Governor Rick Perry may hold the lead among Republicans, but when it comes to presidential preferences on the other side of the political aisle, a growing number of liberal-leaning voters say they want Obama out.
In the same CNN/ORC poll analysis confirming Perry's new found status as the GOP front runner, 27% of Democrats said they would like to see their party nominate a 2012 candidate other than Barack Obama.
While survey results from earlier this year placed Obama in a stronger position among, despite the growing disapproval among Democratic voters it remains highly unlikely that the President will face be challenged for his party's nomination. But, as Byron York points out in the Washington Examiner:
The new poll is still a matter of concern to Democrats, because it is yet another indication that there is significant disillusionment with the president within his own party. Whether those disaffected Democrats will come around to supporting Obama next year is an open question -- and perhaps the most worrying of the president's re-election bid.
