The atmosphere before the midterm elections apparently didn’t do a thing to chasten Obama’s most hardcore, Democrat fans. A new poll shows that nearly a third of those Democrats surveyed wish Obama could have a third term.
A new Economist/YouGov poll that was conducted just before the elections certainly showed that overall a large number of respondents are unhappy with Obama, but there was also a large number of Democrats who thought that Obama was so great that he deserves a third term.
The poll found that 39 percent of the Democrats surveyed wished that the 22nd Amendment that holds a president to only two terms didn’t exist so that Obama could run for a third term.
