Obama Beats Palin By 16 Points In Hypothetical 2012 Contest
Yet more evidence to aid to the pile showing that nominating Sarah Palin would be a huge mistake for the GOP:
President Obama would trounce former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) in a hypothetical match-up for the 2012 presidential election, a new poll found Tuesday.’
Obama leads Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, by a 16-point margin, the Bloomberg News National Poll found.
Fifty-one percent of likely voters said they would vote to reelect Obama in a hypothetical match-up against Palin, who drew the support of 35 percent of likely voters.
Ten percent said they likely would not vote in an Obama-Palin contest, and 4 percent said they were not sure.
So at this point it’s fairly clear that if the GOP nominates Palin in 2012, it will be doing so with the full knowledge that doing so virtually guarantees Barack Obama’s re-election. Could they possibly be that stupid? Yea, I think they could.
