The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 45% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 44% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.
Today is the first time Romney has held the advantage in a week. See daily tracking history. Forty-four percent (44%) of voters now see Obama as Very Liberal, and 30% see Romney as Very Conservative.

And then over the weekend O will go back up. Daily tracking polls are useless noise. They bounce all over the place.
You have GOT to be kidding me.
Woa this is not a very good bounce. :/
I just don’t get how Obama has so much support. Who are these idiots???
What is the number generated by some talking heads? 47% of the people get some sort of a government check?
Bounced like a bag of wet cement.
I believe Rass is three day average tracking. If Bambi is back up come Monday, then there was zero bounce for Romney.
They’re the same damn idiot who are guilty white middle class who don’t wanna have the first black president be a failure and not get a second term. The “Lets give him a second chance and more time to make things better” morons.
It takes a few days in a daily tracking poll before that factors in.
Actually, they are much more steady than the polls the networks commission monthly. The daily tracking polls use numbers over multiple days (3,5 or 7 usually) to smooth out the results.
What I think we are going to see is there is no bounce. And I doubt Obama will get one either. The country is very divided. A very simplistic way of looking at it is that half the people want more freebies, the other half would rather not pay for those people to have more freebies. There just aren't that many truly independent voters these days.
I suspect they are the dead and fake people who will be used fraudulently by democrats to steal the election.
I truly hope we don’t fall into a Kerry/Bush issue this fall.
Our tepid support of Mitt (as with Kerry was the anybody but Bush candidate) might cause Obama to slip through.
I remember hearing libs ask how it was possible because ‘everyone I know hates Bush!’ Well, apparently there was more support (even silently) than you realized.
WE have to make the case. WE know what a sleazeball he is, WE have to convince people that the problems ARE HIM. Not Bush, not global markets, etc... The gas has been double for nearly 2 years, has the media made a squawk? They were gauging their eyes out with Bush for just a few months!
Don’t take for granted that your neighbor who barely pays attention to the world will go vote for Mitt, while the goofball libs panic to keep that ,woman hating/killing, gonna take my abortion away, Mitt Romney out of office.
guilty white middle class
Quoting from the article:
“nearly all of the interviews were conducted before Mitt Romneys speech to the Republican National Convention last night.”
Only Ryans speech would be factoring into todays Rass’s numbers, not Romneys.
About half the country pays no income taxes and a big chunk of that number want more freebies. Additionally, a lot of people still WANT to like Obama. Hussein has a huge advantage because so many people are emotionally invested in him. You can get away with bloody murder for quite awhile when people WANT to like you so much they put aside all your failures.
That's what I thought, too. It's a little early to come up with an accurate account.
On top of that, I think most people have already made up their minds anyway. Either they want a free country and a free market, or they want the government dictating our production and consumption (like obomacare, for example).
