Fizzle… Romney Retakes Lead Over Obama After ObamaTax Ruling Sinks In
After a brief ObamaTax bump, Mitt Romney retook the lead over Barack Obama today. Maybe it was the realization that most of the ObamaTax burden will fall on the backs of the middle class.
Rasmussen reported, via Free Republic:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting 46% of the vote, while President Obama earns 44%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

While the Supreme Court declared that the president’s health care law is constitutional, they were unable to make it popular. Fifty-two percent (52%) still favor repeal of the law. That’s little changed from a week ago and little changed since the law was passed more than two years ago. However, while most voters still hope for repeal, the belief that it will happen has fallen sharply. Just 39% now believe repeal is even somewhat likely, down from 61% last week…
…A president’s Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends).
Just 30% of Americans now believe the country is better off than it was four years ago.
