With mid-term elections pushing presidential considerations into the ask-me-later department (according to potential presidential candidates), and twists and turns still to be taken on the thoroughfare to the White House 2012, this is still good to hear:
Poll shows Romney has best shot at beating Obama
Former Bay State Gov. Mitt Romney has the best shot at unseating President Obama in 2012, trailing the commander-in-chief by just two points in a new national poll.
The Zogby poll of 8,487 likely voters showed Obama slightly besting Romney 45 to 43 percent. Romney has yet to say if he’s running again but the venture capitalist has been traveling the country raising money for Republicans and handing out endorsements in state races.
The president would fare far better against Sarah Palin, garnering 48 percent of the vote to Palin’s 37. And Obama would beat former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee 46 to 37, the poll found.
Addendum by Nate:
Nice little news report from NECN about the Zogby poll:
