Romney has done well in many recent 2012 polls and this one is no exception.


Story from

(Hamden, CT) — The 2012 presidential election is still nearly two years away, but the pundits are already out with a preference poll.

The nationwide Quinnipiac University poll of more than two-thousand registered voters shows former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in a virtual dead heat with President Obama if the 2012 presidential election were held today.

The poll has Romney leading Obama 45 to 44-percent.

That’s well within the margin of error of two percentage points.

The poll also shows that by a 49 to 43-percent margin, voters don’t feel President Obama deserves a second term in office.

Probably more stunning than Romney’s margin-of-error lead is the last line of that story which sttes that 49% say President Obama doesn’t deserve a second term. That is a huge number at this point and he’ll have to work hard to turn that around.
