In Missouri, Sarah Palin is Democrats' only hope in 2012

If you're inclined to believe one pollster 22 months before the election -- and why wouldn't you be? -- Missouri could be a hard-fought battleground state in 2012's presidential election, or it could be a landslide in either direction. It all depends on which weirdo wins the Republican nomination.

And let's all agree, regardless of politics: These are some goofy bastards the GOP is running out there. (OK, we probably can't all agree. That would be neat, though, eh?)



Public Policy Polling has the data for Missouri (and Fired Up! Missouri linked to it). It shows Barack Obama polling even with ex-Fox News pundit Newt Gingrich -- who it turns out is sort of like a Chubby John Edwards -- and frontrunner Mitt Romney, who hasn't worn a necktie in months, apparently an effort to distract from his socialist ways.



When the candidates get ever weirder, the margins get wider. If Mike Huckabee -- the IHOP-loving, hotness hating looncake, also of Fox News infamy -- wins the nomination, he'll boat-race Obama into early retirement, 49-43. Humans are provincial creatures, I guess, even when the nearest province is Arkansas.

On the other hand, if Sarah Palin is forced to step up and do it, she'll get stomped in Missouri, 48-43, the pollsters predict. It's because she's a woman, I bet. Yeah, that's it.

See the polling data at Public Policy Polling.
