But, interestingly, he quit posting here the day after the last election. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it…

He is the only republican candidate that is able to match Obama. In two previous polls from CNN and Rasmussen Reports he is the number one republican candidate when comparing to Obama.

1 – Obama just released his birth certificate and claimed to have captured Bin Laden, getting popularity boosts from both. This poll, if it were honest, would have come before both, not after, in order to be accurate in its prediction. This 57% bounce has already dropped to 50% within a week, and the poll was taken at the exact time his popularity spiked, very dishonestly.

2 – As noted by FOX News, a majority of Republicans now support a 3rd party candidate. Therefore, this isn’t suggestive of support for Obama so much as lack of support for Republican candidates by their own base.
