Marist/McClatchy Poll: Governor Palin Is Now Within 5 of Obama After Trailing Him by 26 in June

Every single Palin supporter needs to e-mail this poll or re-tweet it around so that potential voters hear about this news from the new Marist/McClatchy poll:

Obama 49
Palin 44

She is a stronger general election candidate than Rick Perry as he trails Obama by a 50-41 margin (Michele Bachmann trails Obama by a 13-point margin).

Governor Palin has cut Obama’s 26-point lead in June….by 80%.

The biggest gain came for Palin, the former Alaska governor who hasn’t yet announced whether she’ll jump into the fast-changing race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

After trailing Obama by more than 20 percentage points in polls all year, the new national survey, taken Sept. 13-14, found Palin trailing the president by just 5 points, 49-44 percent. The key reason: She now leads Obama among independents, a sharp turnaround.
