Poll: Obama tied in potential 2012 match-up with — anyone? 

Looking ahead to 2012, an unnamed Republican candidate polls as well as Obama in a new CNN poll:

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Thursday indicates that if the 2012 presidential election were held today, 47 percent of registered voters would back Obama, with an equal amount supporting an unnamed Republican challenger. Fifty-four percent of people questioned say Obama will lose if he runs for re-election in 2012, with 44 percent saying the president would win a second term.

Obviously, it’s very far out to be discussing the next election. But this result is probably a reflection of the current national mood, where the health care reform bill has not made the president terribly popular.
