Daily Swing State Tracking Poll Swing State Tracking: Romney 50%, Obama 46%
Rasmussen ^ | 10/25 | Rasmussen

Posted on 10/25/2012 7:12:13 AM PDT by tatown

Thursday, October 25, 2012

The full Swing State tracking update offers Rasmussen Reader subscribers a combined view of the results from 11 key states won by President Obama in 2008 and thought to be competitive in 2012. The states collectively hold 146 Electoral College votes and include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. If you do not already have a Rasmussen Reader account, subscribe now.

Platinum Members have access to detailed demographic information.

In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 50% of the vote to Obama’s 46%. Two percent (2%) like another candidate in the race, and another two percent (2%) are undecided.

This is now the third day in a row - and the fifth time in the past six days - that Romney has hit the 50% mark in the combined swing states. This survey is conducted on a rolling seven-day basis, and most of the interviews for today’s update were completed before the end of Monday night’s presidential debate. Romney has now held a modest lead for 14 of the last 17 days; Obama was ahead twice, and the candidates ran even once.

No way they are tied with Independents, Independents are going strong for Romney in every poll.

Yeah I know but I was hoping for more from PA. If you go back and look at past Rasmussen numbers for PA, other than 1 poll which showed Obama up 11, Mitt has gained NO traction there over the past few weeks.

The sample is +7 Democrat

Is that a reasonable sample for PA?

My sister was saying that she heard the Reagan debate or interview that Romney is using to model his response to Libya and Romney is almost using the exact same words and phrases that Reagan used in regard to Carter’s hostage crisis.

Last night, on Fox, Condeleeza Rice was interviewed about the Benghazi attack and she did the same thing, even using the same words that we have heard from the Obama administration.

If 49.5 is the magic number, RCP today has O with 253 EVs.

So 3/7ths of this poll is post third debate. Looks like Barry didn’t get the bounce the media was working for.

- I just watched a former CIA man speak to Neil Cavuto on Fox News Channel about Obama, Paneta, Hillary, etc. -

- “BAD” and “SILLY” people who just watched for hours (in “real time”) as Ambassador Stevens and three others were tortured and died and - and King Obama & his Court did nothing to help them or to rescue them -


Can you imagine General George Patton saying this to General Eisenhower when US Airbourne soldiers were encircled by the Germans and freezing:

“Golly Ike!

If I take our tankers to save them we might lose some of my men!

Let’s just wait and HOPE things improve and maybe even CHANGE for the better!

Anyone want another of my beers while we eat this delicious tender Kobi beef?”

“It is uncanny how the Democrat in Ohio seems to get the same share in the state as he does in the general (or slightly less). In other words, if Obama loses the national popular vote, history says he is toast in Ohio.

51-49 Mitt take Ohio.”

Agreed. The filter nationally does work its way down into the state level and Ohio is the benchmark. I’ve said NH is the bellwether and hope it proves out.

I’m feeling Ohio will go for Romney and in the end it won’t be the difference. There will another state or two that falls if this momentum continues.

You have to tip your hat to Romney and his staff. A lot of folks were hitting the panic button but they didn’t. Very impressive.

BO and the Mooch are on their knees begging people to vote early. Is something bad about BO coming out that they already know about....makes me wonder.
