September 22, 2011 - Perry Leads GOP Pack, Tops Romney 1 On 1 In Florida, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Obama Trails Romney And Ties Perry


Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a small lead over the Republican presidential pack in Florida with 28 percent, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 22 percent, but Perry tops Romney 31 - 22 percent if Sarah Palin doesn't run and leads Romney 46 - 38 percent in a two- man face-off, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Romney has barely moved since he led the Florida GOP pack with 23 percent in an August 4 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, while Perry has surged from 13 percent in that survey conducted before he formally announced his candidacy.

All Florida voters disapprove 57 - 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his worst score in any Quinnipiac University poll in any state.

In possible 2012 presidential matchups, Romney tops the president 47 - 40 percent while Perry gets 42 percent to Obama's 44 percent, a dead heat. In the August 4 Florida poll, Romney and Obama were deadlocked 44 - 44 percent while the president led Perry 44 - 39 percent.

I believe two things that relate to this story:

1/ At this stage, polls seek to form public opinion, not merely reflect it.

2/ It's still much too early to predict anything meaningful about 2012.



I also believe that either giving up or being complacent lose elections.

1. My guess is the disapproval is fear over SS and Medicare among seniors

2. sad state of affairs
Sad state of affairs when Obamas ratings are lower then Romney and Perry. What don't the seniors understand about the republican privatization of Social Security and the destruction of medicare? Open your eyes people, open your eyes....

6. How does a disapproval rating and a Repuke vs Repuke poll correlate?
I don't think they do. Some of the folks that disprove must know that a Repuke president would be disastrous.

3. The M$M will push Perry
until he receives the nomination. It's what they do best.
The others might as well hang it up because the M$M wants Perry.
.........and those are Scottybeamer's projections!..... :rofl:
