Rasmussen : Wisconsin Romney 47%, Obama 44%
Rasmussen Reports ^

Posted on 06/13/2012 9:35:48 AM PDT by sunmars

Mitt Romney now leads President Obama for the first time in Wisconsin where the president's support has fallen to its lowest level to date.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Romney with 47% of the vote to Obama’s 44%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Prior to this survey, Obama's support in the state has ranged from 45% to 52%, while Romney has earned 41% to 45%. Last month, the numbers were Obama 49%, Romney 45%. The president led his likely Republican challenger by 11 points in March - 52% to 41%.

Just last week Republican Governor Scott Walker won a special recall election prompted by Democrats outraged over his successful move to limit collective bargaining rights for some unionized public employees in order to reduce Wisconsin's budget deficit.

Most voters (51%) in the state view public employee unions unfavorably, while 46% share a favorable opinion of them. This includes 33% with a Very Unfavorable view of the unions and 27% with a Very Favorable one. The president draws overwhelming support from voters who view public employee unions favorably, while Romney draws equally heavy support from those who view them unfavorably.

Forty-seven percent (47%) of voters in Wisconsin approve of the job Obama is doing, while 52% disapprove. These findings include 27% who Strongly Approve of the president’s job performance and 44% who Strongly Disapprove. These ratings are comparable to those measured nationally in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

Romney is viewed favorably by 49% of Wisconsin voters and unfavorably by 45%. These numbers include Very Favorable reviews from 23% and Very Unfavorable ones by 30%.

This poll is fabricated. Obama won the exit polls the other night by 9 pts or so. I know this because the MSM told me so.

There is no way in any world that Obama loses wisconsin and Michigan but wins Virginia and north Carolina. It. Will. Not. Happen.

North Carolina may be a stretch this time, but I bet he wins Virginia again.

Obama will not win anything but the deep blue states. He will lose the national election by at least 7% and more likely 9%-10%. The economy is stalling again. How well do you think his polling numbers will be after another month or two like this one where the job report craters and previous months are re-adjusted down yet again. Romney is already beating him in nearly every Likely Voter poll nationally and he has not even gotten a boost yet from being on the national stage at the GOP convention. He is already beating the O at fundraising - a sitting president beating out-raised by a challenger. LOL!

This election is Romney's to lose. I don't think that will happen. His campaign already is highly organized, well funded, national, and effective compared to the pathetic McCain abortion of 2008.

Like him or not, everything Romney has attempted to date has been characterized by determination. There will be no insane "suspension" of this campaign.

You might look back to the campaigns of Reagan and Nixon, who garnered serious union support, to assist your envisioning.

Awesome, we will replace Obama with Obama this fall.

I have an idea. Why don't you draw a nice hot bath, take a few slugs of a decent scotch, a fresh razor, and open a vein. Geez. Life must not be worth living for the likes of you.

I think Obama is secretly hoping that ObamaCare will be found UnConstitutional. That way he figures he’ll be able to excite his base.

Well, who knows what he is privately hoping for. But we can be sure he will attempt to make the best of whatever transpires. This asshole won't be going down without a fight-- you can take that to the bank.

Maybe, but if it is closer, it will be a different map. Zero has consistently pilled +6 in Virginia, no matter how poorly he has done overall. Black candidates have historically done well here, including electing the first black governor in the US Doug Wilder, when the state was much more conservative overall. Romney may well win in a landslide, butWisconsin, Iowa, and perhaps even Michigan will fall before Virginia.

Virginia will not go for the O. They did last time but he is losing independents by 15-20% depending on the poll this year. There is nothing on the economy that will improve between now and November. Romney is well vetted and as long as he doesn’t blow bubbles with his drool, he should win. Now, I don’t think Romney is a great conservative, but as long as he doesn’t veto what the House and Senate do on the budget we should be okay. He will appoint conservative justices, otherwise he will be a one term president.

Apparently this sort of response is acceptable on Free Republic against those not cheerleading for Romney.
