LADIES AND GENTLEMEN...LET'S GET RRRRRRRREADY TO RRRRRRRRUMMMMBLLLLLLLLEEEEE!

Ok...so maybe that's a little too dramatic.

But pollster John Zogby decided to take a look at a potential 2012 match-up between Dick Cheney and Barack Obama with a nationwide survey of 1,963 likely voters just over a week ago. The results showed that even though some people may disagree with Obama (approval rating is 49 percent), they don't like Cheney AT ALL. Zogby writes..

"President Barack Obama would beat Republican Dick Cheney by a sizable margin in a hypothetical presidential match-up - but 35% of likely voters said they would choose the former Vice President over the current President (49%) and another 14% said they would pick someone else, a new Zogby Interactive poll shows."


It's good to know that, in the midst of all this angst (rightly or wrongly) aimed at the President, that people still don't like Dick Cheney even more.

It is scary to know that 35% of American voters would go for Cheney. It must be the flouride in the drinking water.
