Despite economic woes, President Barack Obama leads all potential Republican rivals for the upcoming 2012 election, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Monday.
Despite a 44% approval rating and negative ratings on the economy, Obama is leading all potential GOP rivals including front-runner, Mitt Romney.

In hypothetical general-election match-ups, Obama leads former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney 49 percent to 43 percent and he leads businessman Herman Cain by 15 points, 53 percent to 38 percent.
However, Obama’s lead narrows in a two-way contest against a generic Republican. Forty-five percent said they would “probably vote” for Obama while 42 percent said they would “probably vote” for the Republican presidential nominee.
