  1. Obama leads 2012 field thanks to dissatisfaction with GOP

    Barack Obama has his potential Republican challengers to thank for his early lead in the 2012 race, according to a new poll from Washington Post/ABC News.

    Americans' economic concerns are driving down the president's approval numbers, the poll finds, bringing his current approval rating to 47 percent-- down seven points since January and below the 50 percent benchmark used to indicate political vulnerability. Half of all Americans disapprove of his job performance, with 37 percent saying they "strongly disapprove."

    But due to dissatisfaction with the burgeoning GOP field, the Post writes, Obama is maintaining an early edge in the 2012 race.

    Forty percent of "Leaned Republicans" responded that they are dissatisfied with the Republican field and 43 percent indicated they are satisfied.

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was the only potential candidate listed who received double-digit support when GOP "leaners" were asked to indicate their preferred GOP candidate: 16 percent cited Romney, followed by Donald Trump, who received 8 percent.

    In head-to-heads with the president, Romney also fared best, trailing Obama by just 4 percentage points among all Americans: 45 to 49 percent. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee polled second-best in head-to-head matchups, trailing the president by 6 points: 46 to 50 percent.

    The president led the other five candidates in the poll by double-digits: 12 points over real estate mogul Trump; 12 points over Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.); 15 points over former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; 15 points over former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty; and 17 points over former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
  2. I know the Trump supporters were happy with January polls showing him in a close race with Obama,but reality is starting to set in and its only the beginning.If Trump were to actually run,which he wont,its going to get much worse.Just wait until Trump is actually put through a campaign and he has to get more specific about his polices and his business and personal life is fully investigated
  3. Another poll has Obama beating Trump by 15


    Obama 49%, Trump 34%

    President Obama leads Donald Trump by 15 percentage points in a hypothetical 2012 match-up, but the president is unable to top the 50% level of support even against an opponent some are deriding as a joke.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that the president earns support from 49% of Likely Voters nationwide, while Trump attracts the vote from 34%. Given that choice, 12% would vote for some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Only 65% of Republican voters would vote for Trump over Obama. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 48% prefer Obama, 25% Trump, and 20% would opt for some other candidate.

    Regardless of what Republican is matched against the president, Obama earns between 42% and 49% support. Trump doesn't run as well against the president as the top tier of GOP candidates, but he does pick up more support than insider favorites Mitch Daniels and Jon Huntsman and entrepreneur Herman Cain.

    Unlike several potential Republican candidates, Trump does not suffer from a lack of name recognition. Instead, he suffers from high unfavorable ratings. Most voters (53%) offer an unfavorable opinion of the reality TV star and businessman, including 29% with a Very Unfavorable view of him. Only 39% offer a favorable assessment, with 10% Very Favorable.

    Dude, why are you looking at poll results 17 months ahead of an election. Fwiw, Hillary was killing Obama in the polls this time in 2007 and Giuliani was heavily favored as well.
  6. just wait until the dems start running the "republicans voted to end medicare adds".
  7. That and ending the Bush tax cuts is all the Dems need to win 2012 imo

    That's some pretty deep analysis there.
  9. Hello


    It must make you liberal parasites incredibly proud that you are going to run in 2012, on stealing money from the people who earn in order to pay for those who dont. That is a noble platform you are running on, You guys are nothing more then a bunch of lowlife thieves.

    No cuts to medicare, and tax increases on the rich, its good to know that the pieces of dog shit like Obama actually care about fixing any of americas problems.

  10. I could add that the GOP candidates are jokes but didn't feel it was necessary
