Posted on 06/30/2012 11:22:07 AM PDT by nhwingut
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows President Obama attracting 46% of the vote, while Mitt Romney earns 44%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
The presidents is enjoying a modest bounce following the Supreme Court ruling on the health care law. This is the first time he has held the lead on consecutive days in more than a month.
A presidents Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the presidents Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 50% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends).
Satan seems to have good timing.
I honeskty could not give 2 sh*ts anymore. This nation is dead. Absolutely dead. Wake me up when the shooting starts... But I highly doubt ‘Amerikans’ will want to be bothered since there is soooo mich great reality tv starting back up in the fall... Oh and the new call of duty video game
I have been saying for some time now, visions of a GOP blowout in this election are fantasy.
Demographics have caught up with us. There just aren’t enough of us left any more.
The Kenyan is a heavy favorite to be re-elected, and he will continue our stampede towards economic collapse in his second term. The saddest thing is that half the country, or more, will be wildly cheering him on the whole way as he does so.
America was great while it lasted. I’m going to miss her.
Stupidity of that level should hurt—badly. The problem is....it does not.
It appears Alexis de Tocqueville was right. Once the freeloaders figure it out...
It really is sad. I am just sick of the Supreme Court! I can’t believe how many people I know just don’t get it! AND they don’t give a crap either as long as they “think” someone is going to provide for them....Amazing! Wait until the TRUTH knocks them on their butts in a few years! Then it will be TOO late!
Way too many people want their entitlements. A few people who were celebrating the Supreme Court decision were bragging to me about the "free" healthcare they will be "getting".
This is what we are up against...ignorant morons.
This is why we deserve this asshat of a scumbag, it’s like Jefferson said, “A people deserve the leaders it has”
Funny how the psyche works, particularly with the weak minded.
Unemployment 8.2%, but when it briefly dipped to 8.1% (after a LOT of statistical shenanigans) you would have thought 0bama was a miracle worker, even though there were more people out of work than ever before.
Gas $3.00+ a gallon - the dims are crowing that predictions of $5.00 a gallon gas were "scare tactics" and 0bama's policies are working.
Get away with murder - Agent Brian Terry; need I say more?
All of this falls on deaf ears and moronic brains though when you have the constant brainwashing from the MSM.
We could be quickly approaching a time when once more we must decide if we will "... pledge our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor"
Although Gallup’s Daily tracking has him at 47%. And beating Romney by 3. So it’s pretty close.
Hopefully once this ObamaTax lie gets traction. And the Tea Party gets mobilized this summer we can bring his numbers down.
Just a lot of low info voters who read yahoo/aol headlines and marvel at how cool Obama is, despite economy.
You can take back the country if you want to. Without firing a shot.
“It was great while it lasted” is what you say to a tramp when you’re tired of her.
No need for violence, if enough people quit paying taxes. Trouble is, not enough people are serious about restoring America.
First, it would stand to reason ObamaCastro would get a bump from the
favorable SC and fawning press coverage.
Second, most decent hardworking people I know are on vacation or
too busy working or studying to answer a poll.
Third, I think the House
have not been CONTINUALLY EDUCATING people this past year
on IPAB and other BAD THINGS ABOUT OBAMACARE.
THey stopped educating. YOU CAN NEVER STOP EDUCATING ABOUT
NOW WE HAVE TO EDUCATE OUR NEIGHBORS.
IF ON MEDICARE< IT”S 500 BILLION CUT.
IF A SMALL BUSINESS, you will be taxed. You will have to report
your employee income, you will have additional health care reporting
to the IRS. RED TAPE. RED TAPE = COST>
DOCTORS WILL RETIRE. If you get sick, you won’t see a specialist.
They will be retired. THey won’t take new patients.
Romney provides no contrast to pull this off, the GOPE are useless in attracting any votes whatsoever, from either party and conservative insurrgents remain in grave minority.
How else could this be expected to turn out? There is still virtually no real resistance and very little enthusiasm as a result.
Thank you Chief Justice Roberts!
He’ll be reelected.
The one thing I agree 100 percent with Bill O’Reilly is that people love their free stuff. We live in an entitlement society where people want their free goodies. 50 percent of Americans pay NO taxes, that is Obama’s voting base right there..so of course he will be doing well. They are thinking “YAY FREE HEALTHCARE” remember the Obama voter who said before the election that Obama would pay for her food, house, car, etc..that is the mentality that is driving these people. If Obama wins re-election, we are officially Greece, we will be a Socialist country, Obama can come out of the closet and say “Yeah I’m a Socialist” and no one will care. America, she was once a great country, now I fear for our republic more than ever. The Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves right now
It’s becoming “Toke-ville” over Tocqueville....
Ok? Then why are you still here? So you can look at a tracking poll and act like a drama queen?
I’ve seen activist gays with thicker spines than some of the people on this site.
Ya know what’s worse? (if it could be) ... he has the momentum. He actually is getting a BOUNCE from the SCOTUS ruling.
yeah. Romney will bring people around *huge eye roll*
“This is why we deserve this asshat of a scumbag”
What’s this ‘we’, Kemosabe?
The 40% of Americans who really support Obama deserve his deficits and unemployment.
The rest of us deserve a better America.
Media PSYOPS will try to build up Obama and depress our turnout and enthusiasm. but you can only polish a turd so mich. too bad Freeper drama queens fall for it.
As will Jimmy Carter.
Your post echos my sentiments. Been saying the same thing. People getting excited that “this or that” is going to result in a GOP blowout, even a win, is a huge pipe dream.
Sadly, too many of us lurch from one bumper sticker to the next instead of educating ourselves and those around us.
Pity, isn’t it?
I’m with ya.
And my grandson turned me on to Call of Duty. Love it though not quite as nimble as he. =)
Agree completely. This site has become a hangout for limp pussys that have nothing better to do than whine about how the world is picking on them. The fact is that EVERY single election since 2009 with national implications have gone our way. Nothing will change in November and Obama will lose big. Bank on it.
the sad part is what he does won’t work, so they will continue to blame capitalists and conservatives. We will have to sacrifaice more, give more of our work to support the collective. Then they will need to to take all we own for the good of the collective and send us to re-education camps, those who can’t/won’t be re-educatted will never be heard from again being put in to a mass grave out in the desert somewhere.
Demographics have caught up with us. There just arent enough of us left any more.
The truth though many don’t want to believe. It is only going to accelerate over the coming years. We are truly done. America is changing, will change, and become radically different. It can not be stopped and THAT is what is so sad.
Saw the Rasmussen poll this a.m. and was PO`d as well. If, after 40+ months of 8%+ unemployment, $16.5 trillion debt, a disastrous foreign policy, equally disastrous border policy, $3+ per gallon gas, record numbers of actual unemployed, and daily governmental usurpation of Americans` rights and liberties... Obama wins in November, the republic truly is dead.
The left will forevermore have its jackboot on the neck of America through the rest of her dying existence.
Not so sure of that. The GOP convention hasn't even been held yet. Romney is getting no face time as of now. The anti-zero attack ads have not begun. The heavy artillery will not come out until late Sept. and early Oct. It's going to be a tough fight, but I think more people are sick of Obama than you think.
And what the pipe dreamers among us fail to realize is that 29 million Obama voters sat out in 2010. They won’t do that again.
We means all of us, we have done NOTHING to prevent what is going on, we have watched and whined for 30 years and done zero, zip, nada.
If we are so stupid as to allow the media to supress our voting “WE DESERVE” what we are getting.
Or as Jefferson said, “A people get the leaders they deserve”
What was the ratio of Democrat to Republican in the poll?
Obama is going to get crushed in Nov.
The fact that CommieCare has been determined to be a tax doesn’t mean much when over half of the people infesting this country don’t pay taxes anyway. The Supreme Court’s “decision” will have no effect on the election except for maybe bringing out the freeloaders to cast a big “Thank You!” vote to their messiah. They probably would have voted for him anyway.
Today is a hot, sunny summer weekend here at the Jersey shore! "Normal" people aren't at home to answer automated telephone pollsters. They are at the beach, at the pool, in a boat, standing around the barbecue or in the mountains.
(Hmmmmmm. So why am I sitting at home at my computer posting???? I am recovering from an episode of sun poisoning -- a polymorphous light eruption that was caused by a drug I was taking, if you want to get technical -- and am giving my skin a rest! Otherwise, I'd be outside.)
IMO, Obama has been toast since Thursday. He should start to get bids from moving companies.
Also get off your asses and either give money to Americans for prosperity or a conservative senate candidate so they can change this in the future.
Or you can just bitch and flame at me. I choose to be an instrument of change.
I don’t know that for a certainty. I remember as a returned Vet in the pre-1980 election not seeing/hearing much sign of a reversal of political fortune for this country. For all that I can remember, Jimmy Carter’s chances in getting re-elected seemed on the media surface, a done deal.
Only on the day of election, in my precinct, did I come to know how wrong that feeling was. I saw a massive turnout. I saw many people with T shirts for Reagan or against Carter (against polling policy).... I heard the talk in line and I waited for my turn.....
I’m waiting for my turn now in November, and hoping for some real effing change, for a change.
right...except every election that obama has had a hand in personally or through his minions since 11/08 he’s lost big time:
NJ/VA gov races in 2009
Mass senate race in 1/10
Wisconsin recall earlier this month...
i don’t like seeing these polls either but its getting to be like the gay marriage issue- all the polls show a majority in favor of gay marriage but guess what- it almost always gets voted down when its time to go to the booth and vote on it...
Folks it is just a Temporary bump from the Health Care win at the SCOTUS he will drop again after this wears off!!
Currently voters who strongly approve of the presidents job is 26% and those who strongly disapprove is at 41%!!! That is a -15!!!!!
I agree that Obama has been punked in any election that has been even a close referendum on him since he took office.
I disagree that gay marriage being consistently defeated in state referenda/state constitutional amendments is the proper analogy. Obama can be defeated by voters in states with 270+ electoral votes. Gay marriage, regrettably, is headed to the SCOTUS, and with the equal protection jurisprudence being what it is at present, they will negate all of those state victories on that issue.
that’s not my point...
almost every poll taken on gay marriage shows the majority of people in favor of it- yet just about every time people get to cast a vote on gay marriage it goes down....
ditto with mullah obama; this poll gives him high marks or he’s not doing as badly as he should in that poll- yet as illustrated in prior post, whenever there’s been a major state or national election since 11/08, where people can affirm his way of “governing” at the ballot box, he’s been thumped...
someone posted Romney has 23% approval amongst blacks in the state of Georgia- you think they are alone???
It’s not looking at one tracking poll. It’s looking at what has happened to our country over the last several decades.
We were invaded from the South, did nothing about it, and have reached the tipping point to where the entitlement class is now on the verge of completely taking over.
This is no longer a right of center country. It is rapidly approaching a far left one.
Unfortunately, it will only get worse, not better. I wish it weren’t true, but how can it be denied?
Total economic collapse is the only way anything will change. It will be here pretty soon. I hope there is a country left to salvage from the wreckage.
Long time to election day. Try this vertical continuum:
Extreme Conservative/Libertarian who might not vote for Mitt
Hard R who do not always vote
Hard R who will always vote; and always vote R
Swing voter who always vote
Swing voter who only vote when reminded/;motivated
Hard D who always vote; and always vote D
Hard D who do not alwauys vote
Extreme Progressive/Green who might not vote for Obama.
Will Mitt or Obama more motivate their base to vote?
Will Mitt or Obama more motivate their base to work hard to get to the polls, those who are not otherwise motivated to get to the polls?
Early voting will decide this election. Well organized ground troops can sweep a demographic one week at a time. the well organized campaign will dominate the early voting. The actual voting on election day will be a tie and make little difference.
So who is willing to step away from the keyboard and go door-to-door getting their neigbhors to vote early at the library, village hall or vote-mobile in front of the supermarket?
Issues and ideology will not decide the outcome, Smart work and hard work will decide the outcome.
To expect to win without hard work “because we are right” is affirmative action. Hard work should be rewarded with the win.
(Never, never, never, never give up. - W Churchill BUMP)
Don’t forget his stroke of the EO pen that gave 1 million illegals the right to stay here flaunting Congress’ direct rejection of the “DREAM” act.
His promises of open borders, free lunches for baby mamma's, gays, college students, and every other group that has been told that they are “owed” something just because, will vote for him. Besides he looks so cool jogging on strange and in the words of his Vice President, he's clean and articulate.
The GOP will lose. They lost went “they” chose Romney.
Good grief. If citizens haven’t figured it out by now, they are not going to get it ever. There are just too many freeloaders, too many ignorant, too many devoid of morality. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t fight but evil is convincing the easily manipulated human that evil is good and good is evil.
