Obama would beat Rick Perry (and Sarah Palin) in Texas — but lose to Ron Paul


Will the Lone Star state turn blue in 2012?

It isn’t likely — unless Gov. Rick Perry jumps in the ring and clinches the Republican nomination, a new poll from the Public Policy Polling group found.

In the poll’s match-ups, President Barack Obama loses Texas to every notable Republican except Perry and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If the ballot came down to Perry and Obama, 47 percent of poll respondents said they would vote for Obama. Forty-five percent said they would cast a ballot for Perry.

The most elected Republican in the poll? Mitt Romney.

The poll found that Obama would garner 42 percent of the Texas vote to 50 percent for the former Massachusetts governor. The president trailed Texas Rep. Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, by 5 percentage points, 40 percent to 45 percent.

Status Quo is truly scared this time around.
And for a very good reason.

Ron Paul beating Obama is a no brainer

Unlike the rest of the Republican field, Ron Paul would attract many more independents and disenfranchised Democrats. This is why it is important to get them to vote for him in the Republican primaries. I'd guess for Democrats, the most disappointing thing about Obummer would be his lying about bringing the troops home, and easy talking point to point them in Ron Paul's direction.


I hope this gets some attention.
