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.
