SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Fewer than half of California voters say they are inclined to re-elect President Barack Obama, but his support rises significantly when paired against two of the leading contenders for the Republican nomination.

A Field Poll released Thursday says voters are split between those who are inclined and disinclined to re-elect Obama, although opponents feel more strongly. About 11 percent were undecided.

When the Democratic president was paired against two potential Republican rivals, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Obama had double-digit leads.

The poll found Obama led Romney by 10 percentage points and Gingrich by 20.

Field surveyed 1,000 registered voters by telephone from Nov. 15 to 27. The poll has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

    People in California still do not get it. The golden state will continue down the slippery slope to oblivion. Californians are so liberal and really ill informed they continued to hang on to their tired failed beliefs regardless. There is no hope. Their arrogance and belief in their own superiority and sophistication is blinding them as they step into the abyss.

    We need to move forward, not backwards. But Obama and the teabaggers are not the answer. There is only one man who will move America forward and restore it to its former glory. Ron Paul.

    The United States is slowly devolving into a country of the corporation, by the corporation, for the corporation. The gap between rich and poor is growing at an alarming rate. And neither party is doing jack to fix it. We have a two party establishment and that has got to stop. Ron Paul is the only one who can unite Americans on both sides and make her great again.

    O;K..We have tried the President thing, We new it wouldn’t work, So let’s move on to Someone with Experience!

    The man’s race has nothing to do with it. That’s another problem with this country. Racism and discrimination do not belong in America.

    The real issue is that the Democrats and the Republicans are both being controlled by Wall Street & K Street. The United States is becoming more and more corporatist. That has got to stop. That’s why Ron Paul is the only hope for America. He’ll restore the country to its former glory.

      And traitors like you deported to messico, along with all the free loading Mexiroaches ( Criminals) and their anchor turdds. Why do people stab this Country in the back like that, I don’t get it. Put your balls on martin and take a stand..pusssy

    First of all, Jim, shut up. Second of all, I am not Mexican. I was born here. And not all Mexicans are criminals. The Republicans will move America backwards. The millionaires and billionaires will continue to make the gap between rich and poor wider. Would you like this country to be like it was before Medicare, Social Security or Civil Rights? When schools were still segregated? When gays were not treated as humans and were arrested or even killed? Where a person can be fired because they are disabled? Or maybe we should bring back slavery? Would you like that, Jim?

    The United States is not a country of the corporation, by the corporation, for the corporation. It was never meant to be that way. The people come before the corporations. Companies don’t make people. People make companies. It’s our business that keeps them in business. When will people realize that? Our Founding Fathers never wanted this country to be run by lobbyists or for members of Congress to pass laws that would hurt the average American just so the head of a major company can protect their ill-gotten gains. This country was founded on the belief that all men are created equal and that the government was to be of the people, by the people, for the people. The average American. Not those who use $100 for toilet paper.
