The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows President Obama attracting support from 50% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.
These results include leaners, people who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question. Platinum Members can still see the more detailed numbers along with demographic breakdowns, and additional information from the tracking poll on a daily basis.

Obama is at 50% but this is with a "full" weekend. I think he will go down by Wednesday
Three polls out this morning...
Rasmussen: O 50 R 47
Politico/GW: ) 49 R 47
ABC/WaPo: O 49 R 47
All essentially the same - right down to Romney’s 47% (ironically). And all using a D+3 sample.
This race is a dead heat with Obama up by a hair. It is far from over. And Romney/Ryan have 4 debates and millions in ads to come.
Looking very, very bleak right now... 52% want Obamacare repealed, but they still want Obama anyway. Americans have lost their sanity.
Same pattern by midweek, barry will be around -14/-17 and the race will be tied or a point difference either way
yep. Scott seems to be pulling D+3 to err on the democratic side. It is still too high. Will close by midweek though.
“All essentially the same - right down to Romneys 47% (ironically). And all using a D+3 sample.”
Yet libs have been crowing “it’s over” for weeks now. Idiots. I have to admit I’m much more confident about Romney than I ever was about McCain at this point in the campaign.
I can’t believe people are throwing in the towel on this one. You have a challenger at 47%, and about 5-7% of Obama supporters say they are open to changing their minds about him.
Keep in mind that amongst those who are “leaners”, the president has a 16/60 something approval/disapproval rating.
These people are there to be taken, or they won’t vote at all.
Did I read somewhere that in recent times at least every president who’s been *re* elected got *more* support the second time around than the first? I absolutely refuse to believe that Osama will do *better* this time than last in a *single* state.
Is this the first time he’s reached the 50% mark? We read no President has won reelection with numbers lower than 50%. He seemed to be flailing in the high 40’s which made me a bit more confident but this poll gives me the heebie jeebies even with the margin of error.
These are the same people who go to games and leave in the 3rd qtr down by a TD. This one is tied and only the formula is keeping Obozo ahead.
Pray for America
I am very confident this morning. Not sure where the doomsdayers are coming from this morning.
We have been told for 2 weeks that race was over. Here we are 2 days before the first debate and 3 national polls come out on same day showing race essentially a dead heat.
I am more pumped than ever.
Not good to see the idiot at 50%.
We are living in a cult of personality in 2012. The media is doing verything it can to prop this cult up and sadly it seems to be working w too many uninformed dolts.
I have a story about the mentality we are dealing with in this country.
I was coming back on the light rail from the Orioles game on Saturday night and there was a group of guys talking about politics. A young African-American lady was there and said “Romney?!!? No way I’m voting for him...I don’t want my food stamps taken away”.
Unfortunately, I think this country is lost and the only thing we can do is pray.
He’s at 50% but if you look at his approval he’s at 24% strong approval. That 50% is a house of cards.
President Obama’s move toward 50% seen in all the other polls is now showing up with Rasmussen.
This is what we get when the GOP Establishment foists a “electable” candidate on us. Does anyone remember Bob Dole??? Because this is where things are going.
I wonder if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were running in 1988, would they have used the Willy Horton ad?
Probably not. They would have preferred to lose to Dukakis.
Just my opinion.
Indeed I’ve been praying that the mentally challenged moochers forget to vote come election day. I’m also fearful an election this close is very easy to steal.
