Don’t Look Now But Real Clear Politics Has the Presidential General Election a Tie Between Romney & Obama at 46.8% A Piece


So the people in the know claim that Mitt Romney got no bounce from the Republican National Convention, eh? Don’t look now but according to Real Clear Politics that averages numerous polls, the Presidential election between Romney and Obama is a dead even tie at 46.8%. Although the polling of “likely voters” comes from Rasmussen where Romney is up +3% over Obama.

It is just hard to imagine that an incumbent president with such a poor economics record, with unemployment over 8% and job growth sliding the wrong direction and at anemic levels. All the excuses can be made by Obama, former President Clinton and all, but the fact of the matter is that Barack Obama promised he would fix the economy in 3-4 years otherwise it would be a one term proposition. In other words Obama claimed, read mu lips, I will fix the economy. If such proclamations can be held against past Presidents, its good for this goose as well.

An incumbent President under 50% is hardly the place to be just a couple of months before the election.

      This is the same kind of polling we saw in 2010 and I don’t need to tell anybody what happened then. I did some checking on line and from what I found the best way to apply shellac is by spraying it on. It greatly reduces the amount of work involved which would fall right in line with our present potus.

      Thank you Tamikosmom;
      This explains why Gallup is polling as close as it is. I am surprised that the LSM didn’t pick up this story (NOT). I guess Gallup has since went back to the 70/30 dem/rep ratio that Mr. Axelgrease prefers.
