Obama leading in 2012 polls

    Obama is slightly ahead of Romney in the 2012 presidential election polls, and he's WAY ahead of Palin.

    You provide no sources for your information. Regardless, two observations: Poll numbers can be skewed any number of ways and, these numbers will change by tomorrow.

        I agree with you Randy.

        No offense there foreignpress but I think you should be writing hubs more than commenting here in the forums.

      it's amazing that people on the right "CANNOT HEAR OR BELIEVE THE TRUTH" if you told them maybe that the lord told you that obamas polls were higher then they would believe you. they live in a fictional world based on boogey men and fairy tales and paranoia. everytime we go and rob a country they say it's for GOD and FREEDOM.No it was for bush cheney and HUNT OIL. talking with and explaining something to a right winger is futile because they will suddenly get scared from one of their imagined monsters, grab a m-16 and start killing people . . .  "for GOD and FREEDOM"

          correct it's just another misinformed vision from someone on the right. here is a conversation with someone on the right.
          winger says: so what is your name
          bob says: it's bob
          winger says:see i told you it wasn't bob
          so then bob says"IT'S BOB"
          winger says: get the guns cuz sumthin' ain't right i told ya  it's a conspiracy cuz his name ain't bob.
              and they appear never to learn. confusion runs rampant with them. republicans raided iraq for god and liberty on borrowed money and not paid for yet, they believed that. we improve HEALTHCARE and help to cut the huge deficit with it(proposed by the Republicans and romney put it in his state) and to them thats bad. this has become laughable

              everyone was deliberately forced in a patriotic corner.however i do remember everyone telling "W" that the man had no wmd's.colin powell was quitting(no reason to invade) the technical advisors said no wmd's.he sent them twice more they said there were none. the U.N. said do not go you have no reason. england said wait! but you missed all that.over 5000 of our teenagers died and 50000 iraqis so that hunt oil could get the oil.thats all that came of it right wingers i'm starting to see are the abacus vs the calculator. the encyclopedia vs the internet,the horse and buggy vs the car. they still say the world is flat i think this is the last time i will talk with them.it saddens me to know that there is a group of people in this country that see right(healthcare)as wrong and see wrong(IRAQ)as right!you enjoy your self and in a few years when you are offered insurance that wont arbitrarily increase in premium and will cover you and your family eventhough you have pre-existing conditions,  .  .  .TURN IT DOWN!

    Wow!  480 Hubs, Habee?  I hadn't noticed for a while; you've been WRITING!!  Good for you!

    And since I'm pretty sure you're not a recent Obama Zombie convert, I'm also pretty sure you found some real polls that show those results.

    Be interesting to see how those polls look after R.I.P.  Uh, that's code for the November elections, when we "Retire Imperial Pelosi".

    Got me curious, though.  Just Googled "Obama Palin Poll" and came first and foremost to an AOL article citing a PPP (Public Policy Polling) poll which parallels what you mention here, Habee.  Not saying that's the one (or one of several) you spotted, but if so, a quick Wiki look indicates it's affiliated with the Democratic Party and that it's neutrality has been questioned more than once.

    Which doesn't necessarily mean their polls are entirely off base. 

    Time will tell! big_smile

        Mr. Deeds I have to much respect for you to enter into an open debate about my political views with you.
        I hope that someday my opinions are proved wrong and that what you say is true. I am not so close minded as to not accept that possibility.
        At present I feel that the ends do not justify the means that he employs.

          The 'end' being the addition of 32 million people to having access to medical care, tens of thousands of American lives that will be saved thereby, a level of fairness that insurance companies will berequired to provide their customers vs the evil 'means' - majority vote.

    You are correct, Ghost! I'm not an Obama fan, but I don't hate him like many here do - not saying you do. I think if the GOP doesn't come up with a moderate-conservative viable candidate, BO will be re-elected.

      Ghost32posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Well, Habee, I wouldn't go so far as saying I hate Obama, hate being such a wasteful emotion and all, but I surely do oppose everything he stands for--except his relationship with his wife and daughters; that looks A+.

      And since I'm promoting Sarah Palin for 2012, and she wouldn't be what you'd call a moderate exactly, I guess it's up to me.  Let's see,  if I can write 100 hubs a day x the next 700 days = 70,000 hubs and get 1,000 views per day per hub = 70,000,000 daily views for Sarah x at least the last 100 days of the Presidential campaign = 7,000,000,000 views total x a converted-voter ration of 1% = 70,000,000 more votes for Sarah...she'll be a shoo-in.

      Yup.  Piece of cake.

      Oy yeah, when he was in Haiti recently with Bill Clinton, he shook hands with a Haitian and in a state of panic (Bush is a germaphobe) immediately wiped his hand on Clinton's shirt.  Not only was this act crazy and rude in the extreme, but it shows Bush's lack of reasoning ability.  Do you really think there are more germs on the haitian's hand than Bill Clinton's shirt?

      If Ramussen reports it even, then Obama is way ahead.

      Rasmuss is notoriously biased.

      There's a long ways to go before the 2012 election.  Romney is gifted at talking out both sides of his mouth, but he'll have a hard time running against the federal version of his own health care plan. But I agree he would be the stronger candidate (vs Palin) against Obama. The evangelical bias against Mormons will prevent Romney from getting the nod - and that fact will pit Palin against Obama in 2012.

    Do the math and see what the cost of health care will be in 10 or 20 years if it's allowed to keep going up at the rate it's been going up in recent years. Not to mention the 40 million who have no insurance or the people who think they have insurance but who find they don't due to the fine print in their policies.
