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.

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......

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.

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.

Watch NJ. Menendez is @ 43% and his (R) challenger who is noted a bit of less than stellar campaign=er is at 33%This is flippin' corrupt Jersey and we 7 months out...

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...

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.

Rising tide lifts all boats. If Romney's up by 4 or more, he has the EVs in hand.

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

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.

“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.

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

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.:

Massive Debt
Massive unemployment
Loss of respect for American leadership
Runaway Departments, EPA, HHS, Education, TSA, etc.

and the list goes on and on.

I am averse to mindless optimism. It's a seductive form of denial, which is the most dangerous thing there is. However, the recent North Carolina vote rejecting same-sex marriage might be a forecast, heralding the rejection of decadence by the majority of Americans. I.e., it might be a sign that the American people have come to their senses.

Time will tell.

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.

Had to suffer through PMSNBC for a bit last night. They were all having leg tingles over Zero's homo-lovin'. As far as they are concerned, this is Zero's Defining Issue and it will raise up an army of "young voters" to sweep him back into office.

This poll makes me smile.
