PPP Polling: Mitt Romney top Republican against Obama in Arizona

If the Republican nominee is someone other than Palin Obama would still have a better chance at winning the state than his party has had since the 90s, but he would start out at a disadvantage against either Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee. Romney is the strongest of the Republicans, leading Obama by a 49-43 margin. That six point spread is closer than what the state saw in 2004 or 2008 and comparable to George W. Bush's margin of victory over Al Gore there in 2000, the last time the state was remotely competitive. Obama comes a little bit closer against Huckabee, trailing by a 48-44 spread.
Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:

Mike Huckabee 44/35/20 (+9)
Mitt Romney 44/38/18 (+6)
Newt Gingrich 34/48/18 (-14)
Sarah Palin 39/57/4 (-18)

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

Mitt Romney 43/49/8 (+6)
Mike Huckabee 44/48/8 (+4)
Newt Gingrich 46/46/9 ( - )
Sarah Palin 49/41/10 (-8)
PPP surveyed 599 Arizona voters from January 28th to 30th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.0%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Here is yet another poll that shows us Romney and Huckabee do best against Obama. But, from what I've been seeing; it is still Republicans that are trying to tear them down. Maybe someday we'll understand Reagan's 11th commandment. Hopefully we don't get stuck with four more years of Obama - because we're still foolish enough to keep breaking it: Romney can't be elected because of flip flops and Romneycare, Huckabee can't be elected because he's too fat and too soft on crime. Palin can't be elected because she's a quitter who speaks before thinking. Gingrich can't be elected because he's been divorced three times. :(

Romney AGAIN is the best candidate to beat Obama!

Romney will win the Arizona Primary going away. If Huntsman runs, he will finish 2nd, if he's still in it that late.

Whoever garners the nomination on our side will win Arizona by more than 6 points, and the margin will probably be in the double digits.

Romney really does seem to do the best against Obama in the majority of the polls

I have no doubt Romney will take this state both in the primary and the general.

Romney is not only on a media blitz this week, he's on a topping the polls blitz as well.
