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

Unfortunately, not any more. Today's Ras poll only 52% do (vs. 41 that don't). It shows the incredible power of the corrupt media. The right-wrong direction is also drifting in his way. Just wait till the media pushes all of the "economy is getting better" stories, full-throttle.
R&R have an uphill battle. The media is brazen, corrupt, beyond-biased, and disgraceful. R&R have to do what Reagan did, talk above the media and straight to the people.
You haven’t been paying attention. He even mentioned it in his 60 Minutes interview last night.
I know a lot of Freepers get frustrated talking about PA as they think it is “Fools Gold”
However, there is nothing inherently impossible about turning PA to our side. The demographics are not impossible. PA in many ways is like TX in the 1980s. Lots of “yellow dog democrats”
We may not turn PA this cycle but keep in mind PA is NOT like CA. In fact I think even MI has potential
Look at what has happened in WI, formerly one of the most liberal states in the midwest
www.unskewedpolls.com has Romney up 7.8%
Just as Obama wants. Nice.
Yeah. I have been following that site quite closely. Ultimately it comes down to turnout. Will we be R+2, R=D, D+2 or D+7 (as the media is taking for granted).
If we are at R+2, R+0, D+2, we will win hands down (300+ EVs)
If we are at D+7, then it will come down to a few states (OH, FL, VA, IA, WI, NH, NV, CO)
However, this actually encourges me that even with a D+7 model, Team RR has a fighting chance to win!!
Are they using an even R-to-D turnout model?
85% of Democrats think the economy is getting better
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this takes all polls and re-works them to use Ras' party identification (R+4), and re-applies the stats.
I realize that all of the polls are off, but I'd be cautious in assuming everyone else is wrong and Ras is right. My guess is D+2.
Back in '00, I would watch all of the polls closely, and even though all polls showed an even election, or Gore was slightly ahead, Ras (portraitofamerica.com) had Bush winning by 8!.. He had egg on his face, and shut down that site
I know he's gotten much better, and is one of the most reliable pollsters out there... but if he says it's even, don't know how anyone can think Romney is up this much
LOl read my hundreds of previous posts and you will know I was being sarcastic
I guess sarcasm is not too obvious anymore lol
It’s the debates, stupid.
Hussein better take some anger management classes. He hates to be challenged with simple facts, and it shows in a very large way on that kisser of his. Mitt hits him with a few early jabs and it’s sayonara Zer0.
Still, Ras isn't perfect in his samples, and he is (I think) undercounting indies right now. The Ohio-based poll over the weekend had a 5% Obama lead using a 6% Demo oversample with only 10% indies. That doesn't seem right.
AT THE SAME TIME RAS'S OWN PARTY PREFERENCE POLL SHOWS REPUBLICANS AT A 21ST CENTURY HIGH AT 37.5%!!?
But Obama is below 50%.
What a sick stat. Proves Rush's point. Obama caters to the morons... The easily swayed.
Sorry about that. My sarcasm detector was evidently on the fritz this morning.
quite right, quite right
Maybe Raz is also watching his back and beong PC, the point about unskewedpolls.com is that this is another view with a more realistic party ID. There are too many contradictions that assumes O is winning or tied. For example, Raz did a poll where 60% do not trust the media. If that is true, then that could imply that 60% is looking for alternative news and not buying the media sludge and it may not be as close. there are too many facts implying a possible landslide for Romney.
PA certainly went Republican in 2010.
Yup. We have every reason to be optimistic.
