Electorate says: “GOP generic is my candidate”

According to Gallup’s most recent polling, a “generic” GOP candidate would beat President Obama  by 5 points – 44% to 39%.


Ken’s Take: The GOP debate strategy – pick on Obama’s policies rather than each other – might just take a toll on the President.

If the candidates stay committed to somebody beating Obama rather than “me” winning, the President will be facing a 18 months of substantial drip-drip-drip.

But, I doubt the candidates will stay on message.  Eventually, some of the candidates will revert to an “elect me” strategy.
