While Public Policy Polling left him out of the Republican candidates they polled against Barack Obama (and oddly included Herman Cain, who is polling low in the GOP field), Rasmussen released a poll yesterday showing Ron Paul just 1 point down from the president.
- Obama: 39%
- Paul: 38%
- Other: 14%
- Undecided: 8%
Rasmussen also matched Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP nominee for Vice President, against Obama. She didn’t fare so well, trailing by 17 points to our increasingly unpopular president.
This is the second poll this week to show Ron Paul competitive against President Obama. In case you missed it, Gallup released polling on Monday testing four GOP candidates against Obama. Ron Paul came within 2 points. Don’t look for this to be reported or anything, the media is too busy covering Jon Huntsman.
