Let’s just cancel the election: New poll shows Obama leads all GOP rivals

in Uncategorized by

A new New York Times/CBS News poll shows President Obama holds a significant lead over each of his potential Republican rivals.

Obama leads Mitt Romney by six points among registered voters, 48% to 42%, and tops Rick Santorum by eight points, 49% to 41%.

Key finding: “Romney’s drop in support against the president is attributable to a shift among independents. Last month, independents favored the former Massachusetts governor by eight points over Mr. Obama. In the new survey, Mr. Obama holds the edge, leading Romney among independents by nine points.”
