Skip to comments.Michigan: Obama 48% Romney 42% (but zotting trolls is as popular as ever)

Michigan voters think the economy is in rough shape, but President Obama continues to lead Mitt Romney in that state.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Michigan Voters shows Obama with 48% support to Romneys 42%. Five percent (5%) favor some other candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 500 Likely Voters in Michigan was conducted on July 23, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Ya but where was the pol taken... Detroit?
This is sad, especially from a state hit very hard by the Obamaeconomy. However, I would bet his government takeover/bailout of GM is buying enough votes.
Since Mar 7, 2012
Relative nOOb. Polls are worthless, he just hasn’t figured that out.
Or he’s trolling.
None of these pols are credible.
I think people in Detroit are still waiting for their “Obama money” to arrive
I’m sure they left out the whole west side of the state.
The Unions and Democrat Super-Pacs are spending like crazy on Radio ads in Michigan, blaming Romney for ‘Out-sourcing” Michigan Jobs, and praising Obama for saving the Auto Industry.
The ads don’t mention the 40+ years of Jog out-FORCING Democrat policies, and what Unionism has done, though.
Do they show the trend? Where was this one in month’s past? I am not surprised to see and Obama lead, or to see Obama at 48...it is under 50%, but better than the swings states. I am a little surprised to see Romney down by that much, would have expected more like 47-44 or 48-45.
Ras is pretty credible and does anyone really believe that Michigan could ever be won by the GOP in this day and age?
Morris has suggested that Zero's approval -- in the high 40s -- represents a ceiling to his potential vote share. Also, Romeny hasn't been spending much money yet. From what I've read, he's bought more ad time during the Olympics than Zero -- of course we'll see what happens "in the fullness of time".
Inside the “Hardcore Pawn” store shown on the truTV channel.
Considering its almost been a quarter century since Michigan went for the GOP...and Romney is almost withing themargin of error...this isn’t bad news.
What is the matter with American women?
They are The Disaster’s only source of support other than delusional Blacks.
“None of these pols are credible.”
A poll’s credibility can only be determined by its results and this poll has no credibility as the results are not palatable.
That’s with the real voters. Just imagine how bad it will be with the imaginary ones tacked on election day.
Good first post, he should be commended for posting it.
Last election Michigan elected a Republican Governor and Legislature. The Disaster has an excellent chance of losing in Nov.

Michiganders are tired of bothersome phone calls, we just don’t answer the phone unless we recognize the number. Bet there are many people they did not survey.
I’d like to see how many “declines” Ras had for that poll.
I’m beginning to believe that conservatives no longer trust any pollsters and are not participating when they get called. That skews the responders to the center and left.
There may be a few responders giving erroneous info just to undermine Ras’ credibility.
Three-quarters of the state probably gets a government check.
Doesn’t pass the Taste Test, lol.
wow..and the percentage of dems polled ?
completely horrid.. I’m from that state and it is a very blue state. the unions own Detroit, and which ever way Detroit goes, will determine who wins there.
If Romney can’t win his own state...wow.. no words.
It is arriving.Welfare,SSDI,etc,etc.The problem in Detroit is that most recipients spend it on crack.
I got a polling phone call a few days ago. Told them I was not interested and hung up. I will be polled in the voting booth.
I have family in Michigan who have already put their Obama 2012 stickers on the car. It’s not primarily because of handouts to businesss or to them personally. My brother-in-law gave an indication of their thinking when he was told that many voters were disillusioned with Obama’s leadership. “There are plenty of racists left in this country,” he said. I’d say these are people who still think of Walter Cronkite as the best newscaster ever and eee his successors as cut from the same cloth.
Trend is slightly positive...Obama was at 50% in the last poll...now he is at 48%. Will be interesting to see next month’s.
“..especially from a state hit very hard by the Obamaeconomy.”
Michigan wasn’t hit very hard at all by the Obamaeconomy! In fact, my campaign slogan for 2008 was, “Vote Obama! Export Michigan’s economy to the rest of the nation!” People scoffed, but it has ended up to be true.
Michigan suffered greatly under Granholm, but the drones in this state blamed Bush....They probably still do.
I am married to a Michigander, and lived there for a number of years. And I’m telling you, it’s impossible to underestimate the vast amounts of damage to the economic and political thinking of people in that state that was done by seven decades of UAW dominance.
If Romney is at 42% he is actually doing quite well.
Still buying the lies about GM I see.
With Obama, it's less a policy agreement than an emotional bond with him.
Obama at 48% in Michigan is not good.
However, Romney is polling weak too.
Just an awful campaign so far. Hope they are holding their fire and $$$ for later.
Why do you think that? Because it's not telling you what you want it to tell you?
Disappointing. I wonder if this is the result of Obama’s relentless negative ads. Romney was higher in an earlier poll wasn’t he?
Send the dentist a letter about it. You should not be forced to suffer through that drivel. Unless it is used as a means of pre-numbing you for a Root Canal.
1) Are you a registered voter?
2) In which body part of yours does Obama cause a tingle?
3) Tingle this:
Like most "blue" states, many of the citizens of Michigan are insane enough to think that doing the same thing over and over will yield a different result.
No matter how many times & how badly you are wrong, sheeple still tune in.
Unfortunately, this did not start with The Disaster or The View but has been well evident probably from the beginning of women being able to vote. They seemed to be predisposed to Socialism.
And they have the vote due to the Republican Party.
The truth is that too many of you actually believe that this election is going to be a blowout... it will be razor thin and it is razor thin at this time.
Are we going to get to 57?
This is it exactly. The same mindset that believes Michigan is a wonderfully diverse state -- as long as all the Amish are trapped down inside 8 Mile! lol...
I know many people in Michigan willing to vote Dumbo back into office. Union members and non thinking lib types. I swear, until these type of people have everything taken away from them, they will continue to vote for the anti Christ.
A quick look at raulgomez05 posting history shows it is a democrat mole.
Sounds like these folks are simply in thrall with Obama and are going to "Stand By Their Man" no matter how he's damaged this country.
