The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows President Obama attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided...

47% video is kicking in
Fannntastic. Let the country burn IDGAF anymore.
Like everything with barry it will fade. This was the media pushing the 47 pct but as the truth slowly drips out it will be Romney ahead
I suspect the 47% video is influencing the mushy-headed 5-7%. This was my fear. Watch Obama continue to use quotes from that video in strategically placed geographic areas. Romney needs to get more aggressive on this issue or it may be an Achilles heel.
The Democrat media and entertainment complex may just be too much to overcome. In that case, America is finished.
The silver lining I do find is 17 countries outpace America on the economic freedom list now. When it all goes to sh*t — and it will if Obamugabe is reelected — it’d be good to know there are a couple options.
Estonia is looking good right now.
I think you will see Obama up 5 by week’s end. But by next week it’ll be back to a tie. No matter what, it all comes down the economy - and it is lousy... and Obama owns it.
This is a bad week for Romney (unfortunately just as he was going ahead after the DNC bounce deflated). Oh. Well.
Nah most polls support mitts statement, this is the sugar high barry is barry
Romney was right. These people will vote for free stuff no matter who gets hurt by it. To these voters, it's all about "gimme gimme."
("Thou shall not covet thy neighbors goods.")
The problem with these daily polls from Rasmussen, is there seems to be 4-5% who will change their minds if somebody down the hall farts.
“Typical white people” as Barry would say.
They are based on a three day average so he picks up trends quickly. And it is undeniable, at least in the short-term, these comments have dinged Romney pretty badly.
lol your right within a week the ME will still be hot,obamacare will still tax 6 million people per the cbo barry still want know how much the natl debt is need I go on
Hope you’re right, but right now 93-95% of the likely voters have made up their mind. The last 5-7% are, by definition, ill-informed, apolitical types who are easily convinced by demagoguery and propaganda. No poll easily captures their tendencies, no matter what the pundits claim. The 47% video is easy fodder for the Dumbocrats to use on the addle-brained.
The poll results that are most troubling here is that Obama’s approval is rising, even on specific issues like foreign affairs and the economy - the two issues he is currently bungling big time. Clearly a dfisconnect bewteen the American electorate and reality.
Here in Pennsyltucky the Dems are absolutely bombarding the airwaves with ads attacking Romney and other Republicans for supporting “the outsourcing of our jobs”.
Never mentioning that NAFTA was signed into law by Bill Clinton, and the offshoring of jobs continued enthusiastically and unabated throughout 2 Democrat administrations. AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!
At this point in the race, a bandwagon effect takes hold in all the undecideds: they want to go with the winner. It kills me to say it, but right now that looks like the effete, jug-eared mediocrity.
Not really if barry hasnt sold them yet he probably cant In a week they will be saying 47 is that the price of a gallon of gas 4.70
neverunderestimate the shallowness of the undecided
“Estonia is looking good right now”
It sure is.
Hey y’all. It’s called statistical noise. Chill out.
Where are Romney’s ads, by the way? They are nowhere to be seen in NC.
” in the short-term, these comments have dinged Romney pretty badly.’
They wouldn’t hurt so much if Romney would just charge forward with the theme of his remarks, dependent government vs individual responsibility and reward for achievement.
It should be the center point to his campaign.
I agree. Americans like to be on the winning team, no matter how dirty it wins.
Yep - this is one reason the left wants to ban public posting of "The TEN" - it undercuts their entire political platform...
It does Obama no good to have 70% of California, the left coast and East Coast, and then to lose by 10,000 votes in WI, KY, OH, VA, NC, NH, etc. Being popular would have elected Kerry.
News report today are that the Inauguration preparations and construction are underway at the Capital now.

2013 inaugural ceremony to be pushed back a day

Jan. 20 — presidential Inauguration Day — is a Sunday, so all the pomp and ceremony will be pushed back a day.
As is tradition, the winner of the November election will be sworn in privately at noon on Jan. 20, but the actual ceremony will be on Jan. 21.
The office of Sen. Charles Schumer, elected to serve as chairman of the 2013 Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, noted “this is the seventh time in U.S. history that the constitutionally mandated inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday.”
I can attest to the fact the Obama campaign is still waging an air campaign here in NC. And the lithe and lovely Michelle was just in Greensboro the other day.
It is officially over people
Go fluff the EBT crowd at DU.
Joined in March 2012 and waging the Obama psych ops campaign !
How is Chicago and Axelrod AstroTurf campaign coming along ?
Go back to DU, troll.
And the problem with that is people are already sick to death of these ads. So I question the wisdom of unleashing waves of them in October.
Romney really needs to do well in the debates and change things up as opposed to just canning his answers to segments of his stump speach.
And by delaying, he’s allowed the Democrats to define him.
Maybe because R and R are pretty far ahead there these days....
Seems as if NC gets it.
Can these Obama trolls get any more obvious !
Joined March 2012 !
Virginia is bombarded with ads from both sides; probably a bit more from Obama, but plenty of Romney.
If Romney has to spend money on ads in North Carolina, he’s already lost. I’m sure it’s a tactical decision.
And it just isn't NC; I am hearing from a lot of people in swing states that Obama continues to dominate Romney in the ad wars.
We are finished. The democrat media/government complex are getting away with the big lie.
*cough - bull sh!t - cough*
Even if Obozo IS up this day according to Raz, he is still under the magic 50% approval....
He’s stewing, pal...
So go suck your thumb in the corner.
Romney is winning NC and the 0bama campaign is pulling out. Please get the facts.
I think you are right. Romney is going to win in a landslide. Our country is in the worst shape it has been since the Great Depression and this fool of a Prez has spent more money in 3 years than GWB in 8....and things are getting drastically worse, which most people realize.
You need to turn off the propaganda media if it is screwing with your head this much newb.
This isn’t a Chicken Little web forum as posters such as yourself are thankfully in the minority.
Chin up Buckaroo!!! You will be in for a big surprise on 11/6.
We are not the “squeaky wheels” but rather the ones applying the grease.
