A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds that Obama looks increasingly vulnerable in 2012's election, with a majority of voters believing he'll lose to any Republican, a solid plurality saying they'll definitely vote against him and most potential Republican challengers gaining on him
Even Sarah Palin leads Obama amongst independents. By a margin of 49% to 36%, voters said that they definitely plan to vote against Obama, according to the poll. Independents by 53% to 28% said that they definitely plan to vote against him. With that sentiment permeating the electorate a little more than a year before the general election, most Americans think Obama won't win a second term. By 52% to 38%, voters think that he'll lose to the Republican nominee, whoever that is. Even among Democrats, 31% think that the Republican nominee will win.
