The political fortunes of President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich continue to head in opposite directions. As Obama’s star keeps falling, Gingrich’s keeps rising, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll
The survey of registered voters shows that Obama leads former House Speaker Gingrich in a one-on-one matchup by only 47 percent to 45 percent. That’s well within the poll’s 5 percentage point margin of error.
Obama’s lead over GOP front-runner Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, also falls within the margin of error – 48 percent to 44 percent. The president has a stronger lead over businessman Herman Cain – 49 percent to 39 percent. And Obama leads Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann 54 percent to 35 percent.
