Rasmussen: Romney 50%, Obama 46%

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 50% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 46%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

Last night’s debate isn’t going to help Obama either…

It’s all going to come down to Ohio, or maybe New Hampshire, or Colorado, or Wisconsin, etc….

      We can use them on all our “battle boats” that obama is building.

      Yet another line that Obama uses to plays to his base that loses another group of Americans. First is was his “Optimal” line. Which lost him the entire manufacturing vote. (the fact that you don’t know what I’m saying proves my point). And with this line he loses the Military Vote. Buy hey you still got welfarequeens and Soho Hipsters!

    • In other words, Carl can’t refute what Doug says in his post.

      Your ignorance is amazing. Really.

      I was speaking to an African American woman at work today and she said that line and “teachers” switched her from voting for Obama to voting for Romney. She came to the realization that the only plan that Obama had for improving the economy was cutting the military and increasing unions.

      • Preference cascades are interesting things. Dear Leader is loved… until suddenly Dear Leader finds himself deposed. (And in extreme cases, decorating a lamppost.)

        Judging by the increasingly desperate actions, I’d say the Obama campaign internal polls must really be showing something they don’t want to see.

        (Unless it’s all just a very professionally done disinformation campaign… but given this administration so far, what are the odds of that?)

      Add some glue and pastel dye, and you have the unicorns that 0bama is supposed to ride to glory upon.

    While I have slightly more faith in Rasmussen than in other polls (just as I have slightly more belief in Santa Claus than in the Easter Bunny), let’s recall that, a few weeks ago, many people (including me) were complaining that the polls were skewed against Romney, and that pollsters are some combination of incompetents and liberal hacks.

    While polls that show Romney pulling ahead are gratifying, I don’t know how much faith to put in them. After all, people stupid enough to vote for Barry in ’08 likely haven’t exactly been piling on the IQ points since then, and may well be stupid enough to vote for him again.

      It’s not the polls it’s the trends. Gains by Romney in most polls over several weeks are meaningful. I doubt the current polling is all that represenitive of the race but the overall trends clearly are.

      • retired.military

        I think the gains are more so the polling companies are not weighting so much for democrats anymore.

      • herddog505

        Good point.

    • retired.military

      I dont put much faith in polls either. However, the polling firms have to at least be somewhat close or they will lose face and thus business in the future.

      • herddog505

        Yes and no. Let’s face it:

        1. They’ve got something of a lock on the market;

        2. MiniTru has been lying to us for years and they are still in business. Well, mostly.

        • Newspapers are slowly dying, the ratings for news shows are declining, there’s too many alternative methods for news dissemination to be properly ‘controlled’, and it’s FAR easier to get more details and verify things than it was.

          As a result, I think, people are slowly developing better bullshit filters. They’re not going to automatically believe something they hear from a source they don’t particularly trust, they’re going to check it out. And if the info isn’t true and accurate, the source is going to be seen as less trustworthy.

          In the long run, it’ll be good for the media. When they finally realize they can’t spin things their way, then they’ll have to change their slant and people will slowly start to trust them again.

          But they may have to crash completely before they get the message…

      … Just because Romney gains doesn’t mean the polls are not still flawed.

  • GarandFan

    So when can Rasmussen expect to hear from Eric Holder?

    • jim_m

      I’m sure the DOJ-IRS joint raid is scheduled for late Friday night.

    Poor Barry.. 52 -45% on election day. Oh boo hoo

    • retired.military

      I think it will be more like 54 46. Romney 320+ ev.

    Too bad the combined Fascist Media/”Democratic”-potty electoral/elections/voter/vote fraud requires we overcome an additional aggregate 20% handicap.

    Please God, Mr Romney wins by a sufficient margin it makes moot the malfeasance!
