More Polling Trouble for Obama … Loses to Romney and Tied with Perry in Gallup Poll


What Barack Obama did on his summer vacation, played golf, went to Martha’s Vineyard and saw his polling numbers completely collapse.

More bad polling data for President Barack Obama. The latest Gallup poll in a hypothetical match up between GOP contenders has Obama losing to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Obama tied with current Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Obama within the margin of error with US Reps. Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann. Making matters worse, Obama loses Independents to all contenders except Bachmann. Making matters even more worse than that, the incumbent President does not poll at 50% or above against any challenger. In a dead heat against a challenger when the incumbent polls below 50% … the incumbent loses.

President Barack Obama is closely matched against each of four possible Republican opponents when registered voters are asked whom they would support if the 2012 presidential election were held today. Mitt Romney leads Obama by two percentage points, 48% to 46%, Rick Perry and Obama are tied at 47%, and Obama edges out Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann by two and four points, respectively.

Is it that shocking that Obama is viewed in such a bad light? Not at all. Not when Obama has a job approval in the low 40′s and an economic job approval rating in the 20′s.

      You did not mention the latest Rasmussen poll. Everybody is talking about the PAI being -26 but I don’t think their looking at the important numbers. The ones that strongly disapprove of bho now are at 45% and the combined total of those that approve of BHO are only 44%. That stat tells the real story.
