Marist poll: Romney edges out Obama

A new Marist poll shows Mitt Romney beating Barack Obama in a hypothetical 2012 matchup, 46%-44%, spurred by a solid 8% lead among independents.

2012 matchups:

a. Mitt Romney 46% Barack Obama 44%

b. Barack Obama 47% Mike Huckabee 43%

c. Barack Obama 52% Sarah Palin 40%

Notes: Both Huckabee and Palin fare worse among indies. They favor Obama over Huck by 2% and the POTUS over Palin by 17%.
