Posted on 04/13/2010 12:53:34 PM PDT by DM1
A new CNN/Opinion Research poll tests some 2012 general election matchups for the first time, and finds that President Obama leads four potential foes: Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee.
2012 Presidential General Election Matchup (907 RVs, 4/9-11, MoE +/- 3.5%) Obama 53 -- Romney 45 Obama 54 -- Huckabee 45 Obama 55 -- Palin 42 Obama 55 -- Gingrich 43

Huckabee? Oh please. These guys really love pushing their crap.
The Huck, you say?
Even the poll of all polls has obama at only 46% approval..
So they want me to believe that nearly 10% of people who don’t approve of Obama will vote for him?
Lordy...I have been in a hopeful state, waiting for 2012. Now..if this is really what the nation feels...we are down the drain.
My favorite would be Gingrich.
And Mit is the worst candidate we could possibly have in 2012 because of the past in regards to healthcare.
Palin is probably our only hope among the “known” candidates.
But I honestly think several new faces will enter the race and own Obama, in particular Governor Perry of Texas. A Perry/Palin ticket would destroy Obama.
Not by much and this poll is BS. The actual nominee isnt listed there.
Sorry but rcp is manipulated by certain media polling and it is designed to keep the kenyan ahead. Bank on it.
I can understand her numbers, but Hillary’s surprise me. If Obama stays low in polls and gas prices increase, I would not be surprised if she runs.
The poll probably only included CNN viewers
obama will never see 50% in polling or voters... man this is all bullsh!t and nothing more.
Front page news in todays Ar/Dem/Gaz says Janet Huckabee now calls the Florida Panhandle "home". She has a Florida Driver's license and says she is a "bona fide resident of Florida".
Yep, they still own the mansion in North Little Rock, but golly day..gee whiz..how can they divide their time between AR,NewYork and Florida?
They're renting a 4,500 sq foot Beach home in Miramar Beach (Destin Area). It's an old trick to declare residency in a State that doesn't have State Income Tax, and so The Huckster and his family aren't above taking advantage of it.
He's not going to get much support from Arkansas...but the press loves this loser.
how can that many say they think the country is in the wrong direction and then have that many saying they approve of his job performance
So they found a sample 57% approve of Obama?? A 15 point skew. Pathetic.
In this poll 57% approve of Obama.
State Run Lame Stream Media. Utter BS. How can Obama be leading? and have low approval numbers?
Don’t sweat it for three reasons.
1. The election is a long, long way off.
2. Polls mean dick.
3. CNN polls mean dickless.
Here is an interesting tidbit. The polls shows only 30% of the respondents thought Sarah Palin was qualified to be President but in head to head polls she is within 4 net points of both Huck and Mitt among REGISTERED VOTERS polling 42% against 55% for Obama.
So only 30% say she’s qualified but 42% would vote for her. Hmm.
