Obama losing ground to Sarah Palin?

According to a new poll, Obama may be a one-termer. A McClatchey-Marist poll finds that Obama's position is eroding steadily and that even Sarah Palin may be gaining ground.


Poll results show Palin trails Obama by only 5 percentage points, despite the fact she isn't running.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The poll finds that most voters believe that he'll lose the election. A solid group is saying they will vote against him, and most Republican contenders are gaining ground on him.

Sarah Palin was the poll's biggest surprise. While the former Alaska Governor isn't officially running for President, she has been touring the country and promoting herself nonetheless. The latest poll has her only 5 percentage points behind Obama, after trailing him by as much as twenty points earlier in the year.

Palin now leads Obama amongst independent voters, a key swing block.

Its time to close shop. America is done.
No matter who wins as PRESIDENT nothing will ever change.

I will not state the reasons because its pointless.

Individual liberty is gone welcome to end of freedom as we ONCE knew it.

It appears its goint to take another 4 years of OBAMA for the republicans to get rid of the stupid people they want to run in the primaries.

I've drawn conclusions based on what I have seen, read, and heard from various sources, including herself. I take media as one input into the conclusions that I draw, however I have my own thoughts and opinions on economics and other things that are vastly different from hers that influence my opinion of her. My one opinion of her that you might find at least interesting is that I've always felt she was wrongly lambasted for being unqualified as compared to Obama. I think she had 100x more/better experience than he did, she just has plenty of other issues though.

And a side note, I put a lot of thought into my opinion of her because in the beginning I had high hopes, especially when it was rumored that Ron Paul might select her as a running mate if he got that far. You might want to consider thinking more about things before you shoot your mouth off and call people dumb because I could care less about what some reactive immature person on a message board thinks of me, but you look and sound foolish with your response and your statement is more of a negative reflection on your own self than it is on me.

Why don't you check out the latest Ron Paul numbers. 6% in 6th place.

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/publ...ential_primary

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary voters shows Perry with 28% support and Romney capturing 24%. Before Perry entered his first debate, the Texan held an eleven point advantage over Romney, 29% to 18%.
Trailing far behind the frontrunners are former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at nine percent (9%), Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann at eight percent (8%), Georgia businessman Herman Cain with seven percent (7%) support and Texas Congressman Ron Paul who earns six percent (6%). Rick Santorum, former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, draws the vote from three percent (3%) while ex-Utah Governor Jon Huntsman draws support from two percent (2%). Michigan Congressman Thad McCotter comes in with just one percent (1%) of the vote. Another 11% of GOP voters are undecided at this time. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Oh, don't say that. It's kind of like saying that Obama is losing to a perky high school cheerleader who gets straight "C" averages.

I'm sure she'd make a fine PTA leader or president of a Home Owner's Association, but for goodness' sake, she's just not intelligent to lead this country. Even if there have to be Republicans and Tea Partyers running for high office, there are plenty of them smarter and more informed than her .... it shows the poor education of the current conservative electorate that they'd even consider someone for President who wouldn't have been fit to serve coffee to someone like Eisenhower.
