Romney Jumps to 4 Point Lead As Obama Slides in Polls

Mitt Romney jumped to a four point lead over Barack Obama in the latest Rasmussen poll.
Only 44% of likely voters support incumbent Obama – a terrible number.

Rasmussen reported:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 44% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Just prior to this past week’s Republican National Convention, Romney trailed the president by two. Today’s four-point advantage confirms that the GOP hopeful has received the expected convention bounce. See daily tracking history. Romney also has gained ground in the swing state tracking results updated daily for subscribers at 10:00 a.m. Eastern.

Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern.

And, considering the media is currently pulling off an all-out assault on Republicans, this number must be very concerning for Democrats.

    And Barry will get a “bump” following the Dem convention. Nothing new about this really when the average voter only sees politics based on the latest flickering images on the tube.

    The American Pravda propaganda complex will pad the bias by increasing the oversampling of Dems/Leftists over the amounts even now.

  • Patty

    If the attacks and Obama skirts the failures of his administration, a bump would be knocking someone off stage of pretense.

  • Patty

    America is sick of the attacks and especially in a venue where there should be positivity. But the democrats just don’t roll that way.

    There truly is much they can focus on. Obama good needs, laughable. Obama past huh!

    Obama’s presidency of Blame and Attacking Congress, Supreme Court and Capitalism. Huh!

    Spend that.

    Big Government: According to new research released today by Rasmussen, more voters identify themselves as Republican than ever in the last 8 years. More importantly, by a 4 point margin, more voters identify as GOP than Democrat. This is the largest spread between the parties ever. Worse for Democrats, the number of voters who identify with their party is also approaching an historic low.

    In August, 37.6% of voters identified themselves as Republican. That is up from 34.9% in July. By contrast, just 33.3% of voters identify themselves as Democrats. That is very near their historic low in February, when 32.4% of voters identified as Democrat. The 4.3 margin in favor of the GOP is the biggest gap ever between the parties. In November 2010, when the GOP won a landslide in the mid-term elections, their advantage was just 1.3 points.

    Immediately prior to Obama’s inauguration, the Democrat party held a nearly 9 point edge over Republicans. Over 41% of voters called themselves Democrats then, compared to around 32% who were Republicans. It is a stunning reversal as Obama heads into reelection.

    Romney led by 3 points in the Rasmussen polls only 2 weeks ago and then Obama reversed it after the Ryan nomination and barrage of media and advertising lies

    Well even.though obama has 43% approval on Gallup he still gets 47% of the vote. I have never see gallup go an entire week before with no change. Im calling bs.

    Oh, but wait until the mega-bounce after the Women’s Summit, I mean DNC in Charlotte! After we all see that 73,000+ stadium cheering His Greatness while he is accepting the nomination, none of us will be able to resist. It will be all over for Romney/Ryan……….(pure sarcasm)

  • Patty

    OT will see what sort of bump or jump DNC gets.

    Bill Clinton celebrates fornication adultery indecency slander and pride.

    Rahm Emanuel celebrates malice and deceit

    Nancy Keenan, Tammy Duckworth, Barbara Mikulski, Cecile Richards and Kamala Harris celebrate the murder of innocent children.

    Elizabeth Warren celebrates deceit.

    Antonio Villaraigosa celebrates adultery and the murder of innocent babies.

    Eva Longoria: Best known for using her acting talents to celebrate adultery on Desperate Housewives.
    Barbara Lee who has said, “An abstinence-until-marriage program is not only irresponsible. It’s really inhumane” in celebration of fornication.

    The Democrats will put on a display of virtually everything Jesus told us is evil and little else. If they would merely keep to themselves and leave us alone we could just go our separate ways and pray for them. Nevertheless, not only will not reform themselves they have used the power of their god G.O.V. to force us to abandon our love of God’s laws of the sanctity of life and marriage. Remember this in November.

    Yup, people are just standing in line to fill that stadium. That is why they are giving away tickets! Initially you had to volunteer some time to the Obama campaign to get a pair of tickets. Now they are holding raffles in bars – and if less than 50 people show up everybody gets a pair. HAHAHA

    My question is why is Gallup still polling Registered Voters 2 months before the election? If Gallup went to a Likely Voters screen their numbers would mirror Rasmussen.

    Just wait until the debates. . .

    MSM becoming unhinged. . .

    One might attribute it to lack of leadership but it is more and worse. . it is purposeful. . . His ANTI-COLONIALISM Beliefs

    The root of Obama’s thinking and character was his Mom. . .
    She is the one who filled little Barry’s head with thoughts and concepts . . .
    and was ANTI-American!

    D’Souza highlighted from OBAMA’s own words in his book (p47 in Dreams). .
    Lolo invites Obama’s mother to attend dinner parties with American businessmen. She refuses and says, “They are not my people” (p. 47)

    Obama’s mom hated America. . .and Capitalism and HER father (Obama’s white grandfather) was a Commie sympathizer and pal of Frank Davis.
    For mor about Obama and his mother’s influence, see page 52 in the following link

    So Obama in his head, when he flies over the US looks down and says
    THESE ARE NOT MY PEOPLE! That is why he has ignored the flood victims in Louisiana

    Go see the film, , and bring a friend!

    Democratic convention will be a far cry from the enthusiasm of 2008

    Read more:

    Four years ago, Barack Obama stood before a crowd of 84,000 people in Denver and unleashed a blistering assault on “the broken politics of Washington.”

    This week, he’ll try to convince the country that his presidency has turned that all around — and that he can do even more if he wins another term.

    It won’t be a cakewalk. And this week’s gathering in Charlotte, N.C., will be a very different convention.

    Back then, Obama was untested, but he was a rock star to his followers. As the first African-American to lead a major party ticket into November, he was a living banner. His message of change resonated deeply with young voters, spurring thousands to throw themselves into his battle for the White House.

    But many of those who sent Obama to the Oval Office are now looking again for inspiration — and also for jobs. Voters who went to the polls carrying the memory of their candidate quoting the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a man of peace, wonder why the nation remains at war.

    And those who thought Obama was too liberal, too ready to rebuild a system emphasizing entitlements over enterprise, rallied to help Mitt Romney and the Republicans raise more than the President and his party three months in a row.

    Where Obama in 2008 had hope, now he’s got history.

    “The entire campaign is very different, and by extension, so is the convention. (It’s) a little bit like renewing one’s marriage vows — important and special, but it does not necessarily have the magic of the first time,” says Democratic strategist Chris Lehane.

    “The 2008 convention was a historical moment and, appropriately so, aspirational in nature, whereas 2012 is about the reelection of an incumbent and so, by its very definition, a compare-and-contrast convention when it comes to laying out the case for four more years.”

    Read more:

    Obama during the time leading up to the DNC convention has used diversionary tactics to divide America. What president has done that and actually expects good results. Other that a dictator who forces his people into a world of government rule and the people are under its thumb.

    As Eastwood said, we own this country, and by all indications Obama believes Government does. We aren’t better off and at the convention you are going to here everyone on the right being blamed for the past for years. Excuses like children give to their parents when the are wrong. No honor in admitting they were. And when our Government has completely, taken away the core of our being, we become subjects to that government.

  • Hamp

    This is scary. There will be a false flag attack event somewhere on U.S. soil if Obama continues to slip in the polls. Be on you guard for anything including chemical and/or nuclear. He is a desperate man. Trust the liar (hope and change) only as far as you can spit into the wind.

    Mistakes on economy make Obama vulnerable

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, with a number of Bay Area executives, economists and campaign contributors in his corner, has made it quite clear he’ll be campaigning almost exclusively on the sitting president’s handling of the economy.

    This week’s Democratic National Convention should give us a better idea of how President Obama, also backed by Bay Area economists, corporate executives and campaign cash (though not as bountiful as last time), will defend himself.

    So, let’s get straight to the points where, in my humble opinion, Obama is vulnerable.

    — “Misunderestimation”: In Vice President Biden’s words, “we misread how bad the economy was.” That is, they misread how deep the recession went, the extent to which its roots preceded the Bush administration and how long the recovery would take.

    — Too little: The $787 billion stimulus package in 2009 wasn’t nearly big enough. “The administration – and I count myself in this – didn’t fight hard enough. I wish we had made a much stronger case for doing more,” UC Berkeley economics professor Christina Romer, the former chairwoman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, told me last year.

    “We needed to say ($787 billion) was good, but the situation has turned out worse than we expected, and we need another chunk. I think that would have been very helpful.”

  • Granny

    @Patty –

    That $787 BILLION would have been more than enough if it had been spent wisely by someone who had half a clue what he was doing rather than being passed out as crony rewards to be off-shored and buried. Most of that money went for nothing and huge chunks of it have simply disappeared into thin air.

    When you’re being robbed you don’t go down to the bank to borrow more for the robber.

    “The Demorats Gather for Convention”

    Let us shout, Hallelujah, “THE WON’S” comin’ to town
    Our convention’s about to begin.
    So put on “happy faces”. Turn those frowns upside down,
    And pretend FEARLESS LEADER will win!

    We have done all we could to keep hidden the truth–
    (CORRUPT MEDIA was his whore from the start).
    ‘Tho its influence is dying; and its concept of “proof”,
    Made the worst of “Three Stooges” look smart.

    Still, we’ll muddle along; “It’s all part of the show!”
    Doesn’t Barry look, “So hip these days”?
    “His ears never looked better, and his golf scores, you know,
    Are deserving of the public’s best praise!

    Our elites will be here; pray the rabble won’t swoon,
    By the “great ones’ high-tech/high-def glow!
    Presidenta Jarrett will command the whole room,
    Even Godfather Rahm plans to show!

    We will bravely ignore those unflattering facts,
    Which our Media Whores may not shroud–
    (So many of the “faithful” shall be missing “all acts”—
    They will lose if they’re seen in our crowd!)

    Make the Kool-Aid more potent! Triple pork all around!
    We can spend like we’re “Kings for a Day”!
    So what if we lose; when THE WON’S lost His crown,
    We’ve still BILLIONS safe hidden away!

    The President’s Heroics and Other Tall Tales about the Auto Industry

    GM’s recent profits speak only to the fact that politicians committed more than $50 billion to the task of rescuing those companies and the United Auto Workers. With debts expunged, cash infused, inefficiencies severed, ownership reconstituted, sales rebates underwritten and political obstacles steamrolled — all in the midst of a recovery in U.S. auto demand — only the most incompetent operations could fail to make profits.

    But taxpayers are still short at least $10 billion to $20 billion (depending on the price that the government’s 500 million shares of GM will fetch), and there is still significant overcapacity in the auto industry. {part of article}

He should have focused like a laser on the economy until it was clear that it was out of the woods. Had Mr. Obama not been distracted by health, I think he would have done more to fix the housing industry, which continues to be an albatross around the economy’s neck.”

Perhaps Plouffe thought he would get all softball questions from the host of ABC’s This Week Week With George Stephanopoulos who normally carries the water for Obama. In any case, as you can see from the transcript and video below the fold, Stephanopoulos gives Plouffe three opportunities to answer the question which he dares not do.
