An Internet poll sponsored by Newsmax.com reveals that Americans overwhelmingly favor Donald Trump as their preferred candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.
Online participants in the poll, which has drawn more than 550,000 responses, also support Trump by a wide margin in a head-to-head matchup with President Barack Obama.
If the election were held today, Trump would beat Obama in a landslide, 68 to 13 percent. But that lead is just as sizeable when Trump faces off against the best and the brightest in the oft-mentioned field of GOP contenders for 2012.
Trump takes 57 percent of the vote in a field including Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty. His closest competitor, according to the poll, is former Massachusetts Gov. Romney with 9 percent of the vote.
Following are the poll questions and results. Percentages do not total 100 because of rounding:
1) Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Donald Trump?
Favorable: 77 percent
Unfavorable: 22 percent
2) If the 2012 election were held today, who would you vote for?
Barack Obama: 13 percent

Trump says he’d probably run as independent if he doesn’t win Republican nomination.
There it is:
Trump’s “my way or the highway” ==► Perot version II ==► Obama II
The postmodern version of antidisestablishmentarianism. The ruling order just ain’t gonna let us cashier them that easily.
We’re in for a world of hurting.
soapbox, ballot box
I’d rather trust the Wall Street Journal but Trump is neck and neck with Romney (a breed of sheep, no less!).
As I have posted at my place, the worst nightmare Trump is starting to give Obama, will be the stuff of our dreams.
Trump is second in even the Communist News Network (CNN) poll…
Lets hope he runs and defeats the Kenyan.
It’s pretty obvious WHY Trump has such strong support – this guy is like a dog with a bone!
What still intrigues me, though, is why so many others, especially in the Tea Party (West, Palin, etc), are refusing to acknowledge the Obama eligibility issue, and are instead saying it is diverting from more “important” issues?!
One gets the sense that even if Obama were found to be guilty of a Watergate type affair the Leftist propagandist media would still give him a free pass. What does this guy have to do before he is called to account?! No wonder he’s [jokingly] referred to as “The Messiah”.
Rand Paul should run with him. But got no idea who Trump would work with.
