R: 47% O: 46%
Obama’s convention bounce has left the building.
This doesn’t take into account his latest debacle with the ambassador.
Good sign, but need to show a lead in Florida and Ohio. Would also feel a little better if more than one poll, which I had never heard of before, showed a lead in Virginia.
Romney...in reality...probably never lost the lead. If election were held today, landslide, favor, Romney.
Thanks for this news. The Fox poll had me depressed and the Intertade and Nate Silvers odds of Obama winning are higher than they were previously.
This latest debacle could cut both ways. 1. people tend to rally around the president when the country is under attack; 2. the entire news cycle yesterday was bashing Romney for his comments on the issue.
The Fox poll was probably infiltrated by dummies.
The embassy incident showed gutless and weak this admin has made the US image to be.
Despite the best efforts of the MSM to protect Obama, most Americans are not stupid and can see that this admin apologising makes our country look weak.
Only one point?
I am totally convinced that the American People are brain dead.
This guy is a disaster.
I really don’t think the typical Obama voter looks at the 9/11 assassination of an ambassador as an attack on our country, they’re too busy looking at pictures of the Kardashians.
Only one man looked presidential during all of this. Mitt Romney.
I still haven’t seen a single Obama sign here in union rich western PA.
That's usually the case because when America is under attack, the president typically gets out front, talks to the public, and assures them that we will fight back.
But Obama has been so weak, while Romney is the one being strong; this issue is showing how badly we need a new foreign policy course.
And regardless of what the press says, people know that Romney is right.
If people rally around a president whose administration apologizes to these killers, who is flying out to Las Vegas to campaign and going on Letterman while our embassieS are uner attack, and after our ambassador is murdered by the local citizens, then the imbecility is what we need to be most concerned with.
So now the question is: Will Obama be hurt or helped by the Libya-Egypt situation. Common sense says he will be hurt. In actuality, it could be different. We should have a sense of it tomorrow. We will know for sure by Saturday.
I doubt it. There are simply more democrats than republicans. Almost all liberals are “democrats”, while most conservatives are independents. Most people that define themselves as “republican” are moderates. Let’s be honest, conservatives think for themselves. Why do you think so many arguments erupt on FR, while if you go to DU, they are all singing “Kumbaya”?
which just shows that the media still has far too much power to control what the majority thinks. Obama spent the last 6 months of 2008 bashing everything Bush was doing. Kerry spent 2004 doing the same. Personally, I had not problem with it then (I felt like they were just demagogue the issues but oh well, that’s the game). The idea that you aren’t criticize foreign policy is a ridiculous one. What Romney said was fine, and timid at that. The media never questioned what he was saying (The white house did walk back what they said which WAS an apology). Listening to the coverage (online clips mostly) is a reminder that the Media REALLY wants Obama to win and I don’t know if their is much Mitt can do about it being the person he seems to be
Rasmussen should expect to have several SEIU thugs show up at his house late at night on the orders of David Axlehead to discuss his poll sampling methods.
Spot on! Dems are constantly oversampled...
The List: Which presidential polls were most accurate?
The Pew Research Center and Rasmussen Reports were the most accurate in predicting the results of the 2008 election, according to a new analysis by Fordham University political scientist Costas Panagopoulos.
The Fordham analysis ranks 23 survey research organizations on their final, national pre-election polls, as reported on pollster.com.
On average, the polls slightly overestimated Obamas strength. The final polls showed the Democratic ahead by an average of 7.52 percentage points 1.37 percentage points above his current 6.15-point popular vote lead. Seventeen of the 23 surveys overstated Obamas final victory level, while four underestimated it. Only two Rasmussen and Pew were spot on.
