percent will vote for another candidate.

The Newsmax poll is updated continuously, and you still can vote in this poll — Click Here Now.

The poll reflects widespread dissatisfaction with Obama’s policies.

Respondents strongly oppose the plan the president favors to give amnesty to illegal aliens.

They believe even more strongly that Congress should restore the $500 billion that Obama’s healthcare reform plan removes from Medicare, and they believe overwhelmingly that the reform plan should be repealed.

Do you agree with President Obama’s plan to give amnesty to illegals and cut Medicare? You can vote by Clicking Here Now.

The nation’s economic condition is the issue that most concerns Americans, according to the Newsmax poll.

A majority of respondents say that cutting spending should be Congress’s top priority this year, followed by paying down the national debt.

Asked “What do you believe Congress’s top priority should be in 2011?” poll voters offered the following results:
1) Cutting spending: 53 percent
2) Cutting taxes: 7 percent
3) Paying down the national debt: 28 percent
4) Improving the nation’s security: 10 percent
