The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows President Obama earning 47% of the vote and Mitt Romney attracting 44% support. Five percent (5%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another five percent (5%) are undecided.

Actually, he was the first pollster to see that race narrowing. True, he didn't poll the week-and-a-half before the election (not sure why), but he did detect a much closer race before anyone else did.
PPP is hit and miss.
The truth is they all are.
“...True, he didn't poll the week-and-a-half before the election (not sure why)...”
Because he thought it was in the bag for Marcia.
I'll say it again, no way Obama went up 11% in one week. And if it was a GOP candidate that went up that much in a week, I'd say the same thing.
Many FReepers have used the phrase “special sauce” regarding Rasmussen and his polls; they're onto something.
Rasmussen is one point of data, not the entire data set.
I will have to admit that after Romney went after New, Santorum, Perry and Cain like a rabid dog in the primaries then switched and is doing a McCain on Obama via the PAC that wanted to run Rev. Wright Adds I am quite disenfranchised with Romney and the GOP. In fact I can truly say I no longer consider myself a Republican. I am now a conservative Independent!!!
New = Newt
Well.. OK.. in the absolute best-case scenario. But that’s quite a hope there re: Iowa.
Well done. I left the GOP after the stunningly pathetic fealty the Repub senators showed to Obama by passing the DADT repeal and ratifying New START during the lame-duck session in 2010. The GOP had the numbers to stop them, but chose not to.
I'm not happy about Romney either but you make it seem as though we had a better choice. I would have loved to have someone like a Sarah Palin run but it didn't happen. So we were stuck with the choices we had. If the other GOP candidates like Gingrich and Santorum didn't catch fire with the conservative base, what makes you think they'd be doing any better against Obama in these daily polls? If it was Gingrich and not Romney, do you seriously think that Gingrich would be doing better in the polling right now? And if so, where would those votes be coming from? And please don't try and say that there are conservatives voting for Obama because they are unhappy with Romney.
“Five percent (5%) would vote for a third party candidate”
The five percent that will give the country to the Communists.
Then you better start working hard to get that 5% to 10% then 20% then 40%.
Or just whine. Do or whine. The choice is yours.
“Only state by state info is relevant from this point on.”
Conservative Independent..I’ll just do Conservative but if it works for you, go for it.
I want to preface my comment with the fact that I am anti Romney all the way..but I think his coming out against Jeremiah Wright bashing may have been campaign/GOP-E strategy in that they want him to stay above the fray ..and will leave the attacks to the PACs. We’ll see!
My cleaning gal is here with her 19 year old daughter. I asked her if she is registered to vote.
Me “Are you going to vote for Scott Walker on June 5?”
Her: “When is the debate??”
I guess she means between Barrett and Walker. I don’t even know if there is one coming up..and who cares?
Me: “Scott Walker is a great Governor, is balancing the budget here in WI, standing up to the unions, not raising taxes and he needs your vote”.
Her mother: “Oh, she’ll vote for Walker. Don’t worry!”
RCP is meaningless Bullsquat. A polling average that gives wildly biased push-polls equal weight with legitimate polls.
Special sauce is always used with Zogby polls, not Rasmussen
“Or just whine. Do or whine. The choice is yours.”
The 5% usually are usually the whiners, because regardless of who wins they don’t get their way.
Not me, I'm happy. I have a Strict Constitutionalist like Goode to vote FOR.
Feels good to have a Goode option.
incumbent polling at 47% is still a mess for barry and he knows it.
problem is that romney is a wimp and not showing gusto and leadership
Obama/Holder/Jarrett/Axelrod thank you for your support.
Works for me.
