Poll: Obama's losing support; Romney would beat him now | McClatchy

Poll: Obama's losing support; Romney would beat him now | McClatchy:
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's approval ratings have sunk to the lowest level of his presidency, so low that he'd lose the White House to Republican Mitt Romney if the election were held today, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.
I think it would probably be a mistake to underestimate Mitt Romney. He did manage to win the Massachusetts election in 2002, but he's going to have to run against his own record on health care reform and I think he's going to have more trouble with his religious affiliation on the national stage than he did in liberal Massachusetts. I'm guessing that as Republicans in the South find out a little more about some of the ... uh ... more interesting aspects of LDS theology, they're going to have some problems with it.  It's C Street Twat Mike Pence I'm more worried about. His odious brand of wealth worshiping church-state unification theology has, I suspect, more selling power with the GOP's fundamentalist base. 

Here's hoping the GOP ends up nominating Sarah Palin in 2012.

  1. I'm pretty sure that Glenn Beck was placed in a prominent position on FoxNews in order to ease conservatives into the notion of Mormons being acceptable. I still think it will be Romney vs Obama in 2012, and I'm fairly confident Obama will win. I just can't picture the Republican base getting excited about voting for Romney.

    Palin will probably be laughed out of the primaries like Guiliani was in 2008, mark my words. Her future is in punditry.
