Obama Trails Romney 48-43 Presidential Approval Index Rating Slides to -22
Gateway Pundit ^ | June 23,2012 | Jim Hoft

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting 48% of the vote, while President Obama earns 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The president picks up support from just 35% of white voters overall. That’s eight points below the 43% of the white vote he won in 2008. The gender gap is now at 11 points. That’s little changed from the 12-point gap in 2008. Romney leads by 11 among men, and the candidates are even among women.

Obama’s presidential approval index slid to -22 this week.

“The president picks up support from just 35% of white voters overall. That’s eight points below the 43% of the white vote he won in 2008.”

So, since the marxist was elected, race relations have actually deteriorated according to the MSM.

They will say that in 2008 57% of whites were racists, now it’s up to 65%.

I wonder if Obama and his filthy tribe are suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Using that logic, 98% of blacks are racists.
Whitey ain't so bad after all...

Blacks can’t be racist. Don’t you know that?

A few observations:

The media has been recently unable to hide the bad news regarding Obama. As a result his numbers are tanking. People are starting to pay attention.

I suspect Obama is trying to get his scandals out of the way right now. That will allow his handlers to declare the scandals as "old news" in September.

Obama can't hide from the economy and the jobs reports. Obama has a record. Come October the Romney ads will spend a lot of time reviewing that record.

43% is a very bad election poll number for a sitting President. I expect some very desperate moves soon by the Obama team.

“I expect some very desperate moves soon by the Obama team.”

I think you mean “more very desperate moves”.

Student loans forgiven, anyone?

I hope this holds. Maybe people are finally waking up. Monday, probably, we’ll see if the Supreme Court has woken up to the threat that ObamaCare and the Mexican Invasion are to the Constitution.

About a month ago, Romney led Obama by 8 points in the Rasmussen - within a week that lead collapsed and Obama was back ahead by 1 - I’m hoping this time the lead holds up big through November......
