A new Rasmussen Tracking Poll today shows Rick Santorum beating Obama in a head-to-head matchup 45% to 44%:
In a potential Election 2012 matchup, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is at 45% while President Obama earns 44%. This is the first time in any poll that Santorum has led the president. Several other GOP challengers have led the president a single time in the polls including Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and Newt Gingrich. Each man briefly held the lead while they were surging in the polls, only to fall quickly. It remains to be seen what will happen to Santorum’s support.Meanwhile, "Mr. Electable", Dullard Flip Rino, is only polling even with the President, 44% to 44%.
Someone please remind me again just what the justification is for nominating that guy.
