Poll: Romney, Huckabee in Dead Heats With Obama

Will somebody add an A to Obam?

http://www.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/Index


A new national survey, however, has some good news for Republicans Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee in their quest to oust President Obama from the White House.

Romney and Huckabee, both former governors, are in statistical dead heats in hypothetical matchups with Obama, according to a new poll released today by Quinnipiac University.

Romney, the ex-Massachusetts governor, leads Obama, 45% to 44%, while Obama leads Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, 46% to 44%.

Sarah Palin is the top 2012 choice among leaning and GOP voters. But the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee fares the worst against the president: His lead is 48%-40% over Palin.

In an interview with ABC, Palin said she believes she can beat Obama.

CAPTIONBy Jacquelyn Martin, APHuckabee on Sunday made his fourth trip to Iowa since the 2008 presidential race. Our Gannett colleague Tom Beaumont of the Des Moines Register says Huckabee is in no hurry to throw his hat in the 2012 ring,


"Am I keeping the option open? Yes. Am I open to it, considering it and giving, you know, thought? Of course. I think it would be foolish not to," Huckabee said.

Quinnipiac surveyed 2,424 registered voters from Nov. 8-15. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 2 percentage points.
_______________

These early polls are meaningless, but I thought it might be of some interest to our members - probably not.

Romney's problem: He can't get the Republican nomination.

Huckabee's problem: money

Palin's problem: negatives

Isn't that Obama's problem too? Can we just settle the 2012 election with a giant "suck-off"?

The problem is our electoral process generally produces candidates who suck. Honest, forthright candidates who tell us the truth and propose necessary but difficult solutions to the problems we face, are destined to lose.

Have you seen the Get Out of Our House website? I really think it has potential for shaking things up (re: electoral process). www.goooh.com

I'd rather elect someone I know has been vetted by my local citizens rather than a political party who only cares about power. That's what it has going for it.
