6. Do you think Barack Obama deserves to be reelected, or not?
President Obama's job rating is slightly better, though still in negative territory. Forty-nine percent approve of the job he's doing while 50% disapprove. Overall, President Obama's job rating in the RealClearPolitics Average is 47.8% approve, 45.9% disapprove.
The reelect numbers for members of both parties in Congress are slightly worse (41% yes, 56% no for Dems and GOP among registered voters), and the GOP leads the Democrats by 2 points in the generic congressional ballot, 48 to 46. Overall, Republicans lead by 1.5 percent in the RealClearPolitics Averge for the generic ballot, 45.2 to 43.7.

Don't blame me, blame CNN. Why CNN of all places thought to poll this question, I do not know, but that was the answer. "Deserve to be elected" is a lot more damning than "approve or disapprove".
