2012 Poll: Obama Still Leading All Republican Candidates
John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have a rather whiny little piece in today’s Washington Post that basically says America hates Obama and want him to govern like a Republican.
If that’s the case, in the wake of the 2010 Teahadist Revolution, why aren’t all of the Republican candidates wiping the floor with him?
Obama leads Romney 47-46, matching his generic ballot lead. Obama’s lead expands to 48-45 over Mike Huckabee, 49-43 over Newt Gingrich, 51-42 over Sarah Palin [ed. The Quitter], and 48-37 over Marco Rubio who PPP followers voted in as this month’s ‘wild card’ candidate.
And it’s not just that Obama leads Republicans — Americans really don’t like the Republicans, with the exception of Huckleberry.
Huckabee’s favorability comes out best at a net -1 (39/40). He’s followed by Romney at -6 (36/42), Palin at -17 (38/55), and Gingrich at -20 (33/53).
