As the fight for the Republican presidential nomination chugs along, the party establishment continues to push former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney as the only contender who could win over independent voters in a general election. Just like in 2008, the message is that only a moderate Republican who fails to inspire the conservative base can defeat Barack Obama in November. It was the wrong message then and it is the wrong message now.

Earlier this week it was Pennsylvania. Today Florida voters are the latest in an important swing state to say President Barack Obama does not deserve to be re-elected. According to a Quinnipiac University poll released today, 50% of voters in the Sunshine State believe the president does not deserve a second term (only 42% believe he does, 8% had no opinion).

There's a new Gallup poll that shows 58% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have not yet decided which candidate they will support for the GOP's 2012 presidential nomination. While some on the left (and their accomplices in the mainstream media) may use this to further their delusion that the GOP field is weak, what it actually proves is that the majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are waiting to see, hear and learn which candidate is best qualified to lead the country.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released today shows that 63% of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track; up three points from a similar poll last month. But approximately half of the poll respondents (49%) approve of the job President Barack Obama is doing. Think that means he's not being blamed for the current state of the union? Think again.

A new poll shows just 44% of registered voters approve of the job President Obama is doing. That's down from 46 % in December. (source) Evidently his strong rhetoric about not giving up on health care reform, cap & trade and even more deficit raising government spending is not sitting well with the American people.
