Fantastic news for Mike in Missouri! :D

Quote:
The new survey of Missouri by Public Policy Polling (D) shows President Obama trailing in the perennial swing state that he narrowly lost to John McCain in 2008 -- unless, that is, the Republicans nominate Sarah Palin or Newt Gingrich in 2012.

Obama was tested against several possible Republican nominees. Mike Huckabee leads Obama by 49%-42%, and Mitt Romney leads Obama by 47%-41%. However, Gingrich only edges out Obama by 45%-44%. And Obama pulls ahead of Palin, by a margin of 46%-43%.

Obama's approval rating in the state is only 43%, with a disapproval of 52%. Huckabee has a personal favorable rating of 51%, with 29% unfavorable -- the only Republican with an overall positive rating. Romney's rating is 30%-42%, Gingrich is at 33%-48%, and Palin is at 39%-53%.

Gringrich/ Obama 45/44
Palin/ Obama 43/46 (yes Palin would lose to Obama in MO, this is not a typo)

Huckabee is best with independents 49/42

Obama trails all but Palin in Missouri

Raleigh, N.C. – The race in Missouri between President Obama and John McCain in
2008 was the closest in the country, with McCain prevailing by less than 1%. But PPP’s first look ahead to the President’s 2012 re-election bid in the Show-Me State shows him he has a tougher road to climb this time, down by as many as seven points against the four current frontrunners for the Republican nomination.
Neighboring Arkansas’ former governor Mike Huckabee would be the strongest
challenger if the GOP wants to retain the state’s 11 electoral votes, leading Obama 49-42.

Mitt Romney would do just as well, up 47-41. Newt Gingrich would only narrowly
prevail, 45-44, while the president would actually beat Sarah Palin, 46-43.
Despite being the best known overall and the second best liked with Republicans, 16% of Republicans are undecided when Palin is matched with Obama, higher than for any of the others. She is also the only one who trails with independents, 40-45, with Huckabee and Romney best at 49-37 and 47-35, respectively. Palin also gives Obama his highest level of GOP support, at 8%, versus 5% or 6% against the others. The president holds his own base remarkably well, getting 86-88% of them regardless of the opponent, while the Republicans vary from 76% (Palin) to 89% (Huckabee) of the GOP.

Huckabee is by far the best liked of the four Republicans, with a 51-29 favorability rating to Romney’s 30-42, Gingrich’s 33-48, and Palin’s 39-53. Huckabee performs better across the board. 25% of Democrats like him, with Romney’s 13% a distant second across the aisle. He also has a 46-27 mark with independents, with Romney’s 26-39 way behind. Romney’s problem is Republicans, who give him only a 49-24, last by far, with Huckabee’s 79-11 the best grade with the GOP.

“These results continue the trend seen nationally and in North Carolina, Virginia, and
Montana: Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee are right now the president’s strongest
potential opponents, with Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich placing no better or even
sometimes far worse than John McCain did in Obama’s decisive 2008 victory,” said
Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.

PPP surveyed 515 Missouri voters from November 29th to December 1st. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.3%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Very nice.

Also this from PPP's summary:

“These results continue the trend seen nationally and in North Carolina, Virginia, and
Montana: Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee are right now the president’s strongest
potential opponents, with Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich placing no better or even
sometimes far worse than John McCain did in Obama’s decisive 2008 victory,”


You can also add (though, of course they don't) "The results also continue the trend seen nationally that between the two most electable candidates, Mike Huckabee does better with conservatives, Republicans, and independents than Romney and far better accross the board on favorables."

Conclusion?

This is an awesome poll for MH! And it is not a fluke because his numbers have been pretty consistent.
