Gallup Poll: Any GOP Candidate Could Beat Obama

Friday, 17 Jun 2011 09:12 AM

According to the latest Gallup poll, President Barack Obama would lose to an unnamed Republican candidate if the election were held today.

obama, gallup, poll• Forty-four percent of respondents said they would vote for a Republican candidate when asked whom they would support in the 2012 election.

•Thirty-nine percent of participants said they would vote for Obama, while 18 percent of respondents said they had no opinion.

The no-named-Republican survey seems to fly in the face of other recent polls that have Obama prevailing in matchups with the current field of Republican candidates.

• An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll indicates that Obama would beat Republican Mitt Romney, 49 percent to 43 percent.

• The same poll indicates that Obama would win against Republican Tim Pawlenty by 50 percent to 39 percent.

The fact that a generic Republican candidate fares better than any of the actual Republican candidates seems to indicate a general dissatisfaction with the Republican field.
