Obama 39%, Paul 38%


The president and the maverick are running almost dead even in a hypothetical 2012 election matchup.

Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul earns 38% of the vote to President Obama’s 39% in the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters. Fourteen percent (14%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) remain undecided.

Just a month ago, Obama posted a 41% to 37% lead over Paul, who ran second to Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the recent high-profile Ames Straw Poll in Iowa.

Still, Paul, popular with many in the Tea Party movement, runs better against the incumbent than another Tea Party favorite, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.Obama leads Palin 50% to 33% among all likely voters, making her the only potential GOP candidate to date against whom the president’s support has risen out of the 40s.

Its not a question of can we do it but a statement that we WILL do it.

Put aside the media mantras and lets continue the fight.

We are winning and we will win.

Too glean anything meaningful from that, you would have to poll all the other Candidates against Obama. Not long ago Rasmussen posted one where an unnamed Candidate did better than Obama and got higher numbers than Paul against Obama. What does that mean to you?

Rasmussen is not a valid polling firm. Was rated (by Nate Silver - the best) one of the worst in the 2008 and 2010 elections. I mean, get all excited if you care to, but Rasmussen is predictive of NOTHING.

On a Generic Republican vs Obama Ballot, the Republican wins 48% to 43%.

That means Paul scores lower than a Generic Republican. His name deducts 7%. So what does that mean? Just adding his name drives voters away?

It may mean that the unnamed candidate was....
Ron Paul.

Actually this far out, none of the Polls mean much of anything. They do make interesting reading when we have nothing else to do though.

That makes no sense since adding his name reduced the Republican vote by 7%. It did not increase the number? They will likely run Perry soon and it will be interesting to compare. I wonder if Rasmussen takes requests?

They made mention of the other candidates, Ron Paul lead all of them with the exception of Romney who was statistically tied, but I dont think Ron Paul was included in those polls.


Still, Paul, popular with many in the Tea Party movement, runs better against the incumbent than another Tea Party favorite, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.Obama leads Palin 50% to 33% among all likely voters, making her the only potential GOP candidate to date against whom the president’s support has risen out of the 40s.


Obama would enjoy a modest 44% to 39% lead over Texas Governor Rick Perry...

A separate survey shows that if Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is the nominee, Obama holds a 46% to 39% advantage.

Data released yesterday shows that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is in a toss-up with the president: Romney 43% Obama 42%.

goo.gl...

A Generic Republican is a composite, when you get specific the number will always drop off. Does ANY specific Republican score higher than 48 against Obama?
No.

Nate who?

Regardless, polls are used as an indicator, incessantly quoted by the media and Rasmussen is a well known firm.

What do you think of this one?

I thought we witnessed enough of these polls to realize these stats are unreliable due to discriminatory voting as well as rigging numbers. Maybe this is an exception.
