Rasmussen - If the 2012 presidential election were held today, President Obama and possible Republican nominee Mitt Romney would be all tied up at 45% each, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. The president, seeking a second four-year term, beats another potential GOP rival, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, by six points: 48% to 42. . .

Palin is second only to Romney as the presidential candidate Republican voters say right now that they'll vote for in 2012 state GOP primaries. But she's also one of two candidates they least hope wins the party's nomination. . .

Men prefer the Republican over Obama whether it's Romney or Palin, while women like the president better in both match-ups. Palin continues to fare more poorly among women than her male rivals.

This shouldn't be a surprise. Obummer sold what he had no intention of delivering, and is now proving that he's just another oreo. Only the rabidly partisan and the terminally hard-of-thinking would vote for him again.

Only a complete idiot would vote for Palin for any office against anybody. Even Dan Quayle would be better. This survey certainly shows how stupid the average American is.

Obama has supported and continued every one of W's abysmal policies. With the corporate twin parties in power, it matters not which figurehead sleeps in Jefferson's bed.

Obama is already too liberal for his election. If he was more aggressive he'd be losing to Mark Sanford.

Obama won because he got the independents on Iraq. The realignment towards the Democrats is an illusion.

well, basically, I agree with wellbasically...Obama barely won, really. I know pundits and Warshington insiders like to think that a few percentage points is a massive win, but the only real landlsides are in highly Rep or Dem districts. The Democrats in Congress hardly hold a solid lead. Everything could change in '10.
