Mitt Romney leads President Obama in the first Gallup national daily tracking poll.
Romney took 47 percent support from surveyed registered voters, while Obama took 45 in a poll conducted between April 11 and April 15. Romney's edge though is within the poll's three point margin of error.
Independents tipped the scale in favor of Romney, going for the former Massachusetts governor 45 percent to 39.

“Too many creatures vote for a living.”
Good point. I recall one Freeper referring to them as “Entitlement Zombies.”
What's sad is I think the much better candidates (Palin the non-candidate, Cain, Perry, and Gingrich should also have beaten Obama and we'd have a much better POTUS.
Look at all the “Blue” states: The union (public and private) employees and the “gimme” crowd are either parallel with or outnumber the producing taxpayers.
It’s THE commonality of all “Blue” states.
Another good point. It’s the purple states where it will be decided. Virginia and North Carolina are turning purple. On the bright side is that a backlash against Obama’s economic record is building in Pennsylvania and Michigan. The geographic red/blue map we’re used to may have a different pattern this time.

That is 100% correct...
“Its the purple states where it will be decided. Virginia and North Carolina are turning purple.”
Yes - the assholes from MA, NY, CT, etc. pollute those states.
PA, MI and OH could all go GOP this election, making up for VA and NC. That’s where a VP from one of those “Rust Belt” states could loom HUGE.
Yep...just follow the locusts and see where they congregate.
Gingrich has been my choice from the beginning, but I am a realist and it is not in the cards for him to be nominated. Romney is the only alternative to Obama at this time.
No offense, but I don’t campaign for guys with liberal/progressive records like Romney’s. I don’t put up signs for them in my front yard and there will be no campaign for them on FR!! Whether or not you get banned is completely up to you. You’ve left and come back again more than once already. I’m guessing you really don’t know the difference between conservatism and progressivism. You seem to be a tad confused on our purposes here.
Romney is NOT the only alternative to Obama if we act and you aren’t a realist, sweetie; you’re acting like a quitter.
The Republican Party does not now, nor has it ever, belonged to any particular faction. Four months is more than enough time to turn this show boat around.
I could see Romney winning PA and/or CO.
But now the answer is to give Obama 4 more years so he can absolutely destroy the United States and leave it to Conservatives who will have either nothing left to rebuild or we'll watch how Obama installs himself permanently into the Presidency? I will not give him 8 years to entrench his liberal tentacles into every aspect of our lives. And, yes, when I typed "tentacles" it originally posted as "testicles"! Which Obama has none of either.
Sending a message to the GOP-e is a bad idea. They will never get the message. Why? Because they don't make decisions based on what's good for the country.
They're nothing more than a collection of idiots, sabateurs, and media butt sniffers.
They must be defeated.
Whether we do it from inside the party or from outside the party, neither scenario would be easy.
But they must be defeated.
And let's not forget.
We need to defeat Obama.
The hutzpah of a total stranger asking a woman her weight!
Hate to break it to you, but Newt has lost. He’s broke, he has said in recent days if Romney is the nominee, he will support him 100%. He is staying in to add another conservative voice at the convention, but even he knows he’s out of it. I believe his campaign bounced a check yesterday. Sad, I liked him too, but I face reality when it’s right in front of me.
“Obama has never faced defeat in his life.”
(D-IL) Bobby Rush whipped Obama in an election.
Do you ever check your thoughts first before they spill out onto Free Republic thread pages and the Eternal Internet?
Obama’s strategy has always been to get all of his opponents disqualified from opposing him in elections - In any way possible.
SEE: Ryan Vs Obama in Illinois
When Obama was in HS “attempting” to play basketball - He would angrily stomp off the court in practice because his own teammates were so much better players than he could ever be.
He was only a bench-sitter on a Championship HS basketball team.
He never played college basketball.....
Sarah Palin was a tough scrambler and shot the winning foul shot that made her HS team the Alaska Girl’s State Championship Team.
This taught Obama that he could only win in life be “fixing” the game by getting his opponents eliminated in any way possible.
His technique was and still is too “fix” the numbers of voters by any means possible.
- No Votor ID Cards
- Get Illegal Aliens to vote
- Get convicted felons to vote
- Buy votes by giving away your money
- Put the New Black Pansies out at polling places
- Get corrupt Secretaries of State(s) in office
- Get radicals to vote many times
- Crank up the dead vote
The old time-tested LBJ formula(s)
