SHOCK POLL: ROMNEY 48% OBAMA 43% [Drudge Headline]
Rasmussen Reports ^ | March 10, 2012 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 03/10/2012 11:17:08 AM PST by RobinMasters

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19 (see trends).

Looking at Tuesday's upcoming primaries, the GOP race in Alabama is essentially a three-way tie, while Mitt Romney leads by eight in Mississippi. Nationally, Romney now leads Rick Santorum by 12 points. Regardless of who they want to win, 80% of Republican Primary Voters nationwide believe Romney will be the party's nominee.

With the perception growing that he will be the GOP nominee, Romney leads President Obama by five points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. Today's numbers show Romney at 48%, Obama at 43%. That’s Romney’s largest lead since December. Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

Ooops. I actually fact-checked that she is black and somehow messed up. She IS in the ‘black women of the White House’ photo but perhaps seated because she is the boss. LOL. Jewish or whatever she is, she is one of the most hardcore progressive-socialist-commie-pinko-Marxists in the White House. I HATE her.

"Well then Mr. Robinson will need to ZOT half of Free Republic since at least half of the folks here are supporting Santorum, not Gingrich."

I'm sure you have a source for that claim?

If one gets zotted merely for expressing opposition to Newt, then I really don’t want to be a part of Free Republic.

Oh nobody is being zotted for 'opposing' Newt, what some posters are being zotted for is the unwarranted trashing and slashing in drive-by attacks without substance. JimRob stated that it wasn't going to be tolerated, and he was correct in saying so.

But frankly, I think Mr. Robinson is secure enough in his choice of candidate that he can accept some criticism of him

Your comments in your original post #74 (included below) didn't even fall into the category of 'criticism', your comments were the typical Newt-hating garbage that has been generated by other posters just like you. Your #74 contained no criticism whatsoever, it did contain a pile of insults, unfounded accusations, and ridicule of posters who DO support Newt, and there isn't a fig leaf anywhere that you can hide behind and claim that your words were 'criticism'.

and like I said I doubt he really wants to lose half his contributors/readers.

That's way above your pay grade. JimRob will act in the best interest of true conservatism, contributors and donations be damned. Now, for your convenience here is that original post of yours and perhaps you could provide substantiation for your accusation of who is a "crook Vegas bankroller"

Notice Gingrich loses badly to Obama. Who’s still supporting this guy besides his crook Vegas bankroller and his lame, dishonest ads? Oh yeah, I forgot, Gingrich will dazzle the nation in debates and everything will change! LMAO! Gingrich almost was invisible in the last 2 debates, but the great debater will win the general election in the debates. Keep dreaming Newties!

I’d vote for Donald Duck over Obama.

I think you've got a tagline there!

You state that: “Mitt Romney is CURRENTLY trying to force Catholic hospitals in MA to commit abortions, which they believe to be murder. He argues that it is fine because it is the STATE government that is violating religious freedom rather than the federal government doing it.”

Could you please provide a link to verify this statement? Thanks.

http://bostoncatholicinsider.wordpress.com/2012/02/23/did-romney-lie-about-cardinal-omalley-to-the-nation-during-the-wednesday-debate/ gives a rundown of how Romneycare ended up forcing Catholic hospitals to give contraceptives and abortifacients.

I could try to look up the other part too, if you like - that Romney says it’s OK because it’s a state and not the feds. I think he’s been pretty clear on saying that’s why he opposes Obamacare and not Romneycare. Let me know if you’d like me to document that too.

Massachusetts being one of the most LIBERAL states has that law on the books. Romney had no other option than to have hospitals offer the “morning after” pill in cases of incest, rape, or to save the life of the mother. You sound like a very nice person in your profile, however, if you've never been raped, etc. you can never understand.

As the link I gave shows, the issue was whether the conscience clause in a previous law was trumped by the Romneycare law, and it was Romney himself who first assured people that the conscience clause would still be in effect and then after it was too late for anybody to change the vote he said that Romneycare trumped any conscience clause - and that Catholic hospitals would thus be forced to commit what they believe to be murder.

If a raped woman wants to get the “morning after pill” there are secular hospitals she could go to. There is no reason to force Catholic hospitals to commit what they believe to be murder. This is not about access to healthcare. This is about the government FORCING individuals and associations to violate their own religious beliefs.

Romney personally thought it would be the right thing to do. So if he personally thinks it would be the right thing to marry multiple wives, then would he force all the rest of us to do that too? This is what we have religious freedom protections for - so that one person cannot force everybody else to violate their own religious beliefs, which they would ALWAYS do because they personally thought it was “the right thing to do”.

This instance is different than the public ban on polygamy, because no religion REQUIRES polygamy, and a person can have a religious marriage even if not a legal marriage.

The reason this issue scares the crap out of me is because there is a whole group of people - very powerful people who are allies with both Obama and his owner, George Soros - who believe that forcing conversions to Islam and enslaving or killing anybody who refuses is “the right thing to do”.

And if Mitt Romney is our nominee he will be unable to say a word in defense of the constitutional right to freedom of religion - as long as the Islamists accomplish it through STATE capitols rather than Washington DC. He places all his eggs in the “state versus federal issue” basket. Well.... that is exactly how Islamists ALWAYS work. They get their agenda passed in local areas and work out from there.

So if we nominate Mitt Romney we are asking for the end of this country. Literally.

There’s a bunch more I could say about exactly how real and how imminent the Islamist threat is. I’ll just give you the basic gist of how vulnerable we really are right now:

Ahmadinejad has said that he will set the world on fire, and the strong implication is that it will happen in 2012. He wants to do this, since it will prepare the way for the return of the Mahdi. We have Islamist enemies who are way, way more than willing.

Iran is an ally of North Korea, which has nukes and recently acted like they don’t much care so much any more what happens to their nukes. Could be because they’ve already given one to Iran, to act as their surrogate. Pakistan’s nukes under AQ Khan include a bunch that have gone missing. So there are nukes available to Iran even before they manufacture their own - which is just a matter of time anyway. So the nukes are available.

At the same time, Chavez has also agreed to allow Iranian missiles to be launched from Venezuela - well within range of the US using Iran’s current launch capabilities - so Iranian nukes could reach us at any time. We have Islamists who are able.

And recently Rep Peter King (IIRC) came out saying that at the very minimum we have thousands of Hezbollah operatives in the United States and that at least some of them are taking orders directly from Iran. Iran has been sending Hamas and Hezbollah operatives on direct unchecked flights from Iran to Venezuela, which is just a hop, step, and a skip from our defenseless southern border - which Eric Holder has sued to keep wide open to anybody who waltzes in unchecked. Holder has also been arming the drug cartels in Mexico, which are known allies of Islamist terrorists.

These are Islamists within our midst who are ready at any minute to carry out the Islamist coup.

And they are allied with a George Soros who has said that he is afraid America would win the war on terror because then the 2 great evils that he as God needs to fight would be strong - America and capitalism. According to top democrat colleagues of the producer of “We Will Not Be Silenced”, George Soros told both Obama and Hillary in the 2088 primary season that he was planning on destroying the US; Hillary was not on board with that, but Obama was.

Which fits right in with Obama’s statements to the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010. In March of 2010 the Egyptian ambassador said on Arab TV that Obama had privately told him that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda, and that after he got Obamacare passed he would focus on the Islamic agenda. And since Obamacare has been passed, majority-Muslim countries that were our allies in the war on terror have been replaced with Islamist regimes (Muslim Brotherhood, AQ, and/or Salafist). That is part of the “Muslim agenda” - agreed upon by all sects of Islam - of the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia.

So all these Islamists are waiting for, to bring “Arab Spring” Islamization to the US, is the signal from the Islamists that it is time - Islamists who are allied to George Soros. So we’ve got communists and Islamists all aligned against the US right now and the White House is held by a rabidly-power-grabbing man who has always aligned himself with both communists and Islamists and who is the chosen puppet of Soros, who has sworn to destroy the US.

There are a variety of ways that the communist-Islamist alliance can give the signal that it is time to begin the systematic take-down of the USA. It could be another run on the bank to collapse the economy. Could be race riots.

The most effective way, though, would be an EMP attack by Iran, which would disable not only the financial world but communications, food, water, gas, and electricity delivery for a long time. The ensuing chaos would give the perfect opportunity for the Hezbollah sleeper cells (that have been quietly surrounding us, shielded by Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano who have been busily arming drug cartels and groping old nuns and children) to make their move and take over state capitols and from there to overtake the whole country except perhaps pockets of resistance.

We are in deep, deep trouble. The python has almost squeezed the very life out of us. And the Soros-run media keeps us busy swatting away at the gnats of whether Sandra Fluke is a slut, or whether she should have Catholics pay for her birth control and abortion.

You obviously have no idea what MA is like! This is an absolute delusional remark: “So if he personally thinks it would be the right thing to marry multiple wives, then would he force all the rest of us to do that too?”

I've met Romney and he is a good man, intelligent, down to earth and a decent husband, father & grandfather. A man who loves this country. There are no skeletons in this man's closet! So I will vote for Gov. Romney who is the only candidate that can start to get this country back on track. It's obvious with the delegate count that Santorum & Gingrich are done. Of all 4 candidates Romney is the MOST electable. All Republicans should now get behind the candidate that will be nominated and start attacking Obama. The Republican party is looking like clowns!!

I don’t doubt he’s a good man. I do doubt whether he has any clue who this nation’s enemies are or how they are using people like him to accomplish their purposes.

A little bit of knowledge is a very, very dangerous thing.

If Romney is barely squeaking by when the media is friendly to him because they know he would eliminate the unconstitutionality of Obamacare as a driving force in the general election - then how is he going to fare when the media is against him? The best support I can give him is, “Well, at least he’s not Obama.”

I don’t buy the claim that he is electable. And I really don’t want to have to vote for somebody who has spit on freedom of religion.
