Backlash Poll : Obama Trails Romney 7 % [Drudge Headline]
Rasmussen Reports ^ | MAY 11, 2012 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 05/11/2012 7:19:59 AM PDT by RobinMasters

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney earning 50% of the vote and President Obama attracting 43% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another three percent (3%) are undecided.

Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

This is the first time Romney has reached the 50% level of support and is his largest lead ever over the president. It comes a week after a disappointing jobs report that raised new questions about the state of the economy. See tracking history.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of the economy. Forty-eight percent (48%) say he’s doing a poor job. Consumer confidence has slipped four points since last week’s government report on job creation and unemployment. The number who believe their personal finances are getting better slipped from 30% a week ago to 28% today. The number who fear their finances are getting worse increased from 43% before the jobs report to 47% today.

Romney or anyone else will stomp Obama. Obama is going to lose and lose so big that no amount of election fraud will help him.

The Gay Marriage issue should be promoted as part of a pattern that Obama can be bought.

I doubt if any of these geniuses can even spell "economy." I am certain that they could not offer a cogent rationale for giving him a good or excellent grade, other than "Obama is awesome."

Wait till the gay marriage endorsement factor kicks in. Remulak’s lead will grow to double digits.

Yeah, hmmm. Sucks big time for dear reader - but as San Fran Nan said(pp) : any election losses are worth it compared to the honor bestowed upon principled, no compromise rulers making such historic decisions.

And wouldn’t it be funny if it turned out the onerous Romney was not the nominee?

It’s important to note now who is on the “inevitability” bandwagon. Mostly people who have always been onerous Romney supporters.

Charge! Keep sending those emails, articles, etc about Obama to everyone you know. Our goal is to educate the populace about Obama. The more info the better. . Hopefully, everyone will 'get it' by November 6th. . The survival of our Sacred Republic depends on it.

I think that Romney is shooting himself in the foot on the gay marriage and gay adoption issues. Why in the world is the man in the Republican party?

What you say is very true as many of his supporters do not even have a rudimentary understanding about what economics is. I have a MBA and economics was one of my concentrations and I just rip into these people with Econ 101 and explain to them how Obozo’s policies fly in the face of sound economics. When I am done with they are flabbergasted as they are exposed as to how ignorant they are.

A republican needs a 10 point lead to overcome fraud.

I would like to see a 30 point lead over Obama in order to put the house and senate in full play. (iow the only issue is how much will democrats be deomolished)

The lead should be four times that. Obumbles is the WORST occupant of the Oval Office since Buchanan. And more divisive.

You are right about that. The takers among us immediately translate “Is Obama doing a good job on the economy?” to “Is Obama doing a good job for me, personally?”

TIME TO OUST THESE COMMUNIST FREAKS!!!!

I love this sentiment, and it needs to be our rally cry for the next six months. The last three years have been the most ridiculous exercise in our nations history of radical marxist policies domestically and dramatically weak foreign relations abroad. It is time to put these radicals out of power and clean up the mess. This regime didn't start it the leftward march, but they it took to extremes we never thought possible.

The MSM meme is to try and use this as a wedge issue to divide republicans into social vs ecconomic voters.

the msm is terrified of conservative meaning conservative on all fronts.

Also the MSM is terrified of the voters starting to focus on house and senate races. A veto proop majority would make a wimpy romney unnecessary on a marriage, dadt, or special fetish rights debate.

BINGO!!!

And DON’T forget those LOCAL RACES!!

The way to stick a steak in the heart of RINO Vampirism in the GOP is to TAKE OVER THE COUNTY AND STATE COMMITTEES! And THOSE positions are relatively ANONYMOUS and don’t take up the TIME and MONEY that regualr elected offices do. BUT THEY ARE VERY POWERFUL!!!!!

Obama’s support for gay marriage will cost him. Expect a lot of media lectures on what a bunch of Neanderthals the American public is for not agreeing with him.

“Also the MSM is terrified of the voters starting to focus on house and senate races.”

The Lame stream media IS trying it’s best to boost Ozippy, but they are losing this battle SOOOOO BIG time. Here in Wisconsin, after the FABULOUS turnout of 626,000 votes FOR Gov. Walker this week for a GOP primary that was pretty much meaningless, the papers all across the country ignored OUR turnout but touted the tremendous Dem turnout. WHAT??? Terrified about June 5 recall for Gov. Walker, are they? Their precious union thugs I hope and pray are going down. This is ground zero for the national union thug debate.

The MSM and the elite want to shut down FOX, turn off Talk Radio, Ditch the Internet, etc. on and on. WE the People are NOT stupid. MSM cannot stand this. haa haa.

Don’t you just love it? We will survive and yes, Mr. Lugar you DID lose, and you other RINOs are next. You Dems that have taken this country down the tubes, to you I say “You ain’t seen nothing yet!” We shall NOT stand down.

Good news Ping (for a change and hope!)..................

Backlash Poll : Obama Trails Romney 7 % [Drudge Headline]

The bad news could be that the 0b0z0id communists will go to plan "B," sooner than later. That's violence preceded by sluggish Internet, cell services and set pieces in the MSM to suggest, "Postponing the election indefinitely for the common good!"

See these possible headlines on Nov. 7.

Just watch -- The moment the Democrat Socialist Party leaders (Soros, et al.) come to the realization that Obama is going to lose -- and lose big --, that he will drag down the Senate (and House) with him, and that because of his position on same-sex "marriage" he has discouraged a significant portion of the base from voting at all, the Left will become desperate to find a way to replace him ... but by convention time it will likely be too late.

I’m just wondering.

Teabaggers are gay guys right? Øbama just endorsed them right before going to get money from them correct?

I thought the TB term was a perjorative used against TEA party people. So now it’s a good thing? Wow I’m confused.
