OUTLIER! OUTLIER! OUTLIER!!!!

WE ALL KNOW THAT GOP SELF IDENTIFICATION CAN'T BE MORE THAN 18%!!!!!

The GOP is doomed. This MUST be an outlier!!! PPP is part of a conspiracy to over-sample members of the GOP!!!!

We all know that Democrats will rule for the next 100 years!!!! OUTLIER!!! OUTLIER!!!!!!

RASMUSSEN, ARG, FOX, GALLUP, MOORE and RESURGENT REPUBLIC ARE ALL OUTLIERS TOO!!!!!

The only accurate polls are the ones from CBS, the AP and IPSOS!!!!

NOTHING ELSE COUNTS!!!!

OUTLIER!!! OUTLIER!!!! CONSPIRACY!!!!!

What's odd about Harold1995's reaction is that it would seem to me that this poll is very bad news for the GOP: it shows that even if you give a relatively modest Democratic party ID lead (six points) Obama beats every possible 2012 GOP nominee named by at least thirteen points...

Stillow:

A poll less than 6 months into a new presidents term asking about his re-election is not worth the paper its written on. People are still inthe honeymoon period and in the self validation period that they made the right choice.
Take this poll in two years and it will mean much more. This early on it was a waste of time and money to even do this type of poll at this point in Obama's term.

John:

You are probably right, Stillow, but it is still interesting to have some benchmarks, (and trends) in order to compare later (more meaningful) polls with.

Looks like Palin has her work cut out, if she wants to make a run in 2012. While Huckabee has a favourability rating of +8 (w/ 24% undecided), and Romney +4 (w/ 23% undecided, she is on -8 (w/ only 9% undecided). At least according to this poll.

19% Obama favorable rating from Republicans? Uh-oh! Looks like there are still some moderates left alive and kickin'! Quick, someone call Cheney and have those traitors water-boarded before the next election!
