Just when you think the punditry, predictions, and prognostications about Scott Brown and his Senate victory can’t get any more ridiculous, you see something like this and realize that, in fact, it can and it will:
A stunning new poll conducted by Newsmax/Zogby reveals that Massachusett’s new Republican Senator-elect Scott Brown could defeat President Barack Obama in a presidential election.
The Newsmax/Zogby poll released Tuesday found that the pair would be statistically deadlocked if the presidential election was held today.
The poll indicates surprisingly weak support for the president among independent voters, who favor the tyro Brown by 48.6 percent to 36 percent in a hypothetical matchup against Obama.
Mark McKinnon, the respected political strategist who created former President George W. Bush’s successful television ad campaigns in 2000 and 2004, told Newsmax that the survey results should trigger alarms for Team Obama.
