A very interesting Gallup poll has just been released pitting Obama against various Republican candidates (see here for source).
One of the most interesting points of this survey is the Obama/Paul and Obama/Bachmann polls.
Of registered voters, 47% would choose Obama over Paul’s 45%, compared to 48% choosing Obama over Bachmann’s 44%. Likewise out of national adults, 45% Obama over 44% Paul and 48% Obama over 43% Bachmann.
Romney is just about clinching the lead all round and Perry a close second.
With the Ron Paul vote, there is the largest number of ‘Other/Don’t Know’s (8% registered, 9% national) than all of the other Republican candidates. This is rather promising for those in the Ron Paul camp as they’ve got the most scope to get the undecideds.
I’m glad to see Gallup include Paul in a poll that I’m sure Fox News would have hated. Perhaps if the GOP realised he was a viable candidate nationally, then the base might start taking him more seriously.
