Posted on 09/09/2012 2:56:23 PM PDT by RDangerfield
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows President Obama attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

This is the presidents biggest lead over Romney among Likely Voters since March 17. See daily tracking history. Obamas convention bounce is evident both in the head-to-head numbers with Romney and in his Job Approval ratings (see below).
The president has made significant gains among voters aged 40-64. Platinum Members can see 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. Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the former president. Democrats overwhelmingly believe Clinton and Obama have similar views on how to fix the economy, but few Republicans and unaffiliated voters share that assessment. Among all voters, 59% see Clinton as a better president, while 19% prefer Obama. Democrats are evenly divided. (see the rest at link)

Gallup showed a rise of six points for Obama from +1 Romney last Sunday to +5 Obama today.
Does this foretell an actual bounce for Obama?
Compared to Romney's convention bounced of exactly one point from his Sunday to Sunday? A lead now vanished?
“The presidents bounce began the night after Bill Clinton spoke to the convention and received rave reviews. Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the former president.”
At some point, the Clinton glow is going to fade as they realize Obama is more of the same horrible grind.
The unemployment picture is not going away.
Horse ka ka...gotta be pubbies hanging up on pollsters...yes, I do have a BS in statistics and know how surveys are formed...I don’t trust any of them, even Rasmussen. Money talks.
This indicates to me that most of the ignorant freeloaders think Slick Willie is running again with Sandy Fluke as his running mate. Free condoms for everybody!
They’ve been re-hypnotized.
Somebody just told me that they watched the DNC lie fest and felt “very reassured that the country was headed in the right direction.”
[if ‘straight to hell’ is the right direction, they have a valid point]
I have a theory, now.
People who cannot be hypnotized, like me, are immune to his incessant lies and neurolinguistic programming crap.
Those who support him are wide open to suggestion.
[and totally disconnected from reality]
Romney is going to have to kick it up a notch. Since Romney opened up on Newt in Florida, this has been his race to lose, and right now he’s losing! Romney’s potomac two step on the economy is not helping, people want to hear how he will fix things. His Vision that he “can get this done” can only go so far, “Vision without Execution is Hallucination.” ~Thomas Edison
66% have a favorable oppinion of Clinton. That means only 34% of the people in this country use their brain. That also means this country is in deep trouble.
The DNC spoke to people who want to be given things and that want the government to run their lives. They heard just what they wanted to hear. As that group grows in numbers, the tipping point toward socialism is not far off.
If you think this is bad, wait until Rasmussen releases his Generic Congressional Ballot poll and ObamaCare poll tomorrow. I suspect the Dems will be up by at least 5 points and support for repeal of 0bamamCare will underwater for the first time. I also suspect 0bama will sprint out to a 52%-42% lead. The trend is heavily moving in his favor.
We may not want to admit it, but the Democrat convention was a rousing success. Yes it’s message was anti God, anti Israel, pro leftism, pro baby killing and pro freebies, but sadly that is where a majority of Americans now stand. This is 0bama Nation......and it is an abomonation.
God will punish us severely
It makes the first debate crucial.
66% of whom?
....so I guess the new buzz word is "unaffiliated" since Odungo lost 16% of the "indies" with snake heads internal poll
So,come October 1st do we start to panic if Romney does not lead?
This will come down to pretty simple arithmatic and these polls mean nothing. All Romney has to do is hold onto the states that McAmnesty carried in 2008 and win a few that Obama carried like Florida, Ohio, Virginia and NC and Romney is the next president. That is exactly what will happen if both candidates numbers stay in the 40s through election day. Conservatives did not come out in force for McAmnesty in 2008 and he got no where near the conservative votes that Bush got in 2004. Obama is so damn bad and despised by all republicans that Romney will get more votes than McAmnesty got four years ago. Coupled that with Obummer not getting nearly as many black votes, hispanic, and Catholic votes (because he has pissed off everybody), and therefore not coming close to his vote total four years ago and folks we have a pretty convincing win for Romney. Now if Obama starts consistently polling higher than 50%, we are in a heap of damn trouble, because that would indicate that there are more braindead socialists in this country than red-blooded Americans and this grand experiment in democracy called the USA has ended after 250 years and went the way of ancient Rome.
“66% have a favorable oppinion of Clinton”
I absolutely refuse to believe this poll. He has a 66% favorable rating if the ones being asked are democrats. I know of not one single republican that would speak highly of this shyster, womanizing, serial rapist Clinton. Not a one.
Other polls the last few years, not connected to political races, show the nation becoming more pro-life. So I don't think that part's right. But the pro-baby-murder contingent is as loud as ever.
If this doesn’t get close soon, I’m gonna stop sending money to Romney. No sense throwing good money after bad.
Youth vote and I am not kidding. There are those who were 17 when Obama was elected and now are 20 and 21 years old who hated the fact that they couldn’t vote for him then and are voting for him now. The ones who he pissed off that did vote for him and are sitting this one out are simply being replaced by the new ones.
Romney/Ryan have zero attack on the ground for the youth vote. They are being completely shut out and you have schools that are filled with teachers that are filling their heads with pro-Obama garbage.
Obama is nowhere near as popular as he was in 2008, but he is going to hold Florida and likely Ohio and that spells trouble for team Romney. Romney will likely regain Virginia and North Carolina for the Republicans but not having Florida and Ohio means he is going to have to pull off a miracle win in Wisconsin and New Hampshire and Maine all 3 are in play for him.
The Clinton effect. He has to ride the coat tails of an ex-president from the 90’s to get a bounce. Pretty pathetic when you think about it.
You realize that Reagan was behind in polls until very close to election day.
I’m discouraged. This is insane. Even if Clinton was a factor, why was he a positive factor? I don’t believe it.

That too will be tough. According to realclearpolitics.com average of polls, here is the present situation in those three states you named, my favorite headache:
Maine +15.4 Obama, not in play by any definition
New Hampshire +3.5 average for Obama, last poll in August +6 Obama
Wisconsin +1.4 Obama, Ryan selection brought it up to a Romney advantage but last two polls back to Obama lead
That's why the unemployed will vote for Hussein. They figure tight fisted Romney will stop their long term unemployment benefits (which he will).
The more unemployed, the more on food stamps, the more votes for Hussein.
Youth don’t vote - not in as big numbers as they did in 2008.
FL,VA and NC went to Obama by thin margins in 2008. Romney should win those.
The fight will be in Ohio.
I guess keep writing the checks. O46R45 swing state poll, R49O45 ARG poll likely voters
No, we panic now. As I’ve been saying all along, Romney is going to get slaughtered in Nov. I don’t think some here quite appreciate the disaster that is Mitt Romney. And more frighteningly, it will be worse for Conservatism if he wins. He will kill t dead.
This is a disaster of EPIC proportions.
Romney isn’t even close to Reagan. These are VERY VERY different times. The comparison just can’t be made.
Hussein: Thank you, Mr. Romney, for helping us, giving us a blueprint of how you put in Mass. Healthcare for all.
Romney: ahhh, ahhh, ahhh...
Well, the Dims (at the Dim Convention) came right out and said that the American people belong to the government (i.e., we are subjects, not citizens). Unfortunately, at least 49% of the American people believe that.
clinton did NOT attack romney.
he avoided romney in order to hedge his bets.
clinton made obama cool his heels backstage for 58 minutes.
don’t forget obama has MSM free money in the form of in kind help.
"Those who support him are wide open to suggestion."
Well then we should start using that flaw to our advantage. Start dropping suggestions.
Maine, like Nebraska, split their electoral votes by congressional district.
There are only two congressional districts in Maine. It’s possible that Romney could win the 2nd district, which is the northern half of Maine. Plenty of libs in southern Maine, the 1st congressional district.....it’s close to Massachusetts.
The winner of each district gets one electoral vote. The statewide winner of the popular vote gets two more. In this scenario, if Obama wins southern Maine and Romney wins northern Maine, and Obama wins the statewide popular vote, Obama would get 3 electoral votes and Romney would get one.
On a ten mile stretch of two-lane road in my area (in the 2nd district) the other day, I counted 25 Romney signs and just 3 Obama signs. So you never know.
If America only knew.....
(And if somebody doesnt REALLY expose the Marxist/Muslim sob to the American people, we will lose again.)

Just a few pages from the massive file:
2012 is an important year to remember 9/11 because our younger generations are the most in danger of forgetting what really happened.
Or worse, our younger generations are susceptible to getting a politically correct view of 9/11. Many on the Left have tried to turn 9/11 into a day of national service or a celebration of tolerance, instead of remembering that radical jihad attacked this nation because of our western values.
Watch this moving tribute to the heroes of 9/11

and is now in the Smithsonian.
Well I hope you relizes that polls after a convention bounce are not accurate predictors of the final victor at a minimum. We have to fight to throw Obama out no matter what. If a mere poll is enough to embrace defeat. We deserve Obama.
WHY has that Youtube video been flagged as “potentially offensive or inappropriate”???
Hey, people, come in off the ledge - as someone on another thread advised. Remember that the lamestream media hyped this convention to the hilt, acting like it was a reincarnation of the Messiah’s 2008 convention, when clearly it was not. So, I don’t think these polls reflect anything more than the hype of Bill Clinton’s nominating speech.
The lamestream media wins elections for the Communist Democrat Party even when public sentiment is nowhere near enough to elect a dangerous man like Barack Hussein Obama. Polls show only 20 percent, while 41 percent are conservatives. This, too, shall pass. Romney needs to get his ass in gear and go on the attack.
I keep hoping that the debate that Obama has with Romney will help Romney a lot, the problem is, all of the moderators of the debate are Obama lovers. Even if Romney wins the debate the media will say that Obama won and the drones sitting at home who cannot think for themselves will say “I guess Obama did win that debate” so its stacked against Romney no matter what.
I do think these polls are BS, I had read last week Romney leading by 12 with Independent voters, up 10 with whites, and closing the game with women. Also saw polls which showed that the majority of Americans believe that we are NOT better off than we were 4 years ago but Im supposed to believe that somehow with ALL of that Obama is leading..NO WAY!! Either people are deliberately lying to these pollsters due to fear(Since these pollsters have their name and address) or something else is going on. How can someone say that the economy sucks, the job market sucks, we are worse off than 4 years ago but yeah “I’ll still vote for Obama” there is NO WAY that is even possible
I disagree, it will be far worse for conservatism if Romney loses. If Romney loses I predict the GOP 2016 candidate will be to the left of Romney, even if it Palin. Why?
Obamacare will by solidified as part of the American fabric by 2016. In fact I fully expect the dem candidate in 2016 wil run on repealing and replacing obamacare.....with single payer
Amnesty will happen forcing the GOP to pander to 12 million Hispanic voters.
The SCOTUS will hand down a Roe type ruling on gay marriage. Gay marriage will have well over 50% support by 2016 if this happens. The GOP will remove language from their platform defining marriage as one man one woman.
If Obama wins its game over. The GOP, even if it’s Palin, Walker or whomever will not only be left of Romney 2012, tthey’ll be to the left of gore 2000.
Conservatives are deeply concerned and rightly so. The Dems got a 7-9 point swing from their convention despite the fact it was unabashed leftism on display. It’s is very disheartening to think what that means about our fellow Americans. It means the majority of Americans want to throw away what has worked for the past 230 years and replace it with socialism and tyranny.
Maybe Romney bounces back. But this is in essence what the so called permanent democratic majority would look like. A party impervious to recessions or scandal. A party that is not rebuked for its blatant anti American Exceptionalism.
You are the one having the meltdown, not I.
When the numbers go back to where they were then you can go back to not falling to pieces.
Our “suggestions” never include free food/gas/rent/medical care, fluffy pink clouds, flying purple unicorns, sparkly rainbows or idiotic utopian fantasies.
Reality is anathema to them.
Hyperbole, and strawman arguments...say are you a liberal?
I’m thinking street signs, myself...LOL
