Gallup Polling Shows Obama Tied With Almost Everyone


It’s a good time to be a Republican presidential contender.  The latest Gallup polling is showing that all of the candidates are virtually tied in a head to head competition with the incumbent president.  And, in the case of front runner Mitt Romney, Barack Obama is actually trailing the former governor.

Obama trails Romney 46 to 48 among registered voters, although he leads once all respondents are included, coming in at 47 to Romney’s 46.

The Romney versus Obama numbers have always been tight, but what is more disturbing is that other candidates are closing in on the Democrat as well.  Obama and newly announced candidate Texas Governor Rick Perry are tied at 47 percent each among registered voters, and Congressman Ron Paul and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann only trail the president by 2 points and 4 points respectively, both within the poll’s margin of error.

Can the president’s anticipated September jobs talk bring his numbers back around?  Or will he continue to decline as the economy, and the political infighting, has the potential to become even more disastrous?

I supported and voted for Obama in 2008. He had the right ideas and values but threw away the strong majority in Congress because he was too naive to believe that the Conservatives would ruin the Nation's economy just to prevent his re-election. That is incompetence. Charlie Brown still believes that Lucy will let him kick the football. I doubt if Obama has the spine to stand up to the Conservatives to push the programs that the Nation needs.

Margaret C. The problem is Obama did not even try to keep his promises, in many cases he turned around and did the opposite of what he promised and said. No doubt he would meet a lot of opposition if he tried to keep his promises, and fixing something as complex as the economy is hard, so is leading a country, but he didn't appear to even try. Why would we want to support a man like him? The man suddenly became Bush 2.0 and continued and even expanded some of Bush's and Republicans worst policies. The man is too gutless to even debate with anyone in any unscripted debates, or explain why he suddenly changed his mind on most of what he promised.

They need to add a new section in presidential elections and call it a vote of no confidence. I bet it would win by a landslide as none of these polititians is fit to be president.
