New Poll: Only Ron Paul Can Beat Obama in Iowa

If the general election were held today, only Ron Paul could beat Barack Obama in Iowa.

According to an NBC-Marist survey (pdf) conducted Nov. 27-29 among 2,896 registered voters, Paul ties Obama, with each contestant gaining 42% of the vote.

Other Republicans do significantly worse against the presumed Democratic candidate: Romney -7, Gingrich -10, Perry -11 and Bachmann -23. The margin of error is 1.8 percentage points.

Ron Paul 42%, Obama 42% (tied)
Mitt Romney 39%, Obama 46% (-7)
Newt Gingrich 37%, Obama 47% (-10)
Rick Perry 37%, Obama 48% (-11)
Michele Bachmann 31%, Obama 54% (-23)

Additionally, Ron Paul leads Obama 42% to 35% among independent voters and by 14 percentage points among voters under 45 years of age. Ron Paul attracts as many as 15% of Iowa’s Democrats.

    The election process has just began- Lets have faith in Ron Paul and all the people who are counting on him- I know elections are bought but maybe God will intervine in this one- I believe Ron Paul is the answer for our country= Republicans need to be nicer to Ron Paul because he does contol who wins this race- one way as you suggested and another way by running against obama himself – then we stand an excellent chance of winning!!! Go Ron Paul! As hard as the media is working against Ron Paul I have seen many things happening just to show people the light!

    Obama will win re election because mitt romney will get the republican nomination so Ron paul will run independent and split the vote, it is not what i want to happen but the way things are looking that is what will happen.

    Vote Ron Paul. He won’t win, because the voting process is probably going to be messed around with because the banksters can’t corrupt Ron Paul (hopefully). Just for the sakes of us the people, telling them what we want, vote Ron Paul.In general America has to get a whole damn lot worse in order for the REALLY big masses of people to wake up, joining hopefully the Occupy Movements, shutting down the corrupt system that has been brought about by the mafia-equivalent corporations and banks out there. Everyday your freedom will be cut even further by laws like the PATRIOT act and the NDAA.
