New PPP Poll: Obama trails Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich but beats Palin in Missouri

PPP surveyed 515 Missouri voters from November 29th to December 1st. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.3%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

This is not good for Palin.

Once again, she's head-to-head with Romney/Huckabee/Gingrich for the nomination, but SHE CAN'T BEAT OBAMA.

What good is being nominated if you cant win the general?

Zeke, On the contrary. What good is a poll such as this, if you can't win the nom.

Palin is well within the margin of error of a sitting President two years out after get bashed by the media and the GOP establishment 24/7 for two years. Reagan was 25 points behind Carter 8 months prior to the election. I'll stay where I'm at, but thanks anyway.

"What good is being nominated if you cant win the general?" And what good is beating Mr. Obama if you do not have what it takes to promote Conservatism.

Then Why is Palin so less popular NOW than Romney, Huckabee, and Gingrich?

She has fewer undecided as the others in most polls which mean that most people have already made up their minds and less room for her to improve.

WHY, is she running 4th in most polls against Obama NOW!

Right Wingnut said...


All right screw it. Polls two years out are the gospel, I suppose. Forget the primary campaign, never mind Obama's record and favorables over the next two years, forget the campaign for the general.

Once Romney undergoes some scrutiny on a larger scale, he's done.

For me, it's Palin or bust. No squishes this time.

The answer is simple. She not as popular.

Romney either wins or ties for the top spot against the big 4 in these head-t0-heads. He also has the most undecided. Which means, his numbers can go up even further.

"He also has the most undecided. Which means, his numbers can go up even further." and they can go down further especially as people slowly jump off his ship.

I know the Palin-haters don't want to state the obvious. They'd rather try to sell the she cant beat Obama meme but the obvious fact is this...after a long, arduous primary...if Palin wins, more support will fall her way and her and Obama will be either head to head or she will be beating him in a lot of polls.

Well said Jersey. Funny how soon they foget that not too long ago, Mr. Romney and even Mr. Huckabee could not beat Mr. Obama. BTW, they also told us "we cannot win the House." Further, many of the Palin nay sayers were the same characters that said way back that the GOP would never win PA, FL and KY. Funny how they had to slightly revise there tune over the months. The bottom line for me is that even if there is only a 1% chance that Mrs. Palin can beat Mr. Obama, that is good enough for me unless the nay sayers can come up with somebody better.

I cannot wait for Mrs. Palin to become President, than we will see if these nayers will actually move to Canada or some other country. Oh wait, did not some of them say they'd move if Mr. Bush got re-elected.

Palin will beat Obama. Her negatives are based predominately on lies. Obama’s positives are based predominately on lies. The truth will continue to leak out on both of them. Palin will get more popular; Obama will get less popular. And then we have “Madame 45".

Bill,JR and OJ,

You're kidding yourselves. Palin is over exposed already. What many people see, they DON'T LIKE.

A campaign would only give her more exposure (if that's possible. People will like he even less.

They'll be so many crossover votes in states that have open primaries and Independents registering as Republicans, just to stop her.

She ain't winning the nomination if she decides to run.

Bosman, then why spend sooo much of your time bashing her?

The fact is this...the media has mischaracterized Palin and a large chunk of the general public believes the distortions. Hence, why I said, "after a long, arduous primary." A lot of people will then realize that she's not what they thought she was...or not what they were told she was.
