The most important thing to consider when looking at who would be better for opposing Obama is not the poll numbers.
The most important thing to consider is who will least likely be crushed by Obama. All of Obama's arguements are against what the GOP stands for, which Romney is a perfect representative of. The general election will not be about issues if it is Obama vs Romney. It will be character assasinations and class warefare.
If it was Ron Paul vs Obama, then the Obama machine would be falling all over itself trying to figure out how to win. Class warefare would fail. No possibility for using character assassination. Obama would be in constant defense against his support for the NDAA, patriot act, wars, failed economy, assassination of American citizens, abuse of executive power, unconstitutional wars -- all things Romney couldn't use.
