Poll: Obama-Romney race tied; Obama supporters more energized (CNN to 0bama's rescue! 52% approval)
Communist News Network ^ | 6-1-12 | Paul Steinhauser

Posted on 06/02/2012 3:30:03 AM PDT by GR_Jr.

Washington (CNN) - The race for the White House remains very close, according to a new national poll, partly because neither President Barack Obama nor Republican challenger Mitt Romney have a clear advantage on issue number one - the economy.

A CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that Obama supporters are more energized right now than those backing Romney.

According to the poll, 49% of registered voters say that if the November election were held today, they would vote for Obama, while 46% say they would cast a ballot for Romney, the unofficial GOP presidential nominee. The president's three point margin is within the survey's sampling error. Obama had a nine point advantage in CNN's last national poll, which was conducted in early April.

The president's approval rating continues to hover around the 50% mark. Fifty-two percent give Obama thumbs up on the job he's doing in the White House, with 47% saying they disapprove of how he's handling his duties.

The survey also indicates Americans are divided in the battle for Congress, with 48% saying they would back the Democratic candidate in their congressional district and 45% saying they would support the GOP candidate.

I live in commie central (San Francisco and Berkeley).

The commies are not energized.

They just aren't.

If the commies were energized I would see it.

I don't see it.

Well, I agree with the poll in the sense that none of us are thrilled to have Romney as our nominee.

I am not thrilled that Romney is the GOP nominee.

Voting against Obama will be the most joyous and exciting vote I have ever cast.

Time to dump the lying Socialist fraud Willard and replace him with a REAL Conservative like Gov. Scott Walker.

Time to stop posting worthless nonsense and get down to business.

If it weren’t for RomneyCare...there would never have been ObamaCare...

If the Free Republic He-Man Mitt Haters Club had a children's auxiliary, this post would be worthy of it.

If you have to be worthless, please try to be crazy worthless instead of boring worthless.

Romney is NOT the candidate yet.

What a load!

Romney just swept TX and he's going to sweep CA and NJ and several other states on Tuesday.

This thing is over. It is time for your sobbing to end as well.

In the battle for crucial independent voters, the poll indicates Romney holds a 51%-39% advantage.
****************************************

LOL, I wonder just how many Dems they had to over sample to get a positive result for Obama. There is no way that Romney can hold a 12% advantage with independent voters and be losing.

Anybody staying home, doing a write-in or voting third party is casting a vote for Obama.

Biggest bull crap I have ever read. I can’t wait until next round when they nominate Bloomberg as our nominee.....most of you will be kissing his ring too. Repulsive behavior by you and your ilk. Virgil Goode for 2012!!!! Every vote counts! Real Patriots should vote for Virgil Goode!!!!!

Scott Walkers day will come. He and other good Conservatives are the future of the Republican party. Walker has a job to finish in WI first. He is building his Conservative credentials, saving his state and fighting and standing his ground. I hope he has a HUGE victory Tuesday.

For now, Willard Romney is the space filler. He’s no Conservative, that’s for sure. But he is the only one we have at this moment to stop 0bama. They this election cycle isn’t to elect Romney....it’s to vote out 0bama and elect many Tea Party Conservatives to congress. If we have a Conservative congress, they will force Willard to the right as much as possible.

The RINO establishment may have gotten their man for the Presidency, but they are losing the congress. 2010 and 2012 are building blocks for the future. Give it time. 2016 or 2020 may be Scott Walkers time.

Agree with what you say, GR, and I pray that we can elect enough Conservatives to congress to make a difference.

If we think we are up against a huge force now(getting BO out), wait until we have to stand up to the Rino GOP Establishment by fighting to get the entitled “it’s my turn” Rinos out and our candidates in..But I’d rather focus on worthwhile efforts like this.

The Karl Roves of this world don’t like Conservatives and have made that very clear so far. If they squeak Rom. in, be prepared for the arrgogant ones to strut like peacocks and try to throw Tea Party patriots under the bus before we know what hit us.

"RINO Establishment"? Like Nelson Rockefeller, Henry Luce, and the New York Herald Tribune are still around?

Washington Republicans thought Romney was the best of a poor field of candidates, so they supported him. But really, Romney's victory is a sign that there isn't much of an Establishment left in the party.

People like to call the most moderate candidate the "Establishment candidate," but really if there were a party establishment by this point it would be conservative and be able to head-off candidates like Romney or McCain.

The Cheater/Backstabber RomneyCARE has ONLY 660 votes.
The rest are in his dreams.

RomneyCARE should drop out. NOW.

I’m still voting third party but I get the situation. The anger against Obama is driving the election.

Larry Sabato 1 Tea Party 0

I would have voted for anybody but Romney, Hunstman and Paul.

As of this morning, the Rasmussen poll has Romney ahead of Obama by 48% to 44%. This shows a movement away from Abama since last Monday. Perhoas it was the Friday jobs report.I do not believe this CNN poll at all.

"Time to stop posting worthless nonsense"

Better be careful with that suggestion, sugar. That would eliminate your entire reason for being on FR.

“Wow, did you think that one all up by yourself, Einstein ?”

Yep. For an issue as obvious as this one, it really doesn’t take alot of effort.

Well, as one other FReeper pointed out, only a liberal mind (or lack of one) could conclude that if a Conservative opposes both ultraleftists Zero and Willard, they are somehow working for Zero.

Your ad hominem merely reinforces the truth of what was posted. If you’ve a rebuttal...please post or link. Otherwise take the name-calling over to DU
