RCP Average is worthless since they include outliers that heavily skew the results
Rassmussen and Gallup are the two to keep an eye on. The others are mostly junk.
Yay. One America-hating, Israel-insulting Marxist beating another.
Averaging Gallup and Rasmussen still gives Obama +3
It’s still early, and the national poll is never the real issue. The issue is the state polls since electoral college votes determine the presidency.
Also, for the most part I prefer the likely voter polls to the registered voter polls, but this early in the campaign, there’s plenty of time for events to change registered into likely.
But, the bottom line for me is that the media has been bending over backward to make Romney look good, Obama is in a bad run with scandals all over the place, and he is still ahead to even.
It doesn’t look good for Romney
It is hard to believe that this is the guy the republicans have stuck themselves with
What do you suggest we do then?
It doesnt look good for Romney
That is inaccurate. It actually looks very promising for Romney....not a single one of those pools has the incumbent cracking 50%...not even the ones that have skewed samples.
If this were a conservative republican incumbent that I was really pulling for, I’d be worried.
America will fail just as surely under the slow drip of Socialism Lite as it will under the hangman’s noose of Marxism.
Thanks a bunch Mitt. You put personal ambition ahead of anything else and will screw us all one way or the other.
And one I have personally been told....”At least he’s going to overturn Obamacare.”
Actually, the only one of these (don’t know about this most recent one) that measures LIKELY voters has Romney ahead.
He is not my boy.
and spare me - you think Saint Rick or newt would be doing beter?
Yes or no?
Exactly... conservatives loudly warned against nominating Romney, but were ignored.
Romney has no chance; he never did. He knows it and the Repub elites know it.
Yes. I think Santorum would fare far better against Obama because he was an actual opposition candidate.
McCain stood a better chance against Romney even before picking Palin. Romney is going to lose and lose big.
Newt or Santorum or Perry were attacked so viciously by their own guy, Romney, that it’s impossible to say how they would be doing.
The lies told about the other candidates, and the misrepresentations and lies about himself, mean that Romney has stuck republicans in intramural warfare, suspicion, and ambivalence.
He has split his party, he has sapped it of drive, and the turnout numbers prove it.
In my short 40 years I’ve never seen the Republicans blow such a wonderful opportunity to contrast themselves against the radical anti-Semitic race baiting communist who is now the standard of the Democrat party. They blew it before it even started, all for Thomas Dewey II. (And I’m being rude to Dewey because he had twice the charisma of Romney.)
