The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 47%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and another two percent (2%) remain undecided. See daily tracking history.
Fifty-one percent (51%) of voters have a favorable opinion of Romney and 48% say the same of Obama.

Odd, no crosstabs.
Oh, well. I will take R+2 with less than week to go
Obama continues to stay at 47%. That is the number that needs to be discussed. An incumbent at 47% has no chance of being re-elected. The only polls that show him getting even to 49% are D+7 samples, which will never happen.
I still predict, R+2 turnout, and a Romney win of 5-6 points.
Obama will get that bump is a few NE states he was going to win anyway. Like New York and New Jersey. Pennsylvania is in play but unaffected by the storm
Yes, but he looks so Presidential\ sarc
this is the most over hyped weather event ive ever seen. Basically a bad thuderstorm, in a couple of states that werent even competitive.
Did anyone look in on The New Weather Channel last night? It used to be called Fox News. Boring format. I watched Monday Night Football instead. Also boring. And FR was SLOW. Not a good Monday night.
Important battleground states like Ohio, Virginia and florida, being so close (if indeed they are) could sway a couple points toward O because of the face time he’ll get from MSM looking all heroic, and they will surely help him out any way they can. I hope we’re wrong, but it makes me nervous.
nail on head.
You’d think Katrina and Andrew just rolled into two states , them being NY,NJ
I’m not seeing reporters in WV reporting on the scene or even western PA but then again the media think NJ and NY where they live and work is America and the rest of us who have had to put up with much worse storms and tornado’s which have wiped out towns or even floods in Tn is just what ever states.
Running for their lives LOL
What a drama queen!
I live in the Northeast and while we had a good blow yesterday here in northern MA, things are already getting back to normal. A bunch of branches and leaves everywhere but it's autumn - this is the time of year we have to rake our yards anyhow. We have some power outages but we get this in any big storm. By the weekend, this storm is going to be a distant memory anyhow.
Hardest hit areas were NY/NJ and even those states will be getting back to normal by the weekend, except maybe on the immediate coast which are heavily Democratic anyhow. Impact on election will be close to nil.
I agree with this. They’ll also show clips of Romney saying that FEMA needs to be shrunk and more power needs to go to states in disaster situations.
Obama will come out of all of this looking like a hero. In the meantime, his total failure in Libya and the entire Middle East will fall completely off of the radar. This storm couldn’t have happened at a better time for him.
I know circumstances were different (by that I mean party labels), but there was no rallying around the President after Katrina. In fact, there was a crucifiction of a President after Katrina. Obviously, the media is going to try to use this to prop up Obama.
What I have to hope would happen here is that Romney is not going to lose votes. He has this election won in terms of votes, where he is at 50% in most key states, and Obama 45-48%. I have to doubt someone who’s made up their mind changes it. It could easily impact those undecideds and swing a few back to Obama who otherwise have been hesitant to vote for him again this cycle. Unless Obama does something heroic, other than ‘be there’ looking important, I don’t see this have a radical effect. This election was all but over two days ago, and it will take a major swing to change that.
Why don’t you hand-wringers save us the trouble and get into bed with the DU Bedwetters?
Good Lord, we get enough negativism from the MSM. We sure as heck don’t need it from Freepers!
Agree with you. Not sure having his mug out there does much good for a president with his record.
Could backfire...the more his face is on TV, the more people think “I don’t want to see this guy for another 4 years.”
They’re calling it a perfect storm. I hope it doesn’t turn out to be O’s perfect storm.
Bull. Nobody's going to forget what a disaster these last four years have been because of a frigging storm. Any overt moves to politicize the event will be greeted with contempt.
You are way too concerned. Give it a break.
I think you way overestimate the intelligence of the average American voter.
I said it before. This storm likely saved Obama’s presidency. It got Bengazi and Romney out of the news just in time. And when that ahole Christie sings his praises, those soft undecided types see that and think “Maybe he is a good President after all...”
