With President Obama's approval rating hitting new lows, a new Public Policy Polling survey shows him trailing several Republicans in a 2012 presidential match ups.
Mitt Romney (R) leads 46% to 43%, Mike Huckabee (R) is ahead 47% to 45% and Newt Gingrich (R) is in front 46% to 45%. Sarah Palin (R) and Obama are tied at 46% each.
Key takeaway: "There are two things driving these strong poll numbers for the Republican candidates. The first is a lead with independents in every match up... The other thing causing the Republicans to do so well is that their party is unified around them to an equal or even greater extent than Democrats are around Obama.
You can see from the Sistah Souljah strategy currently being employed (Obama and company vilify traditional "liberal" allies like teachers unions) that they are trying to win back some independent voters while they're pretty confident that the liberal allies, although vilified, will vote for Democrats anyway in 2010 and 2012.
I say, do NOT let them take us for granted.
Call you reps, call you senators, call the White House and let them know: WE WILL NOT BE SISTAH SOULJAHED.
Yes, the words "president" and "Palin" together are pretty scary.
But so is a current "Democratic" president who wants to lift his political boat from sinking waters by demonizing teachers.
And so is a current "Democratic" president who has created a federal education policy that encourages the firing of teachers, the closing of schools, and the use of test scores to fire teachers and close schools.
So is a current "Democratic" president who "applauds" the firing of teachers.
Don't let them use the words "President Palin" to scare you into voting for these anti-teacher/anti-union corporate whore Demoflaks.
If the education policy stays as it currently it is, then no votes for any Dem who supports it and no votes for President Hopey/Changey.
That's how we're doing it at my house, at any rate.
