Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Mitt Romney 48% of voters nationwide, Obama 45%

Quietman ~PWCM~JLA 2012/09/14 17:05:27

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 45% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.


The recent numbers may have been impacted by a number of factors. Clearly, one is the fading of the president’s convention bounce. Last week, Scott Rasmussen anticipated this fade by noting that the conventions would have no lasting impact on the race.

    The Libs will argue this, but it's been determined that most of the polls showing Obama ahead have been "rigged."

    Obama having been caught trying to change the Polls with Gallup, I believe that Obama is very far behind and the Liberal media, including FOX is projecting false numbers to the Public.

    I believe that far far more people believe that Obama is a total and complete Jack Wagon and that his Leadership has failed and It is a fact that there are a great number of People who voted for Obama in 2008 that have already said that they will not again.

    That being said, Seniors are hearing the message and they understand how Obama ripped off Funds from Medicare to use for ObamaCare and they will be in Great numbers voting for Romney as I will also.

    I DO NOT TRUST POLLS AT ALL but this I know.... OBAMA! YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED AS THE SCABS ON A DOGS......... you fill in what you think I was going to say!

    I think Rasmussen reports need to be updated.

    In the Detroit Free Press the following was reported today: "In the week after the political conventions ended, President Barack Obama has opened the most significant, sustained lead in the daily Gallup Poll since Mitt Romney emerged as the Republican nominee last spring. Disappointing unemployment statistics released last Friday haven't stemmed Obama's rise, and Romney's sharp criticism of the president in recent days during the crisis in Libya opened a new line of attacks against the GOP challenger.



    With 53 days and three presidential debates to go, strategists in both parties say there's time for Romney to recover lost ground. But even some Republican analysts warn that the former Massachusetts governor faces a political landscape that has become steeper as the campaign heads into the home stretch.



    The Gallup Poll showed Obama leading Romney 50%-44% Thursday among registered voters. A Fox News poll Wednesday also had Obama ahead, 48%-43% among likely voters."

    Here is data from other polling sources. Average them together and Obama is ahead by a large margin, especially in the toss-up states.

    I can agree with the oversampling issue but just not with 11 different polls and they seem to coincide quite closely at the moment. The Rasmussen poll was only one of the 11 that seemed to show a totally opposite result. I don't try to explain it, I just quickly glance at them in passing.

    polls don't mean SQUAT carter led Reagan by 20 points at this same point of the game and Reagan SPANKED him! polls had john kerry winning against Bush all the way up to election day, even exit polls had him leading. polls had a lot more democrats winning in 2010 and Republicans walked away with the house and gained many senate seats. the state I live in has not had a republican majority in the House or Senate in 150 years that is going to change in a couple months.
    Just like the 2010 mid terms Republicans are going to turn out in droves and vote this marxist liar n chief out of office...polls be damned

    The good news is Obama will continue to do nothing like always and his numbers should become even worse as more and more people are awakened to the total and complete failure he has been as President.

Cheating is a way of life with this president ( He won his very first election in Chicago by having ALL of his rivals DISQUALIFIED ! ) .

    Don't Shoot The Messenger: CU Study Predicts Romney Win
    by: nancycronk
    Wed Aug 22, 2012 at 22:15:45 PM MDT

    ( - promoted by Colorado Pols)

    A new University of Colorado study produced a model that would have correctly predicted every Presidential election since 1980, and it predicts that Willard "Mitt" Romney will be the 45th President of the United States. The study, done by Political Science Professors Michael Berry from CU Denver and Ken Bickers from CU Boulder, uses different indicators than most other models. Instead of looking at one measurement of economic health for each state, it looks at two -- per capita income, as well as that state's unemployment number. According to the model, every battleground state will go to Romney, including Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Colorado, making the grand total Romney 320 to Obama 218.

    The model also correctly predicted what happened

    I'm jealous. Over the years, my election predictions have proven no better than a coin-toss. Quantitative trader Reid Holloway, on the other hand, has called the actual electoral-vote outcome of three of the four past presidential elections. Roll over, Ty Cobb: If Holloway's 2012 prediction holds up, then he'll be batting .800.

    What's on Holloway's magic viewing screen? The trader, who operates quietly from Litchfield County, Conn., foresees an Obama victory, with 325 electoral votes for the incumbent versus 213 for GOP challenger Mitt Romney. Holloway doesn't relish the outcome; he favors Romney-style self reliance over Obama's Big Government. But Holloway's computer model tells him Obama's victory is all but inevitable.

    Holloway's election formula is based on one he developed to predict market volatility among the S&P 500's market segments. The market formula is a key tool for Holloway's proprietary trading firm, which is in the sub-$100 million size group. Each market segment has a mean volatility. When a segment's volatility mo...
