Poll shows big challenge for Obama, GOP, and Trump

Washington (CNN) - There's plenty of bad news to go around in a new survey out Tuesday that suggests both President Obama and his eventual Republican challenger will face a substantial portion of the electorate who refuse to vote for them - especially if that challenger is Donald Trump or Sarah Palin.

According to the new survey from USA Today/Gallup, 46 percent of Americans say Obama will definitely not get their vote – a number that suggests the president has little room for error in his effort to win reelection.

Romney leads GOP pack in New Hampshire

Washington (CNN) - There's more good news for Mitt Romney in the state of New Hampshire: a new Republican presidential primary poll shows the former Massachusetts governor has a commanding lead over all the other potential 2012 candidates.

According to a new survey from American Research Group, Romney holds a 32-17 percent lead among likely voters over his nearest competitor, businessman Donald Trump. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul are all at 8 percent.

Romney beats Obama big in New Hampshire, poll shows

(CNN) – President Obama is getting some ominous news out of New Hampshire Friday in a new poll that suggests he will lose the key presidential state by a sizable margin if former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee.

According to the new survey conducted by Dartmouth College, Romney beats the president in a head-to-head matchup by 8 points, 47 percent to 39 percent. Obama's poor showing against Romney is also the product of his weak approval rating in the Granite State, where only 36 percent of voters there give him positive marks. That compares to a 45 percent approval rating for Obama in New Hampshire in a similar poll one year ago.

Gingrich says Obama 'has never yet become president'

(CNN) - Likely GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich delivered a harsh assessment of President Obama Wednesday, describing him as a "left-wing activist who has never yet become president."

According to the Concord Monitor, the tough remarks came during a campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, during which the former House Speaker suggested to a small gathering that the president has eschewed his governing responsibilities and is instead a "permanent candidate."

Brewer feels snubbed by White House

(CNN) - Jan Brewer, the Arizona governor who's sparred with President Obama over her state's controversial illegal immigration law, says she feels "snubbed" by the White House after not getting invited to an immigration summit there Tuesday.

Speaking to Fox News, Brewer said the summit - during which the president met with state and local leaders including New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka - should have included current governors of states that share a border with Mexico.

Palin says it's still too early to talk prez bid

(CNN) - Sarah Palin has taken few steps to indicate she is seriously interested in a presidential run, but the former Alaska governor says it's still premature to give the matter much thought.

"I think it is too early to declare a candidacy," Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "I think it's too early for anyone."

Poll shows GOP not happy with its prez candidates

Washington (CNN) - As the Republican presidential primary race continues its slow march out of the gate, a new poll suggests likely GOP voters are significantly less satisfied with the potential field of contenders than they were four years ago.

Less than 50 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents give positive marks to the still-in-flux GOP presidential field, down markedly from 2008 when nearly two-thirds said they were happy with that cycle's crop of candidates, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
