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).

She seems to use the same wonderful make-up artist that works on the Joker’s face.
Gloria is a real test for me, not wishing people a stroke or something similar. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone, but there are times when I come real close to it with this vile creature.
To me, she represents everything that is vile about the legal profession.
I believe Romney would fare better against Obama than Santorum, but it would be a close race.
I honestly would like a brokered convention to get a good candidate in there, but I don’t think 2 months is enough time for a new guy to get the support.
This is very promising. Hussein just invested enormous amounts of time over the last month stoking up his left wing base with his War against Christianity, all to no avail. He’s losing ground.
Leftists choose to vote for the real thing. Why vote for Obama lite, when you can have the real thing?
As for informed Conservatives, a vote for Romney is considered on a number of points to be a vote for Obama. Yyyyyuck!
Romney is not going to fare better against BO than any of the other two candidates. He will not get enough votes from liberals or conservatives. He is a king without a kingdom.
Funny how only the polls that are good for newtie have any meaning for you Newt supporters.
Newt can't win!
The people who like him will vote for him...sure, but those who don't like newt hate him. That's it. His like/dislike poll numbers are 39/61. He's the best known of all candidates, everyone knows him and have made up their minds about him. Those numbers won't change in any significant way because he IS so well known!
In a way I agree. I don’t think the GOP really has a chance against the true King O.
But we could make him a lame duck by taking the senate.
Boy that would be sweet.
“The people who like him will vote for him...sure, but those who don’t like newt hate him.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
For good reason. Newt could be President of FR...perhaps...but never POTUS!
Oh really? So now Rassmussen is a mittbot too? Geez...you people are just too much!
Well. Make the case for your guy.
If folks would put their emotions aside and really look at the situation as it is they’d realize that Newt is just splitting the conbseravtive vote...to no useful purpose. If he’d drop out and endorse Santorum we’d have a chance of beating Romney with a guy who could conceivably win in November. If mitt wins in AL and MS it’s just about a done deal....we’re stuck with mitt and another 4 years of obama.
Who ever it is, after the Convention its War on the socialist scumbag that is Obama! War for the virtues of our republic, for the basic rights of self-determination of every individual American.
A war we ultimately can never afford to lose, less there could be a hundred years before the socialist empires own structural weaknesses weaken it enough to allow freedom to once again rice from the Ashes and challenge that evil socialist empire for domination in a new American revolution.
I will not claim that it will be decided in this election for such a thing as freedom cannot be given up even after the most crushing of defeats. Freedom is instead sustained by our relentless efforts to liberate ourselves and our countrymen from totalitarian yoke of Big Government! It is that struggle to find & exploit weaknesses and bring down that government that sadly must go on without end. For the forces of evil driven by the power greed of politicians will never stop seeking to usurp our rights.
We must be as clever & dynamic as them our defense, we must never fail to point out their failings and the evils of big centerlized government. We must constantly seek weaken them by any means we can. Including but not limited to playing them against each other as to keep them both took weak & depended upon we the individual vote(both with ballot, wallet, and feet) to overpower us.
Never forget the heart of a republic is found not in its institution or name but in its sole propose of preserving the freedom of its people.
Santorum should drop out and endorse Newt. He is the best conservative in the race... and Newt has more delegates.
The Regime’s own in house polling is actually much worse. What we’ll never know is how much Newt, or Rick are leading by after this week. I’d bet ‘my farm’ that Newt’s way ahead. Rick’s only lagging because of lack of public knowledge and brand name. The Regime’s doing as much as they can to put Romney in place as the Pubbie Nominee
That's not the point - Drudge is doing BO's work by pushing Mitt.
The 'black women' of the 0bama regime
"ANYBODY BUT 0BAMA" carries MUCH weight when you consider all of the radical-progressive-socialists and Marxists that will be exiting along WITH him.
A general election poll at this point is useless. It would be more meaningful after the nominee has been decided and both candidates start campaigning against each other. So I don’t know where Rasmussen stands, but this is just BS before Alabama and Miss. I expect more of this cr@p between now and Tuesday.
