PPP Polling: 2012 GOP Presidential results with Third Party

PPP has put together a scenario of what would happen if it came down to Obama vs. Romney and a Third Party run.

I guess this is PPP's subliminal attempt to 'plant a seed' in the heads of Republican voters of what would happen if Romney is nominated when IN REALITY, any Republican other than Romney, would lose by even a greater margin. I can hear the anyone but Romney folks now, "I bet if they had done Rick Perry duh...he would have won.

Here is their results, for what it's worth.

Head-to-Head with third party candidate:

Barack Obama 47%
Mitt Romney 26%
Sarah Palin 21%
Undecided 6%

Barack Obama 46%
Mitt Romney 30%
Donald Trump 18%
Undecided 5%

Barack Obama 45%
Mitt Romney 33%
Ron Paul 15%
Undecided 8%

Barack Obama 46%
Mitt Romney 40%
Jon Huntsman 7%
Undecided 7%

Barack Obama 45%
Mitt Romney 41%
Ralph Nader 7%
Undecided 7%

Barack Obama 45%
Mitt Romney 41%
Bernie Sanders 5%
Undecided 9%
PPP surveyed 700 American voters from August 18th to 21st. The margin of error for the
survey is +/-3.7%.

Not too sure about those lower polling 3rd party candidates... BUT either way... sure shows that a 3rd party run would only guarantee Obama's re-election.

I am also very doubtful of Palin getting 21% of the vote. She would be lucky to pull in 5-8% She polls very poorly due to the image/reputation problems that haunt her.
