Obama Even With Generic Opponent

A new Gallup survey finds President Obama back to even with a generic Republican candidate, leading 43% to 42%, a marked improvement over polls from September and October, when Obama trailed 38% to 46%.

"The evenness of independents' preferences marks a significant change from September and October, when independents favored the Republican candidate by a significant margin. The current pattern more closely resembles where independents were earlier this year, when Obama and the Republican were evenly matched... The changes in this survey matchup between Obama and a generic Republican candidate no doubt foreshadow the potential political volatility to come over the next 12 months."
