    2012: Obama runs ahead in generic Pew poll

    By Peyton M. Craighill

    President Barack Obama runs ahead of an unnamed Republican opponent by 47 to 37 percent among registered voters in a new poll from the Pew Research Center. The poll also finds former governors Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee as the most likely candidates to fill that Republican slot.

    Before rolling out the data too far, a few caveats. The election is more than a year and a half away. And without a named opponent in a horserace question, the true electoral choice is obscured — hence a large 16 percent report being undecided.

    Foreign policy rarely means anything when it comes to presidential elections.

    Poll has Charlie Sheen beating Sarah Palin for President:

    “Apparently, Democratic voters would vote for Charlie Sheen for president over her by 44 to 22 percent. Independents, too, by 41 to 36 percent. “

    I see The Donald isn’t on that list of potential GOP candidates. Can you imagine his foreign policy platform?

    As much as I hate 90% of the stuff on Fox News, I actually am OK with Huckabee’s show. Fairly entertaining, not insane or fear mongering, pretty decent stuff.

    I’ll have to catch an episode other than what media matters shows me. My own liberal bias. I will say I don’t think Mitt Romney is all that bad of a guy. I might be wrong. I wonder what everyone else thinks of him.

    Mitt Romney has been dead to me since he strapped his dog, in a carrier, to the roof of his car for a 12 hour car ride. I know it was a long time ago, but still.

    I didn’t fall for the Shepard Fairey poster or catchy slogan last time around, don’t know why I would a second.

    It’s ok. I think I could have cherry-picked better bites out of context than the NRSC did.

    Plus, every single negative in that ad could be remashed/remixed and fairly held against the Bush administration: Sounds of united protesters, high gas prices, big spending and deficits, criticism of a national disaster, and shots of the President “not working”.

    I’m no political expert, but that video seems more like a Washington-Insider’s idea of “funny” than a common persons.

    Between Bachmann, Trump, The Turtle, and The Tangerine, I can hardly wait for the Republican campaign season to get rolling.
