Daily Presidential Tracking
Poll for October 1

Rasmussen Reports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:andyboy, 10/1/2012 10:19:53 AM

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows President Obama attracting support from 50% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

Comments:
This is sobering news because, when "leaners" are included, Obama has now hit the magic 50% level. More bad news -- Obama leads 51% to 45% in the swing states. Still more bad news -- Rasmussen says the numbers are not likely to change much the rest of the way, even with the debates (although he does note that even a small change could prove decisive).

So Obambi's foreign policy blows up in his face like a Vaudeville cigar and the economy is slowing to near depression and folks want more Obambi? Honestly, what positive news ahs this loser had since his election night 4 years ago?

A quote from an article (translated into English) from the Prager Zeitung, a publication in the Czech Republic, dated 18 April 2011.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of Idiots such as those who made him their president.”

Naturally Drudge ignores this poll and cherry- picks polls that have it closer.

If obama should by some terrible luck be re-elected pres., I would have to question whether this country is still the greatest in the world.The fact that millions of babies are murdered every year legally in the U.S.now raises that question also.You can be sure God is watching and will act some day.

50% for Obama + 47% for Romney + 2% other + 2% undecided = 51% of the voters

If this is indeed accurate, then it's like a mass suicide pact. More accurately, perhaps, it's an assisted suicide. Assisted by the Marxists who have been feverishly infesting every single institution in our country - schools, churches, media, entertainment, government. We're being conquered from within.

Where the heck is the resistance?

50 + 47 + 2 + 2 = 101? I'm starting to wonder if math is a required subject for pollsters

Stop. The popular vote does not determine the winner. That's why there's an electoral college.

Having said that, the polls are bogus to determine outcome, they're snapshots in time, not an ending tally. Don't believe your lying eyes with the oh so honest media shoveling these numbers at you.

Romney/Ryan in a landslide.

I also do not understand how Obama has managed to reach 50%. The economy is in shambles as is his feckless foreign policy. Could it be because this is a weekend poll? But even so, how does he manage to stay so close?

Educational system, media, Hollywood, unions - all pushing a liberal agenda that far too many have bought into (or should I say sold their votes for?) 40+ years of a growing underclass of people, all too willing to take a government handout rather than work has gotten us to the tipping point as a nation. These people brag about how much they get from "Obama" rather than be ashamed of it. They don't care about anything happening in the Middle East, Russia, the economy or the doctors' offices. They don't care if they are being lied to and bought off. A girl in my 7th grader's class last Friday said her momma doesn't have to work because Obama gives them money for everything. This is the mentality that gives the liberals power and they have been far too successful in promoting it. We have lost America and the American spirit. Sad days are ahead.

Any comparisons to election in 1980 are not valid. This is a much different country than it was 32 years ago. Since 1980 the USA has been overrun with mass, uncontrolled illegal alien invaders who overloaded our systems with millions of functionally illiterate, net tax recipients who vote 95 percent democrat.

#4, Drudge would not be cherry picking polls if the mainstream media would focus on real issues like the coverup in Libya, rather than how badly Romney is doing in the polls. Keep it up, Drudge!

The only poll that counts is Nov 6...as always this is within the 3-5% error rate and as ALWAYS depends on the enthusiasm of the voters...in other words if we took a poll in Dec 1776 on whether or not Washington would be alive in 1777 it would have been 90%-10% saying he would be dead

#13 makes the most salient point. This has been in the works for decades. The media take over, educational system infiltration, mass importing of poverty in the form of illegals, and the growth of government dependence including union employees has gotten us here.

The proper response is for all producers in this nation to go on general strike, a la Atlas Shrugged, to hasten the collapse. But we won't and we'll degenerate into a socialist hell for 50 more years, a la Europe.

Polling by electoral vote population may yield different results than this one. Having a 10 point lead in a blue state does not help a red state voting demographic. The press may be suppressing the Obama vote by reporting that it's over. We will see......

There are approximating 218 Million people who are eligible to vote in the US.

The pollsters are sampling 1500 of them (.000688%, 6.88ppm) over the phone and telling us that is how it is.....

"Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence."

Ben Carson: White House wanted
apology for ‘offending’ Obama

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
