Rasmussen: Generic Republican Kicks Obama's Butt By 8%

The polling for specific candidates drops an little. This is likely because people don't know much about them. Liberals claim the opposite is true.
(Rasmussen) — President Obama earns his lowest level of support yet against a generic Republican in a hypothetical 2012 election match-up for the week ending Sunday, August 28.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds the generic Republican earning 48% of the vote, while the president picks up support from 40%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided.

Last week, the GOP candidate held a 48% to 43% edge over the incumbent. This is the seventh week in a row a generic Republican has led Obama. Prior to this survey since early May, the Republican has earned 43% to 48% support, while the president has picked up 41% to 45% of the vote.

That four percent that would prefer some other candidate over a generic Republican or Obama are probably liberal Democrats wanting a liberal primary challenger, which is that happened would probably get the candidate, depending on who he was, a lot more than four percent. Obama would still win the nomination, but it would cripple the Democratic Party along with Obama even worse than now. We can always hope.
