Giuliani, Palin Top Obama In New Poll

A new McClatchy-Marist Poll finds Republicans a bit schizophrenic about the 2012 presidential race.

Get this: A majority of Republicans polled say they don't want former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin or former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to get into the race.

Yet, when matched head-to-head with President Obama, both Palin and Giuliani run better than any of the announced GOP candidates.  

Giuliani actually bests Obama, 49-42 percent.

Palin runs five points behind Obama, 49-44.

Obama is neck and neck with Mitt Romney, leading by 46-44. Obama had led by 5 points in August, 4 points in June, and 1 point in April. Romney now leads among independents, 44 percent to 40 percent.
Obama leads Rick Perry by 50 percent to 41 percent. They split independents 43-43. Obama had led Perry by 19 points in August, as Perry was joining the campaign.
Obama leads Michelle Bachmann 53 percent to 40 percent. He had led her by 17 points in August, by 12 points in June.
