    According to recent polling, President Barack Obama leads top Republican presidential candidates, but at least in one match-up, pitting Obama against Mitt Romney, it's within the margin of error.

    Real Clear Politics mashes up several national surveys, including Rasmussen, Quinnipiac, Pew Research, McClatchy, CNN and FOX News, and comes up with what it calls its RCP average. Its most recent compilation shows, among likely voters, Obama leads Romney by less than one percentage point: 45.6 percent vs. 44.7 percent.

    When compared to other candidates, Obama fared much better, with a 5.7 percent advantage over Newt Gingrich, 7.7 percent over Ron Paul, 8.7 percent over Jon Huntsman, 9.6 percent over Rick Perry, 10.2 percent over Herman Cain and 14 percent over Michele Bachmann.

    Who can beat BO means more that who wins in IA, or NH or SC. I actually hope Newt hangs in a few months and then settles on a book tour. The scary part is that if the dems paint the GOP as 1%ers the dems get a lot of votes. The GOP will not win a 60 vote majority in the senate, so Harry Reid has veto power over the GOP agenda.

    A few years ago when the number of idiots in this country became greater than the number of intelligent people, the Democrats started winning. You can't fix stupid so I won't be surprised at all if Obama wins re-election.

    Who would you vote for, Newt or BO? The debates would be terrific. I prefer Mitt <I think> to either. If the GOP doesn't get 60 votes in the senate, nothing happens anyway.

    Mitt would likely win PA, Mich, Va, Nh, Florida, Iowa against Obama. Newt is going to have to fight very hard to win...Anyone more conserative isn't electable.

    What does that say about the GOP candidates if they can't beat a skinny, black socialist communist with a name like Barrack Obama? :lol:

    I'm not going to put any kind of stock into any polls that occur before the GOP is done playing "spin the candidate" and they actually have one...

    :lmao: Looks like Chris doesn't understand error. 0.5% in a poll? :lol:

    Polling Data
    Poll RCP Average
    Date 11/2 - 11/27
    Sample --
    Republican (R) 43.8
    Obama (D) 43.3
    Spread +0.5



    Just as important is what the public views - well beyond error. Well beyond.


    Direction of Country
    Poll RCP Average
    Date 11/2 - 11/27
    Right Direction 19.5
    Wrong Track 73.5
    Spread -54.0


    Yeah, it's looking real promising for Obama. :thup:

    Kinda' this.
    When the Party settles on a candidate we'll see if the electorate will follow.
