Let the Polling Begin

Obama enjoys just a single-point advantage over Romney in the Marist poll. In the hypothetical matchup, 46 percent of registered voters said they would reelect Obama, while 45 percent would elect Romney. Nine percent were undecided.

Forty-four percent of registered voters in the poll said they would definitely vote against Obama in 2012, compared to 37 percent who definitely intend to vote for Obama's reelection. That margin widens with independents, 47 percent of whom said they would definitely vote against Obama, and 32 percent of whom favor his reelection effort.

Obama would best Palin 56-34 percent and beat Trump 54-38 percent.

I look at these polls and my mouth involuntarily drops open.  Who are these registered voters?  Who are these people who want to re-elect this man... A man who in the minds of many, has eclipsed Jimmy Carter as the worst president in modern history?  I mean, I know there are Leftists and party loyalists... but 46%?  That number surprises me.

Malott, I am not following these numbers very well. It looks, at least at first, that Obama would be voted against.

Then, he'd win?

Something is wrong when the numbers don't add and the people do. Help?
