A liberal polling outfit wants you to believe that Rick Perry, the most successful job creating governor in the country, would be defeated by Barack Obama, the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.
Public Policy Polling reported:
Rick Perry is looking increasingly like the Republican favorite for President- he led in the Iowa poll we released this morning and he leads by double digits in the national poll we’ll release tomorrow. The biggest beneficiary of Perry’s rise? It might be Barack Obama.
In our first national poll pitting the two Obama leads Perry 49-43. That six point advantage is pretty comparable to Obama’s margin of victory over John McCain. Perry has certainly come on strong with Republicans but independents view him negatively already by an almost 2:1 margin, 29/55, and Democrats pretty universally give him bad ratings at a 10/71 spread. As a result Obama leads Perry thanks in large part to a 24 point advantage with independents at 56-32.

It’s a different story for Obama when it comes to the match up against Romney. There he can only achieve a tie at 45% , and because there are a lot more undecided Republicans than Democrats in all likelihood Romney would come out ahead if voters had to go to the polls and really make a decision today. Romney does better than Perry because he holds Obama to only a 9 point advantage with independents, 48-39, and because he loses only 5% of the Republican vote to Obama where Perry loses 10% .
The economy has lost 2.5 million jobs since Obama moved into the White House.
Barack Obama continues to make his mark as the worst jobs president since the Great Depression. Obama’s home state Illinois lost more jobs during the month of July than any other state in the nation
Democrats are hoping that they can win by lying about and smearing their opponent this year.
What wonderful people.
