Poll: Americans Expect Obama To Win Reelection

Far more Americans expect President Barack Obama to win the 2012 election than Republican Mitt Romney, according to a new Gallup poll.

The poll shows that 56 of Americans believe that Obama will secure his reelection while only 36 percent think Romney will come out on top.

Divided by party, 81 percent of Democrats cited Obama as the more likely candidate while 68 percent of Republicans named Romney. Among independents, 58 percent responded Obama while only 31 percent said Romney.

While most Americans appear to anticipate an Obama victory, Gallup notes that their latest poll shows Romney and Obama running neck-and-neck. A New York Times/CBS poll released late Monday by night also showed Romney with a slight 3 point lead over Obama.

The poll was conducted among 1,012 adults between May 10th and 13th.
