    You want a real poll just look at where people are putting their money.

    Obama job approval 43.5% average poll numbers RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    Congress job approval 16.0% average poll numbers RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Congressional Job Approval

    President Obama vs. Republican Candidate Obama up 0.5% RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - President Obama vs. Republican Candidate

    President Obama vs. Republican Candidates Obama is 3.1% up on Romney and more than 10% on every other candidate, including Perry. RealClearPolitics - President Obama vs. Republican Candidates

    What is disturbing is not that Obama is doing poorly (that should be expected) but that his opponents are doing worse.

    I would long Obama at this point. You have him competing against . . . a relatively untouched field of Presidential candidates. A frontrunner hasn't morphed into view. There's no doubt I'd vote for a generic Republican against Obama. But some of these other candidates? I don't know.

    The Ear Man is gone in 2013, no ifs. The only issue is if the GOP can turn up someone who is not a RINO.
