Well this ought to open some eyes.
The Newt Gingrich surge has moved him to the top of the polls in Iowa, big gains in New Hampshire and now a two-point edge over President Obama in a hypothetical general election match-up.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters finds Gingrich attracting 45% of the vote while President Obama earns support from 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
In polls from earlier in November Gingrich trailed the failed president by as much as 12 points.
Meanwhile, Obama has hit rock bottom in the Rasmussen daily tracking, with only 19% strongly approving of the horrible job he’s doing. I’m surprised it’s so high.
