    The 2012 election is looking more like a replay of 2008 than a do-over.

    The latest WND/Wenzel Poll shows none of the current crop of Republican presidential candidates has solidified the base of the party, with one in five GOP voters leaning toward support of Obama in November.

    The results are from the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies. The poll was conducted by telephone Feb. 1-3, 2012, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.44 percentage points.

    “The improvement in Obama’s prospects compared to the four remaining Republican challengers stems largely from two factors,” suggests pollster Fritz Wenzel. “First, Obama has largely avoided the political limelight while the GOP candidates savage each other with increasing intensity. Second, a smattering of evidence indicates that the economy is getting a little better, which helps the White House in the eyes of the voters. Secondly, the bloody fight for the Republican presidential nomination – by most estimations the nastiest GOP fight in memory – has really hurt the images of the challengers in the eyes of both Republicans and, especially, independent voters.”

    In every case except the match-up against Ron Paul, more than 20 percent of Republican voters said they are more likely to support Obama than the Republican challenger. And Ron Paul is close, as 19 percent of Republicans said they are more likely to support Obama than Paul.

    This percentage will be going up to 35% to 45% after another 6 months of Santorum and Gingrich's 'trivial pursuit' at trying to get further and further right of Romney. To hear them talk they're so 'right' already that their own 'raptures' will be taking place any week now. LOL

    These guys are their own worst enemies and Obama's looking better all the time.


    You quoted above: "The bloody fight for the Republican presidential nomination -- by most estimations the nastiest GOP fight in Memory -- has really hurt the images of the challengers in the eyes of both Republicans and espceially, independent voters."

    Isn't it Ironic that the closer these righties get their rhetoric 'back to god' the worse they are bloodying each other. LOL,

    Sort of the same thing we were hearing in 2008 during the knock down drag out between Clinton and Obama.

    "Secondly, the bloody fight for the Republican presidential nomination – by most estimations the nastiest GOP fight in memory "

    Good thing memory is rather short. We've been here before ... both parties.
