A strong majority of Democrats would cancel the 2016 presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump if it meant President Obama could serve another term, a new poll found.

Data provided to The Hill by the conservative polling outlet WPA Research found that 67 percent of Democrats would take a third term for Obama over a potential Clinton administration.

Only 28 percent said they’re ready to move on from the Obama White House, while 6 percent are undecided.

Obama is enjoying a surprisingly strong approval rating for a president serving out the final months of his second term.

A Washington Post-ABC News survey released this week found Obama’s net approval rating approaching 80 points in positive territory among Democrats. Former President Bill Clinton was at about 60 points positive within his own party at this point in 2000, while former President George W. Bush was under 40 with Republicans.

At the same time, a Gallup survey from April found Clinton’s net approval rating among Democrats hitting a new low. She had a 63-point net positive approval rating last November. That plummeted to only 36 points in April.

Screw Ball Left-Wing Democrats!! There are Term Limits in our LAWS!!

There are several sets of laws, now....ours and theirs.  

When did a little thing like the Constitution stop OScumBag!

Well, if he gets this crap through, I'll declare OPEN SEASON on Obumbum!

The Constitution has never stopped Obozo

Larry, that is an excellent observation.  Why is that?  I don't get it.  The Constitution is the law...right?  I even think the Supreme Court has subverted the Constitution, like with Obamacare.  I have always believed the Supreme Court should only be able to render a decision with a super majority.  Never a simple majority, 5/4, but a 7/2 super majority.  The justices should have to duke it out, convince opposition to see it their way.  Even a 6/3 would be better.  The way I see it, most, if not all, decisions are derived based on ideology. 

What scare me was the 4/4 vote on Immigration. The Constitution CLEARLY gives that to Congress. It's right there in black and white. Yet 4 liberal judges ignore the Constitution and vote to let Obama make his own laws. If Hillary gets elected we are totally screwed.

Larry, exactly.  Is it that 4 of those justices don't know or understand the Constitution?  Simply put, an example; Article II Section 1 Clause 5 to run for the presidency, in part:...attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States...  So, if someone 30 years old ran for president and brought before the Supreme Court, would they have anything less than a unanimous decision?  Would a 5/4 decision be a huge news story?  Why would 5 say a person has to be 35 where 4 would say it was ok to be less than 35.  I know.  It's a silly analogy, but it is the best I can do for now. 

Laws! Laws don't apply to Dems. Maybe they'll commission an executive crown as well. These are definitely dark times that we are living in.  

Laws will apply to Dems as soon as the Fascist Agenda is fully implemented..!

The IGNORANT idiots..!

*Edited Offensive Word, Please Re-Read the members rules*

I think that is in the Constitution but they don't follow that.  They conveniently ignore it whenever it suits them.

"What difference does it make?" Hillery or obama both are the same when it comes to making America Great again.....worthless!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
