PPP Polling: Obama losing handily to all but Palin statewide

You can add Nebraska to the list of 'Sarah Palin swing states.' She leads Barack Obama there by only a single point at 45-44.

If the Republican candidate for President next year is any of the other current front runners the state should remain in the red column where it's been reliably for years. Newt Gingrich leads him by 8 in the state (48-40), Mitt Romney leads by 12 (49-37), and Mike Huckabee is ahead by 13 (51-38). Romney and Huckabee's advantages are pretty comparable to the 15 point margin John McCain won the state by in 2008.
Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:

Mike Huckabee 44/33/23 (+11)
Mitt Romney 38/35/27 (+3)
Sarah Palin 42/50/8 (-8)
Newt Gingrich 34/43/23 (-9)

Head-To-Head (Obama/Candidate/Undecided):

Mike Huckabee 38/51/10 (+13)
Mitt Romney 37/49/15 (+12)
Newt Gingrich 40/48/12 (+8)
Sarah Palin 44/45/11 (+1)
PPP surveyed 977 Nebraska voters from January 26th to 27th. The survey’s margin oferror is +/-3.1%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, mayintroduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Another poor showing by Palin even in a heavily Red state.

Another Poll where Huckabee and Romney are basically tied!

It looks like it's coming down to these 2.

Palin really does badly against Obama. And in the reddest of red states!

Not good!

If you guys really believe that these polls are a good representation of how Palin will do against Obama in an actual election 22 months from now, then I have some ocean front land in Wyoming to sell you.

Palin has been enduring a huge, smear campaign involving the left, the MSM and members of her own party. The message sent was that Palin cannot beat Obama in a basically, the average American is starting to believe the horse crap.

I mean, seriously, do you guys really believe that Palin can only beat Obama by 1 point in Nebraska of all places. This poll is enough for me to realize that these PPP polls are skewed...or that you really cannot fight city hall.
