Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll (Romney 47%, Obama 44%)
rasmussenreports.com ^ | July 03, 2012 | staff

Posted on 07/03/2012 3:51:54 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns 44%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Last week, the president received an immediate bounce following the Supreme Court ruling on his health care law. On the night of the ruling, the single night poll results were by far the best recorded for Obama in many months. Over the past few days, the numbers have returned to where they’ve been for most of the past month—Romney up slightly among likely voters in a very close race.

But...but...the LA Times just announced that Obama has enjoyed a six day sustained lead over Romney...of course their poll is registered voters and not likely voters.

I believe that most of the undecided will break Romney’s way and so the likely poll indicates more realistically that the lead is really more like 55% to 45%.

Remove both the “Bradly Effect” (self-laorthing white liberals who only tell the truth not when they are polled but when they vote) and the current fad of punking the Leftist MSM pollsters in general and we have both a Mitt and GOP landslide.

Cool...now if only we could remove the loser RINO leadership.

Possibly the only positive in the Roberts ruling is that it’ll flush Obama’s numbers even farther down the crapper, until he’s so difficult to see that, come November, it’ll take the Hubble Space Telescope to find his vote numbers.

Still, of course, every Black in the country will vote for him nevertheless, out of pure racism; plus, every illegal who can slide his/her way into a polling booth will pull the lever for him, too.

And, of course, the homosexuals.

Still, if I were a betting man, I’d have to wager Obama will do worse in November even than Jimmy Carter after his first term.

Or is that simply wishful thinking?

A decent, small government conservative, running for ‘12 POTUS as the final GOP pick, would be doing much better, instead of a RINO Republican, who is pretending to be a conservative.

That's not gonna happen and it doesn't *need* to happen.A Florida 2000 type of result,coupled with taking the Senate,is good enough.

If you look at the realclearpolitics averages for many swing states you see a great discrepancy in polls of LV vs. RVs.

Getting Romney in is only half the battle, the other half will be making sure he makes good on his promises. I don’t trust him in that regard one bit. Worse though, is I don’t trust the spineless milquetoasts we have as pubbie leaders, they are as weak as Roberts and will NOT want to follow through on repeal. This is already glaringly evident in McConnell’s recent white flag remarks.

The only way to get this done is for the Tea Party to vigorously bully the wimps so that they fear the Tea Party more than the leftists.

I think President Reagan time travelled and saw what was to come.
He saw Obama would do ..and maybe Romney..?

Or,maybe he knew these loser have always been around and the only way to deal with them is to STOP them from weaselling their way into positions of power.

I agree that Romney’s actual lead is larger. If Rasmussen ever puts him at 51% it’s over. Of course, 0bama will never go below 43%, as that’s the number in the cart these days.

Wishful thinking. Romney generates no enthusiasm. And Obama has the power of incumbency, unions, gubmint workers, all those on the gubmint dole, and the media. Plus porkulus and fraud.

If we’re lucky, it will be close. Four more years is a distinct possibility.

I’m going to guess the possibility that Mitt Romney picks another RINO for his VP choice, and then asks conservative voters questions along the lines of, “What are you going to do about it? Vote for Barack Obama, instead?” Mitt Romney would do such things, since Mitt is living in a “leftist Republican world”, instead of living in a small government conservative world. There’s going to be way too much leftist politics for the next four years with, either, Mitt Romney, for up to, possibly, eight years, or with another four years of Barack Obama! The ‘12 POTUS race is a lose-lose situation for all of U.S. conservatism.

We are perpetual losers. Played by Obama and the communists, played by the demonrats, played by the SCOTUS and played by the GOPE. I am sick of it. I am sick of playing by their rules. When is enough enough?

Just remember McCain/Palin were ahead in 200

The MSM will not let Obama lose --200 was bad but their BS will be much worse this time

We’ve been losing our republic for over 40 years. Like Newt said: “Romney is a good manager....he will manage the decline”. The left is a criminal enterprise along with much of the republican party at this point. I don’t know how you wake up enough people to the danger we are in. Nothing has seemed to work.

From the article: “The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. “

A tie sure isn’t going to get Obama out of the White House.

Probably not good for an incumbent to be at 44%

Big thing is Obama has trouble ever getting much above 45%, even after his hispanic givaway and Obamatax victory - not a good sign only four months before the election....

A solid Republican candidate would be twenty points up. If the two losers Romney and Obama are the contenders come November, the election will be very close with many voters not voting the top of the ballot at all.

I don’t think all blacks will vote for Obama. There have now been three polls — in North Carolina, South Carolina, and most recenlty, Georgia, that found that 21 to 23 percent of blacks plan to vote for Romney and not Obama. Blacks have suffered more than anyone in this downturn, except maybe young people in general. The President’s endorsement of gay marriage opened a lot of eyes among sociall conservative blacks.

“A solid Republican candidate would be twenty points up.”

Not a single candidate running no matter who would be up 20 pts. Not a sinlge poll ever had a Republican over Obama by more than mid single digits, and Romney polled the best of them this year. 47-44% lead for Romney is a solid result.

The party of moochers, govt lackeys and multi-culti liberals has a base in the low 40s. They will never do worse than 42-44% and we will never do better than 10pts higher. And we will be LUCKY to get that.

I expect a close race.

But if Romney wins 54%-46%, which is possible with these poll numbers, it would be huge win and we’d get the Senate too.

If Florida 2000 happens in 2012, the election will be stolen, and you know it. We do have a chance of winning big, by playing upon the emotions of some of the Obama dolts and reminding them of the millions more who are suffering now under the Marxist. There should not be one bullet left in the GOP’s chamber on November 6th. Bob

I think you’re right; I hope you’re right.

The nation simply cannot survive another four years of this *ssclown in the White House in anything even faintly resembling a recognizable form.

I just hope that sufficient numbers of Americans can tear themselves away from their television sets long enough to understand that.

For better or worse, America tends to be a fairly insulated nation; fortunately (or UNfortunately) the economy is in such a mess that Americans are turning away from Obummer in droves.

The Communist Revolution in compressed time.

Still, there is an enormous number of people whose only interest in life is to hold their hands out to the government, and wait for Uncle Sugar to stuff in bills stolen from the earnings and savings of others.

And Obama’s nothing if not a practiced and accomplished thief.

I’m holding my breath and waiting for November.

There can be no question that the future of America is at stake.

Something terribly wrong here. All the anti-Romney-bot brainiacs are assuring us that Romney is running a horrible campaign and will be crushed by the Most Puissant Usurper.

Almost as if they would be thrilled to see Romney and America defeated just so they could feel smart for once in their blighted lives. Almost.

Just think of what it could be if we had true objective media? The drive-by uber-lib media we have automatically gives any democRAT candidate a 10 point advantage.
