Skip to comments.Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll (Romney 48%, Obama 44%)
Posted on 04/13/2012 10:05:22 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 24% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17.
In a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup, Mitt Romney earns 48% of the vote, while President Obama attracts 44%. That's Romney's biggest advantage in over a month.

I meant Obama will lose. If all the facebook posts of my former students (95% black) are any indication, NO ONE except the usual 15% of mindless drones will vote for Obama. Most of the kids are STILL liking Ron Paul.
Wow. That’s encouraging. Anything to get these folks OFF the Demplantation and see a different side of things is AWESOME!!
That said ...I sort of worry about Ron Paulites and which way a lot of them will go. I suspect most won’t even turn out to vote, which is what my goofy son did at the ONLY opportunity he would ever have to vote for RP.
“Obviously, Rassmussen did not poll Free Republic, or these numbers would have looked much better for Brak. :)”
You got that right.
I respectfully disagree. I believe Romney will carry roughly forty states, handily.
Obama will carry eight to ten states, but just barely. Romney will win in an almost landslide, 55% to Obama’s 45%. Both the house and the senate will go heavily Republican. The Democrat Party will be the minority party for at least the next twelve years.
The Democrat Party can halt the losses, but....only by forcing Obama to resign immediately, which they will not do for racial reasons only. The power brokers in the Democrat Party know that Obama is a loser, but....they will go down with him, rather then boot the first USA Black POTUS!!!
If you want to continue posting here it's probably best to keep it to yourself.
“it is going to be tight”
I’m cautiously optimistic that Obama will lose by double digits, but don’t expect our sensationalized media to admit that. What ratings do they get if the result is a foregone conclusion?
Four years ago I saw a lot more support for Obama in my neck of the woods; now I see more foreclosures & unemployment.
None of us will see all of the zots. Most of us won't see most of them. Some might not see any. Also, the zot button is not always applied in a perfectly scientific manner. This is a big issue and it will only get bigger as the election heats up (and it certainly will). I believe an edict from high atop Mt. FResno is in order.
I live in the Bronx and see only a 2012 sticker here or there at best. Same for Westchester.
I doubt it. I agree Romney won’t paste Obama, because he’s going to run the most boring conservative (and I don’t mean politically conservative, but risk free) campaign you have ever seen.
Reality is simple guys, and always has been, ANY republican that can’t be painted as an insane radical would beat Obama in November. Every single poll has indicated the electorate wants this idiot gone by overwhelming margins.
So the election boils down to simply this, is the option to replace Obama with someone who is going to make the electorate decide nope, he’s worse that Obama we’re staying put. Romney will never be able to be painted as worse than Obama to the swing voters, who have by and large abandoned the false prophet of Fauxbama.
I think Gingrich would have absolutely smoked OBama, because he would have taken the ideolgical battle right to america and framed the entire campaign on it and won. Romney won’t do that, so it will be a long boring campaign where the Democrats with nothing to offer but mud slinging because their record is utter crap are going to throw everything they can at Mitt, but its not going to work.
I think 5 points is a cakewalk for Romney. I agree it won’t be a blow out, because he won’t press any advantage he’s given and won’t take a damned risk at all.
Obama on the other hand will go negative, go over the top negative and the less it works the more negative and nasty it will go, and since they have nothing else to offer, will show his true character and by election day will be dropping in the polls every time he opens his mouth. This guy isn’t going to be a graceful loser, he’s going to be the bitter small man who was never capable of the job and the nastier he gets the lower he’ll poll.
Now with all that said, it disturbs me that Romney is going to be the nominee, but it is what it is at this point.
Number 1, I'm waiting to hear from Jim.
Number 2, if you think about it there will need to be much more detailed guidance than this.
Have you been here on FR for previous elections? The place catches on fire. There will be tons and tons of things to discuss. How will it be different this year? That is what we need to know.
Took her 15 minutes because she’s not a mom. a mom could have rebutted her in 2 minutes.
“Id just ask you to keep four things in mind: Justice Scalia just turned 78, Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year, Justice Breyer will be 76 in August, and Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.
Thats worth repeating over and over..”
Romney’s record of appointing judges in MA makes it even scarier! Probably little or no difference between Barack and Mitten’s list of candidates for SCOTUS.......
A vote for Romney is a gamble that he'll govern more like his recent rhetoric -- pro-Paul Ryan budget, etc., -- than he did as governor of Massachusetts. That's a point on which reasonable, committed conservatives can disagree.
It's not opinion, it's fact. Rasmussen has no peers when it's comes to polling accuracy.
Once the female vote starts to peel away from him its 8+. He started this whole war on women thing too soon. Too much time to counter attack.
This has to be one of his biggest platforms. Panic made him commit too soon.
The rule is very simple and I just reposted it here again for about the millionth time http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2871707/posts. FR is a pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-constitutionally limited government, pro-gun, pro-liberty organization. Romney is none of the above (literally). We will not vote for or support a known abortionist, homosexualist, gun grabbing, big government mandate loving constitution trampling progressive LIAR!! And we will not waste our limited resources on FR for those who wish to defy our strongly held positions or our nations founding principles.
I’ve been posting and reposting this message forever on FR. It’s on our front page and at the top of our main forum page. And every day now I have to post reminder to the thick headed. I’m getting pretty damn impatient with the surrender monkeys and useful idiots who continue slapping me in the face, stomping on my toes and poking me in the eye.
Romney is an offensive evil bastard to me!! Government approved/forced wholesale slaughter of millions the innocent unborn is just about the most evil thing I can think of. And this asshole Romney has we the taxpayers picking up the tab for his evildoing! This is the American Holocaust! Future generations will look back on this era and wonder why decent people didn’t put a stop to this slaughter.
NO ROMNEY!! FR WILL NOT SUPPORT ROMNEY!!
I hope you didn't take my post as a threat. It was a warning. I have been here for many elections, and voicing support for the wrong Republican candidate will get you zotted, no matter how long you've been posting.
Sure it will, but zots are another matter entirely. The management appears to be practicing an extreme level of tolerance in that regard.
>That said ...I sort of worry about Ron Paulites and which way a lot of them will go. I suspect most wont even turn out to vote, which is what my goofy son did at the ONLY opportunity he would ever have to vote for RP.
I’d love for Ron Paul to run 3rd party...he’ll take WAY more Obama voters.
