ROMNEY CLEANS OBAMA’S CLOCK — 44% to 38%
Obama’s Job approval is freefalling:
“President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has dropped to the lowest point of his Presidency at 39%, and in potential match-ups with Republicans in 2012, he trails Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich and is just one point ahead of Sarah Palin.”
How well does Mitt Romney do among Independents in a hypothetical match up against Obama?
“Among independents, match-ups between Obama and Republicans Romney, Gingrich, Palin and Bush are very close. Versus all of these hypothetical opponents except Bloomberg, Obama draws between 36% and 39% of independents. He beats Bloomberg among independents, 26%-12%, but 49% of independents would choose neither. Obama beats Trump with independents, 36%-29%.”
Mitt Romney also performs well among Republicans in a hypothetical match against Obama.
“Among Republicans, Gingrich leads with 79%, followed by Romney 77% and Palin 72%. One-half of Republicans would choose Trump over Obama, but 43% want neither. Bloomberg would get only 19% of Republicans, with 74% not wanting either the New York City mayor or Obama.”
The reason why Mitt Romney is will be a formidable opponent for Republicans in the primaries and for Obama in the general election in 2012 is that he appeals to more than just his base. Not only do Republicans like Romney but Independents do too.
Go Mitt 2012!!
