Post-CPAC, Romney Trounces Obama in NH Poll

We are now less than a year from the start of the 2012 Presidential Primary season and many, mostly on the Left, are wondering who will face off against President Obama.  Predictable CPAC Straw Poll results aside, and barring a Donald Trump run, there does appear to be an early trend taking shape.

Last August a telephone survey showed Mitt Romney would beat President Obama and Mike Bloomberg in a three way contest for the 2012 election.

In a national poll conducted by Politicons Polling, it found that Republicans are closing in on Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election. Of the Republicans polled, Former MA. Gov. Mitt Romney was the only one to beat President Obama by 1%. Followed by Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and Chris Christie, all trailing Obama by 6%.

In late January of this year, Politicons Polling had a similar result, showing Romney again beating Obama by 1%

Phoenix, AZ- In a national poll conducted by Politicons Polling, it found that Republicans are closing in on Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election. Of the Republicans polled, Former MA. Gov. Mitt Romney was the only one to beat President Obama by 1%. Followed by Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and Chris Christie, all trailing Obama by 6%. We also included Congresswoman Michele Bachman, who is the most recent rumored Presidential Candidate. She trailed Obama by 9%. And of course last but not least, Sarah Palin. We found Palin trailing Obama by 13%. With only 9% undecided. This is a huge gap, and one that could cost her the election, if she decides to run.

This morning we read that in a state won by Barack Obama in 2008, Mitt Romney has again defeated the President, and this time by a larger margin.  The survey conducted by University of New Hampshire Survey Center for WMUR-TV showed a potential electoral shift from 2008, depending on the GOP candidate.

Obama's chances of winning New Hampshire depend, at this point, on his opponent. In a hypothetical race between Obama and Romney, Romney leads, 49 to 41 percent. Against Palin, Obama does much better, leading 57 to 34 percent. Against Pawlenty, Obama leads 44 to 37 percent.
