Rasmussen Poll Shows Trouble for Obama Re-Election

Rasmussen Reports, one of the country’s most accurate pollsters in the last two presidential elections, has released a poll regarding the 2012 Presidential election.  According to Rasmussen, Barack Obama would be in big trouble if the election were held today.  In two hypothetical matchups, Obama leads Sarah Palin 48-42 and is in a dead heat with Mitt Romney at 45-45.  This is not a good sign for the White House.

As any honest person would admit, the media has gone to great lengths to solidify Obama’s political standing and to undermine Sarah Palin.  Despite these efforts, Obama is still under 50 percent and only leads Palin by six points.  What happens as even more people see the disconnect between Obama’s policies and the media’s coverage of their hero?  What happens when Sarah Palin’s political operation has the money and freedom to have more control over its own message?

No poll in released in 2009 will determine the outcome of an election to be held three years from now, but voter intention surveys are an excellent guide as to where politicians currently stand.  In both hypothetical matchups, the President fails to reach 50 percent of the vote, a troubling sign for any President at any point in an administration.  The fact that Obama’s re-elect number is so low and his lead so small so early in his administration is even more troubling for the One.

Rasmussen is not CBS, Zogby, or Newsweek.  His surveys are valid and he is on to something.  I think the White House knows what he knows.  Why else would they already be in “take off the gloves” mode?

Hopefully, these results will cause the to start acting like Wannabe Anglican thinks they will.

Any pollster that tries to predict an election 3 years in advance should stop pretending to be a pollster.

Some choice headlines:

McCain pulls ahead of Obama in Rasmussen poll

Rasmussen GOP 2008 Poll: Rudy Leads with 24% of likely GOP voters, but Condi is a surprise #2 with 18%, followed by McCain at 17%.

And the right-wingers don’t even notice that Rasmussen only gives them PART of the results.
