Michigan: Obama 48% Romney 42% (but zotting trolls is as popular as ever)
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 7-24-2012 | Scott Rasmussen

Posted on 07/24/2012 12:34:50 PM PDT by raulgomez05

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 Romney’s 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.

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.

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?

"A president’s Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 48% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Fifty percent (50%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends)."

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".

“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.

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.

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.

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.

“..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.

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.

On a recent visit to a dentist, one with TV monitors in each room, I asked the hygienist if she could change the channel to something not as irritating as “The View.” She told me it was an internal feed shown on all the channels and then in a hushed tone said “I can't stand it either but this is where the women here get their news.” Jon Stewart, Jimmy Fallon, and other dopes in pop culture are other sources of this phenomenon.

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.

We'd like you to take a quick poll.

1) Are you a registered voter?

2) In which body part of yours does Obama cause a tingle?

3) Tingle this:

I always view polls with a grain of salt, but it would not surprise me at all to learn that Michigan was pro-Obama. Just look at what they've done to themselves by repeatedly voting in Democratic leadership.

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.

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.

Rasmussen has published his methodology... what methodology have you used to arrive at your conclusion?. Just so that we may compare his science to yours.

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.

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...
