    President Barack Obama only leads a generic Republican candidate by 2 percentage points in a potential 2012 match up, according to a new Gallup Poll out Thursday that also shows a continued drift of independents from Democrats.


    Obama leads 44 percent to 42 percent, a statistical dead heat, against a nameless Republican, according to the survey of 1,025 adults nationwide.


    Not surprisingly, the poll shows that Democrats strongly believe the president should be reelected, while Republicans would like to see one of their own in the White House.


    But among independent voters, 45 percent would back a Republican and only 31 percent would favor the president. Twenty-four percent of independents are not sure if they would vote for Obama or a Republican candidate.

    I'd like to see the results of that poll if they had said Palin instead of generic republican.

    Good news for the GOP I guess, provided they plan to keep their presidential nominees name a secret in 2012.

    VOTE FOR PRESIDENT (check one)

    [ ] Barack Obama - Democrat
    [ ] (Name with held) - Republican
    [ ] Some guy thats better than both of the above but won't win because he's from a 3rd party

    :D

    If the Democrats lose big in the House and Senate this year and the economy picks up, Obama will probably win in 2012.

    Sarah Palin is not going anywhere, it's just something for the left to hope for. There are many qualified independent, fiscal conservatives out there, and more coming. This is what we need to reign in government and get through the Bush and Obama mess.
