Today, Rick Perry formally announced his candidacy for President, and right now, the money would seem to be on him. Intrade has him at 33.7%, with Mitt Romney at 29.8% to win the GOP nomination..
This new web video from the Rick Perry’s Presidential Campaign introduces him to the country:
video via Freedom’s Lighthouse
“We cannon afford 4 more years of this rudderless leadership”
“This president is not only a threat to this economy, so are his appointees a threat”
“Those who threaten our interest, harm our interests, we will simply not be scolding you, we will defeat you”
Gene Schwimmer of the American Thinker notes that Obama, for the first time, yesterday, fell below 50% on Intrade.
…when Intrade speaks, this writer listens. When polls show President Obama’s approval consistently below 50%, when polls show an generic Republican defeating Obama in 2012, but Intrade has him consistently above 50%, I take the poll results with a hailstone-sized grain of salt.
But perhaps not today, for, at the time of this writing, for the first time ever, Obama is below 50% on Intrade. Only a tenth of a percentage point (49.9%), mind you, and he may very well be back above 50% by the time the reader reads this.
But it’s a first, and worth noting.
That was yesterday. Today, it’s at 49.5%.
