Yet Rasmussen shows the POS in Chief up 1. Unbelievable...
I don’t understand the rise up to -9 there over the weekend.
“47%”? Libya? Rallying behind the president when the country is attacked?
Today’s 3 day avg is for Fri, Sat, Sun. Romney will be up 2 by Wednesday.
Very happy to see Obama no longer getting his weekend bounce. I could be wrong, but these may be the cracks beginning to appear in Dear Readers bid for the White House. I’m hoping that we’re going to start seeing things breaking for Romney.
One upside is the overall number tends to lag the intensity figure. If today’s intensity index is -13, look for the overall to go to Romney +1 tomorrow. That’s about the only consistent indicator out there for trends.
But the approval levels for Obama are WAYYYYY too high.
Any data on past Presidents and how their Approval/Disapproval ratings affected the election? It’s hard for me to believe Obama can be this far underwater, for this long, and still have a good shot at being re-elected.
What’s going on in the swing states? It matters not that Romney will take Texas and Georgia with 60%.It does matter if Romney Loses FL...or OH....or VA...by 400 votes.
On that I wouldn't be surprised at all. If Israel and Iran go at it, Obama's approve rates will hit the stratosphere in the short term. It's a natural, "rally 'round the flag" response.
That is because Romney (stupidly) won’t say a single bad word about Obama.
WAKE UP ROMNEY.
All told, the Usurper is stuck at 48% (considering his approval rating and leaners in the Ras poll). We’re still looking at a Romney lead in the 51-53 to 49-47 range. When Gallup switches to likely voters it appears it will show a very similar balance. Where the MSM sees the Usurper widening his lead is lost on me. Over the past 2 months virtually nothing has changed, and Romney’s camp has to be content with the position they’re in against an incumbent with enormous advantages provided by the biased MSM and an incessant and brutal advertising attack on Romney over the summer.
The idiots numbers improved when the MSM polls switched from either “Adults” or “RV” to “LV”. This is the reason his numbers have went up the past couple of weeks. The LV model is assuming that the election will be more D than a generic poll of adults or RV’s.
I agree. Romney is going to have to start throwing some spears.. and soon.
I have zero problems with these numbers. The President simply cannot win with these numbers. Every poll has Obama trailing Independents by some 9-12% points. Couple that with Politico’s numbers showing Romney with a 14% lead among married middle class voters, and there are simply not enough “interest” group voters to draw from to make up the difference.
If the election were held today I suspect Obama would lose by 5-7%. Could be even worse come elections day.
