In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obamas 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
This is the first time Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey since September 19. Until today, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with most of the responses now coming since Romneys debate win last Wednesday night.
Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now certain they will vote for Romney and will not change their minds. Forty percent (40%) are certain they will vote for the president.
In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin.

This only covers the swing states. Team RR is close to the magic 50% mark
Add 5% to Romney for turnout and it is President Romney.
What makes this even more impressive is the fact that Michigan and Pennsylvania are included in this group.
After the VP debate and the next Potus debate New Jersey, Minnesota, Oregon, & connecticut could be included in this.
Since even late night TV feels free to ridicule Obama’s debate fiasco, it is now politically acceptable to be against Obama in the polls.
He’s no longer “made” anymore.
3% undecided is getting pretty small. People are starting to make their decisions. I continue to believe that the majority of people were seeking an alternative to Obama. The negative ads from Obama over the summer kind of kept people up in the air. THe debate changed all that. It validated that Mitt Romney is a good alternative to Obama.
I believe Obama will never consistently regain the lead in any credible poll again.
Why stop there? Let's go for the big guns: Massachusetts, Minnesota and California!
Well we can dream.
I live in NJ (southern) and I have not seen one single obama sign on the lawns, and only two in/on cars. I am praying New Jersey flips.
Unfortunately, North Jersey has become North Mexico in many areas, as well as a huge black population, and lots of liberal whites to boot. However, in a big big win it’s possible. Unlikely.
Wait until THURSDAY’s numbers, when the weekend sampling is out of the poll.. Romney is up 4-5 minimal, and frankly always has been.
46-40 Romney for those “certain” to vote. Wow that is devastating for Obama. Only 40 percent of swing-staters are sure to pull the lever for him. Means a large amount may either switch to Romney or stay home.
You cannot be an incumbent with only 40 percent definite support 4 weeks before the election and hope to win. Not gonna happen
Four weeks from today, folks!
The problem is that it is an average of those states.
“Rasmussen Reports issues our daily Swing State Tracking Poll to supplement, not replace, individual state polling. In Colorado and Ohio, Obama leads by a point. In Iowa and Nevada, the president is up two. He now leads by three in Wisconsin and has jumped to double-digit leads in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Romney leads by one in Virginia and two in Florida. Hes ahead by three in Missouri, North Carolina and New Hampshire.”
Without OH, Romney will lose.
causing a GIANT TSUNAMI ....
that will sweep Obama and his minions into the dustbin of history.
Chicago “surprise” coming soon. Just sayin’....
“Because I thought he was going to win.”
That mentality still drives many voters decisions, even today.
Please, please don’t get cocky...the BEAST isn’t dead yet and they are going to pull all the stops from here on! Hey, look they are using their BIG GUN..ahhhh BIG BIRD, that should do the trick and destroy Romney! BUT 4wks is an eternity! KEEP PRAYING and Fasting for our country...God please give Romney and Ryan the victory and protect them from those who intend to do them harm. Look GOD IS OUR only SOURCE! Because God is our secret weapon, let them have Big Bird we have the Big Man in the sky!
Wow and look how soft Obama’s support is.
