  2. Well, that's pretty obvious. With the way things are happening and going now, it would be highly unlikely to get Pres. Obama re-elected. There is just too much dissatisfaction and disappointment prevailing around.

    2012: Huckabee Leads Republicans, Best Against Obama; Romney Leads New Hampshire

    2012: Huckabee Leads Republicans, Best Against Obama; Romney Leads New Hampshire

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) – A new poll from the Public Policy Polling institute finds pro-life former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is the only potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate currently leading pro-abortion President Barack Obama.

    The poll has Huckabee leading by a 47 to 44 percent margin while Obama is ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney 46-43 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich 47-43 percent, former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin 49-43 percent and conservative television commentator Glenn Beck 48-39 percent.

    "Huckabee is the only candidate we polled this month to post positive favorability numbers, at 35/32, the firm said of the possible 2012 GOP candidate. "That’s because he’s relatively inoffensive to Democrats with only 44% having an unfavorable opinion of him."

    "Mitt Romney’s favorability numbers are only slightly negative at 33/35. The rest of the GOP folks are highly unpopular with Beck’s favorability at 31/41, Palin’s at 38/52, and Gingrich’s at 30/50," the polling firm found.

    The poll also asked respondents whether people would vote for Obama in 2012 or vote for his Republican opponent and that came out dead even at 47%.

    The polling firm said that shows Palin and Gingrich are running worse than the average Republican candidate and it says Obama may have a chance to bounce back from what are already seen as weak numbers — indicating a tough 2012 presidential election campaign is forthcoming.

    "The takeaway from this poll is about the same as every month- Obama’s pretty weak but his likely opposition is pretty darn weak too and particularly in the cases of Gingrich and Palin weaker than him," the firm said.

    Meanwhile, Mitt Romney continues to look like the overwhelming early favorite for the 2012 Republican primary in New Hampshire, the second state in the presidential coronation process.

    He leads with 41% to 12% for Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, 10% for Mike Huckabee, 8% for Ron Paul, 5% for Tim Pawlenty, and 2% for Mitch Daniels.
  4. Poll: Obama would rout Palin in 2012

    Barack Obama would rout Sarah Palin in a theoretical matchup in the 2012 presidential election, according to a Bloomberg National Poll released Tuesday.

    The Democratic president led the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee by 16 percentage points, 51 percent to 35 percent, the poll found.

    One in 10 voters said they would not cast a ballot, and 4 percent said they were undecided.

    Palin said in an interview last week she would not likely run for president if voters preferred a more traditional candidate. But during this midterm election cycle, she has been endorsing and campaigning for a number of Republicans across the country, including tea party favorites Sharron Angle in Nevada and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware — a move by Palin that many see as an effort to lay the groundwork for a presidential run.

    Still, Palin’s overall popularity remained low. Only 38 percent of those surveyed said they had a favorable opinion of her, while 54 percent viewed her unfavorably. Meanwhile, 53 percent said they viewed Obama favorably and 44 percent unfavorably.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Obama’s 2008 Democratic presidential rival, had among the highest favorability ratings, with 64 percent viewing her favorably and 31 percent unfavorably.

    Those surveyed were nearly evenly split over whether Obama was doing a good job as president: 47 percent approved and 48 percent disapproved.

    And more than four in 10 who previously backed the president said their support had diminished or that they no longer supported him.

    The poll, conducted for Bloomberg News Oct. 7-10, was based on telephone interviews with 1,000 adults, including 721 likely voters in this fall’s midterm elections. The margin of error was 3.7 percentage points.
  5. Odumba is likely to win in 2012..

    1. "Things" aren't going to get much better, if at all.

    2. Odumba will be able to blame the "stagnation" on the Repubs.

    3. Too many American voters are naive, stupid and greedy.
  6. And thus the Tea Party was born.
  7. Lucrum


    ...and thus your obsession with US politics continues...

    He is a sick fuck. A nasty little curmudgeon.
  9. Whereas you are mental health personified.
  10. When a Congressman or President is sworn into office, they "swear to uphold the US Constitution"... and the prez also swears to "defend the US against all enemies, foreign and domestic".

    Of course, they all violate their oath immediately... especially if there is a Dollar bill anywhere near.

    I'd like to see there be voting requirements....

    1. Citizens must pay at least $1,000 in Federal Income Tax

    2. Citizens must pass an exam on the US Constitution

    That would put an end to much of this horseshit!
