Mitt Romney leads Obama in first Gallup national tracking poll
The Hill ^ | April 16, 2012 | Jonathan Easley

Mitt Romney leads President Obama in the first Gallup national daily tracking poll.

Romney took 47 percent support from surveyed registered voters, while Obama took 45 in a poll conducted between April 11 and April 15. Romney's edge though is within the poll's three point margin of error.

Independents tipped the scale in favor of Romney, going for the former Massachusetts governor 45 percent to 39.

Obama has already spent more then all of the Presidents before him combined. Just think on that. All of them —R or D.

I think some people here would rather Obama win just so they can say “told you Romney couldn’t win ,” at the expense of our great nation. Or maybe they want Obama to win another term in the theory that it’ll bring about a political apocalypse. I really don’t know.

I’m with you. No way Romney is worse than Obama. NONE! And I don’t even like the guy! I don’t think any of us do! In fact, I think most of his support comes from people who see no other alternative!

Other people can elect their preferred socialist, and if he’s the slightly less socialist guy, I suppose that’s preferrable.

I can’t vote for either socialist.

Hey, I love Sarah Palin, but I wouldn’t say she was a good basketball player. Sure, her FT shot won the game, but it was her only point of the game!

Now Obama is TERRIBLE! I believe he was a bencher.

The message will be that it’s pointless to woo conservatives who act like petulant children. This is the point that Santorum missed so badly: we are trying to win an election, not usher in a new world order.

Hate to break it to you, but Newt has lost.

I hate to break it to you, but the GOP convention is not until the end of August.

I believe his campaign bounced a check yesterday.

Gingrich: “That check was drawn in December. The account actually was closed by the time they processed it. It wasn’t a question of money. That particular bank account was closed.”

Maybe you shouldn't be posting BS about our candidate on FR!

And this poll is registered voters.

As for NC, Obama “won” it by the narrowest of margins, he won’t do better.

VA though I’m a little worried about. VA, OH and FL are must wins.

PA, MI and OH could all go GOP this election, making up for VA and NC. That’s where a VP from one of those “Rust Belt” states could loom HUGE.

...you dream if you believe MI or PA is going red...PA is the most corrupt state in the Union, I know, I’ve lived here for half of my six decades; both are union hotbeds, run by thugs unleashed by big city machines come electon day, and are none too careful about vote fraud...and OH? I don’t see Mitt getting much traction there, with Kasich’s numbers tanking and the union thugs mobilizing...bottom line, Mitt makes it closer than anybody else would (for the newtoids on this forum, he’d take two or three Deep South states and lose all the rest),but Obama gets his second term...

Bad on me for not catching your sarcasm. I’m usually quicker to pick up on it. I love it! Keep it up.

Don’t be stupid.

It’s Romney all the way! Plus the Senate, the House and 2 maybe even 3 Supreme Court nominees...

So what’s your problem?

I take it you'd much rather vote for the Kenyan communist who launched his political career in the kitchen of the anti-American terrorist Bill Ayers, and spent 20 years of his life attending the “church” services of the arch racist hate monger Jeremiah Wright?
