The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney earning 50% of the vote and President Obama attracting 43% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another three percent (3%) are undecided.

I am really interested in the Ohio polls.
BUT HEY! Obama’s locked up the vast homosexual vote!
I’m sure this will go up and down till November, with many more Obama surprises thrown in. But if these numbers actually reflect the opionons of the people, then they show that the people are not falling for Obama’s continuous, blatantly political games.
Should be a fun night in the Dem cable channel. Most there have been claiming this will HELP Obama.
First time Romney has hit the 50% mark, that in itself is significant. Could be a tipping point. I think the whole gay marriage thing has shifted something. Expect all sorts of dirty stuff coming now from the hounds of hell.
You mean the new, improved HOMO-BAMA isn’t selling?
Don’t worry....the celebrity/gay vote will kick in here any minute and rescue obama....
In all seriousness, this is going to put some freepers over the edge, namely, the “obama can’t lose” crowd. What are they going to do if obama is still behind by 5 points come October? Start actively campaigning for obama so that they can prove to everyone just how conservative they are, because as we all know, all true conservatives advocate the defeat of Romney at all costs?
This could get interesting......
“I am really interested in the Ohio polls.”
You are right, nice to have a lead nationally, but its those state polls that will tell the true story.
Hope it is a landslide of 1980 and 1984 proportions against the Kenyan-Marist.
Critical Endorsements and Support for Romney
I’m telling you....Michelle does not want a second term...otherwise she would be out there campaigning.
I thought about that very point last night. This is a time of extraordinary evil. If we do not sink to our knees and seek the power of God to overcome this enveloping evil we will be overwhelmed by it an there will be all kinds of suffering ahead of us.
What Obama has done is unprecedented. He has, in some measure, unleashed the hounds of Hell.
Imagine if we had a Candidate even close to Reagan running against Obama. It would be a slaughter. In the popular vote and electoral vote.
I think the real number is 55%Romney/45% The One since these polls notoriously oversample Dems.
It’s a long way until November. This is not the time to start doing the happy dance.
Good news. May mean Romney can win without my having to pulling the lever for him, just the down ballot conservatives.
i tend to believe in times of economic strife and worry people tend to shift conservative, its happening all around us. Peoples attitudes have shifted in the last few months towards a more conservative attitude.
Like all organizations that conduct public opinion polls, Rasmussen Reports weights its data to reflect the population at large (see methodology). It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. Obama's numbers are almost always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That's because some of the president's most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.

He easily can close the gap and Menendez is way below the magic 50% number and it is the same % Obama is @ in the Rassey Pole/
I don't mean to get ahead of myself, but this is may turn out to be a combo of Reagan 84' and Newt's Contract in 94' in terms of the number and the seed change we will see....
The press and the likes of Smucky Chumer will so stunned the day after they will be mumbling to themselves...
It don't want to jinx us, but it is gonna be a flippin' blow out like we have never seen, 2010 on Steroids...
If there is anyone who is capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, it’s Romney.
Not so sure, I think even they know that it is all lies.
This liar will say whatever the listening audience wants to hear and after he gets what he wants, do whatever he pleases.
I don’t know where you’re getting your info but she’s out there. She’s been to Virginia often enough and is giving a campaign speech at the Virginia Tech graduation today.
Of all which says that Virginia isn’t a lock - if Zero is spending resources here.
As I predicted, Romney got a bump from the gay marriage thing, but I think 6 months from now it will be inconsequential. Remember, polls are just a snapshot.
“Hope it is a landslide of 1980 and 1984 proportions against the Kenyan-Marist”
Unfortuanely it will never happen, the NEA has done their job very well brain washing the Kids over the last 30 years.
and to top it offf, just out.....Rasmussen : #Wisconsin Senate: #Thompson (R) 50%, #Baldwin (D) 38%...
If he's up nationally by 7, he's up in ALL of the swing states, even if by a point or 2. He's probably down even more in NY and Cali, but those states are gone anyway
This is impossible. Don’t people know that Romney was mean to a kid in high school?
And don’t forget the dog-eater’s vote and the hoodie vote and the illegal alien vote and the dead vote and the criminal vote and the teet-sucking liberal vote and the teet-sucking Occupy vote and the massive NOW (aka feminize) vote and of course the room-temperature IQ club of Hollywood vote.
Romney was my second to last choice (Paul was my last), but I’d support Sponge Bob to get ride of the Communist in the White House!
and the guy who was supposedly bullied, his family has come out today and told the WH to stop using their brother as a political football, talk about a rudderless campaign backfiring all over the shop.
And I’d support Patrick.
Actually, Patrick would make a damn good PResident.
“I am really interested in the Ohio polls.”
Yes. The “national average” means relatively little.
What will really count are polls from about a dozen battleground states.
Somehow, I just don’t see the blue states “changing sides” this time, even if we saw a few normally-red states “go blue” in 2008. The lefties don’t change their spots, ever.
Ohio, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia.
Not Ras. He actually has a slight advantage to the GOP, based on his voter samplings... And this is likely voters, so this is probably as accuarate as it gets
I would vote for Plankton, he seems really passionate.
They are now in a white house meeting to decide who will get the blame for this poll rating. It is for sure that mac daddy will not get ANY blame as all his decisions are perfect, misunderstood or ranting of the conservatives.
Everyone must understand all that he has done for America i.e.:
Loss of respect for American leadership
Runaway Departments, EPA, HHS, Education, TSA, etc.
and the list goes on and on.
Excellent news all over, especially this one, vs. Baldwin
Time will tell.
ok, here’s the test:
Who would vote for Squidward over obama?
(my hand is up)
Actually Mr. Krabs would be the best choice, he’s a good businessman, and he served in the Navy.
The guy who was reportedly bullied has since passed away but family members are saying that this event never happened. Even the people who apparently first told this story are now saying they never actually saw the event. The story is starting to unravel.
Is Homer Simpson running?
Ras uses rolling 3-day which means Monday’s poll could be even uglier for Bobo. Like Moochelle ugly.
She is out there campaigning. She is not only at rallies, but she is on every TV program imaginable. She is everywhere.
And then we’ll have
Romney grandfather: “DARK SKIN IS CURSE FROM GOD”
This poll makes me smile.
