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?"

Another one of those funny Gallup polls. LOL! They are working their asses off trying to get their messiah reelected.
I think even Drudge is getting tired of the Romney team incompetence. He always hides bad polls for Romney. Yet today he has the Gallup poll as headline... That is telling.
Rasmussen O 46 R 44
Gallup O 49 R 45
Reuters O 46 R 44
All have Romney at essentially 44. It is absolutely horrible at this point against this disaster of an incumbent.
ITA. Convention or not. People really wanna give this man another four years after another HORRIBLE job report yesterday and gas soaring again last week!!!
Really, you dumb mofos? Really?
I am petrified this might be right.
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
No Gallup normally does Registered, for this one it did adults
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 %
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 isnt 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.
WHY ARE YOU SO SHOCKED?? We all knew the mediaWHORES and pollsters were going to raise the sea levels for this VOMIT MAN FROM HELL! DON’T BE SHOCKED BE ANGRY and fight for this country like if your life depended on it!! FIGHT!! Just a side note...UHHHHH Gallup is being sued by DOJ and AX...ENUFF said!
The debates will determine the election. That and any October surprises the rats concoct.
“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 Romneys 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 clintons 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 guess I should already know this, but I don't. What's the story behind the Obama DOJ threatening to sue Gallup? What are they using as justification/what are they claiming as the basis for this threat?
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.
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
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.:Thomas Jefferson
