Latest Gallup

Gallup: Obama trails Romney, ties Perry
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) would beat President Obama among registered voters, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) would tie the president if the election were held today, according to a new Gallup Poll.

Obama leads GOP Reps. Ron Paul (Texas) and Michele Bachmann (Minn.) among registered voters, but by 2 percent and 4 percent, respectively.
If Michelle Bachmann is within four points (and Ron Paul within two) among registered voters, then the President is in a historically bad political position 15 months out from the election. Which is not to say that he can't win, because 15 months is a long time in the life of an election campaign, but he's sure entering that campaign from a position of weakness...
