http://news.yahoo.com/cbs-poll-romney-paul-most-likely-defeat-obama-041221751.html Romney and Paul most likely to defeat Obama A CBS News poll published late Monday found that in a general election contest against President Barack Obama, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul would be the GOP candidates most likely to defeat the president. In hypothetical head-to-head match-ups, Romney would defeat Obama by a two-point margin, 47�â45 percent, according to the poll. Paul would come within one percentage point of the president. âRomney and Paulâs relatively strong showings are driven by support from independent voters,â reported CBS News. âThe survey continues to illustrate Ron Paulâs secret weapon that sends establishment insiders into fits: his unshakable and growing appeal across party and ideological lines,â wrote J.A. Pitcher, a staff writer for Revolution PAC, a super PAC supporting Paul.
