Barack Obama Opens Up 4 Point Lead Over Romney in Gallup National Poll Following DNC Convention … Will Dismal Economic Jobs Report Affect Bounce?
It would appear that Barack Obama has received a post convention bounce according to two polls released on Saturday. The Gallup daily tracking poll has Obama at 49% support among registered voters and GOP candidate Mitt Romney with 45%. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Saturday also has a Obama up; however, it is reported with a rather misleading title that Obama leads despite jobs data. Sorry, but the pathetic, anemic and poor jobs report came out on Friday. That is hardly enough time to feel the effects in a poll released on Saturday. Also, the polls for the swing states are going to be a better predictor for who shall be the next President of the United States. In not one battleground state is Obama polling at 50% or better.
President Obama’s post-convention bounce has grown to four points according to two new polls released Saturday.
Gallup’s daily tracking poll has Obama at 49 percent support among registered voters to GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s 45 percent.
The new figures show a 1-point increase for Obama from Friday’s results and reflects voter sentiment after the final day of the Democratic National Convention.
The Gateway Pundit reminds us to be not afraid, Gallup had Jimmy Carter up 4 points over Ronald Reagan in September 1980. We all know how that election turned out and how the undecided voted. I ma hardly suggesting that Romney will win like Reagan did in 1980; however, it is most likely that undecided voters will break to the challenger Romney due to the poor economy.
At some point Americans are going to have to determine how 43+ months of an unemployment rate over 8%, a record number of Americans on food stamps, a national debt over $16 trillion and Barack Obama with no answers to any of it except for more of the same and asking for more time is the answer. Any one with a clue, who actually loves America and wants the United States to go forward and not wind up in economic disaster will vote for Romney.
