Poll: Obama-Romney race tied; Obama supporters more energized (CNN to 0bama's rescue! 52% approval)
Communist News Network ^ | 6-1-12 | Paul Steinhauser

Posted on 06/02/2012 3:30:03 AM PDT by GR_Jr.

Washington (CNN) - The race for the White House remains very close, according to a new national poll, partly because neither President Barack Obama nor Republican challenger Mitt Romney have a clear advantage on issue number one - the economy.

A CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that Obama supporters are more energized right now than those backing Romney.

According to the poll, 49% of registered voters say that if the November election were held today, they would vote for Obama, while 46% say they would cast a ballot for Romney, the unofficial GOP presidential nominee. The president's three point margin is within the survey's sampling error. Obama had a nine point advantage in CNN's last national poll, which was conducted in early April.

The president's approval rating continues to hover around the 50% mark. Fifty-two percent give Obama thumbs up on the job he's doing in the White House, with 47% saying they disapprove of how he's handling his duties.

The survey also indicates Americans are divided in the battle for Congress, with 48% saying they would back the Democratic candidate in their congressional district and 45% saying they would support the GOP candidate.

I'd love to see the internals on this one. 55% registered Democrats and 45% CNN employees perhaps?......or maybe this is from The Onion

I can understand Obama supporters are more energized than Romney supporters.

We just finished a hellish, bruising primary where Romney was not a clear choice of most.

As we head toward the convention and our side realizes we have nowhere to go, we will, reluctantly , coalesce around Romney and get energized to clean the people’s house of this marxist fraud.

Well, I agree with the poll in the sense that none of us are thrilled to have Romney as our nominee. :-)

More seriously though, I’m not buying what CNN is selling here. Or rather, I don’t believe the energy they claim his base feels is going to translate into turnout on Election Day. I suspect there are going to be several traditionally Democratic constituent groups who will vote for Obama this time in the same percentages as 2008, but not in the same numbers.

Backstabber RomneyCARE is disliked, if not despised
for his endless BACKSTABBING.

RomneyCARE cannot win.

Any conservative can win.

Romney should pull out. NOW.

but his phenotype (what he displays as a ‘shapeshifter’)
changes daily — like the political chameleon he is.

Romney is the Republican candidate.

We didn't want him, but he's what we got.

This is NOT going to change.

Anybody staying home, doing a write-in or voting third party is casting a vote for Obama.

The most important thing is to get the Marxist/Muslim usurper pos out of our White House!

“In the battle for crucial independent voters, the poll indicates Romney holds a 51%-39% advantage.”

If this part of the poll is true combined with their obvious oversampling of Rats it means Romney is going to win by at least 12 points.

Hi FRiend. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE.

Romney is NOT the candidate yet.
Romney has about 660 of what he needs, and he got
THAT BY CHEATING.

Mr. RomneyCARE is a DNC poser supported by
Soros, Carter, Clinton, Kerry, Obama, and ... you?

15. Which of the following statements best describes your view of the economy: It will only get better
if Barack Obama is re-elected President, It will only get better if Mitt Romney is elected President,
It will get better if either Obama or Romney is elected or It will not get better if either Obama or
Romney is elected.
May 29-31
2012
Will get better if Obama is re-elected 28%
Will get better if Romney is elected 31%
Will get better if either Obama or Romney is elected 19%
Will not get better if either Obama or Romney is elected 21%
No opinion 2%

1) The dim party is totally unified... they are all hard leftists and those that are not... are fleeing that party. The news has several lifelong dims switching to republican in the last week.

2) The gop/e has destroyed unity within our party. The gop/e hate 40% of the party which are what they deem... HARDCORE RIGHT WING NUT CASES.

Some of you that are going to vote for romney are not enthused for romney. You may vote for him but most of you know who and what you are voting for... the lesser of two evils. Some of you that believe romney are discounting polls like this. When the republican party has lost my vote for their candidate... things are about as bad for our party as they can get.

Have any of you been paying attention the the gop/e leadership. They say romney's no taxes pledge is just a negotiating ploy. Levin played audio clips of the likes of graham, issakson, cornyn, mcconnell and others in leadership positions stating that they are ready to “RAISE REVENUE ENHANCEMENTS ALONG WITH CUTTING SPENDING. THEY REFERENCE A 3:1 RATIO OF TAX INCREASES TO SPENDING CUTS. tipp o’neill gave Reagan that same deal... and as it has been with every deal like this that was ever made in our entire HISTORY... it was nothing by a lie from a government of liars... seated in the city of lies!

What nonsense.

This election isn’t going to be close. Not sure of internals but don’t need to be. Registered vs Likely alone shows you this is a prop up piece.

Obama is under 50% in Cali but CNN claims he’s 52% nationally???

BS.

Obama at most will pull 42-43% on election day.

There it is:

Independent voters are breaking 5-4 against obama in this poll and they still claim he’s got 49-46 overall. That’s BS on it’s face.

You can’t lose the independent (swing) vote by 20% and make it up. They represent 40% of the overall voters in America. So they 20% is equivalent to about 8% of the overall vote. So tell me how are you down 8% in the overall vote, and registered R and D are about even yet you somehow are up 3% in the overall poll?

Simple the poll is CRAP.

Swing voters will be breaking 5-3 to 2-1 against Obama election night, he doesn’t have a prayer to win. He’s got an absolute peak at 42-43% and the way he’s campaigning so far I’d say he’ll bs lucky to get 40%

Who thought a year ago when Conservatives were saying “ANYBODY BUT oBAMA” we would actually get the anybody? It’s time to “swallow the bitter pill”, “eat crow”, “gangrene has set in, time to cut off the foot”. I do not believe voting third party or not voting will result in obama being removed from office. I also believe that electing Romney will not begin to solve our problems but at least we will be able to look forward to elections in 2014 and 2016. If obama is re-elected I believe any future elections will be a complete sham. A bumper sticker that read “VOTE for the RINO, IT’S IMPORTANT” would be in order but may dampen enthusiasm for those that have it.

There, that does it Romney now has my official endorsement, my promise to vote for the Republican nominee will be honored, I’m also going to send a small check to the NRC, probably with a note attached, and a small check to the Romney campaign, with a small check attached, and a check to Newt to help pay off his obligations and a note attached thanking him for what he has done for Conservatives, Republicans and the Nation and for stepping forward again in these troubled times and pointing us to the right path even though we chose to turn left.

Can’t argue with that. Those who claim BO & MR {notable initials
both} are two sides of the same coin need to ponder the pros-
pect of a couple of Supreme Court holes which will occur during
the next four years. Romney has the potential to stumble onto
some acceptable candidates. No such luck with Obama.
