Poll: Romney Would Beat Obama, Lose to Hillary if Election Were Held Today
by Dan Riehl 27 Jul 2014, 12:31 PM PDT
A new CNN-ORC International poll has Obama's favorability rating stuck at a dismal 42% with Romney besting him 53 percent to 44 percent, but falling to Clinton 55 percent to 44 percent in a hypothetical election were it to take place today.

At the same time, both Chris Christie and Rick Perry saw their numbers rise.

"Politically speaking, there is an interesting group of people who would not vote for Obama but would pick Clinton over Romney," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "It turns out that nearly seven in 10 of them are women, and 56 percent are independents."

The polling numbers also show an increase in the last month in the number of Republicans who support New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R).

As pointed out here, the numbers jibe with a previous ABC poll from last year.

Last November, an ABC News/Washington Post survey indicated that if the 2012 election were held again, Romney would have had a 49%-45% edge over Obama in the popular vote.

damned lies.

I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI
