President Barack Obama leads Donald Trump by 15 percentage points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup, according to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports.
The national survey finds that 49 percent of likely voters support the President, while Trump obtained 34 percent. Twelve percent said they would pick another candidate and 5 percent were undecided.
About 65 percent of Republicans would vote for Trump over Obama. Voters unaffiliated with any party refer Obama by 48 percent, over 25 percent for Trump, and another 20 percent would choose another candidate.
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted between April 15-16, 2011. The margin for error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
