President Obama is leading Mitt Romney thanks to a bump from last Thursday's high court healthcare ruling, according to a survey released Saturday from conservative polling outlet Rasmussen.
Rasmussen's latest daily presidential tracking poll finds Obama with 46 percent support from likely voters to Romney's 44.

If more people are against Obamacare, how does this make sense??????
Imprimatur of legitimacy.
So Much for those who said Roberts did us a favor.
Makes him look presidential versus the true boob that he is.
A dead cat bouncing.
I smell a rat somewhere in the polling. Just doesn’t add up that more people like him than the guy they were just yesterday trusting more with healthcare (Romney) and that this is due to the ruling? Makes no sense. Think I’ll table giving any poll credence for now.
Not so sure it will be close, but I agree that our side doesn’t need to get overconfident and stay home. That WOULD be disastrous, but frankly at this point I think the fact that Zero just signed us up for the “biggest tax increase in this country” is going to be an Albatross around the neck of every Dem. in this country who voted it in. May it be so.
Not buying it. Most polls show healthcare down the list in voter’s concerns.
Look for a deluge of similar polls over the next couple of weeks. Obama will be up by 5 - 10 points in all of them.
Americans have apparently decided we now love socialism.
We are going to have to live with the consequences.
I figured the conventional wisdom that Obama would be hurt if the S.Ct. upheld the law was wrong. It makes sense because upholding the law is no more likely to make us vote against Obama, but it will motivate Obama’s people to go to the polls to uphold the law.
ik havn’t scene this guy poll above 46% in months. After a long hot summer of bad rconomic news and all the talk about all the taxes in January, he is at his apex.
It will not be close. Romney by 55/45 if they can find someone else to run as a republican 60/40.
Romney outside the margin of fraud!
The theory has always been that Obama loses when the topic is jobs and the economy.
On any other topic Obama “wins” because we are distracted from jobs and the economy.
Romney is the worst candidate possible to run on the healthcare issue, as many have already noted.
Romney/our side needs to tie healthcare to jobs and the econmy in a sound-byte way that also includes stories of individual people.
Compare it to “regulation”. Ask people if they are for or against it and they are for it. But ask people if thousands of high paying pipeline jobs should be killed by regulation and they are against regulation.
Right now, tying any issue to jobs is the way to win.
Articulate philosphical and moral and economic theory is a great way to win a debate..but not to win votes.
I never thought that Clinton would be reelected.
But I believe that many conservatives will stay home rather than vote Romney into office just as Democrats are planning will happen in November.
It’s a temporary bump, like the one he got after bin-Laden’s death. It’s also the weekend, and from what I’ve been noticing from these polls, the Democrats seem to do better on weekends.
It’s the economy that’s going to sink him. Does anyone here really believe it’s going to miraculously turn around by November?
We’ve got to get every GOP friend and family member out to vote this November.
Other polls starting to pop up showing the same thing. *sigh*
read my lips...Nobamatax!
