Early 2012 Presidental PPP Poll has Mike Huckabee With Lead Over Obama, 45% -44%


2012 … No one has even announced and Obama finds himself behind. 2012 cannot come soon enough!

It is obviously way too early to be doing polling for the 2012 Presidential election; however, the present winds of change and political landscape have Barack Hussein Obama in a world of trouble. Although too early, PPP nailed the Scott Brown victory in the Massachusetts special Senate election that caused a political tsunami in Washington, DC and the death of Obamacare.

Public Policy Polling did a hypothetical 2012 Presidential poll and found that Mike Huckabee has a 45% to 44% advantage over President Barack Obama.

Mike Huckabee has a 45-44 advantage over Obama, aided largely by a 44-38 lead with independents. There continues to be no evidence of any negative fallout for Huckabee after murders of police officers committed by an ex-Arkansas inmate whose sentence he had commuted. His 35/29 favorability breakdown is actually slightly better than it was in November before that incident.

Mitt Romney does the next best, trailing Obama 44-42. His favorability is 36/32, and he’s the most popular Republican among independents (41/32). Romney actually matches Huckabee with GOP voters this month and gets over 50%, ending a trend in his numbers that had seemed to spell difficulty for snagging a Republican nomination.

Real Clear Politics has the numbers on how other prospective candidates did in the poll:

Obama 44 – Huckabee 45 – Und 11
Obama 49 – Palin 41 – Und 9
Obama 44 – Petraeus 34 – Und 21
Obama 44 – Romney 42 – Und 15

What will determine if Obama goes the way of the DoDo bird and is a Jimmy Carter one term failure as a President? If Obama continues down the path of liberal my way or the high way, he will not only lose, but he and Senate/House Dems will lose in biblical proportion.

Obama’s policies and his contempt for the American people have come home to roost. If Obama and Dems do not shift course they will be looking at record midterm loses in November.

      Mike is someone with a brain and a heart.
      At least that is the image he protraits.

      Would be nice to see him in a powerful position.

      And just to correct one insult:

      You are not the American people. You do not speak for all Americans. Not even close.

      J.JAY—-Are you the American people. Who is?

      We all are! The collection of all of us are. All of the voters in Massachusetts are and were last week. A representation of both party affiliates of Dems/Reps/Indies across the BOARD.

      So, once again–you are INCORRECT and WRONG at assuming that every poster on this board is a Republican. WRONG ! WRONG ! WRONG! Pay attention.

      Now–on topic of Huckabee. I never really liked the man or paid much attention to him until awhile back a few times, I actually listened to what he had to say and heard him speak on the various issues in depth. I have to agree, I was impressed with his intelligence and many of his positions. I still don’t agree with everything he supports but I have to say that I agree with what you posted and I think that many Americans have underestimated his potential.

      I didn’t say that every poster here is a republican. So please prove me capitalized “wrong” for things I actually say. I didn’t say I am the American people. I said it insults me that the teabagging and pitchfork wielding “we the people” minority include me and a host of other people I know and like in their statements and implicitly draw on their support that is not willingly given or in fact there. So next time, please cry “…So say We Some People!”. It would be more correct and do me all kinds of good…

      #3—This really isn’t about proving you wrong.

      So when you respond next—can you be more specific about who you are referring to as “the teabagging & pitchfork wielding minority”?? I am assuming you are referring to anyone who does not agree with your viewpoints as such? Since I’m from Boston I guess I’ll have to take that as an insult since I happen to like TEA. Don’t you remember the actual reason for uprise and protest for the Boston Tea Party?

      Lastly, I also don’t believe that the Editor of this Website has ever pronounced or claimed that he intends to speak for all of America or Americans. He clearly makes no bones about his political leanings, either—and why should he? It’s his domain. No one said you have to continue to read here or come here if you are so unhappy. Obviously there is a difference between what is posted that is simply Political News, the facts, or just opinion pieces or rants. Most intelligent readers should know the difference and not paint everyone on here with the same broad brushstrokes as you appear to be doing.

      This has nothing to do with agreeing or disagreeing with anyone. That is not my game.
      The phrase “We the people” implies “we, representing the American people” which is wrong.
      And it is an insult because the few that use this cram the others behind their arguments, who argue and discuss in different ways and different levels and have different, less polarizing opinions.
      It is used to give the arguments attached to it more weight that is in fact not there.

      That is the only argument I make.
      I am not generalizing, I am specifying.

      I have nothing against the makers of this blog. They have their opinion, I have mine. There’s a comment button. If I have something to comment, I comment.
      I try to offer a different and moderate viewpoint. If, in your “discussion” you are not interested in differing opinions I am truly sorry.

      The one argument that old forms of media have against the blogosphere, is the danger of forming one sided self serving opinion islands. And, quite frankly, that is what this blog is.

      This has already taken too much of my time.

      #5-J.Jay…Please excuse my ignorance on this one—but when the Constitution was written—how is it that: “We the People” is not supposed to represent “the American People” which is exactly who it was drafted and intended for? I’m sorry, you lost me there. How is that wrong? Are you saying that our Constitutional rights should be afforded to those who are not US Citizens? If so, I completely disagree.

      Also- as far as polarizing opinions go—I hear you there about the blogosphere in general. However, please keep in mind how this site was originally formed and the causes it supports. It was started mainly as a Website for Missing & Exploited Persons. And again, there is a difference between reporting actual News articles in the headlines, political pieces & other opinions & commentary. I was simply stating that I think it is just as unfair for you to do any stereotyping or labeling yourself. Your moderate or different viewpoint will be more accepted here than you think if you just give it a chance.

      Please know that you are encouraged to continue to participate and that all of your opinions are welcomed. I find your honesty refreshing.

      First of all, it’s portrays not protraits you seventh grade moron!

      Second of all, the tea party is not some “minority” movement. In case your have your head shoved up your arse the past few months, you liberal leeches of society are becoming the minority. It’s clear as day!

      The average American person has started this grass roots movement. They do speak the majority of Americans, not blinded liberal welfare collecting people like you. So when they say WE THE PEOPLE, they are correct. You are so in denial its not even funny. Besides who are to say they can not say that….ever heard of free speech you twit!

    8. Scott on January 25th, 2010 11:23 am

      You offer a different and moderate view point? Or are just blabbing the typical liberal left wing zealot rhetoric? I say the latter!

      You offer nothing but the views of Keith Olbermann and that butch scary looking thing Rachael Maddow.

      Your views are in the minority my little boy!

    9. NewGirlBoston on January 25th, 2010 9:30 pm

      #8—- Re: the blabbing the typical liberal left wing zealot rhetoric….{could be the case again ???]….who really knows or better yet, who cares ???? or who I am to say??

      Why I bother even responding to idiot extreme lefties like YoYo is a mystery anways. I will never agree with one thing that whackjob whining Moonbat has to say, ever. People like YoYo make me want to lose my lunch…Ugh!
