Election 2012: Generic Republican 49%, Obama 41%
Tuesday, December 06, 2011
A generic Republican candidate now holds an eight-point advantage over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup for the week ending Sunday, December 4. This is the largest gap measured between the two since early September.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds the generic Republican earning 49% support to Obama’s 41%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.
