Skip to comments.CNN Poll: Romney tops Obama but loses to Clinton
Posted on 07/27/2014 12:35:13 PM PDT by markomalley
If a rematch of the 2012 presidential election were held today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney would top President Barack Obama in the popular vote, according to a new national survey.
But a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that if Romney changes his mind and runs again for the White House, Hillary Clinton would best him by double digits in a hypothetical showdown.
The survey, released Sunday morning, also suggests that more Americans see Clinton as a strong and capable leader than those who feel the same way about Obama. But Clinton's numbers on five personal characteristics have slightly edged down the past few months.
And the poll points to a jump the past month in support among Republicans for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

when is Willard going to comment on his little illegal alien buddies steaming through the border ???
Yeah crickets from that corner...
For the life of me, I can’t understand why any person would think Hildabeast would make a good elected official in any capacity.
How nice. CNN polled it’s employees. Yawn. I guess the MSM started the push for Hitlery..
At this point my cats are polling better than 0bama, and I’d rather the GOPe tried to nominate them than Romney.
Since he will surreptitiously have his surrogates
stab every conservative in the back anyway,
a Romney/RomneyCARE/Cantor 2016 announcement THIS WEEK
would represent the GOP’s honest best.
This is why TED CRUZ needs to come out front and DECLARE himself the AMERICAN candidate for 2016...We have got to STOP waiting for the GOPe to push their guy onto us!
I just hope whoever gets the R nomination isn’t afraid to go after Hillary Clinton on her disgraceful performance on the Benghazi issue. Romney was toast when he didn’t pursue it against Obama.
How many of you freepers don’t hang up on pollsters.
“For the life of me, I cant understand why any person would think Hildabeast would make a good elected official in any capacity.”
Because she is a woman, and they are smarter, more compasionate, fairer, blah blah blah...
“But a CNN/ORC International poll.........”
Stopped reading right there.
Most democrats are committed communists. You could run a shi! can and they would vote it in. The only chance we would have is with Cruz and then we would have to get the Senate and keep the House. Most Americas are probably the dumbest nitwits on the planet when it comes to what gave them the freedom they enjoy and how to keep it.
Why does the MSM concentrate on losers! These people are past tense for American Government. Let’s see some new blood! Clintoon is not even a good candidate for garbage collector! And Romney has shown he has no balls in a debate with a non performing community organizer with 4 years of Presidential OJT with no result other than empty the treasury and try recover with a new tax called the ACA!
CNN, oh yes, what credibility they have.
I don’t care.
Well, those results show there’s still work for the GOP to do. One of those things is finding a good non-RINO candidate with real leadership skills.
And so begins the Jedi mind tricks.
better yet- how many Freepers actually ever received a call from a political pollster??? they know your/our political affiliation and probably know your/our voting habits and donation history....you really think they are interested in having us take part in their “scientific” poll???
After Clinton beat H.W. Bush in 1992 and the Reagan/Bush years were done, Romney reregistered Republican in October of 1993, deciding that he would enter elective politics as a Republican instead of democrat.
In his more than 20 years of running, he has won a single election, didn’t reach 50% in that, and after polling for reelection, he gave up that dream and left office with 34% approval, and after 4 republican governors in a row, he turned Massachusetts over to a democrat.
Let’s regain the Senate first.
Ted has lots of time.
People voted for someone because his skin is black, why not vote for someone because they have a vagina. It’s just as stupid.
I would vote for your cats...
Well, that settles it: Hillary is inevitable. Figures, too, given the incredible job she did as Secretary of State.
Run Liz Run.
Possible scenario: The far left of the Dem party, as they did in 1972, swings the nomination to the most left-wing candidate in this case Lizzie Warren.
Warren gets clobbered in the General.
Another worthless poll.....I assume it is not likely voters and being over two years out makes any poll worthless.
> I would vote for your cats...
Maybe you should tell Reince Priebus.
Never been polled once. I’d have fun with them if I ever do.
I replied patiently to one telephone pollster’s questions back in 2011. He must have figured out I was conservative, I could tell he was unhappy with most of my responses, so he paused and actually asked me if I “cried when McCain lost.”
I told him to f*** himself sideways & the interview was concluded.
You don’t really believe polling is straight up do you?
Not only that, but for the life of me, I can’t see why anybody would think Romney would make a good president.
I’d vote for the Sammich before Mittens
You do know, as we all do. It's because the Democrats have 1) done a great job inciting and exploiting class, gender, and race divisions, and 2) been able to effectively shift the voting demographics in enough states to make them competitive in any Presidential race.
Honestly, some in the Republican party understand that the only way to nullify this without essentially becoming a Democrat is to put up candidates that divide the Democrats coalition. That's why there is so much emphasis on Republicans with a Hispanic background. Personally, I would absolutely love to see Benjamin Carson run. First of all, he's qualified, principled, and he's very bright. I hate thinking the way Democrats do, and I abhor racial and gender politics, but he would likely peel away some of the African American base from the Democrats. Further, he would possibly attract some of the traditional liberal academic crowd. Anyway, running Romney again would be a huge mistake.
Can Romney beat Romney? Every pronouncement since he lost has convinced me he would have been a major disappointment.
Turn out is the key in 2014.
Nationally, the Democrats have enough legal voters to stop the Republicans from gaining a Senate majority.
If the Democrats can figure out how to get their non-white voters to the polls, we will come up 2 to 4 seats short in the Senate.
I'm not pro-Romney by any means, but there's one thing about him that I like: he is a businessman. That's the same thing I like about Herman Cain.
I'm tired of lawyers running for office.
In my post #41 I noted that at least Romney is a businessman, and not a lawyer. I just now looked it up, it turns out that he a lawyer as well as a businessman. One cancels out the other. Romney is back to being a zero again.
Why do I believe this poll, given CNN’s history. First of all, nobody can defend Obama anymore, except the MSNBC and HBO comedians. But, even though Clinton is tanking with the intelligentsia, the huddled masses can still be led by the nose to the Clinton horse trough.
who cares what CNN says?
CNN polls...CNN viewership?
This is moot. Romney has declared that he is not going to run.
Still at least he is a business man.
He would have been far better than Obama.
The longer Cruz waits to declare, the less time the sewer rats have time to attack him.............
On step at a time, regain the senate first, Launch Ted to stardom in the senate....
Right you are. Many conservatives (including me) weren't motivated to support Romney in 2012, so we stayed home. That was foolish.
And I suppose we'll see a repeat of that in 2016. The GOP will nominate some elitist, we'll stay home, and the country will suffer.
