Skip to comments.Rasmussen: Romney 269, Obama 243 (Electoral Votes)
Posted on 06/14/2012 11:29:37 AM PDT by nhwingut
Were a long way from November 6 (145 days for those who are keeping score at home), but Rasmussens latest polling of likely voters in states across the land shows Mitt Romney currently leading President Barack Obama in the quest for electoral votes. In fact, if the 9 key swing states were each to go according to Rasmussens latest polling, and if the 41 other states (plus Washington, D.C.) were each to go as they would be expected to go in a tight race, Obama would have 243 electoral votes and Romney 269 enough for a tie (and an almost inevitable victory in the House of Representatives, where the 50 state delegations would each cast one vote to determine the president).

In the sanctity of the Voting Booth, millions of voters who don’t want to appear racist to a pollster are going to vote for “Not Obama!”
It will be a landslide.
The joke’s on them, though. In the end, they’ll just get our Socialist.
Bums local 101!!!
I feel it could be a landslide as well, but we thought people lied to pollsters last election and look what happened.
If there was a tie for Vice President, the Senate would choose the new Vice President--so it is important that the Republicans get a majority in the Senate in the November 2012 election. The Senators would vote as individuals. That has happened only once before, in 1837.
Obama won’t be anywhere near 243 on election day.
The EC college will not be as blow out as other elections lost by such a large popular vote margin as Obama’s loss will be because of population distribution differences these days, but he has at most a 42-43% popular vote total, and that’s if he runs a perfect campaign.... and have you seen his campaign? Its anything but perfect.
Reality is, he keeps going the way he is going, he won’t hit 40% of the popular vote.
even with the vote stealing I am really beginning to think he is going to lose.
It's a big union state. Add to the 115% voter turnout in Philly. It's hard to overcome. There are a lot of cuts going on right now in PA. As usual, the dems are winning the PR war and making reps look bad.
Also the un-living, the un-documented, un-registered, and un-released felons.
I maintain that polling is inaccurate in this race, due to race: Many people will say they will vote for Obama so as not to appear “Racist” to the person taking the poll, and yet will vote for Romney when in the privacy of the voting booth.
On the other hand, it is probably best to keep in mind that this factor may be more than offset by systemic voter fraud from the Dems.
difficult to think Mitt is further ahead in Wisc than Fla. As the article says the polls were taken at different times. Mid July we’ll know if this is close or a blowout.
Please don't insult the Hispanics and he is no friend of mine. A better saying would be "Get your (&*G*&%&#&) black A$$ out of here"
Have to wonder with employed people in Wis choosing not to pay dues just how will they collect from the unemployed? This is just noise. Throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks.
It is a sickening thought to see that so many people still support Bo. What a depraved society we have become.
“In the sanctity of the Voting Booth, millions of voters who dont want to appear racist to a pollster are going to vote for Not Obama!”
I hope you are right but that’s what we were thinking three and a half years ago.
Not only is that correct but this is the time of year when hiring would normally be happening. It ain’t-— and unless there is a large momentum change in the next 30 days or so then there is simply not enough time left before election for anything to happen that might make Obamuzzie look better than a low rent dumbass. And he will know a beating is coming so watch out for his frantic, last ditch, sewercide maneuvers
Yes , with 12 congressman as of 2013 NJ will mostly have 6D and 6R. Jon Runyan mostly favored to hold NJ-3
He better sweep by 300+ or there will be no “mandate” and Romney will rvert to RINO weakness, who am I kidding he will anyways...
“Unfortunately, such narrow leads are just statistical noise. All it tells me is Romney is competitive, something I’d expect of almost any GOP nominee against this terrible a president.”
I wouldn’t expect to see the polls “firm up” to the point where I could trust them as being a “stable representation” of how the vote looks to go until late September or early October.
Till then we can hope, but better not to be overly optimistic.
I expect to see post after post after post after post after post (had enough?) right here on FreeRepublic exclaiming how it’s going to be “a landslide”. I don’t expect that. Instead, I expect this to be a VERY close election (electoral-college-wise). It could even end up in the House .
We can only hope the Pretender has met his demise. I would even vote for Mickey Mouse, or Pat Paulsen before I would vote for the Illegal in the White Hut...
Oh, this should send the queer media, and the MSNBC Klux Klan spinning off into space.
Expect a new wave of even greater hate, lies, and ridicule now.
