    Election 2012: Generic Presidential Ballot
    Generic Republican Candidate 46%, Obama 42%
    Tuesday, June 28, 2011

    A generic Republican candidate now holds a four-point lead over President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election matchup. It's a fifth week in a row that the GOP candidate has been ahead and the widest gap between the candidates to date.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds a generic Republican candidate earns support from 46% of Likely U.S. Voters, while the president picks up 42% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and nine percent (9%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Last week, the Republican held a 45% to 43% advantage. In weekly surveys since the beginning of May, support for Obama has ranged from 42% to 45%, while the Republican has earned 43% to 46% of the vote. Rasmussen Reports will provide new data on this generic matchup each week until the field of prospective Republican nominees narrows to a few serious contenders.

    Republicans also hold a seven-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending Sunday, June 26. Republicans have led on this ballot every week since June 2009.
  2. Too bad Republicans don't have anyone "generic". They have Palin, Bachmann, Newt.. and Romney (aka Mr Obamacare).

    There is no way you can win this election. Give it up already.
  3. Obama has his October Surprise of 2012 already planned.
  4. Bomb Iran?
  5. Lucrum


    Then all you bleeding heart liberals have nothing to worry about and no reason to keep posting Palin threads.

    Now run along and cash your welfare check before the Treasury runs out of money.
  6. +1 LOL!!!

    "We compared polls produced by major television networks with those produced by Gallup and Rasmussen. We found that, taken as a whole, polls produced by the networks were significantly to the left of those produced by Gallup and Rasmussen."
