Skip to comments.Rasmussen: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Obama 46% Romney 44%
Posted on 09/08/2012 8:39:15 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows President Obama attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 44% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided
The president is enjoying a convention bounce that has been evident in the last two nights of tracking data. He led by two just before the Republican convention, so he has already erased the modest bounce Romney received from his partys celebration in Tampa. Perhaps more significantly, Democratic interest in the campaign has soared. For the first time, those in the presidents party are following the campaign as closely as GOP voters. Interest in a campaign is typically considered a good indicator of turnout. Platinum Members can monitor enthusiasm, demographic breakdowns and additional information from the tracking poll on a daily basis.
The presidents bounce began the night after Bill Clinton spoke to the convention and received rave reviews.

Frankly, in the next couple of days I think it will move a bit more towards Obama, until the Obama-Opium wears off.
Post 40 great points. The entire Dem convention was to fire up the rabid base, hence the uncertainty to include God. Meanwhile the GOP convention assumed the base was on board and strove for independents with the Eastwood appearance. That tells me everything I need to know about who is the front runner in this race
Females cried, America died.
i disagree....you don’t become as successful in business the way Romney has by playing prevent D...McLame had a lot to lose as he had to go back to the senate if/when he lost- Romney doesn’t need that...
and while i would prefer Romney had already laid it out on the line, considering the duplicitous media and the rats convention- waiting until September could be a good strategy for Romney if he comes out guns blazing with his proposals...
Question: if the MOE is 3% does that include the numbers on “undecided” and “other” as well?
If Rasmussen says the undecided is 6%, does that actually range from 9% to 3%?
don’t forget Catholics, white males and independents who voted for him in numbers unusual to their past voting record- and he’s lost all three...
there are so many external factors polling/trending against obama i am in complete agreement with you...
I’m 100% certain that a leftist will win the race for ‘12 POTUS.
good points... I do wonder about Zero being out of cash. I would think he would find someway to get the money he needs and worry about the consequences later...
besides, if he did something questionable regarding “finding” more money for advertisements, the press will later simple say: “nothing too see here folks, move on...non story”..
No doubt. If this is the sum total of 0bama’s convention bounce I’d be very worried if I was them.
“Bill Clinton’s speech is likely a factor. Women are still fascinated by Clinton. A commentator on CNN, the night of Clinton’s speech, who said on air he got a Tweet from a woman who said I want to sleep with him and vote for him.
What’s with these sluts? He’s an old man with a bad heart.
You can disagree with me but this “prevent strategy” is exactly what Romney aides have told reporters behind the scene in the past - there were articles posted about that months ago here on FR. Romney may now realize that he needs to be more specific but it might be too late....we shall see
Even those exit polls were wrong. They gave Kerry the plus figures. Then Hillary comes out with that get rid of the electoral college stuff meaning the exit polls should have decided the election.
This too shall pass.
i don’t know if he’s out of cash but i know this; 4 years ago every time i went to my verizon.net server to get my mail i was bombarded with obama ads....i’ve not seen one in months...
ever the ads i would see at Yahoo earlier in the year have seemed to fall off the map....
There is nothing at all in ny.
Probably true....But the key difference is between being a RINO leftist and a marxist/communist/fascist leftist.
So the real issue is do we vote for a Rino or a marxst/commie/nazis? (A moslem marxist/commie/nazis at that!)
The problem with the Rasmussen composite measure of battleground states is that it tells you very little about the individual state battles. Romney need not win all of those states, just a sample of key states including FL, OH, MO, NH, VA, NC, MI, IA, PA, CO, NV and WI. If he wins 6-7 of those key states he could still lose a composite measure of all 11 or 12 battlegrounds states. For example, he may lose PA by 3 points, NV by 5 points and MI by 4 points, which offsets multiple very close wins in the other states. Good news: last I checked (2 days ago), Romney was tied or ahead in 7 of the 11 battleground states in the Rasmussen polling, and ties likely go to Romney based on the historical preferences of the “undecided”. Further, Obama hits 50% in only the poll for NV.
This is nearing Obama’s high water mark, wait until the jobs numbers hit polling. I think Obama gets no more than 47% to 48% in the election.
Its called Democracy. Don’t Sweat It. Romney will win.
Interesting swing, it doesn’t take much to make Democrat spirits soar, but then the weekend ends on Monday, and poll numbers get back to normal. The Democrat freak show will fade as gas prices go higher, and the economy continues to fail. That, and the debates are yet to come. I’m still predicting a very comfortable Romney win.
