Trusting everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, lets move back to politics. Not that this is going to happen, but polling organizations love garnering attention running polls like this one showing that 41% of Democrats support a primary challenge against President Obama.

Story from Talking Points Memo:

While President Obama has fared well at the state level in early 2012 presidential election polls, a newly released national poll paints a more troublesome picture for the president’s re-election bid.

The McClatchy-Marist survey finds 41% of Democrats are in favor of a challenge for the Democratic presidential nomination. When Democratic-leaning independents are included, 45% support a primary challenge, 46% don’t, and 9% aren’t sure.

Almost assuredly President Obama will not face any primary challenge in 2012 from any credible contenders.
