Gallup Shock: 'Republican' Tops Obama by 8%
Gallup/Drudge ^ | 7/14/11 | J. Jones

Posted on 07/14/2011 1:41:34 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

Margin marks first statistically significant lead among registered voters

by Jeffrey M. Jones

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters by a significant margin now say they are more likely to vote for the "Republican Party's candidate for president" than for President Barack Obama in the 2012 election, 47% to 39%. Preferences had been fairly evenly divided this year in this test of Obama's re-election prospects.

I suspect running a poll of Obama versus “Anyone Else” would gain double digits.

A bit comforting because Gallup is a left-leaning poll. I imagine the LIKELY voter numbers are even worse for Hussein.

Expect them to double down on the hate index. It's all they got and all they know. No republican candidate's or potential candidate's family member is safe in America today or for the forseeable future.

You're right, 8% is shocking.

Shocking that it's not 40%, I mean.

How bad must it be if “any Republican” is already ahead by a margin greater than the “margin of fraud”.

Ah, but I’m sure Obama and his boys think that Obama will zoom up in the polls once Obama get this debt ceiling issue settled.

Whatever happened to the Bin Laden bounce in the polls?
Some liberals declared the 2012 election was settled right then.

How can a generic Republican be ahead of Obama, when the liberals keep telling us how weak the Republican field is?????

What’s so ‘shocking’ about this?
The only thing I find even remotely ‘shocking’ is that Obamugabe still has ANY support, even in his own party. I guess that 39% of the voters in this country are leeches and parasites..................

Dick Morris says that most undecideds end up voting for the challenger. That puts the score at around Republican 60% and Hussein at 40%.

A lot of people LIKE Obama. A lot of people WANT to vote for Obama.

But, if a trip to the grocery store gets any more traumatic, people will abandon Obama for someone actually capable of doing the job.

Pravda can spin all they want, Obama can lie like he always does, but even the dolts in America understand when a trip to the grocery store is up 50%.

What are you talking about?

You’re not still deluded into the fiction that they are going to raise taxes?

As for McConnell’s odd duck proposal, Boehner was asked about that at a morning presser, asked what he thought about it. He said he understood the idea as being an absolute last resort after everything else has been tried, so he wants it to just sit there on the table while we do other things.

That was a diplomatic answer, but clearly that’s not the way Boehner wants to go.

Note that 50% of people do not pay any federal income taxes.
Note that 40 million are receiving food stamps.
Note that 17 million are receiving disability checks.
Note that there are federal rent subsidies, heat subsidies, free health services to Medicaid including dental care, free translators to those who can’t speak English, day care subsidies, and a gazillion other government aids.

All of the above are likely to favor Obama.

Attention GOP. If Hussien was “winning” the debt limit arguement, he would be ahead of a generic GOP candidate by at least 8%.

Stay the course and have Eric Cantor lead the negotiations.

I don’t think the Race Card / White Guilt is going to be nearly as big of a factor this time around.

There were those who, in 2008, voted for 0bama in order to assuage their White Guilt, and thought that all the racial strife would be resolved,

only to find out that it is worse than ever, and that they got RIPPED OFF for their vote.

The good news is that a significant percentage of those tax-consumers do not vote. What we must do is to ensure that illegal aliens don’t take their place at the polls.

They say people accuse others of what they actually do or would do. Remember Bush caused 9/11? This really concerns me. I would not put it past o or the left to wag the dog to get reelected. He might ask one of his muslin friends to help and I'm sure they would be more than willing to help. If I was a Republican in DC, I would mention that everyone is watching to make sure they/he does not try to cause a crisis.

I hope so.

However, I’ve been fooled before.

I thought the gross racist travesty of justice known as the Simpson trial, would have opened the eyes of some of the cowardly, historically ignorant, deluded fools who suffer from (or indulge in), white guilt.

Well, it is difficult for me to anticipate all of the possible ways that the GOP could cave or self-destruct. They might not raise taxes, but they might continue pushing the McConnell proposal, which will cause civil war in the House, and is unconstitutional on its face.

I’m glad you have more confidence in the GOP leadership. Here’s hoping you are right, and that they stay or become principled, intelligent, and crafty; that they save the government from default, cut government, and don’t raise net taxes. If they do in fact accomplish all that, then they will have our gratitude (and that would finish off Obama, incidentally).

Most of the board members are Dems at Gallup, and the results shocked me.

If they “say’ it’s 8%...then it must be much worse for the kenyan klown.
