Breaking Gallup Poll: Unnamed Republican Tied at 45% with Obama 2012

HAHA, So much for Ron Paul being unelectable!

Nameless Republican Ties Obama in 2012 Election PreferencesYoung voters less supportive of his re-election than of his election in 2008by Lydia SaadPRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. registered voters are evenly split about whether they would back President Barack Obama for re-election in 2012 (45%) or "the Republican Party's candidate" (45%). This is similar to the results for the same question when it was asked a year ago.

Funny Because Rasmmussen Has Ron Paul 41 vs Barry O 42


But Barack may very well not on the ticket if just one State goes through with an eligibility law. There are 11 right now with them in process...

State Eligibility Law: Obama's Achilles' Heel in 2012?

Those numbers you quoted are

Those numbers you quoted are from last year, the one I quoted was conducted this week.

I'm so sick of this crap. An honest media outlet would want to know who is this "unnamed Republican"
Fellow Paulites: never forget - next time one of these media outlets seem cozy with Ron Paul (or his ideals) they are enemies of Liberty! Don't let up on them for a moment!

Re-read the article

There is no Republican, just an imaginary opponent. Once a specific opponent is named, the figures could or would change, possibly drastically.

My apologies. I am so used

My apologies. I am so used to attempts at marginalizing Ron Paul, I guess this was just a knee jerk reaction!

No problem.


Thanks for posting.

I really don't see Obama

I really don't see Obama getting re-elected. Many who voted for "Change" have seen that he is just a continuation of what has been driving this nation into bankruptcy, loss of freedoms, and perpetual, undeclared wars.

And the Republican candidates pretty much would not rock the boat if they got elected, other than Ron Paul. The GOP continues to put up straw men opposition to the radical democrats, and in some ways turn out worse. Remember it was the GOP that gave us the Patriot Act, the use of torture, "Free Trade", and many other assaults on our freedoms and prosperity. And it was the GOP that voted for the Clinton "Assault Weapons" Bill, and much of the Democrat agenda.

But Obama is quite unpopular. Rather than worrying about him, we need to work to get Ron Paul the nomination, and to change the Congress.

Then we need to deal with DIEBOLD,

the MSM, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and a host of other issues, up to and including having a private protection service for Ron Paul and his family as opposed to the Secret Service.

Ya, and ALSO....remember how

Ya, and ALSO....remember how that "templed" stadium filled up with over a million people?
Those idiots are a LOT still out there. I do not know what rug they hide under for the rest of the years, but they still think he is great.

Ron is not "unnamed" here

Ron is not "unnamed" here because he is being excluded, as you seem to subtly suggest. This poll applies equally to Mitt Romney or any other Republican candidate. The purpose is to illustrate the very typical disenchantment voters show with a sitting president, versus the generic unknown opponent to be.

From the article:
It's a political maxim that in elections with a sitting president running for re-election, voters are not so much choosing between two candidates as voting for or against the incumbent. That is not to say it won't matter whom the Republicans choose as their standard-bearer, but perhaps it matters slightly less than it would in an open election.

I never said Ron Paul is not

I never said Ron Paul is not a name. The point of the poll is that any republican can win, even donald duck I mean trump.

This negates the claim Ron Paul can't win.

Not really.

Once a specific candidate is named, for example Trump, then they would be able to show a more accurate picture. The poll is essentially worthless.
