Rasmussen: Obama 271, Romney 267 OCT 5, 2012 BY JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
One month and one day before the most important presidential election in the past quarter of a century and perhaps in the past century and a quarter, Rasmussen Reports shows the race being about as even as it could possibly be. At this point, Rasmussens state-by-state polling shows that President Obama would win by the tally of 271 electoral votes to 267 for Mitt Romney.
All of Rasmussens polls in the nine key swing states have been taken in the past three weeks, although the polls have been taken at different times during that stretch. In these nine key swing states, Rasmussens polling shows Romney leading in Virginia (by 1 percentage point), Florida (by 2 points), Colorado (by 2 points), Iowa (by 3 points), and New Hampshire (by 3 points). Rasmussens polling shows Obama leading in Ohio (by 1 point), Nevada (by 2 points), Wisconsin (by 3 points), and Pennsylvania (by 12 points).

My Aunt says she’s still going to vote for Obama because he’s the better looking candidate. Uuum, whose idea again was it to allow women to vote?
The trend is our friend. Imagine if he used an equal turnout model or a 2010 model.
Pray for America
I’m going out on a limb...
I question Raz and his commitment to honest polling, yes, I do!
He was on BOR last night and spouted a democrat talking point about the debate down to the exact verbiage....that caused a big hmmmmmm in my mind.
Reminder her this is about America and then slap some sense into her.
I doubt that but it possible with all the vote fraud
Or 18 year olds?
I gather your aunt did not watch the debate: the ‘better looking vote’ should have been swayed to Romney (see the commentary at Hillbuzz on how bad Obama looked).
I just noticed it was you again with the not-so-good news....
Is this a trend? Or is this a troll?
Romney can win Ohio, Nevada & Wisconsin if his debate performance in 2 remaining debates is just a little better than Obama. That should not be difficult unless the liberal moderators go out of their way to help the radical socialist from Chicago. The unemployment number today was the October surprise.
If Obama is re-elected, the unemployment number based on current methods will be close to ZERO since no one will be actively looking for jobs.
If all you want to hear is good news, you’ve chosen the wrong forum. We deal with good news bad news, happy news, sad news here. Mature up.
I have no prob with any of it...
You just seem to be the source of most of the bad news posts...
Paranoia strikes deep....
What's not mature in asking a question?
Guys, its not going to be that close... Obama will not get above 42-43% on election day, while the EC won’t’ reflect how bad of a route he will get, due to population distribution, the idea this is going to be a few EC vote difference is just laughable.
The feeling was that if you were old enough to be drafted to fight in the nation’s wars, you should be old enough to vote for the representatives who might decide if the nation does go to war.
Naahhh. Obama’s not better looking, he’s just a slickster.
Mostly Pre Debate polling. Too early to be calling it based on these numbers
By Tuesday we will a rolling number from the Debate.
It's a combination of 1980 and 1988 all over again.
Ohio is a big key most years, and it will be this year as well.
Whichever candidate wins Ohio, wins the election.
Romney will get 300+ EV’s and 52& of the PV as Obama is being exposed as the empty suit he really is and has been.
If you think the Dems are going crazy now, wait until after debate #2 and #3
Bombing Iran on Halloween might not even save Obama.
The only thing thats saves bumbles is bombing a Red state.
Romney is going to win Ohio, and WI.
Yes, but the article is based on polling over the last three weeks state by state. All the post debate polls show movement to Romney in the state by state polls
Yeah why would Obama visit Wisconsin on his way from debate in
Denver back to white hut?
He is in trouble in Wisconsin that’s why. He’s in so much trouble
that he did not go to Iowa or FL immediately afterwards.
Then he was in Northern Virginia today, a short drive from the white hut.
He also came to Cleveland.. I thought he owned Cleveland.
It’s not the question but the implication. The old saw about shooting the messenger. Mature folks like so many others on the thread engage the news objectively and dispassionately without casting aspersions on those who post a thread. It’s after all a news item that’s not taken from either a tabloid or some MoveOn.org rag.
And Rasmussen uses a rolling five day average so things are really better than that
Wait a minute! The first year that 18 year olds could vote, I helped Mr. Nixon get elected the second time.
“Rasmussens polling shows Obama leading in Ohio (by 1 point), Nevada (by 2 points), Wisconsin (by 3 points), and Pennsylvania (by 12 points)”
If Romney stays strong the rest of the way, he could conceivably pick off all of those states except PA (I think that one is a lost cause). Ohio has had me worried this entire election, but things are looking better there.
I’m wondering, though, how much Harry Reid is going to dip into his little bag of tricks in Nevada? Reid pulled out all stops against Angle, will he do the same for Obama? He’s already the designated Attack Jackass this election, so it wouldn’t surprise me.
True the fresh polls will tuen even better for Romney. I even think Ras is under polling how hyper jazzed our side is to rampage and destroy on election day as in 1994 and 2010.
Your Aunt also needs her vision checked if she thinks the guy with the purple lips and big ears is the "better looking candidate"
“Guys, its not going to be that close... Obama will not get above 42-43% on election day, while the EC wont reflect how bad of a route he will get, due to population distribution, the idea this is going to be a few EC vote difference is just laughable.”
I really think that Romney will win states which noone thought where in play such as NY.
Well not sure about NY but if the numbers are what I expect I do agree states no on is talking about will go red.
I will stAte right now, and have before, no state Obama won by less than 55% of the popular vote in 2008 with the exception of MN will go to Obama in 2012.
