McClatchy-Marist national poll of registered voters:

http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/12/10/1967883/poll-obamas-approval-ratings-fall.html

Romney 46%
Obama 44%

Obama 47%
Huckabee 43%

Obama 52%
Palin 40%

Obama job approval: 42%
disapproval: 50%

Quote
Romney had the best advantage over the president among independents, preferred by 47-39 percent. Independents break for Obama over Huckabee by 42-40 percent. Palin fares much worse among independents. They favor the president over her by 52-35 percent.

That's odd, these kind of polls usually show Huckabee doing the best.

That's a very strong showing for Romney; he is usually just barely above Huckabee in national polls.  Though I don't think we have had a McClatchy-Marist in a while.

More often than not yes, but there have also been a few other cases in which Romney did better:

list of national polls

The last PPP national poll, for example, had Obama leading Huckabee by 3, but leading Romney by only 1.

How low would Obama have to fall for Palin to have any kind of shot against him? lol.

Unfortunately, I don't think he's going to get her in the end.

Good to see Obama's approvals falling well in advance of the 2012 primaries.

Romney is a better candidate on paper. I have a feeling people are not going to like him much once they see him on TV constantly. He's just so fake.

Huckabee is a much more dangerous candidate, imo.
