Obama Crushes Perry In New Poll
The Business Insider ^ | 10/12/11 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 10/12/2011 3:35:02 PM PDT by perfect_rovian_storm

A new Rasmussen poll is pouring salt on Texas Gov. Rick Perry's wounds.

The struggling one-time front-runner is now trailing President Barack Obama in a head-to-head matchup 49 percent to 35 percent. Obama was leading Perry six or fewer points in two recent Rasmussen polls — and Perry narrowly polled ahead of Obama in early September.

Perry would fare worse than businessman Herman Cain, who in a poll last week trailed Obama 42 percent to 39 percent. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney polls even with Obama — the best of the Republican presidential candidates.

Neither of them are going after Romney. Cain even played it up before the debate how he was going to go after him. Couple of softballs. How obvious.

I trust Rasmussen, but it just shows how fickle and shallow people are.

There is this new thing catching on that you might want to look into, it’s called a “sense of humor” and I really, really think that you would benefit from one.

Pitiful...you compare missing Uzbekistan to not knowing that the Revolution was fought in the 18th century. Nice try.

Don’t include me in that group of ‘many’. However, I can assure you that I don’t give a flying f what anyone says, I will go to the polls and vote for whoever wins the primary. I will not sit home. I want that bastard OUT in 2012! Romney is a sorry SOB but if he wins the primary, I will do as Sarah Palin said.... ANYONE BUT OBAMA.

I get the impression from many Freepers’ posts that.................. they'd rather see Obama re-elected, over Perry.
You know better than that. I'm a Cain supporter. But, I'd vote for a blind, three-legged, retarded dog before I'd vote for Obama.

What did he say?

But why would Perry say that the American Revolution took place during the 16TH CENTURY? Do you guys ever go out of your state and look around?

I was mocked by a couple of Texans last week for saying Maine was a gorgeous state! But at least folks Down East know what century the Revolution was fought in.

Perry has two large obstacles to overcome, one is the media which has been constantly putting him down, and the other is FR.

I believe him to be a strong conservative and a good candidate.

Yeah, I do. Both were slips. Both knew the answer but said it wrong.

So you’re completely ok with Cain whoring himself to be Romney’s VP if he can’t get the nomination? Tells me a little bit more about Mr. Cain than I knew before.

Too bad you’re going to get Willard as your nominee...lol

Prove that the media has been putting him down...because, haven’t heard it. The reason he is floundering is of his own doing.

What you said, plus I really, really have a hard time believing the Kenyan gets 49% against a cockroach.

I didn't know much about him before he got in the race. I figured, given his credentials, that he would be an acceptable nominee. I've now reached the conclusion that he just isn't very good at anything, and is horrible beyond description at simple debating. He is not too talented and, seemingly, not too bright. He should withdraw before embarrassing himself further.
This native Texan could ot have said it better myself.

LOL..I just watched the video. I was going to post it here, but I just can’t do it.

The worst part is him stammering through that whole lot of nothing he was saying. It’s like listening to a lecture from some relative who had way too much to drink.
