Romney Tied With Obama in 2012 Polling

Just what we need over three years away from the next presidential election. Granted, this is a good sign right now, however. For all the relentless Palin-bashing in the media, it's remarkable she's within six points of media darling Barack Obama.
If the 2012 presidential election were held today, President Obama and possible Republican nominee Mitt Romney would be all tied up at 45% each, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

The president, seeking a second four-year term, beats another potential GOP rival, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, by six points – 48% to 42%.

In both match-ups, seven percent (7%) like some other candidate, with three percent (3%) undecided.

Palin is second only to Romney as the presidential candidate Republican voters say right now that they’ll vote for in 2012 state GOP primaries. But she’s also one of two candidates they least hope wins the party’s nomination.
Romney may well turn out to be the best candidate if the economic picture doesn't improve any time soon. He made plenty of mistakes in the 2008 primaries and if he gets out there now and pushes alternative economic policies to those disastrous policies of Obama's, he can really pick up steam the rest of this year and into the 2010 midterms.
