Boy, these RCP averaging polls have been dead on so far. President Obama shows up as a STRONGLY supported president despite his economic/financial bungles/scandals & reneging on campaign promises... RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - President Obama vs. Republican Candidate Incredibly, president Obama has GAINED a point more over primary leader Mitt Romney in the last week, increasing president Obama's lead over Mitt from +1.5 to +2.5 but that's still within the margin of error... like this one is CLOSE. The problem is that Mitt can't just match president Obama... for Mitt has to beat him out to take the title. Mitt's problem is his staggering record of flip flops which are so numerous that web sites have popped up dedicated to just Mitt's flip flopping... Mitt Romney Flip-Flops ...like nobody knows which Mitt Romney their really getting. The only other viable primary candidate(Gingrich is having serious problems now) is Ron Paul, at least at current. Ron's a strong contender with a record & word 2nd to none with a 101% proven Constitutional voting record. His non interventionist policy, small government agenda, maximum individual liberties platform, balanced budget & sound value based currency has made Ron an overnight sensation with the constituency, ESPECIALLY the under 35 age group who see nothing in their future but debt. Ron's problem is his staggering age. People I talk to often favor his agenda/platform but wonder if Ron will be pushing daisies before his 1st term is up. I mean it's of such a concern that folks want to know who his VP will be before they will support Ron! Despite president Obama's pro war mentality, world cop/nation building agenda, record debt spending & grow government attitude, he looks to be in the white house to me for another five more years. He's +2.5 OVER Romney at current & +7.7 over Ron Paul as I type... RealClearPolitics - President Obama vs. Republican Candidates ...with all other primary contestants not even close. The majority of Americans say they want an end to the endless wars & debt spending, but see a hawk like president Obama as the way to go, like go figure!
