According to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports, Rick Perry is currently beating Barack Obama by three points.
But don't panic or anything. Election Day is more than a year away, so there's plenty of time for Obama to drop even lower…
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows Perry picking up 44% of the vote while the president earns support from 41%. Given the margin of sampling error (+/- 3 percentage points) and the fact that the election is more than a year away, the race between the two men is effectively a toss-up. Just over a week ago, the president held a three-point advantage over Perry.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney currently trails the president by four percentage points, 43% to 39%. That’s a slight improvement for the Republican compared to a week ago… A Generic Republican currently leads the president 48% to 40%. If Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is the GOP candidate, the president leads 46% to 38%.
Wow. That Generic Republican is really kicking everyone's ass.
I'll bet Tim Pawlenty's kicking himself for having dropped out now.
