Romney Clobbers Obama in Recent Poll

According to the new survey conducted by Dartmouth College, Romney beats the president in a head-to-head match up by 8 points, 47 percent to 39 percent. But hold on: though losing big to Romney, Obama soundly defeats every other potential GOP candidate the poll tested, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (by 8 points), former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (by 16 points), Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (by 19 points), businessman Donald Trump (by 22 points) and former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin (by 27 points). The president does not get passed the 50 percent threshold when pitted against every potential GOP candidate except Palin and Trump. This is an indication that the President is highly beatable if the GOP choose the right candidate. Romney seems to have the best chance of winning right now. I think at this point we need to support the one with the best chance of winning. The less infighting in the primaries the better.
