President Obama beats Ron Paul by only two points among registered voters and just one point among all adults, according to a new poll by Gallup.
That the president is in a statistical dead heat with someone most analysts have given no chance of winning the presidency is a startling development and suggests there is a strong pool of voters who will vote for a plate of chicken livers over Obama.
Now calm down, I’m not comparing Ron Paul to a plate of chicken livers, just saying the “anyone but Obama sentiment” seems to be high.
As you can see from the graphic below, Mitt Romney is ahead of Obama by two points, Rick Perry tied, and Michele Bachmann down by 4.
Meanwhile, Obama’s job approval is at 40 percent, just one point above it’s all time low of 39 percent, according to Gallup.
