CNN Poll: Ron Paul Stands Best Chance Against Obama

CNN Poll: Ron Paul Stands Best Chance Against Obama - Michael Tennant, New American, May 6, 2011:

"'Ron Paul cannot get elected' President, declared Donald Trump at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference. Trump, who has never run for office, let alone won an election, may want to reconsider.... A new CNN poll finds that ... the longtime Texas congressman has the greatest chance of beating Barack Obama, while The Donald comes in dead last.

"In a hypothetical match-up ... Obama beats Paul by only seven percentage points (52 to 45 percent) ... former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee by eight points, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney by 11 points, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich by 17 points, former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin by 19 points, and Trump by a whopping 22 points....

"CNN ... hastened to add that such hypothetical match-ups are meaningless."
