Trust on Issues:
Obama v. Romney

Rasmussen Reports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 9/28/2012 4:25:33 PM

Mitt Romney continues to hold a seven-point lead in voter trust over President Obama when it comes to the economy, by far the number one voting issue. The candidates remain more closely divided in several other key issue areas, but voters are shifting toward Romney when it comes to national security. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters trust Romney more when it comes to handling the economy. Forty-four percent (44%) trust the president more. (Snip) This survey of 1,000 Likely Voters nationwide was conducted on September 25-26, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The

Comments:
Isn't that the magic threshold of over 50%? If more people trust Romney on the economy and the economy remains the No.1 issue and especially if the EU or something else flares up to affect oil, the markets and costs.............? Distraction, distraction......squirrel. It's the 0bama campaign.

44%, that would include the free obama phone recipients, most of the food stamp crowd, the 99ers, the SEIU, al qaeda and the American Communist Party.

I trust Rasmussen more than any other polling group and if they're reporting a seven point lead for Romney concerning trust about the Economy then Obama is in deep dirt regardless what the other polls are saying.

Agree with #s 3 & 4. Time has come to seriously doubt the intentions and/or judgement of anyone who trusts this perverse and grotesque caricature of a US President on anything under the sun.

I have been polled by Rasmussen, but didn't know it until later when the results were announced. They were thorough, professional and objective. Trust them.

I would love to see a post-election RE-POLLING of the same people Rasmussen polled to ask them who they actually voted for, and if different from what they said in the poll, why.

There is such a massive disconnect between the key question (For whom would you vote?) and most of the internals that there has to be some significant reason. The first pollster to identify this reason will be doing a major service not just for his profession but also to his country.

There are a couple of terms Romney should consider for the debates... nonsensical gibberish and organic fertilizer.

They could be used to goad Obama into losing his cool with ridicule and at the same time force the media to dwell on what Obama said preceeding such a comment.

I am so down on the people of this country. I feel there are so many people out there that are either stupid or with their head in the sand. I am scared to death that Obama will be elected again and 6 months after that, everyone will be saying, "why did I vote for that guy" because they are not listening to what is going on -- that he is DETERMINED to ruin this country and absolutly takes pleasure in all the bad things he is doing to this coutry because he thinks we deserve it.

I think it would be a HUGE mistake to assume anything about anything and wish to God Romney would take some of the advice (Ron Johnson this a.m. ON KUDLOW FOR EXAMPLE, AS WELL AS Larry himself) being given re: bringing his platform down to the level that the average guy can understand, or even the above average........what will this mean to US and our kids and grandkids? We won't win if this is simply a vote against Obama----we have to have a vote FOR Romney as turnaround artist and someone who UNDERSTANDS what the middle class is facing..

If (when?) Obama wins again he is such a narcissist he will determine that the country loves that he has ruined us and that we want more! Now that I think about it--he will be right. It is hard to believe this country has come to this--folks who pay no attention and spout the ideas floating on the silliness of The View (is there any more insipid bunch of harpies?) or the movie stars with their high school education on PEOPLE mag having more and more babies?!

I dunno. The truth must be brought out. For example, Obama's running all over Ohio bragging about the wonders of his auto bailout. But on FoxNews' WSJ Report today, Ohio Gov Kasich said that although Ohio jobs are up over a 100,000, the auto sector accounts only for about 500. That's right, 500. Ford and GM are down, he says, but Chrylser is up, all tolled 500 jobs from autos. Somebody needs to tell Obama in no uncertain terms to stop misrepresenting this. I know, like that is going to happen. Obama is never encumbered by the truth.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
