Poll: Obama would beat Perry (& Palin) in Texas but lose to Ron Paul & other Republicans (PPP)
The Houston Chronicle ^ | June 30, 2011 | Lauren French

Will the Lone Star state turn blue in 2012?

It isn’t likely — unless Gov. Rick Perry jumps in the ring and clinches the Republican nomination, a new poll from the Public Policy Polling group found.

In the poll’s match-ups, President Barack Obama loses Texas to every notable Republican except Perry and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If the ballot came down to Perry and Obama, 47 percent of poll respondents said they would vote for Obama. Forty-five percent said they would cast a ballot for Perry.

The most elected Republican in the poll? Mitt Romney.

The poll found that Obama would garner 42 percent of the Texas vote to 50 percent for the former Massachusetts governor. The president trailed Texas Rep. Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, by 5 percentage points, 40 percent to 45 percent.

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann leads in Texas, 47 percent to Obama’s 44 percent. Obama also loses to former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty by 1 percentage point.

Obama would beat out Palin for the state with 46 percent of respondents casting a ballot for his second term and 44 percent voting for Palin.....

YOU LIE!! All the so-called "losers" are within the margin of error. Another misleading headline to hurt Gov. Palin and help Gov. Romney. How many thousands does this make now?!

I'm not willing to pretend that Romney is a republican.

Obama will not win Texas over Perry. If any poll says that, the poll is bunk

If they polled only Sheila Jackson Lee’s district.

This may be the biggest bullshit whopper out of a commie since... 1917.

Texas is one place that recognizes Bovine Excrement when they see it. I think maybe they are seeing it from the Houston Chronicle.

No way Mr. Obama would beat any of those named, not even Milt. Barry will be lucky to carry Washington, DC and California.

The only poll that really counts is the one on November 6, 2012. :-)

"Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann leads in Texas, 47 percent to Obama’s 44 percent."


While I take any poll that has Obama beating Perry in Texas with a grain of salt, I found this interesting. One of the raps against Bachmann is that she is not electable.

With a margin of error of 3.5%, all those GOP candidates or potential candidates named are tied or beating him!!

She isn’t, which makes this poll one of most laughable yet of all the crap being pushed around lately.

Wrong. The primaries matter most.
