Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (0 46 R 45)
Rassmussen ^ | 09-12-2012 | Scott Rassmussen

Posted on 09/12/2012 9:01:23 AM PDT by MNJohnnie

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows President Obama attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

The president received a modest convention bounce, but that's now gone. On the day the conventions began, Obama was up by two points. Now the numbers are essentially back to that starting point with the president leading by a point. See daily tracking history.

When “leaners” are included, it’s Romney 48% and Obama 47%. Leaners are those who initially indicate no preference for either candidate but express a preference for one of them in a follow-up question.

So let this be a lesson to both the ABR posters and the Romney supporters. Daily tracking polls wander all over the place. Crowing about them when they say what you want, or panicking when they say what you don't want is foolish.

It is still discouraging to think that 46% of American voters are idiots, looters and grifters.

Amen. It’s Romney’s to win (or lose) depending on how much he shows he really wants it.

He needs to get much more aggressive in his rhetoric and his tactics, IMO. He also needs to spell out his plan to the American public in clear and concise terms.

The debates could be absolutely critical. I hope he’s ready.

I suspect we are seeing a repeat of 1980. I think a lot of the Obama support is very very soft.

A whole lot of Democrats said they were for Carter then voted for Reagan.

In a lot of places the Democrat party is a religion. You toe the party line no matter how much you disagree with what is going on. So they will mouth all the party loyalty slogans until they get in the privacy of the voting booth. These are the Democrats that 0bama scorned as “clinging to their God and their Guns” in 2008.

In 2008 0bama was a blank slate who these voters could write anything they wanted on. Now he is a known quantity.

Going to be interesting to see if they show up on election day for O. All the polling is assuming, like they did in 1980, that these Democrats are going to show up and vote Democrat in Nov.

They call it a bounce for a reason. Something to do with a rubber ball, a sidewalk and gravity.

Exactly..Country is just about lost...We’re coming to a parting of the ways, b/c we cant go on when half the country supports socialism/atheism...

But we do need to win this election stave it off for 4yrs, and hopefully get our feet back under us, right a few wrongs.

Remember how Joshua and Moses handled it back when the ten commandments were delivered? I’m afraid we’re heading for something not too different.

I predict that Bishop Willard will literally lick Ron Paul’s boots for a last minute endorsement in this tight race. The Paulistinians will make or break this race.

I said earlier that the Obama supporters were likely gleefully answering the robo calls rather than hanging up more than usual. I think that happens on both sides. Regardless, the Ras bump I saw was just a fleeting one or two day thing right after the convention and is almost all gone now. I expect a good increase on Romney’s numbers, depending on if the message gets around the media who is so in the tank for Obama. And of course if he doesn’t apologize for the MSM narrative “jump the gun”

5% are undecided? Are they telling me that 5% actually know nothing of these two candidates? They know nothing about the last few years of Obama (like him or not)? They know nothing about Romney either from his speeches or from political ads (like him or not)? This is even sadder than those who would vote for Obama again.

I only like polls that I agree with. :)

See, that post DNC ‘sugar high’ Obama +5 poll was just a “bump in the road”.

When Carter Reagan ran at this point in the race Carter was seven points ahead of Reagan,hazardous for liberals indeed.

With Obama looking more like Jimmy Carter by the hour Mitt should be up twenty points. Not encouraging.

I think Romney will win, and I think he’s already ahead now, but please stop invoking Reagan/Carter: you are forgetting 21% at this point said they would vote for a third party candidate, John Anderson. Reagan drew away almost all of his support-—Anderson finished with 6%. Reagan got the balance. No such person in this race.
