These are the results when registered voters are asked: "Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party's candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party's candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?"

Gallup is registered. But at this point, in this economy, Obama should be down 20 in any poll - adults, registered or likely.

Registered voters - and from Gallup, being sued by the Obama DOJ so I’m sure their polling results are completely unbiased and accurate. /sarc.

Expected bounce.

But one should recognize that the bounce after a candidates convention is not an accurate predictor of the final victor.

It’s going to be very, very close. Obama still can’t garner 50% of the vote, even among registered voters and with his convention bounce.

Not surprising. The DNC was masterful and aggressive compared to the weak, neutered, Obama-is-a-nice-guy-whose-policies-are-bad RNC. And Obama got a BIG assist from the media, who purposely distracted from the RNC with Issac, gave Obama a pass after Romney beat him to Louisiana, and refused to even cover the ugly God/Jerusalem chaos at the DNC.

These are the results when registered voters are asked: "Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party's candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party's candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?" Those who are undecided are further asked if they lean more toward Obama or Romney and their leanings are incorporated into the results. Each seven-day rolling average is based on telephone interviews with approximately 3,050 registered voters; Margin of error is ±2 percentage points.

As to the results, I have to echo the "ugh" above. How that convention could register a bounce, I dunno. I hope Romney Ryan has a big-gun strategy and is willing to use it.

I doubt it. Rasmussen has Obama up 2 with likely voters and so this would jive as registered normally give Ds 2-3 point cushion.

Rasmussen O 46 R 44

Reuters O 46 R 44

All have Romney at essentially 44. It is absolutely horrible at this point against this disaster of an incumbent.

I just refuse to believe that the American people have decided that they want to live under Communism. I just refuse to believe it. Here you have a HORRIBLE jobs report(If this were President Bush the Dems would have smeared him left and right for it meanwhile Obama gets a pass) and you have Dem delegates BOOING God and Israel and Obama isn’t down 20?? I just dont get it..are people seriously THAT stupid! As long as Romney wins the electoral college I dont care what the national poll says. It could be that Romney wins the delegate count and Obama wins the popular vote

An Axelrod-inspired ‘thumb on the scale’ - registered (not likely) voters, threats from the Obama campaign (from Axel-douche himself), and probably over-sampling of Dems. NO ONE should be surprised about this highly-manipulated piece of effluence that some call gospel-quality polling. PUKE!

I think the ABR crowd might want to read the poll. A poll of adults is not a serious poll. This isn’t even a registered voter poll.

This poll has more to do with DOJ suing Gallup then any thing else.

If Communism is what people want, I dont know what more to say. Its just really depressing, America is about FREEDOM, but apparently many just want FREE STUFF. I think Gallop Poll is full of crap since they are being sued by the DOJ, but even Rasmussen has Obama up 2, I just dont get it. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine this country going downhill like this. I still have hope that Romney wins the delegate count that is all that matters

I can’t believe everyone is in panic mode. This is a typical convention bounce and was absolutely predictable. The Jersey Shore watchers and the rest of the morons always give a bump up to the party that had the most recent convention. Romney got a bounce week before last. Within a week, Obumbler will be back down again to his normal 42-46 %

I just refuse to believe it. Here you have a HORRIBLE jobs report

Yes, but how did Brian/Scott/Dianne nightly news report it? Did they emphasize the "lower" rate of 8.1% and quote a White House source that we've had 30 straight months of job growth? Or did they cover the REAL unemployment rate?

you have Dem delegates BOOING God and Israel and Obama isn’t down 20?

But did the nightly newsers even report this? It wasn't mentioned at all in my local papers.

Americans lead busy lives, and many, many women are dopey and worship celebrities. Michelle and her husband have star power to them. Most sheeple are not aware of the hard issues, and Romney and Rove aren't exposing the EVILS of Obama at all, just his policy failings. They are running out of time and the clock favors Obama. Right now I expect him to prevail.

In this economy, the polls should not be this close. Romney is not buying air time here in North Florida, It’s not like there isn’t enough material to use. This is a must win State for R2, I am growing concerned.

“are people seriously THAT stupid?”

Yes. Obemba already has the lib, socialist, communist, black, Hispanic, food stamp leeches, the 50% of American citizens on the gov’t dole, female and gay votes.

It’s definitely not a shoe-in for Romney. Anyone who thinks it is...is delusional.

posted this twice previously, in the AP/Rueters & Ras poll threads....

i heard Ras on Kudlow this morning....basically his message was this is Romney’s election to lose yet Romney has not done enough to win the election....

Ras said no one (electorate) believes obama has any idea or ability how to improve the economy yet at the same time Romney has blown it to date by not giving enough detail on his plan to improve the economy or reduce the deficit (i agree with the latter)...

Ras also said the rats have seen a massive short term bounce in voter enthusiasm....he credits clinton’s speech for it and said that while the rats think obama and clinton compare favorably when it comes to the economy and economic growth, Republicans disagree and more importantly, unaffiliated voters think its a joke...

bottom line- Romney needs to show more detail and according to Ras, his campaign executives told him they plan on doing exactly that this month....

Obama’s getting a pass because yesterday did you see or hear ONE speech or comment from Romney or Ryan slamming the jobs report? The media would HAVE to cover that. So did they go on the attack about it? Idk

Let me tell you so many people in this country like their hand outs and the emotional nonsense they get from voting for a black man as POTUS.

There are 23+ million people unemployed out there(I am one of them) I doubt every single one of them are waiting in their mamma’s basements waiting for their welfare check to come. Many of them(Myself included) want to work, but can’t find work because Obama’s policies have destroyed the job market. Twitter is what most people get their news from(Especially those on the go) and the video of the Delegates booing God and Israel was everywhere, even though the Obama media ignored it it was still shown online, people did see it, and Fox News did show the video a few times.
God help us all if Obama wins..mind as well swim to Cuba, which will even look more Capitalist than what America will look like under 4 more years of Obama

I agree. With the intensely wretched state of the economy, Obama’s approval ratings shouldn’t be anywhere close to where it now is, regardless of weighted or biased polling. Pretty indicative of how the country has rapidly been devolving in the past few years, with the takers overwhelming the makers. America might indeed be entering the twilight of its existence, if this proves out. The economic, cultural and moral decay takes its toll.

An electorate that puts the likes of Clinton into office twice, a Kenyan Indonesian communist at least once , gave the lunatic Al Gore the popular vote in 2000, and may elect a Mormon Bishop degenerate sociopath liar and coward is an electorate that is DEMENTED.

The collapse of this Republic is inevitable.

"Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death." James Madison

Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. John Adams: letter to John Taylor, April 15, 1814

Yea but Romney is down in Rasmussen and Reuters as well. People can downplay Gallup because it’s ADULTS not even RV but the other two? Sounds like Obama got a bounce and after that horrible job report that was reported as such by most of the media? Wow..people must be in full idiot mode in this country.

Poll respondents aren’t telling the truth. ESPECIALLY the slice of former 0bama voters referenced in the article.

The vote in November will show the Bradly effect showing up large - larger than even the proponents of this effect expect.

If Romney thinks he can just let the bad economic news lift him to a win WITHOUT laying out how actual bad the numbers are for this country and offering SOME alternative, his ass is TOAST. Negative ads definitely help.

I wouldnt be surprised if Romney won the delegate count and Obama won the popular vote. Even though Obama is a massive prick he is still popular with the celebrities and the young people who want whatever they can get their hands on for free. Romney HAS to go out and explain these job numbers, all people are seeing is 8.1 percent unemployment, they think that number is a good thing, Romney and Ryan have to go on TV and say over and over again the ONLY reason why the number went down is because people quit looking for work. The REAL unemployment number is close to 12 percent
