Rasmussen Reports has an already-Drudged poll on the 2012 presidential election, which finds former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) tying Barack Obama and soon-to-be former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) only trailing by 6 points.

I doubt you could find a Democratic consultant not named Doug Schoen who takes this serious, especially the high seven percent “some other candidate” number; Rasmussen has been showing Obama in the dumps for months. But the rest of the poll has got to be headache-inducing for Sarah Palin skeptics.

If Sarah Palin loses the Republican nomination should she run for President as an independent candidate?

Yes – 21 percent

No – 63 percent

In thinking about the 2012 Election for President of the United States, suppose you had a choice between Republican Mitt Romney, Democrat Barack Obama and Independent Sarah Palin. If the election were held today would you vote for Republican Mitt Romney, Democrat Barack Obama or Independent Sarah Palin?

If Sarah Palin loses the Republican nomination should she run for President as an independent candidate?

Barack Obama – 44 percent

Mitt Romney – 33 percent

Sarah Palin – 16 percent

Two things. First, Obama remains around 45 percent no matter who else is in the race; even in Rasmussen’s relentlessly gloomy (for Democrats) polls, that suggests an unassailable base of non-white voters and liberal whites. Second, if 21 percent of all voters would want to see Palin run as an independent, how many Republicans would want to see that? How many of them are still sick at their party or the possibility of a Romney nomination?
