Back to a 50-50 Nation

The latest Public Policy Polling national survey finds President Obama more or less tied with all four of the leading candidates for the Republican nomination.

Obama trails Mike Huckabee 47% to 45% and Mitt Romney 45% to 44%, ties Newt Gingrich at 45% to 45%, and leads Sarah Palin 47% to 45%.

Key takeaway: "This is the weakest performance Obama's posted in these 13 monthly surveys and a pretty clear indication that passing health care has not done anything to enhance his political standing, at least in the short term."
