Rasumussen: Sunday 09/30: O:48%: R:46%: Leaners: O:49%: R:47%: Obama -14
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 09/30/2012 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 09/30/2012 7:25:18 AM PDT by SoftwareEngineer

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows President Obama attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.

Four years ago today, Rasmussen Reports tracking showed Obama leading John McCain by a 51% to 45% margin. The numbers barely budged for the rest of the campaign season as Obama enjoyed a comfortable lead and stayed between 50% and 52% every day for the last 40 days.

When “leaners” are included, it’s now Obama 49%, Romney 47%.

Just wait until after the debates, during which Romney will be channeling Bob Dole.

What is odd is the only a couple of weeks ago on days that Obama was running at -14 he was polling at 43% - 45%.

A few weeks ago I thought Romney would win in a landslide...and he should. But he’s run a poor campaign. Probably the worst since Dewey in ‘48; another guy who thought that the economy was so bad all he had to do was show up to win.

Clearly that’s not working. He’s got the debates though. Something Dewey never had.

Attack. Attack. and attack again. Does Mitt have the gonads to call out Obama and his media on the facts? If he does he can win, if not he’s a sure loser.

The MSM is going to castigate him no matter what he says...so he might as well tell the truth. Including Obama getting to colleges as a foreign student. Phony IDs including a social security number that’s been recycled.

Tell the truth Mitt and you win.

RAS is starting to look like the rest of the skewed polls.
I think he’s scared to show Romney leading. Once in a blue moon he does just so the media does not rip into him and accuse him of being in the tank for Romney. This race will be about enthusiasm and the republicans have it and the demoncrats don’t. End of story.

Candidates have to report their contributions quarterly. Sept 30 is
a quarter deadline.

IF you donate TODAY, it will show up in the report in a few weeks. ANd it’s the last report before election day.

The media is going to seize on the fact Obama raised XX dollars,
and Romney XX. candidate XX versus XXX.

That’s why if you are going to donate to Todd Akin, you should do it
TODAY so it shows up on the report.

ALso, Romney, whoever you want to win.

The media want to demoralize us. Therefore it is the utmost
importance for conservatives give the rest we were going to
give TODAY.

Thanks.

Consider a small donation today online, especially for Senate to go REpub

That's because Mitt had absolute contempt for conservatives and conservatism to fuel his passion. Now that he's running against one of his own? Not so much.

I was shocked to see that Rassmussen himself spoke about the expected 2-4 pt democratic edge in this years presidential voting. The logical question to ask is, why would any self respecting conservative pollster make such a statement?

Now I know that Rasmussen is a private citizen, and his company is a private company. His company’s financial information will never be released, and there are no laws requiring that the information should be released.

But have you ever wondered how much would it take to buy a pollster? Would $10 million be enough? How about 50 or 100?

Now of course I’m not saying this has happened to Rasmussen, but I will say this. We all know that corruption exists in this country today. We also know with certainty there have been documented cases where judges, journalists, politicians, and yes even pollsters were not immune.

Following politics everyday is too much. Rush used say we should avoid watching the evening news. Skip the Sunday news shows, he would watch them, tell uswhat happened and as an added bonus tell us what to think :)
Might be time to let up on the political junk food.

The media’s effort at demoralizing certainly hasn’t affected me one single bit. I’d already been demoralized ever since it became clear that Romney was going to be the nominee.

I don`t know if it`s the effectiveness of Romney`s campaign or not, because the word is indeed out about how miserably inept and evil this regime is, but it`s looking more like America is resigning itself to be a weak, fading shadow of its former self. What it`s going to become is an uglier, crime-ridden version of Greece.

If they don't, and you don't help - then you will be just as responsible for the next 4 years under 0bama.

Romney is the nominee, let's move on. You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

Well this could be weekend (Sat) stuff gumming up the works again. I don’t think you’ll see these numbers from Ras by mid week. Regardless not worth fretting over. Obama is NOT pulling away. His lies on Fast and furious and Libya are gonna haunt him and Romney is setting up for the kill. Patience is a virtue

Romney could be shouting from the top of the Empire State building and it wouldn’t make any difference. He has virtually the entire MSM against him, so that all you get is either nothing at all, because they don’t give any of his rallies, speeches, etc. any airtime, or you get constant bad mouthing of his campaign saying how he is about to lose big time. I don’t know how Romney can fight that. Until we somehow can change the media and/or get more conservative stations on the air, the same thing will happen over and over and over because the media are all Libs/Dems.

All we have is talk radio; we don’t even have a part of Fox anymore as they too are in the tank for Obama, and the few Pub pundits on there are northeast elitists pounding the sh*t out of Mitt everyday also. I don’t see how Romney can break through. You just can’t have everyone badmouthing you, including your own side, and win.

It will take the will of the people going to the polls to rectify this situation, and we had just better hope the demographics haven’t swung so far as to make any further Republican presidential wins possible in the foreseeable future no matter who the candidate is. It may be too late already. This election will let us know. Keep your fingers crossed. It’s up to us now.

There is a plethora of material that can be used against Obama, yet Romney is choosing not to use it. He consistently uses the same tired economic speeches, that obviously aren’t working. We have had twelve recent embassies attacked by terrorists, the murder of an ambassador, and we lost many at Ft. Hood in another terrorist attack. Obama has openly attacked the constitution, has relied on people like Van Jones as a czar, has promoted class warfare, and the list goes on. Romney can’t find anything else to talk about?

It’s starting to look like Barry has locked up the Obamaphone vote. Free stuff trumps freedom these days in this country. Bigtime. Romney was right about the 47 percenters. Soccer moms and NASCAR dads are out. This looks like it’s going to be the year of the Obamaphone voter.

It’s gotta be something else though. My gut tells me it’s something with the international bankers and globalists. Not to get too conspiratorial but was he spooked somehow? You can say all you want about Romney. He’s not all that conservative, he’s pliable, etc. But he is smart, very capable and he has enough money to get the best people and data available. A capable person who really want to be president would not run this campaign. My only conclusion leads me to believe he has been spooked and is throwing the election. Unless his entire strategy becomes apparent in the next week or so.

Why is everyone so surprised? Romney is running a shit campaign. I see Obama and Clinton ads every half hour. On cooking shows, on sports shows, on news shows. EVERYWHERE. I haven’t seen a Romney ad in days. And would it matter if I did? All he talks about is the stupid debt, which NO ONE cares about. He will not go after Obama, because his advisers tell him “but the NYT and Politico might call you a racist!!!” If this doesn’t change within 1 week he is toast.

I think Romney is simply a bland personality. Obamas campaign has effectively turned Romney’s own economic message against him, in that he only cares about the wealthy, it is working. Anyone who listened to the primary debates had to know it was coming, except for Romney who was let off the hook time and again by the republican pundits. Unfortunately, the democrats have exploited every aspect of Mitt’s financial world, something that was hands off in the primaries. We will see how “the only guy who can beat Obama” message works out for us.

I’m sorry, but I DON’T believe these numbers. Think about it. It’s simply not possible for Hussein to win with as big a vote as 2008. There’s massive buyer’s remorse out there, massive unemployment, massive gas price increases, massive tax increases on the horizon, massive healthcare cost increases (and even bigger ones looming), massive healthcare disruptions, massive attacks on businesses, massive youth unemployment, massive antisemitism, refusal to build the XL pipeline, ad. nauseum. And all of the folks affected by these things are going to merrily trot to the polls and joyfully pull the lever to vote for four more years of this? Right.

And we’re supposed to believe that Hussein will win with the same margin? I’m not buying it. Personally, I think Hussein is going to be blown out of the water. People are either ducking the polls (like me), or they are lying (like some friends of mine do).

Exactly! That is why he’s losing. Can you imagine if he went after what Obama has done on immigration? They are so scared of losing the hispanic vote, but don’t realize that this issue galvanizes 70% of the American public.
