Skip to comments.SHOCK POLL: ROMNEY 48% OBAMA 43% [Drudge Headline]
Posted on 03/10/2012 11:17:08 AM PST by RobinMasters
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19 (see trends).
Looking at Tuesday's upcoming primaries, the GOP race in Alabama is essentially a three-way tie, while Mitt Romney leads by eight in Mississippi. Nationally, Romney now leads Rick Santorum by 12 points. Regardless of who they want to win, 80% of Republican Primary Voters nationwide believe Romney will be the party's nominee.
With the perception growing that he will be the GOP nominee, Romney leads President Obama by five points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. Today's numbers show Romney at 48%, Obama at 43%. Thats Romneys largest lead since December. Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

Loving it... Break out the chanpaign...and then get back to work
Looks like we’re going to have a minority President.
That is before the October Surprise. Obama has multiple lines of attack ready for Romney, and it will make what Romney did to Santorum and Gingrich look like child’s play. And unlike those two, Romney will not effectively fight back as his hands will be hamstrung by the GOP-E.
These hypothetical head-to-head matches are so absurdly meaningless when we’re still 8 months out from the election and no candidate has faced the Obama machine yet.
I’m hoping for a minority EX-president.
This poll is fire unadulterated Bull Sh***e!!!!!
It is a push poll to get people voting for Mitt as the primaries come to a close.
Don’t be fooled. Team Obama wants Mitt for an opponent so they can say “Really? Why is Mitt even necessary? His policies and positions are the same as Obama’s”.
They do not want to go head to head with Newton or even Rick.
Bishop Willard will blow up and burn like the Hindenburg when he starts taking fire. Bishop Willard’s freakishness rivals Lightworker Hussein’s.
That is if he can actually get enough conservatives to go out and vote for him. His scorched earth tactics combined with his liberalism means he is going to lose after the dems and the media are done with him.
The reason is that Romney is a huge favorite to win the nomination. The next logical step is to have him compete against Obama.
I don’t trust Drudge, Rasmussen or any of the other players who were the usual regulars on the conservative side.
They didn’t even bother with Gingrich.
These polls are really getting tiresome. One minute you see a poll where Obama’s approval ratings are over 50% then he’s down. One minute he’s up against all his potential Republican rivals, then he’s down.
We’ve ALL faced the Obama machine for quite some time now.
