Generic Presidential Ballot Election 2012: Generic Republican Candidate 46%, Obama 42%


More bad polling news for President Barack Obama. In the most recent Rasmussen Generic Presidential Ballot Election 2012, the generic GOP candidate beats Obama 46% to 42%. Hardly a good thing when you cannot even beat a unnamed opponent. With a never improving economy, where only 24% of Americans think that we are headed in the right direction. Obama was elected in 2008 to provide “Hope & Change” and fix the economy. he has done neither.

A generic Republican candidate now holds a four-point lead over President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election matchup.  It’s the fifth week in a row that the GOP candidate has been ahead and the widest gap between the candidates to date.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds a generic Republican candidate earns support from 46% of Likely U.S. Voters, while the president picks up 42% of the vote.  Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and nine percent (9%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The polling numbers get even worse and can explain why Barack Obama is going to have a difficult time in gaining reelection. 55% of Americans want to repeal Obamacare, 75% do not believe that we do not do enough to develop its gas and oil resources. Not only will Obama be hard pressed to gain reelection, one has to wonder how his economic, energy and spending policies are not going to adversely affect other Democrats running for reelection in 2012.

      Generic candidates don’t get to take part, so easiest four more years in history!
      SM: Really? Ever seen the generic Congressional poll that does the same? Guess what it showed in 2010 when the GOP won big over the Dems and took back the House and nearly the Senate?

      What this tells as is that no matter who the Republican is, the registered voters want no part of Obama.

      #1: if he makes it in 2012, it will be the most miserable time of his miserable life. he is already ignorant to the way of America.of course, any illegal would be. hcouldn’t fix a sandwich, much less this country. your hope is false as he has already shown his weak minded followers that he is incapable as a president and a person.
