Skip to comments.CNN Poll: Obama holds 7-point lead over Romney (Mega-Barf)
Posted on 08/09/2012 1:18:08 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney's unfavorable rating is up, most Americans think the Republican presidential challenger favors the rich, and the public no longer believes that the economy will get better if Romney is elected, according to a new national poll.
But a CNN/ORC International survey released Thursday also indicates that Romney's supporters are increasingly getting behind the presumptive GOP nominee.
It all adds up to a seven point advantage for President Barack Obama over the former Massachusetts governor, with 52% of registered voters questioned in the survey saying that they'd vote to re-elect the president and 45% backing Romney.
"Among independent voters, the poll indicates President Obama has a 53%-42% lead," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. "The president holds a nine point advantage among women voters and a smaller six point edge among men."

How’s that liberal Republican working out for ya now GOPe???? This was your wish....now deal with it.
“Mitt Romney’s unfavorable rating is up...”
Well of course they are .. HE MURDERS OLD LADIES!
I call bullsnot on this poll. There is no way that he has a 6 point lead with men. Unless, of course, this survey was done in cities only.
Does anyone remember the polls showing Carter ahead of Reagan a few Weeks before the election? Sure hope it is the same in this election. Also wish it was someone besides Romney.
Has anyone seen the internals? Is this another D+12 poll...
CNN is not a credible source.
They are an arm of the DNC, there is no way they are credible about politics.
Or anything else for that matter.
is this the first time our leader has been over 52%? This makes me sick gag
The only thing good about the mainstream media and their BS is that it has a tendency to make the opposition so mad that they come together to beat the idiots.
The polls are all over the place.
After the recent burtations from the Romney camp supporting gays in the Boy Scouts and the desirability of socialized medicine, I wonder whether there are seven points of difference in governing philosophy.
I decided to hold my nose and support Mitt for these reasons;
He’s not a lawyer.
He’s not a Muslim.
He’s not a communist.
I’m beginning to wonder about that third thing.
No. You deal with it.
Most likely those polled were in Boston or areas like that.
One thing I have to grudgingly give to the dems... they are masters at perpetuating lies about their opponents. Good or evil, or up or down, the pick the narrative and own it. They're just tougher in the trenches in the political world.
To put the poll’s inaccuracy in perspective, 50% say they approve of Obama’s job performance, outpacing long running Gallup and Rasmussen daily polls.
And, 30% of respondents viewed Dingy Harry favorably....although he polls 22% favorable in other polls.
Another question asked if we would be better off with Rats of Republicans controlling congress...rats won 45% to 39%.
Question 7 is a class warfare question about whether or not the candidate ‘favors’ the rich or poor...nice touch.
Since the only criteria for the poll seems to be the ability to fog a mirror (not registered voters), I cannot find the sampling....when oversampling 18 points doesn’t work, just sample people who don’t vote!
“The CNN poll was conducted by ORC International Tuesday and Wednesday (August 7-8), with 1,010 adults nationwide, including 911 registered voters, questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.”
No. You deal with it.
Why should I? If anyone is going to deal with it, it is going to be his fans or the ones that wanted him in the first place.
This poll is a minimum of +6 dems.
Marc Litvinoff runs ORC international... look him up and the companies that he has been involved with since 1990.
actually the ones drinking the kool aid are the Romney lovers who slobber all over themselves. I for one make up my own mind. I don’t go along with the masses which is why I am a conservative. It is funny how you liberals are freaking out. I am laughing my butt off knowing I had NOTHING to do with this mess. God we should have Newt, Santorum, Bachmann, sheesh anyone other than the worst Repubublican on Earth.
Now you’re so dumb you believe CNN polls?
When was the last time cnn had a poll showing the republican ahead?

I don’t know which is more uproariously pathetic: the poll or the fact that you apparently believe it! :)
Next time find someone who can win. Santorum/Bachman wasn't going anywhere, even in the Republican party.
I know this is just anecdotal, but I have come across at least 30 aquaintances that say they voted for Obama but will not this time. I know of NO ONE who is going the other way.
These polls are screwy.
This poll is unmitigated bull squat. It’s designed to depress republicans, to drive results...not to reflect reality.
someone needs to take away their Detroit phone book.
that photo of the women just fawning all over the guy is just sickening. truly sickening.
and frightening...I fear for this country.
If this country reelects Obama, then it is deserving of every bit of mockery and derision it has coming.
ah the over sample and report and when the election comes and the illegal vtes are counted the polls will show obama was going to win anyway.
Lets face it the media need calling out as well as the homostapo right now by talk radio, tv heads and the flaming elitist idiotic, lets play fair they called me a name but we’ll be nice GOP
Hmmmmm, who to believe? Rasmussen, Gallup, or CNN/3 kids with cell phones who barely squeaked by undergrad statistics?
Because they don’t show a breakdown of dems/reps/independs you can throw this poll in the garbage.
From the report, it appears to be “419 GOP/GOP leaning independants”
The best case would be +13 D; the worse case would +17 D. This is very skewed.
This poll is BS..Rasmussen already has a poll out today showing Romney with a 4 point lead over Obama..Obama will always have the media in his corner. They will do anything to make sure their Communist buddy is re-elected
Why don’t you hold your breath and stomp your feet? That would be more intelligent than making your stupid comments.
Stupid comments? Stupid comments would be something that I would say if I was not serious. Obviously you love Romney too. Kiss his feet when you see him.
Guess that’s what happens after an ad blitz and your spokesperson’s only response is “Romneycare!”
We’re doomed. Romney is running just like McCain.
Allright Dhimmocrats lie as usual BUT this is not an excuse for Republicans !
If Republicans only told the very truth about the dhimmycrats they would win most of the time !
and the military absentee ballots in FL are thrown in the trash
Were doomed. Romney is running just like McCain.
People with zero principles really have nothing to say. He can’t really complain about gay marriage, abortion, Obamacare since he has the same beliefs as Obama. I guess he could talk up the Salt Lake Olympics. Anyway, it is amazing how many people complain about the patriots who tell the truth about Romney. Very telling and why America is in the toilet.
Good Grief! You are stupider than I thought. It isn’t obvious at all that I love Romney. Romney was my last choice among the contenders. But nothing is more obvious than that he is going to be the nominee.
Since it comes down to a contest between Romney and Obama, I will support Romney. Anyone that doesn’t is helping Obama. Only a moron can’t see that.
Basically true so far, but Obama has a 4 year record of fail attached to him now.
I know it's tough to swim upstream against a tsunami of MSM support, but I don't see Baraq as a lock by any means.
One example is here in Indiana where Obama pulled out a thin margin in 08 and will likely lose by 10 points this year.
