A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows Perry picking up 44% of the vote while the president earns support from 41%. Given the margin of sampling error (+/- 3 percentage points) and the fact that the election is more than a year away, the race between the two men is effectively a toss-up. Just over a week ago, the president held a three-point advantage over Perry. (To see question wording, click here.)
Perry leads by nine among men but trails by five among women. Among voters under 30, the president leads while Perry has the edge among those over 30. The president leads Perry by 16 percentage points among union members while Perry leads among those who do not belong to a union.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney currently trails the president by four percentage points, 43% to 39%.
(He only trails by 5 among women?! Quick, says the White House: can we provide free birth control on the streets?)
I can’t wait to see crosstabs to counter the notion that Perry attracts only the gun-totin’ Bible-thumpers.
Get ready for more drivel like this:
Complete with videos! Show folks how they’ll regress into Neanderthals and noodle if they, too, vote for Perry.
