Poll: Romney and Paul Best Chance Against Obama
Public Policy Polling released a report today, polling 476 Floridians finds that in a hypothetical race, Republican candidates Mitt Romney and Ron Paul have the best chance at Obama in 2012.
According to the poll, Paul is trailing Obama 45-44 and Romney in a similar standing at 46-45.
Florida is the retirement capital of America, or god’s waiting room so it’s no surprise that 63 of voters disagree with Perry’s announcement that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme as opposed to 25% who approve. This drops front-runner Perry down to a 7 point margin on Obama, 50-43.
Obama only has the support of 46% of voters who approve of him to 51% who disapprove.
Paul is successful with the Independent support at 52% with Michelle Bachmman trailing 9 points with 43%. Paul has the lowest republican support 74%, opposed to Romney which has the largest Republican support at 84% making him the most likely for Republican nomination in the most important voting state in the nation. If Paul does not get nominated as the Republican candidate, he would be a strong contender running as an Independent or even Libertarian.
