Mitt Romney up by 5 over Barack Obama 49% to 44% in the latest Rasmussen poll. The incumbent President Obama cannot seem to get over 50%. Obama has a real problem, especially when by a 2 to 1 margin Romney is preferred over Obama to handle the economy, the number 1 issue of the 2012 election. Those undecided voters also agree overwhelmingly that Romney is better equipped to deal with the economy than Obama. Look for undecided voters to break 60-30 for Romney.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting 49% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
The numbers are similar to the 49% to 43% advantage Romney enjoys on the question of who is trusted more to handle the economy.
