Rasmussen: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (Romney +5)
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 7/27/2012 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 07/27/2012 8:30:08 AM PDT by Palmetto Patriot

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting 49% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The numbers are similar to the 49% to 43% advantage Romney enjoys on the question of who is trusted more to handle the economy.

"Romney’s five-point advantage is the largest enjoyed by either candidate in just over a month. As with any such change in the race, it remains to be seen whether it marks a lasting shift or is merely statistical noise."

Boy isn’t that the truth. Romney is such a poor candidate that we have to worry about winning an easy election. Stupid GOPe and FREEPERS who support this fraud and cheerleading for Romney is disgusting.

I’m sorry but some of you are so full of crap that it’s entertaining. Yeah, we’d have a 25 point lead with Newt! Not.

Romney is in the lead. Obama sucks. We live in a country where a radical traitor, John Fing Kerry, had a credible showing against a then popular war time president in GWB.

A 5 point lead at this point is great and again, Thank God for it.

He sure is not the candidate we would have wanted but although it is easy to find fault with him personally it is equally difficult to find fault (so far) with the campaign he is running.

I have followed politics for about 40 years and his response team, ads production not to mention fund rsising is as good as any I’ve seen.

Obama’s “You didn’t build that” was the tipping point.

If this keeps up (and I hope it does), I can't imagine how ugly the Obama campaign is going to get.

Romney has been surprisingly good in responding quickly to negative attacks and has handled the campaign well, (except the unforced error about the Olympics) but I don't think we've seen anything yet! Get the popcorn!

BTW, Rasmussen has the best pooling data. Some of the garbage polls to make Obama look good are finally getting called out. Earlier in the week (WSJ/ NBCS?) was so lopsided in its sampling, even Chuck Todd, the political correspondent for NBC admitted it wasn't a good poll. Then why publish it???

Obama has a MAX popular vote total of 42-43%... and that’s if everything goes perfect for him, and that’s hardly the case.

His “You didn’t build that” and “It Worked” comments have shown unequivacably, that this guys a communist in his core beliefs and unamerican to those who were giving him benefit of doubt.

I am sure there will be some fluctuation up and down as the race goes one, but Obama cannot win this election. Fight like we’re losing, but the electorate made up there minds on this guy a long time ago, he just never got the memo. That and his attempts to attack his opponent just show how out of touch he is, they harm him more than Romney because they show exactly who he is and what he believes, and its not things the overwhelming majority of americans believe.

Obama I think honestly will be lucky to get 40% on election day.

You're probably right. But the good part is, from what I've seen so far, Romney is not going to sit back and grovel as did John ""We have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency" McCain.

Yes, coupled with the Catholic and Christian vote being energized by the attacks on Chick-fil-A, the Boy Scouts, the radical disregard for people of faith in Obamacare, and what he's doing to the military.

Obama has spent $100 million this year and managed to get his job approval numbers up from low 40s to high 40s. He can’t sustain anything above 50 and hasn’t been able to do so for three years. Not a good sign. Economy will get worse, not better, as we approach the election. Not a good sign. Obama is now being openly criticized by the Left. Not a good sign. He has come off his tight script and is making gaffes. Not a good sign.

Watch the trends, not the numbers of the day. Romney is trending up and Obama is trending down. The election will be close, but there is reason to be somewhat optimistic.

I believe you are right. These dog days of summer usually favor democrats as most Republicans are on vacation until Labor day. But results matter, and when Obama had his own “malaise” moment it just amplified the bad economy he is responsible for.

Not BS, but true. Obama is despised.

BUT Mr. ROMNEYCARE WAS CAREFULLY SELECTED
by the DNC, and the MSM.

WHY?

Because:
Romney RESPRESENTS EVERYTHING

1) Americans hate
a) vulture corporatism
b) Wall St (not me, not here, but generally, this year)
c) RomneyCARE
d) anticonservatism in every way imaginable.
e - z) fill in as exercise

and 2) everything that makes the GOP moot.

a) RomneyCARE CREATOR
b) love for TAXES and TARP
c) love for RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE/DEATHPANELS
d) Global Warming Hoax addiction
e) Mexican ineligibility (Romney STILL protects his Obama)
f - z) fill in as exercise

Romney is ahead and the get Obama elected folks on this site are getting desperate. They have their marching orders, to get as many as possible GOP voters not to vote for Romney thus, making Obama a two term president. Obama will destroy America as we know it. Some people want that to happen.

Do you have any better ideas for right now? Romney is running one of the best campaigns I’ve seen in years. Like him personally or not, he is in it to win it — unlike the McCain campaign.

Carter had already lost the election in ‘79.

Anyone could have beaten him without trying. His Iran and military policies made him unelectable.

Indeed - Romney sure wasn't my first choice. And we DO indeed have to worry about winning.

Stupid GOPe and FREEPERS who support this fraud and cheerleading for Romney is disgusting.

Whaaaa? You just said we have to worry about winning this election. Wouldn't supporting the nominee help him win it? Or do you want 0bama?

You're an idiot when you talk like this.

I’m as encouraged by Obama’s low number as much as by Romney’s lead. I’ve bought into this conventional wisdom that as an incumbent even if they were tied, Obama can’t be down in the low 40’s and expect a majority to vote for him come election day.

Obama needs to demonize Romney and I’m not so sure that’s easy to do. When I think of challengers who got ridiculed in the past, It was based on their policy gaffes or painting them as radicals. I don’t think tax returns or outsourcing some jobs are sufficient attacks.

I’m thinking of Dukakis, he was such a liberal that his attempts to sound conservative just backfired. Or McGovern was just too left wing and then he proposed giving every American $1,000. Kerry was running against a popular incumbent and had the same liberal tag. That tag works against democrats, it can’t really be an argument against a republican challenger even if you believe Romney is that liberal.

The bottom line Obama is unpopular, it’s a referendum on Obama, and unless he becomes more popular or Romney really screws up, Obama won’t convince a majority that he needs to be reelected.

Good God, to me the idea that Obama needs to be reelected is so preposterous,

First of all. Just because I am going to vote for the jerk doesn't mean I am going to support him or cheerlead for him. Obama is the weakest incumbent we have ever had and this jacka$$ Romney is going to have to fight to even possibly win. Had the guy had any principles at all during his governorship and after, he would be able to go on vacation for months and still win the election. No but because of your ilk, we have to brace for the possibility that he may very well lose. And you call me an idiot? Please wake the heck up. We were dished a dud.

Why because of me? I sure as heck didn't vote for him! But since he is the nominee I will vote for him in the general and ask others to do the same.

And you call me an idiot?

Nope. I said when you talk like that you're an idiot. But it is idiotic behavior to moan about how our candidate may lose and in the very same breath talk about you hoping he loses.

You and a few others do this. Try to turn people away from our nominee - why I don't know. Something stupid to hope for an 0bama win for sure. Another so called reason to tear down our nominee is to supposedly remove any mandate? Yeah whatever - as stupid as that is, in the next post they'll worry about our nominee losing.

Please wake the heck up.

Uhhh, I think it's you who should wake up - only a sleeping dunderhead would hope for an 0bama win.

We were dished a dud.

Well frickin' DUH! So you prefer Satan himself? Yep, that's stupid.

I use the Adblock Plus add-on with Firefox. That lets me block all the endlessly posted and reposted spam images so I never have to see them. Right now, I have about 80 spam images blocked. I add several more every day.

It’s a bit more work than scrolling, but it’s much more satisfying!
