    Looks like The Republicans have a better chance in 2012 without a candidate than they do with one.

    What about the hypothetical general election matchup in 2012 against President Obama?

    The poll shows Obama topping Romney 53 percent to 45 percent, beating Huckabee 54 percent to 45 percent, defeating Gingrich 55 percent to 43 percent and topping Palin 55 percent to 42.

    "It is important to remember that at this stage of the game, candidate matchups are largely driven by name recognition, and at least a quarter of all Americans are unfamiliar with Romney, Huckabee and Gingrich. As a result, Obama has an 8- to-12-point edge over each of them in hypothetical matchups," adds Holland. "But in a previous CNN poll, Obama managed no better than a tie against an unnamed Republican."

    The headless horseman beats Obama at this point. Not good. In a sense it's not good for either party, when a corpse beats the incumbent, but wipes out living challengers. Who's the winner here? Certainly not the American people, that's for sure.

    It's a sad time in America. :(

    I'm sure he won't run, and I think that if he did, he probably wouldn't win on account of his age, but I wonder how Ron Paul stacks up in a poll.

    That poll isn't necessarily a good thing for Dems though. That means that any Repub with the appearance of intelligence, charisma, and competence can put forth a serious challenge to Obama.

    Interesting results.

    Election 2012: Barack Obama 42%, Ron Paul 41%

    Wednesday, April 14, 2010

    Pit maverick Republican Congressman Ron Paul against President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election match-up, and the race is – virtually dead even.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely voters finds Obama with 42% support and Paul with 41% of the vote. Eleven percent (11%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

    Ask the Political Class, though, and it’s a blowout. While 58% of Mainstream voters favor Paul, 95% of the Political Class vote for Obama.

    But Republican voters also have decidedly mixed feelings about Paul, who has been an outspoken critic of the party establishment.

    Obama earns 79% support from Democrats, but Paul gets just 66% of GOP votes. Voters not affiliated with either major party give Paul a 47% to 28% edge over the president.

    Paul, a anti-big government libertarian who engenders unusually strong feelings among his supporters, was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008. But he continues to have a solid following, especially in the growing Tea Party movement.

    Twenty-four percent (24%) of voters now consider themselves a part of the Tea Party movement, an eight-point increase from a month ago. Another 10% say they are not a part of the movement but have close friends or family members who are.
