Allen West “Will the American people be fooled again?”

Written by Allen West

I live in PGA National, a stellar golf course community. I will admit I’ve never swung a golf club, but I love running along the courses, and I often hear people talking about do-overs and mulligans. According to recent Economist/YouGov poll, seems like a lot of Americans would like to take a mulligan regarding their vote for Obama in 2012.

The Washington Examiner reports, “Given a chance to do it all over again, only 79 percent of those who voted for President Obama would vote for him again and 71 percent of Obama voters now inclined to vote for somebody else “regret” their vote to reelect the president.

The Economist/ poll found that Obama would lose enough votes in a rematch with Mitt Romney that the Republican would win. “Ninety percent of people who voted for Romney would do it again, compared to only 79 percent of Obama voters who would,” said the poll. The poll also found that among Obama voters interested in voting for somebody else, 71 percent regret their vote.

Here are some interesting stats about the level of regret among different groups:
