Here are the results of the Obama Domestic Competence Poll. The results are not statistically relevant, because the distribution of respondents do not match the demographics of the nation as a whole, but the poll itself has no internal bias.

Appreciate the fact that this article noted the poll/study's statistical limitations--too often people who like results try to assert things are stronger than they are in statistical support for validity and reliability of results.

I figured there were moreprogressives/dems/soclsts/etc than trolls/fundys/baggers/repugs etc. :)

Polls can be skewed in many ways for many reasons. Therefore, the polls they refedr to on TV I do not really go by because they do NOT poll EVERYONE or even the MAJORITY of the puplic. Not that they evfer will :)

Any decent poll will include a balance of both parties or they will make allowances for that in the plus, minus scoring. A good poll should have no more then a + - of 3% but that is if the math of statistics and probability still holds true from the dinosaur days, back when I went to college. (N=1)

I still do not like polls being released as if one or the other was a winner, only the votes counted make the winner, that and the electoral college. It may be a very close race, too much optimism can lead to people staying home.

VOTE - and do help others get registered!

OBAMA/BIDEN --- 2012

I voted ‘Very competent’, but still had some real problems with Bu$h League left-overs taking Democratic jobs..I'm certainly tired of Obama's "fair & balanced" FAUX bargaining with America's KNOWN enemies (the RepubliCON Domestic Terrorists!).

I missed the poll – alas! I'm not nearly so impressed! While he never campaigned as a "liberal", I didn't expect his decision on NDAA. As an avid anti-fractitioner – I'm very upset with his proposed use of natural gas as a segue to energy independence – to my mind that alone is enough to change my opinion. I will work to get him reelected, while I'll personally vote for Jill Stein (since NY goes totally dem for pres – it will only be a matter of a rebellious vote. His inability to bring about any bankers or Wall St to justice is now inexcusable, as is his appointed "committee" investigating the previous regimes torture policies which exonerates any and all from any wrong doing and in a sense places that policy on the OK list of US military policy! He's clearly under corporate control, and has not spoken out against gun violence or invested himself in the Scott Walker recall with the major union busting Koch bros.. I applaud his strong stand to seek diplomatic resolutions with Iran.
There's a lot on my dissatisfaction list – however I would have polled "somewhat competent". I'll be vigorously working to get other parties to counter the "2 party – corporate" system we have now! I hope others will also, the 2 party system has failed us dismally, and the SCOTUS is a joke!

I had trouble again getting in to vote and forgot to try again. However I would have voted 'Very Competent'. My main reason being that, while I admire collegiality and operate that way myself, there comes a time when even the most collegial must become a 'dictator'. Mr Obama tried to promote bipartisan work and solutions way past the expiration date for bipartisan possibilities. That lead to being even more hamstrung. I definitely agree that both Krugman and Reich would be excellent advisors and I hope this next time around, Mr Obama will tap them on the shoulder.

There is no room for Republican/Teabaggers in the government.

Get out the vote!!!!! Four more years!!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

Thanks Tom for the poll results and it is a no-brainer for me too. Obama four more years and then maybe Hilary C. and Elisabeth W. for the next eight. Now wouldn't that be something.

Ditto, John B. Speaking of polls ~ am now watching Rachel Maddow. Looking good in the polls are Obama and Democratic senate races.

While I voted that Obama is very competent in foreign affairs,
he must do his job in getting rid of the g o p people in his administration.
Obama and the democrats must do everything they can to get rid of the g o p
people in the government. There are a few people in Obama's cabinet that he
must get rid of as those people are hampering many policies.

Ty, Tom.

Thanks everyone. In my view, I would improve much about Obama. That said, he represents this nation's only hope at this time.

Thanks Tom. I am not that knowledgeable regarding US politics but I still voted for Obama, as an American citizen and I view him as the better of two evils.
