Posted on 08/03/2012 7:58:16 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 43%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided...
Currently, 22% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -23 (see trends). This is the presidents lowest Approval Index rating of 2012.

In Rasmussen (THE most accurate poll in 2008 and 2010, by the way), over the last 10 days Mitt has been up +5 twice, +3 several times, +4 today . . . . He is averaging at least +3. And yes, Obama dropped today . . . he can never get above 45% and today is at 43%.
I am doing the Happy Dance.
Maybe I should be doing the “Chicken Dance”? LOL!
I just hope that Rasmussen is as accurate this election cycle as he has been in the past. He nailed the 2008 election. Aside from Gallup, Ras appears to be an outlier when compared to Pew, Quinn, Fox, CBS/WSJ/NBC ect. Maybe Im just putting too much into Ras only to be crushed this November? The RAT base sat out the 2010 election cycle but I fear that they will flood the precincts to protect their benes this time around. The polling companies have a huge challenge trying to predict turnout. The RATS had a +7 advantage in 2008. Im not so sure that the Republican party has done a damn thing to motivate turnout. It really will boil done to the Tea Party intensity. Sorry for the rant.
Sarcasm aside, the recent increase in bogus pools with democrats being out-sampled by +8, +10 and higher to Repubs has become - I think- intentional. (Article in WSJ said that the range of people actually voting was at its historic high for Democrats at +7 in 2008 over Repubs with the Repubs best year at even. That gives a pretty good barometer of what makes sense. Maybe +2 or +4 for The One this time?)
I'm with Rush on this - the fear is really setting in and whatever they can do to make it look competitive will be done - even with bogus poll results.
Every time I hear Gallup, or CBS or even WSJ, I'm suspect. Fortunately, there are people a lot smarter than me immediately getting into the weeds regarding the sampling and highlighting the flaws.
It's a lot better for the Repubs than it seems. 8.3% isn't going to help the One much either. Did they even report that at ABC/NBC/CBS?
How can this be? The PU poll had BO at 110% vs -10% for Romney.....or something like that!
To paraphrase LBJ: “Somebody’s full of s**t and it ain’t Rasmussen!”
We need him to stay in 'til November.
See tag line.
The GOP does not have to do much to motivate turnout. The Disaster provides all the motivation necessary and he is doing a great job.
However, the fact that Romney is slamming everything back in the Disaster’s face makes this campaign completely unlike McCain’s.
Meanwhile The Disaster goes from one blunder after the other.
One recent poll showed he only has a 51% approval rate in Illinois and that will slip by November. This turkey is DONE.
Yep... oversampling Dems by +1500
Rasmussen is a RACIST!!!! /s
Re: Tea Party intensity.
Don't worry. Be happy.
It will be interesting to see if Obama can win over Charlotte and Mecklenburg County with his little coronation; there are a lot of liberals there.
The bottom is about to fall out for Obama. He knows it, and is spending like crazy to try and staunch it.

Frankly I don't know what to believe having listened to Karl Rove two days ago say that in the battleground states Obama is holding his own and is slightly ahead. When we begin seeing those polls change than we can rest a bit easier but right now it's a nail biter. We will see an uptick after our Convention but then team Obama and Bill Clinton may also see a slight bump as they're real pros at fooling the masses. The election couldn't come soon enough for me.

I’ve noticed that. Amazingly he doesn’t seem too worried, does he?
