The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows President Obama attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.
When leaners are included, the candidates are tied at 48%. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question. Beginning October 1, Rasmussen Reports will be basing its daily updates solely upon the results including leaners

In fact, given that this has the traditional full weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) factored in and Obama is STILL below 50% despite the best efforts of the media, makes this very encouraging!
The one area where I’m particularly encouraged is support for each candidate. If 89% of Ds support O, and 85% or Rs support R, then there’s lots of room for improvement for Romney. He just has to seal the deal in the debates, and HIT HARDER!.
Obama has a one- or two-point lead in each of the Key Three States in this years election, Ohio, Florida and Virginia. The president is also up by three in Wisconsin, up two in Nevada and has a huge lead in Pennsylvania. Romney is now up two in Colorado and ahead by three in Iowa and New Hampshire. All these states with the exception of Pennsylvania remain Toss-Ups in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.
Not too bad overall. Also this, 43% certain to vote Romney and 41% certain to vote obama. 3% likely to vote romney but may change mind and 6% likely to vote obama but may change mind.
I am convinced it is not worth it, I am staying home in Nov
That’s okay, the rest of us will carry your burden for you. Just stay home and relax.
Mndude clicks “like”, LOL
This one may be an outlier. 2 other polls show it's a 1-2 point race.
I think ItalianQuaker was being ironic :)
Yeah. Not too bad for this point. I have a “gut feeling” (yes man your lifeboats....another “gut feeling” ahead :)) that even the Ras poll understates the Romney vote by 3-4% points.
Romney’s campaign had better get its head out of its ass
60% of the people want Obamacare REPEALED
GO WITH THAT ISSUE
I have not even heard it mentioned for weeks...
...torches and pitchforks to DC if they do not repeal this
Yeah, I am not convinced about this so called “enthusiasm gap” where only 85% of the Republicans are supporting Romney
While many of us are not in love with Romney, I will walk over broken glass to vote for Team RR than Clowngroup BO..
Obama’s Presidential Approval Index rating is slipping again, which is good news at this point in the campaign.
Yeah. That is what enthused me too!! -13!! Despite the MSM shilling for the Prezzie, we still have his negative numbers increasing. A few days ago he was at -9
I do agree that I would like Team RR to be MUCH more aggressive.
I hope October is the month where they throw every dollar they got (and “don’t got”.. as they say here in TX :))
Romney was very effective against Newt with his negative ads. I was quite mad at Romney then but now I want to “Newt-er” Obama
obama’s at 47%.
Why does that ring a bell?
Yup. We have every reason to be optimistic.
Conservative John Kass writes about how Obama should be down with his recent statement that he did not know the amount of the deficit, but Romneys statement that he has written off the 47 percent is what matters to the majority of voters.
Obamas pricey gaffe thats worth talking about -
September 23, 2012 - Under President Barack Obama, the national debt has ballooned past the $16 trillion mark a number once inconceivable and is growing by the second as the federal leviathan feeds on borrowed money.

There is a delicious irony in that number. While I want to Romney to win 55-45, I will enjoy a 53-47 win, just to validate the “47%”
I wish people would drop talking about PA. It hasn't been competitive since 1988.
