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).

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?

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.

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."

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
