Poll: Republican voters oppose a 'brokered' convention

Quote:
Meanwhile, President Obama's standing against two potential Republican rivals has ebbed a bit. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney leads the president 50%-46% among registered voters, Romney's strongest showing against him to date. Obama edges former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum by a single percentage point, 49%-48%.

The fact that Santorum is tied with Obama is truly and utterly scary.

That's a great. With the mess that has been made out of this nomination race, Obama should be soaring right now.

Its really not a mess. The candidates are being vetted, unfairly by the media at times, all in an effort to make the republican nominee "unelectable" in the eyes of the electorate. It won't work.

They did the same with Reagan and GOP primary candidates before 1980 election.

Just think - all this stuff is coming out now...in the late summer/fall, it will be ALL about the economy and obama's glorious record.

Most are happy to see their roller-coaster campaign continue: 57% say the battle isn't hurting the party.
I love how they bury the real story - obama is once again well shy of 50% and losing to Romney.

Unless its Santorum and it will be all about gays, gays, gays, and gays. The Republican Party will be making the mistake of the century if they nominate Santorum. Obama is a very beatable candidate with an indefensible record. Obama has had four years to show at least some improvement on the economy and so far we have seen NOTHING other than the Dow recovery which is largely due to Bernanke and his money printing.

But the last one on the list is the important one, and Obama isn't winning. That is the poll that will mimic the general election because people will only have 1 candidate to choose from. Playing devil's advocate, as a republican voter I only want to make MY candidate look good and I will stick to my guns. But when there is only 1 GOP candidate to choose from, my vote will go his way, just as the last set of polls shows.

But.....obama is against gay marriage too, isn't he?

And no, even though the media would like to keep to the social issues, it won't happen. This election will be about one thing - OBAMA'S RECORD.

A national poll is not really useful and will become less so in the months ahead. Look to the individual state polls.
