Obama Sinking in Polls … Losing Ground to GOP, Obama Leads Palin by Just 5%



Yet more bad polling data for President Barack Obama. Not only is Obama’s job approval and favorability rating sinking fast in the polls, Obama is also losing ground in head to head match ups against potential 2012 GOP Presidential candidates. Hey Democrats, guess who had the biggest gain on Obama … that would be Sarah Palin.  She previously trailed Obama by more than 20 percentage points earlier this year; however, Palin now trails the Obama by just 5 points, 49% -44%.

Look out President Barack Obama. Even Sarah Palin’s gaining on you.

A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds that Obama looks increasingly vulnerable in next year’s election, with a majority of voters believing he’ll lose to any Republican, a solid plurality saying they’ll definitely vote against him and most potential Republican challengers gaining on him.

Even in potential matchups where he leads, Obama in most cases has lost ground to the Republican.

Michelle Malkin references some of the other hypothetical matchups. There appears to be an obvious trend … ANYBODY BUT BARACK. Hey America, how’s that “Hopey, Changey” stuff working out for you these days?

Obama is neck and neck with Romney, leading by 46-44. Obama had led by 5 points in August, 4 points in June, and 1 point in April. Romney now leads among independents, 44 percent to 40 percent.

Obama leads Perry by 50 percent to 41 percent. They split independents 43-43. Obama had led Perry by 19 points in August, as Perry was joining the campaign.

      Oh, how I wish Sarah Palin would run. We desperately need someone with her character in the White House.

      Sarah Palin is a true beauty = inside and outside!

      She is almost hindered by her attractiveness because people (especially men) take her less seiously.

      Her glasses offer a “librarian effect”; most women look for ways to appear more attractive, but Palin is seeking to be taken more seriously – by diverting attention from her beauty so that people will listen to her ideas and take her seriously as a political figure… Remarkable.

      Real beauty comes from within. Sara is beautiful on the outside because of her inner beauty.

      Real men are not afraid of a woman who has these qualities.

      yes, she is very beautiful indeed and i am a woman.

      sarah knows the price of milk in the grocery store, she knows how to raise her kids, clean her house.

      please get in the race sarah! however, i don’t care who is on the gop ticket, i will vote for them.

      obama and his ant-American,evil, ilk, need to go!

      #2, listen little miss “nobody but barack”, the gop is divided by how many possible candidates right now? You can’t figure out that after the primary what the percentages will be when it will be one gop candidate against obama?

      #2-@ Yoyo—Stupid is also strong in Congress spending $16.00 for a muffin! $10.00 for a brownie and $5.00 for a can of Coca-Cola…but what else should Americans expect in this TAX TAX TAX & SPEND Administration?

      Did you pass Mathematics in Elementary School, Yoyo—DO THE MATH! Our Credit rating has never, repeat NEVER since it’s inception been downgraded UNTIL your Boy Obama took the helm.

      After almost 4 years, it’s time to stop blaming the GOP for everything. I don’t want to see a run of the mill candidate with the same outdated ideology take office net year either—what is the alternative, Yoyo?

      Forget about party lines—this time—let’s chose a candidate who can simply stimulate this economy instead of putting us all further in debt and running our Country in to the ground.

      Just for the record, Ms. Palin is better off where she stands currently as well. As soon as she opens her mouth —Libtards like you quietly crap in your drawers. Your skin cringes….why? Is everything Sarah is saying 100% incorrect?

      I think not!

      yoyo: still plugging for your boy i see. it’s a waste of your time. obama is done. all he has accomplished is to promote racial hatred,and flash mob violence, no jobs created, wasting money by the trillions, which your children will suffer for as if they haven’t suffered enough from having a democrat as a parent.
      we will see a new president in 2012. i guess if it was Herman Cain you would still cry your long dead racism excuse ?
