In the poll, Obama led all hypothetical challengers, including the state's former Senator Rick Santorum. However, both Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee trailed by smaller gaps than the survey's margin of error.

Both Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin trailed Obama by double digits in the poll. Against Gingrich, Obama reached the symbolic 50% threshold to Gingrich's 40%. He leads Palin 51%-36%.
