CNN/ORC Poll: Dem support for Obama’s re-election fades

CNN/ORC Poll: Dem support for Obama's re-election fadesWashington (CNN)Barack Obama’s base is behind another term for the president, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll.

Seven in 10 Democrats say they’d like to see Obama as their party’s presidential nominee next year.

That figure may seem promising, but support for Obama’s re-nomination has fallen 11 percentage points since June.

Despite the decline, history is on Obama’s side. “In 1994, only 57% of Democrats wanted the party to renominate Bill Clinton, and he went on to win the nomination and a second term two years later,” said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

Without a prominent primary challenger, Obama’s bid for re-election seems to be safe for now. But of those losing faith, the poll reveals that moderate Democrats are more likely than liberals to say the party should nominate someone else and younger Democrats are more likely to favor a new nominee than those who are older.

The CNN/ORC International poll was conducted by telephone from August 5-7 among 462 Democrats and independents who lean Democratic. It has a sampling error of plus-or-minus 4.5 percentage points.

CNN’s Rebecca Stewart contributed to this report.
