Interesting coincidence: Romney leads Obama 49-44 in Rasmussen's poll, the exact lead Obama had over McCain on this date in 2008.

He's leading President Barack Obama in Rasmussen's daily tracking poll by his biggest margin in more than a month.

Romney leads Obama, 49 percent to 44 percent, in the general election matchup. That nearly mirrors the result on who voters say they trust more to handle the economy. Romney leads there 49-43.

On this day in 2008, Obama led Republican nominee John McCain by 5 points - 49 to 44 percent - in Rasmussen's daily tracking.

Funny, that was right before he announced he was choosing Sarah Palin as his VP. We'll have to see what/who Mitt comes up with.

Excellent point, Captain! And the lamestream media was totally protecting, coddling and lying for Obama in 2008. Today people have a better idea who/what Obama really is. No hiding under the MSM blankie this time.

Captain -

The real brass-knuckles drama in 2008 was which "machine" would win - the Power Couple Clintons or the Chicago Crooks/ACORN "machine" backing Obama. (Hillary was from Chicago, and her Hillbuzz.com blog did point out some of the deep dark truths about Prez Graft, but he already had the Lamestream Media in his back pocket. The blog continues, but now denies any connection to Hillary.)

http://hillbuzz.org/

Hillary was accurately described as just a "policy wonk". She displayed none of Bill's charisma nor ability to see beyond the horizon. Her years heading State have been totally unremarkable. And State is an easy department to run due to the depth of experienced diplomats who admirably "do their job" no matter what political appointee has the Big Office.

I join ranks with Joe Scarborough in saying that I am not happy with the prospects of a win by Either Obama OR Romney. Just to set the record straight, it is ironic that, if the election were held today, with no "toss up" states, according to the consensus of polls as collected by Real Clear Politics and which includes data collected by Rasmussen, Obama would win 332 to 206. You Republicans celebrate all you want to.

You glossed over the "toss up" states which, with the Independent vote, will probably decide this coming election.

Romney is already ahead by 7 points with Independents. And I don't foresee that reversing.

http://www.governing.com/blogs/politics/2012-presidential-electoral-vote-breakdown.html
2012 ELECTORAL VOTE BREAK-DOWN
The ten states considered a toss-up are: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Wisconsin, and some of Maine's electoral votes.

The current polls show a tight race in most of these states, so Obama and his sprinkling-flower-petals-before-his-steps lamestream media won't be able to deliver the same cake-walk to Obama this time in these toss-up states. Florida is the big prize with 29 Electoral Votes, so it's Voter ID laws have naturally been targeted by Holder's Dept. of INjustice.

The last Rasmussen Poll in Florida (29 electoral votes) was on July 10, 2012, and shows Romney barely ahead with 46%, and Obama trailing with 45%.

Rasmussen Poll on July 17, 2012 in Ohio (18 electoral votes), shows Obama slightly ahead with 47%, and Romney with 45%.

So the contest is still wide open. And with National Support increasingly going to Romney, and Obama's Job Approval also sinking (Rasmussen today, 7/27/12: 53% Disapprove of job Obama's doing), I expect the state trends to eventually line up more with the national trends.

Bye-Bye Barack!

Chaz,

As you should know from Rush, those projections are just creations of the lamestream media who are setting the stage for Obama's coup. On election day the lamestream media will annoint Obama President and continue the regime even though Romney will have won a majority of the votes.

The do this becuase, uh, uh, uh....well, because they are lame.

On the other hand, it could just be the way the electoral college works.

But, there is also reason to suspect a shift away from Romney on election day. And that is Christian discomfort with what evangelicals see as a cult. Some of these people will have a hard time electing a cult leader when it comes time to cast their ballot. That will really be interesting to see.

Strange how you avoided the NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, 49% to 43%, Obama.

mitt doesn't have a lot of elbow room here. he needs the votes of the social conservative/evangelicals who aren't exactly fired up about mormon mitt of the flip-flop. obama could actually win by default-consevative voter apathy. yet he cannot afford to choose a loose cannon like palin, so bachmann and santorum are definitely out. herman cain would hit on mitt's wife so he's out. christie's a heart attack/stroke waiting to happen. leaving our boy with rubio or ryan.

That poll had an 11 point, or was it 12, Dem sampling advantage. Which translated into an Obama 6 point edge. You're celebrating that?

You are aware that there are roughly 42 million registered Democrats in the United States and 30 million registered Republicans? Any poll that didn't reflect that very large gap would be the inaccurate one, not the other way around.

Rasmussen has time and again been proven to oversample Republicans in their polls. In the 2010 congressional elections, 13 of their polls were off by more than 10 percentage points and one of them was off by more than 40 percentage points, the largest gap ever by a so-called professional polling organization.

In the days after Obama took office, Rasmussen had his disapproval at 36%, whereas no other pollster had it higher than 20%.

Almost all polls except for Rasmussen have Obama either in the lead, a few of them have him tied, and pretty much only Rasmussen has Romney ahead. And nearly all polls have Obama leading in crucial swing states like Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Nevada, and Iowa. The only two states Romney seems likely to win from Obama 2008 states are Indiana and North Carolina.

Sorry, Romney doesn't have a prayer. And like Palin before him, all he needs to do is keep opening his mouth for people to see what a goofball he really is. Just ask the Brits.
