Skip to comments.Rasmussen: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Obama 46% Romney 44%
Posted on 09/08/2012 8:39:15 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows President Obama attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 44% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided
The president is enjoying a convention bounce that has been evident in the last two nights of tracking data. He led by two just before the Republican convention, so he has already erased the modest bounce Romney received from his partys celebration in Tampa. Perhaps more significantly, Democratic interest in the campaign has soared. For the first time, those in the presidents party are following the campaign as closely as GOP voters. Interest in a campaign is typically considered a good indicator of turnout. Platinum Members can monitor enthusiasm, demographic breakdowns and additional information from the tracking poll on a daily basis.
The presidents bounce began the night after Bill Clinton spoke to the convention and received rave reviews.

I sure hope so. I have absolutely ZERO faith in 50% of this country.
Obama’s Intrade number has been steadily falling since 9/6.
This is really not that bad. In the same poll last week, Romney had about a 5 point swing from -1 to +4. After the Dems week-long infomercial and Obama’s dismal speech, if all they have is a 2 point lead, we’re in really good shape.
The $100 million ad buy with the Romney campaign should change the race in the swing states for sure, and I expect Romney to get the best of the debates-remember, off the teleprompter, Obama is a stumbling bumbling fool.
Don't bet on that at all.
His masters are in OPEC. His bowing to the king of Saudi was no accident.
Each poll belies its own internals. Ive been saying landslide for the last two months. You simply can’t win when you’re polling as much as 15 percent down amongst independents and have a ~45 percent approval rating.... Doesn’t happen.
This is going down 1980 style. I’m buying a ‘96 Dom for this one.
1. Obamacare 2. Keystone 3. Unemployment 4. Record gas prices 5. Euro crisis 6. Iran 7. Obama still at 50%....

My precious mother must have said that a million times when she was alive. She was right, too.
I hope you are right, but I don’t think your are. This is not 1980. Issues aren’t what matter. It’s Image. 0bama is the American Idol, hip hop President. When 0bama get’s out there with his swagger and starts fist bumping the crowds, Americans can not resist. I think 0bama has it in the bag.
“Remember, it`s an emotional bond, not policy agreement, that has to be broken between voters and 0bama.”
Agreed. But to date Romney’s approach that Obama is likeable enough but in over his head is just not cutting it. Romney needs to sharpen the attacks like he did in the primaries. He doesn’t need to get personal either. Just get stronger about mocking Obama’s horrible record. Throw the horrible results right back into Obama’s face - unemployment, declining work force, gas prices, deficit, debt, downgrade, Obamacare!! There is so much material - so much to remind people about the last 4 years!!
Why is he not using that stuff?
I have seen some homemade youtube videos with stronger messages than Romney’s. What’s the point of “carpet bombing” the swing states with TV ads if the ads are all touchy feely puff balls?
Obama has nothing “in the bag”.
He is weak on approval, he is dealing with economic numbers that he will literally have to overcome historical precedence to win.
Cut the defeatest crap and fight back.
“Romney wont......He like his aides that tell him likewise believe that they just need to run a prevent defense (run the clock out) and they will win. “
I have heard Pat Caddell on this. He thinks Romney’s aides are incompetent, positioning Romney on defense as Mr. Nice Guy and not getting aggressive enough. Romney needs to begin using Obama’s horrible record as a bludgeon and smash Obama over the head every chance he gets with debt, jobs numbers, gas prices, Keystone, Obamacare, downgrade, crappy GDP.
He’ll also lose over 10 points among Jews by my calculations.

Romney’s M.O. seems to be I’ll play Mr. Nice Guy and let the super packs unleash the hounds of hell.
FR is the home of wobbly types.
They are bored and look to polls to make them feel good about doing nothing but looking at polls.
Anybody know what the breakdown for R, D and I’s? Rassmmussen did do poll to find out voter id and he had +4 R.. Is he using it in these daily tracking polls?
He’s got a stockpile of Nazi gold in George Soros. Other than that, he only has his Commiewood donors to rely on, and they don’t have the same bucks our donors do. Have the oil companies put up? We could use some Exxon money, and Romney’s energy-friendly future is enough to justify a donation.
Scott Walker is a an effective conservative communicator with a record to offer as proof.
Romney is no Scott Walker.
The Bad News: Barack Obama, and his team, has plenty of practice time, before the actual debates happen.
