Whoa!--Gingrich 45 %, Obama 43%
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. (To see survey question wording,click here.)
...Other candidates have briefly led Obama, but this is a good sign of Gingrich's current momentum and a sign of the dissatisfaction with Obama.
