  •  Romney = Republicans in this question (0+ / 0-)

    While I think some of these people are no doubt pretty  stupid, more likely, they just hate Obama so much, that given the binary choice of the answers to the question, answering Romney is just a way to deny credit to the president and give it to the Republicans, and have it on record. I admit to doing this very same thing when a pollster asks if I approve of the way the country is headed, for instance. I know that I don't necessarily approve of the direction, but I answer yes, because I know a no answer will ultimately be interpreted against Obama. If the question left room for me to qualify, such as I don't like the way the country is headed, but it's because of Republican obstruction, I would answer differently.
