Anybody but Obama (ABO) Beats POTUS by Six Percent – Election 2012

A generic Republican now holds a six-point advantage over President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 match-up for the week ending Sunday, October 2.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds the generic Republican earning 47% support, while the president picks up 41% of the vote.  Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided.

Last week, the generic Republican and the president were essentially tied.  Since weekly tracking began in early May, the Republican has earned 43% to 49% support, while the president has picked up 40% to 45% of the vote.

Rasmussen Reports will provide new data on this generic matchup each week until the field of prospective Republican nominees narrows to a few serious contenders.

President Obama leads most of the current GOP hopefuls aside from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is not running, and former  Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who he’s essentially tied with.  For a complete listing of all the most current matchups, click here.
