Obama would beat Rick Perry (and Sarah Palin) in Texas — but lose to Ron PaulSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Thu, 06/30/2011 - 17:38
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.
Big Brother has to mass-create fake polls to keep sheep-people asleep.
Status Quo is truly scared this time around.
And for a very good reason.
