41% of Americans don't remember who Obama ran against in 2012

Kind of a funny fact, CNN is saying a recent survey was given and roughly 41% of Americans can't remember who Obama ran against. Then did speculation of what this means for the RNC.

Paul Buyan and R. Money, wasn't it?

Of course they don't remember because they were too preoccupied with the idea that Obama was going to bring over all his Muslim terrorist friends to kill us all.

A lot of people didn't know who Obama was running against during the 2012 election.

Some old man whose name begins with an R and yeah, he was Mormon, wasn't he?

Seriously, it was a sad show for the Republican ticket, and I wanted Obama out so badly, but with such a lousy canidate, it's no wonder they couldn't win the election. Obama's done more harm to this country than anyone since Roosevelt!

Possibly 16 years of Democrats "at the throne", you figure?

8 years with B. Obama, followed by another 8 years with H. Clinton ...

If she runs in 2016 (which many predict is a done deal) ... - very strong possibility this is happening, almost a given ....

Voters historically don't remember and probably don't want to. They look forward, and want to know who's going to give them their dreams.

Is this 41% of Americans who voted? Because only 57% voted in the 2012 election.

Guilty.

It was John Kerry. He lost, which is why he is now Vice President.

Too true to be a joke. One of my best friends teaches at an inner city community college and it's depressing how many of his students thought Obama was running against Sarah Palin last year. A month or so out from the election, not a single person in one of his classes knew who Mitt Romney was, at least by name.
