Rasmussen Election 2012: Romney 45% Jumps into Lead Over Obama 39%


Hypothetical match up, Obama now trails Romney …

Talk about a reversal of fortune. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Mitt Romney has jumped ahead of Obama and has his biggest lead over the “The One”, 45% to 39%. Just last week Romney trailed Obama 44% to 41%. What has to be most concerning for Barack Obama is that an incumbent president is polling under 40%. Normally it is an issue if an incumbent polls under 50%, but under 40% is a disaster.

Romney’s lead over Obama has grown by this much

Mitt Romney has now jumped to his biggest lead ever over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup. It’s also the biggest lead a named Republican candidate has held over the incumbent in Rasmussen Reports surveying to date.

The latest national telephone survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the former Massachusetts governor, while 39% prefer the president. Ten percent (10%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Presently in the Rasmussen polls, Obama has a 45%-55%, approval/disapproval for his job approval rating. Meanwhile 72% think the country is headed in the wrong direction, while only 22% think the country is headed in the right direction.

      Why is my hubby’s cousin, wife and two grown children/spouses/children in Japan taking the established/legal channels of immigration to the United States? This family has now been on a waiting list for three years. This family has financial backing. In other words … it would not be a burden on the American tax-payer.

      Something is not right with the picture that Mitt Romney is painting.


      Mitt Romney Supported Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

      What part of “illegal” does Mitt Romney not comprehend?

      Will Romney’s proposed conditions of amnesty for “illegals” be applied to ALL nationalities who choose not to comply with the legal established channels of entry to the United States?

      What moral right do “illegals” who fit Romney’s profile have to be afforded places in the front of the immigration queue?

      What moral right do “illegals” who fit Romney’s profile have to be rewarded with a direct route to citizenship?

      What happen to legal consequences for illegal actions?

      Seems the liberal lame stream media and Obozo are working hard pushing out false information in an attempt to pick the Republican candidate that they think is easiest to defeat, Rino RomneyCare; hence the already stupid propaganda of OWS against the 1% rich crap (made for 1% Romney attack later) … rerun of McPain the defeated Rino ….. Yes like most I will for anybody but commmie Obozo/Hilderbeast
