Romney Ahead in FOX News Poll over Obama 46% to 45% … 6 Point Swing Following Debate


Add another poll to the long list on post-Presidential debate ones that nor have Mitt Romney in the lead.

The latest is a FOX News poll that had GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney now ahead of President Obama 46% to 45. This is a 6 point turn-around from the previous poll. Mitt Romney is reaping the rewards of his tremendous debate performance and Obama’s “empty chair” failure. Amazingly Romney now leads with Independents over Obama 44% to 32%. Prior to the debate Obama had a 43% to  39% advantage. That is a 16 point swing with Independents.

Mitt Romney now holds a narrow advantage over Barack Obama in the race for the White House — 46 percent to 45 percent, if the election were held today, according to a Fox News national poll of likely voters released Wednesday.

That’s a six-point turnaround and a three-point “debate bounce” for Romney.

Before the first presidential debate in Denver last Wednesday, Romney had 43 percent to Obama’s 48 percent (September 24-26, 2012).

Romney’s edge comes mainly from independents, white voters and men.  Just over half of men (51 percent) back Romney now, the highest level of support he’s received among this group.

The poll shows independents side with Romney by 44-32 percent.  That’s a reversal from before the debate when it was 43-39 in Obama’s favor.  One independent in four is undecided or will vote for another candidate.

In the poll Romney leads Obama on the question of who would you rate doing a better job handling the economy; managing your tax dollars 49% to 42%, improving the economy and creating jobs 51% to 43% and reducing the deficit 52% to 39%.

Add this poll to all the others that now have Romney in the lead:

  • Rasmussen Tracking: Romney +1
  • IBD/TIPP Tracking: Romney +5
  • Pew Research: Romney +4

      A politician can hide the truth only so long. Eventually the people will find it and when they do, they will turn the politician out of office.

      Obama/Sobarka or whoever he is has been exposed to be about destroying the American concept and replacing it with third-world socialism including promotion of Islam and Sharia law.

      The American people must remove this administration and all its appointees from our government. Our founding fathers would be appaled at how far we have deviated from their concepts of America.
