Unbelievable.



Poll: Obama rebounding with voters, would beat GOP rivals .
By STEVEN THOMMA
McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama has bounced back from his low point after November's elections and enjoys stronger support heading into the 2012 election cycle, particularly against Sarah Palin, according to a McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll released Thursday.

Obama's fortunes appear to be rising along with the country's. The poll found a jump in the number of people who think the country's heading in the right direction. Also, the president probably benefited from the productive post-election session of Congress.

"Obama's standing on far firmer footing," said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion at Marist College in New York, which conducted the national survey. "It puts a different hue on the 2012 elections."

The president's rating improved on several fronts, including job approval, how many like him personally and whether they think he'll do better in the next two years. His strengthening appeal was most noticeable in how he matches up against three potential Republican rivals.

Today Obama would beat Republican Mitt Romney by 51 to 38 percent, the poll showed. In a December McClatchy-Marist poll, he trailed the former Massachusetts governor by 46-44 percent.

Obama would defeat Republican Mike Huckabee by a similar margin, 50-38 percent. In December, the president led the former Arkansas governor by only 47-43 percent.

And he'd crush Palin by 56-30 percent. A month before, he led the former Alaska governor by 52-40 percent.

In each case, Obama owes his lead now to a unified base of support from Democrats and an edge among independents, who prefer the president by 10 points against Romney, 5 points against Huckabee and 28 points against Palin.

Is this an upswing due to the AZ shooting?  Much the way Bush got a huge bounce after 9/11?

A current president should almost always be considered a favorite before a re-election bid.

They are publicly well-known and people knows them well.

That's why all one-termers IMO come across as somewhat of disappointments.

Add Al Gore to this category, who managed to lose his bid against George W Bush, despite having the record of Bill Clinton to back him up.

It's a huge advantage going into presidential debates and what not if you're "The Man".

So there's IMO a lot of pressure on Obama.

Whoever is picked as the GOP candidate just have everything to gain, nothing to lose.

Gas prices, ue, inflation, obamacare, etc will be the issue. 

The hope and change crap won't work. 

Regardless, anyone voting for this asshole again deserves to be put in the same rubber room along w eric fuller.

  Which is what will happen is Parasailin' is the nominee. From the looks of that poll, though, that thankfully won't be the case.

Agree.

Whether she hurts or helps the GOP is an open question. Regardless, she should do whatever she feel is right.

Palin has quite a few supporters. And will be a factor regardless of what role she choose to play in the Presidential Election.

Where do you come up with bullshit like this?

Just because certain people will vote for Obama, Palin, Huckabee, Ron Paul or whoever doesn't make them lunatics.

Total BS.

Of course, you've always been a few cards short of a full deck too, Eurotrash.  Roll Eyes Anyone who would vote Palin or Paul for president is a certifiable lunatic.
