The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows the race tied, with President Obama and Mitt Romney each attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are still undecided. See daily tracking history.
Forty-six percent (46%) are certain they will vote for Romney, while 45% are sure they will vote for the president.
For most of the year, Rasmussen Reports has conducted 500 survey interviews per night and reported the results on a three-day rolling average basis. For the final week of the campaign, we are conducting 1,000 survey interviews per night.

Sitting in no power, no gas, NJ right now. Sandy + 6 and we have had an Obama photo op and praise for said photo op from Gov Tub. We have had nothing else. People who were good natured and affable are now mad as hell. They are openly wondering what the truck President photo op was talking about when he said that we would get whatever we need. As te anger increases, look for a fade for President photo op.
(Raise you a toast in anticipation of the Governor’s victory on TUE)
They get an A- and 97 percent accuracy for polls. This must be the 3 percent inaccurate...lol. Of course, all polls that do not go our way is considered suspect...lol.
You are going to stew in your anger but the media won’t cover it. Christie could redeem himself now (somewhat) by asking Obama very publicly what happened to all the help that was promised.
Strong majority still wants to repeal obamacare. People must be schizoid.
This! Christie better get to it. It would only be the truth anyway.
No, he wouldn't skew. He uses a special sauce.
C'mon. You're still bitter that Mitt Romney is our nominee, and so you post doom on poll threads to depress other FReepers? Would it actually make you feel better to see Obama win?
Calm down, Freepers. Take a Xanax, and stop looking at polls. Keep in mind:
1. They told us the Wisconsin Recall was TOO CLOSE TO CALL on the day of that election.
2. We were told Kerry had a lead in OH of 5 points days before the 2004 election. Bush won OH.
3. Not one single pollster predicted the republican TIDAL WAVE of 2010. Not a single one.
4. Romney/Ryan are filling up HUGE stadiums and Zero’s people are having to change to smaller venues so there can’t be photos of massive empty seats.
5. Ask yourself this: Forget about R or D. Suppose Candidate A is an incumbent president who can’t get to 50% in the polls. The people who enthusiastically turned out for him before are going to either switch sides or stay home in significant numbers (youth vote, women, Jews, Catholics). Candidate A cannot run on his disastrous record, and so the entire campaign strategy has been to depict his opponent as an evil person and accuse him of being a lying murderer. The crowds at events for Candidate A look dejected and desperate. Even though the press is trying fervently to cover for Candidate A, the public saw with their own eyes and ears how Candidate A blamed a video for a terrorist attack and the public knows that to be a blatant lie.
Candidate B had the entire lame-stream press against him, yet he handily won the first debate and people saw that he is not the person demonized by his opponent. Candidate B has run an upbeat campaign and has talked about the issues. Candidate B has a business record to run on. Candidate B has been at 50% to 51% in the polls (with a minor blip due to slobbering hurricane press coverage of Candidate A). Candidate B has won back the women’s vote from what it was at the last election. The independents are favoring Candidate B. The enthusiasm for Candidate B is at record levels.
So, forgetting R or D, with three days left to go, which campaign would you want to be a part of?
Just thought about that a few minutes ago. If Christie is smart, come out blasting FEMA. In fact, I am giving it a 50/50 chance that he does.
I was prepared so I am really not angry . You miss my point. It is the victim class that is angry. The media is addicted to reporting on the victim class and will do so this time. In addition, the media’s rule is that “if it bleeds it leads” and it is starting to bleed (metaphorically speaking). I have already seen it being reported on the local news.
According to what is on his site the final number will be released on Monday but ONLY after careful examination of the results to determine their validity as it applies to the standards of the Gallup Organization.
The MSM are acting as if Mitt Romney does not exist.
Obama won’t have positive headlines on drive time radio this Monday and Tuesday as he did last week. AP may be able to bury how bad things are on Staten Island, but they won’t be able to manufacture “Savior of the World” headlines.
BTW, I would add that the early numbers from Ohio are looking very good for Romney. :)
OTOH, Barone made a manly predition.
Re: It will all come down to turnout
Re: I cant see anyone being swayed at this late hour.
We just may not see that sway until the final results of the election.
KEEP WORKING like we are 10 POINTS DOWN!!!!
NBA Commissioner David Stern referred to it as “Katrina”.
I think the key thing is that these are randon samples, there is a margin of error, even in the internals, and the small fluctuations in the internals are simply random. It’s going to be close.
