Which of the following hypothetical opponents do you feel would do the most harm to Barack Obama’s chances of getting re-elected in 2012?
Smith: A Democrat who is challenging him for the party’s nomination. Smith says that Obama has not lived up to his promises and is unwilling to confront conservatives.
Jones: A Republican. Jones is a moderate who has a record of working with both parties. His campaign will be based on his ability to get things done.
Allen: A Republican. Allen is a conservative who is calling for a strongly conservative platform. But he’s a principled man who will base his campaign on ideology not personalities.
Harris: A Republican. Harris has no significant political history and avoids discussing the issues. But he’s charismatic and a great public speaker. And he’s backed by a political machine that will run a strong negative campaign attacking Obama.
Keep in mind this isn’t a poll on who you would most like to see in the campaign - just who you think Obama is most vulnerable to.
