Democratic voters say 64 to 27 that they do not want anyone to

The poll found only 39 percent of men, 34 percent of whites, 35 percent
of political independents
and 38 percent of those over age 35 think Obama deserves re-election.
Obama has lost men, whites, independents and people over
the age of 35.
