Time Lies Warner Turner CNN located 4 alsorans to spin a predetermined talking point:

"...finds that President Obama leads four potential foes: Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee..."

Two years before last year’s election was Obama ever the front runner on any poll?

Three years is an eternity in politics. Who thought in 2005 that Obama would be the Dem candidate or that he would win?

It’s a CNN poll of registered 0bama supporters.

In a rational poll, 0bama would barely beat out ground glass and spot remover.

This is a CNN poll-—and I have a feeling that in a couple of years, it will have changed, big time.

IMHO, it’s kinda stupid to have polls out for a presidential election that is a long ways off...........

How can this possible be? The Polls show Obama's approval ratings at all time lows. He's fallen farther and faster than any president in US history. And yet SOMEHOW he's leading all the Republican challengers. Doesn't make sense.

I’m surprised BO is only getting 55% against a few people (all of whom have either been villified or softly suggested by the MSM) and none have even announced they are running for POTUS.

We need a bigger boat!

Bottom line as I see it:

1) Probably a bogus poll. Show me the questions and the actual data with the crosstabs and I can slice and dice it pretty much any way you want.

2) Obama’s approval is below 50% which is the kiss of death forany politician. Not necessarily a forgone conclusion, but any candidate below 50% is considered in trouble.

3) All Republicans are with the MOE, so it actually tells very little. Show me a few polls with the same questions over a period of time, not some goofy flash poll, then we’ll talk.

C’mon people, 2012 is two-and-a-half years away. Most of the contenders for the GOP nod in 2012 will likely not even be people considered frontrunners today. Let’s focus on THIS NOVEMBER.

Why is this shocking to anyone? Sure, Obamarx is a moron and people don’t want to vote for him but the GOP choices are:

Romney - passed Obamacare v 1.0 and couldn’t beat McCain

Huckabee - Really? Seriously?

Gingrich - brilliant guy but is the disgraced/polarizing former Speaker

Palin - best conservative of the bunch but a lot of people have an unfavorable opinion of her.

Obamarx loses in “concept” to an “unnamed Republican” but beats all “real” Republicans that are named as front-runners. Huck, Romney nor Gingrich has a chance of winning. Palin will have to go through a huge metamorphosis with the public to have a chance. The best bet is someone like Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio.

No way a radical/socialist who is outed and doesn’t listen to the voice of the people gets a second term.

Republicans have to run the mother of all turkeys to lose this IMO.

Exactly.

Way too early for this kind of stuff. This is only put out by the media because they like the results or they want to assist in picking the GOP nominee.

Everybody remember Dukakis was up 17% 3 months out.

I read something last week about straw polls. The candidates pay for the delegates to vote in them....it’s a fixed race for the straw poll, they mean nothing. Romney s not it...he’s got too much of his own healthcare baggage. And f the MSM is gearing up now with this BS, they are truly worried.

This poll was done by a Dem polling firm before government run health care passed.
