Posted on 05/16/2012 4:12:48 PM PDT by tobyhill
President Obama tops Republican Mitt Romney in a head-to-head matchup, according to the latest Fox News poll, which finds American voters feeling more positive about the economy.
Obama would have an advantage of 46 percent to 39 percent over Romney, if the election were held today. Three weeks ago the candidates were tied at 46 percent each.
The national poll, released Wednesday, shows the presidents lead is just outside the polls margin of sampling error.

Mark Hill is a doctor of ‘Hip Hop Culture”. I kid you not.
I doubt there’s 7% in this nation that would change their minds in a week. I guarantee there are no more than 5% undecided.
This can't be true because America yearns for a true conservative and Romney has shown via his prominent background that he is severely conservative, for example...
Give me a moment...I KNOW, no that wasn't conservative, well he...no that wasn't conservative either.
Well, I'm sure some one can show something conservative that Romney has made a name promoting, I'm just drawing a blank presently.
Today’s Rasmussen poll, which polls likely voters as opposed to registered voters, has it 47-46, Romney over Obama.
A Doctor of Stupid perhaps.
Exactly. Gay Marriage can’t have the support be proclaimed yet still get beat down by 20 points in swing state NC and 5 points in gay California.
A full 1/5 of all the registered voters ain't sayin'!
That's consistent with yesterday's comparable poll by a different company, although the results are reversed.
They should each fall to the bottom (of their minimum support level) in a quantum fashion ~ at different times.
Another month and there'll be 2/5 of the registered voters chosen at random who will express no selection!
Who do you like less, the guy who drove with his dog on the roof of the car or the guy who ate a dog?
42Dem/34Rep/20Ind/3 don’t know
IOW, junk poll!
Interestingly I’ve seen several bumper stickers with “Obama 2012”. No mention of Biden.
Absolutley!!! Hell, remember in 2004, even the election day exit polling had Kerry winning, and we know how that turned out.
It also over sampled Rats. 42% of responses from Rats only 34% from Republicans.
You have to know BOTH results ~ one of them to tell you how the candidates are doing in general, and the other to compare the one against the other.
and that’s the 7% they claim are still undecided.
You can take such a poll tomorrow and get a totally different result.
The polls that are pre-stratified (so that you get your 40% Dem, 10% Republican and 50% independents) may be taken to test the general validity of the other non pre stratified polls.
Not every poll is statistically valid but that doesn't mean they have no value to understanding the other polls that are statistically valid.
They pay people good money to do this stuff!
Exit polling is a very inexact science.
Fox News? Lost faith in them long ago.
Must have been a poll of all the Fox employees at the NY hq.
The Obama campaign is desperate right now. Every diversion they've tried has failed: contraceptive issue and women, race baiting in the Trayvon Martin case, “evolving” support of gay marriage...yada...yada! Everything is failed.
This fool is throwing anything and everything at the wall to see what will stick. I think we also heard another bull sh*t poll showing Dear Reader leading Romney amongst young college age students. I guess this is why the skinny Marxist has been visiting every college campus he can. Remember the pitiful number of students who came to see the Marxist in Ohio.
