What are you most fearful of hearing in the news during the upcoming year?  Higher taxes?  A depression?  Iran attaining a nuclear weapon?

Well if you’re like a majority of Americans in a new poll, your biggest fear is far, far more menacing.

Three words – Four more years.

According to a new U.S. News & World Report poll, Americans most fear the re-election of President Obama – by a 2-1 margin.

Via Washington Whispers:

When it comes to how Americans view President Obama going into the new year, there appears to be very little spirit of Auld Lang Syne. Instead, according to the new Washington Whispers poll, many voters aren’t forgetting what they dislike about Obama and want him out office.

In our New Year’s poll, when asked what news event they fear most about 2012, Americans by a margin of two-to-one said Obama’s reelection. Only 16 percent said they fear the Democrat won’t win a second term, while 33 percent said they fear four more years.

This, accompanied with a polling drop off in nearly every demographic, is probably news that Obama fears most.
