By Jim Meyers
U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, the head of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, would defeat President Barack Obama in a head-to-head race for the presidency, according to a new Newsmax/SurveyUSA poll.
Newsmax conducted the survey to find out how several well-known political and "dark-horse" celebrity figures, ranging from Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, and Bill Gates to Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, and Glenn Beck, would fare if they ran against Obama for the White House.
The survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted Nov. 3-4, after Republicans won the House and gained six seats in the Senate in the midterm elections — results widely interpreted as a rejection of

Obama and raising questions about his chances for re-election in 2012.
In the Newsmax poll, respondents were asked: “If there were an election for president of the United States today, and the only two names on the ballot were David Petraeus and Barack Obama, whom would you vote for?”
Petraeus [
], who formerly served as head of coalition forces in Iraq as well as leading the U.S. Central Command, has denied that he has any political ambitions. But observers feel he would be a strong candidate if he decided to campaign for the White House — a sentiment that the Newsmax poll results confirm.
