Two new polls show Palin trailing badly in 2012 match up against Obama
- wo new polls show Sarah Palin losing ground before she even begins a potential presidential campaign against President Obama in 2012. A new poll from ABC News and The Washington Post has Sarah Palin trailing President Obama by 15 points (54%-39%) in a potential 2012 contest. That poll could be dismissed as an outlier if not for a similar poll from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal which shows Palin trailing Obama by 22 points (55%-33%). Both polls show other Republican candidates performing much better against President Obama than Palin. Both polls have Palin's numbers going down, as she was polling in the 40% range in previous months.
