New poll just came out and Obama has a big lead over the two GOP front runners. Does it really matter who wins the GOP nomination LOL Maybe republicans should start talking about the economy instead of the religious mumbo jumbo.

Obama 53% Romney 43%
Obama 53% Santorum 42%

Don't get to excited, first of all the election is a few months away and seconly, it is a CNN poll for heavens sake. If you really believe a poll showing anyone with a double digit lead is accurate I have some wonderful land on the Rio Grande river I would like to sell you.

What kind of idiot would post a link to something that also had the following in the text?

Quote:
A new national poll from USA Today/Gallup tells a different story. According to the survey, which was also released Monday, Obama and Romney are deadlocked at 47% in a hypothetical matchup, with Santorum holding a 49%-46% margin over the president.

Shhhh...tell him not to look at the demographics, either.

Using a 13 point gap between obama/McCain voters is ridiculous. Let's see, obama won by 7 in 2008 and then got a shellacking in 2010, so what does the pollster do? DOUBLE the number of obama voters in order to get a number he likes.

Oh, Rasmussen AND Gallup show obama losing to both today.

Yes there is a poll showing Obama losing to Paul and Romney. I can't give you the link because my phone is junk. But it was on Andrew Napolitano's Facebook today.
