Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 27 Jun 12 Edition

Down to 19 weeks to go until the November election and Republican Tea Party (GOTP) “it’s my turn” bully-boy Willard Mitt Romney’s staff has been conducting “meetings” in dance clubs with bars serving champagne in uni-sex bathrooms, while Willard’s been forced to flip, flop and soften his staff on immigration following the Supreme Court decision to toss out the controversial sections of Arizona’s heinous anti-immigration law coupled with President’s announcement allowing children brought into this country illegally by their parents to be able to stay.

So, how does the GOTP candidate stand up against the President?

Still no new polls showing favorability of the candidates, but the last Bloomberg poll of voters conducted from 15-18 Jun 12, shows the President with a 55% favorability rating compared to Romney’s 39%.

So, who’s more electable right now?

In the most recent viable’ poll(s) – which are any group other than FOX News or Rasmussen (which are always skewed to the right) – the most current NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl poll of registered voters conducted 20-24 Jun 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 47/Romney 44

The most recent Gallup Tracking poll of registered voters conducted 20-26 Jun 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 46/Romney 44

And finally, the most recent Bloomberg poll of likely voters conducted 15-18 Jun 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 53/Romney 40

If the general election was held today, Willard Mitt Romney still loses to President Obama in the general election.

How big would Willard lose? Well, if the General Election were held today, the Electoral College totals based on all available current poll numbers:

McCain picked Palin because she was qualified?

According to former GOP presidential candidate John McCain, Sarah Palin’s qualifications were the overriding reason he selected the former Alaska governor as his 2008 presidential running mate.

Giving some free, and unsolicited, advice to Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presumptive candidate Willard Mitt Romney’s upcoming choice of a running mate, McCain said on ABC’s “This Week” that the “primary, absolute, most important aspect is if something happened to him, would that person be well qualified to take that place?”

“I happen to believe that was the … primary factor on my decision in 2008,” McCain said, “and I know it will be Mitt’s.”

Having a “person [Romney] knows he could trust,” is also a critical consideration,” McCain told host Jake Tapper.

So, John McCain really, honestly, believes Sarah Palin, the woman who couldn’t name a single Supreme Court decision she disagreed with, the woman who couldn’t name one magazine or newspaper she read to keep up on what was happening in the world, the women who had no clue what the Bush Doctrine was and who made outrageous claims of being well versed on Russia because you could see it from Alaska was qualified to be vice president?

One more example as to why McCain had no business being President, and to show how lucky we are he was never elected.

He needs to come clean and admit picking Palin was not just a mistake but a disastrous mistake, and the only qualifications she had was that she was a woman and that she was younger than him.

Palin was picked to help offset McCain’s “old man” image, and because someone in his campaign staff thought they could capitalize on President Obama’s having not picked Hillary Clinton as a running mate. They believed millions of disaffected Democrat women would come flocking to their banner because he chose a woman. Didn’t matter who the pick was, they just needed a woman.

He screwed up; that’s all, he screwed up, and his pick proved what everyone suspected, that John McCain had lost it.
