Rasmussen Poll: More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites Or Hispanics … Even Blacks Think Blacks are More Racist than Whites

I thought that racism was supposed to go away when Barack Obama was elected president?

The following is a rather eye opening poll from Rasmussen with regards to racism in the United States. The poll states that blacks are more likely to be racist that White or Hispanics, 37% of American adults think that most black Americans are racist, while just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% consider most Hispanics racist. What might be the most interesting aspect of the poll is that a plurality, 31%, think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way. The LEFT wants to smear Rasmussen as right-wing  in order to make claims the the poll is has no merit. However, what would one expect the polling data to be when the liberal MSM and race baiters in the US have all but allowed such “reverse” racism to go unpunished.

We need to look no further than the racially charged murder case of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin to see such actions.  Rachel Jeantel took the stand for the prosecution and testified that  Trayvon described the man following him [George Zimmerman] as a “creepy ass cracker”. Jeantel was asked whether that was a racial slur, she said no. Thus, we can see that if such a slur is not considered racial, then such racism is institutionalized within the culture.


Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the post-racial president?

Americans consider blacks more likely to be racist than whites and Hispanics in this country.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

There is a huge ideological difference on this topic. Among conservative Americans, 49% consider most blacks racist, and only 12% see most whites that way. Among liberal voters, 27% see most white Americans as racist, and 21% say the same about black Americans.

From a partisan perspective, 49% of Republicans see most black Americans as racist, along with 36% of unaffiliated adults and 29% of Democrats.

Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.

Rasmussen Poll: 26% Of Obama’s Supporters View Tea Party As Nation’s Top Terror Threat … Liberalism Really is a Disease

The AMA does not need to made obesity a disease … they need to make Liberalism one.

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 26% of those who approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance think that the Tea Party is a greater threat to America than radical Muslim. They don’t call these folks “moonbats” for nothing. As for those who actually have a functioning brain and who disapprove of Obama’s performance, 75% consider radical Muslims to be the bigger terrorist threat and just 1% are influenced by the MSM and name the Tea Party. It is rather remarkable that those who are for the US Constitution, limited government and balanced budgets is some how considered worse than those who would kill Americans. So sorry if the Tea Party believes in freedom and liberty. However, this is what happens when a Presidents makes more of an effort to have a war on its own citizens who express their First Amendment rights of Free Speech and a lapdog liberal MSM acts as a presidents propaganda arm to smear his political enemies rather than report the truth. UNREAL.

Must watch VIDEO … Yea, because these folks look and act like terrorists, unreal! (Tennessee Tea Party 4/15/09)

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups. Two percent (2%) see the Occupy Wall Street movement as the bigger terrorist threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

However, among those who approve of the president’s job performance, just 29% see radical Muslims as the bigger threat. Twenty-six percent (26%) say it’s the Tea Party that concerns them most. Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.

This is actually quite something. The far LEFT is truly deranged. Sorry, but I strongly oppose Barack Obama, his agenda and pretty much 99.9% of what he believes in, but I do not think the radical LEFT is a greater threat to America than Al-Qaeda. However, after this poll … maybe the radical, far LEFT is more dangerous.

The Daily Caller reminds us that the Tea Party has never committed an act of terror. Too bad the Leftist Occupy movement can’t say the same.

Rasmussen: Barack Obama Job Approval Daily Tracking Poll … Obama 45% Approve, 54% Disapprove

In the latest Rasmussen job approval daily tracking poll, President Barack Obama is well underwater as the multiple scandals that plague his presidency and a continued floundering economy. Only 45% of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, while 54% disapprove. Including 63% of Independents who disapprove of the job Obama is doing. Honestly, how can 83% of Democrats really approve of the job Obama is doing? That is simply just partisan BS. Obama is mired in multiple scandals with Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen & Fox News, Fast & Furious, the NSA and the many coming out of the State Department. Add that to a floundering economy, record number of Americans on Food Stamps and disability and a president that has no status in the world to get anything done. We have a lame duck president in Obama who had lost the trust of the American people. Except for partisan hack Democrats who would say BO is doing a good job no matter what.


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) now disapprove (see trends).

Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats approve, and 87% of Republicans disapprove. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 35% approve, and 63% disapprove.

RCP have Obama’s average polling job approval at 45.6% Approve and 46.% disapprove.

Americans No Longer Trust Their Government … 57% Fear Government Will Use NSA Data to Harass Political Opponents

Americans have lost trust in their government and believe it is a threat to their individual rights. Our rights are endowed by Our Creator, not government. Don’t ever forget what our Founding Fathers states … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government …”

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such  has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. (Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776)


What ever happened to the dream of Our Founding Fathers of a government of, by and for the People? It would appear that those days are gone as Americans now fear the very government that is supposed to be for “We the People”. The continual scandals of the Obama administration bring into play just how big, how out of control and how vindictive the federal government has become.  In a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of Americans fear the Government will use NSA data to harass political opponents. Why would they feel like that, it’s not as though the IRS willfully and purposely targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations, while they have liberal and progressive groups a free pass. Oh that’s right, they did. Forget the fact that it is most likely Unconstitutional to collect data on all Americans to use at a later date, whether it is for national security or not. The problem is that when there is a situation that can present itself for abuse, it will be compromised. We need to look no further than the IRS scandal that obviously aided Barack Obama in winning reelection by harassing and preventing his opponents from organizing. And despite the fact that Barack Obama has told us that they do not listen in on phone calls, according to another Rasmussen poll, 68% think it is likely that the government is listening to their conversations.

Making matters worse that Americans have lost trust in their government is that 56% of Americans believe that their Government is a threat to their individuals rights. How is this possible that “WE THE PEOPLE” have allowed a government to go rogue? Another 60% say it is likely other agencies targeted Conservatives as well. We have a government that is “Too Big” to succeed. What are the chances that the IRS also perpetrated their illegal acts against conservatives to help Obama and ensure that Obamacare would not be repealed along with the 16,000 news IRS jobs that go along with Obamacare? Hmm, think there is a slight conflict of interest there from the organization that was to implement and enforce Obamacare?

The United States was founded on a belief that governments are created to protect certain unalienable rights. Today, however, more voters than ever view the federal government as a threat to those rights.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters now consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights. That’s up 10 points from 46% in December.

Rasmussen: Only 6% Rate News Media As Very Trustworthy … Looks Like Congress has Competition

Just when you thought that the US Congress had the lowest poll ratings, along comes America’s views on the main stream media. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, only 6% of those polled think that the media is very trustworthy, while 42% do not trust the news media and  12% believe the news it reports is not trustworthy at all. Before the media comments on the low Congressional approval ratings, they might just want to look in the mirror first.  With the bias that exists in the media today and a liberal media complex that acts more like a propaganda arm of the Obama White House than a concerned  investigative media, is it any wonder why so many do not trust their reporting.

Most voters still get their news from television and consider the news reported by the media generally trustworthy.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters say they get most of their news from TV, including 32% who get it from cable news networks and 24% who get it from traditional network news. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that another 25% use the Internet as their main source of news, while only 10% still rely on print newspapers. Seven percent (7%) get most of their news from radio. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Fifty-six percent (56%) of all voters regard the news reported by the media as at least somewhat trustworthy, but that includes just six percent who think it is Very Trustworthy. Forty-two percent (42%) don’t trust the news media, with 12% who believe the news it reports is Not At All Trustworthy.  

The PJ Tatler opines, what a sad state of affairs when the two institutions, the media and Congress, that should be the two institutions Americans should rely on most. However, sadly both have failed them. The good news at least is that the American people realize how useless both really are.

57% of Americans Prove to be Envious of Others … Favor Tax Hike On Those Who Make Over $250,000

America, taxing the so-called rich is not a job growth plan nor good for the economy …

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of Americans think they have a right to steel other people’s money and hard work and call it their own. Fifty-seven percent of Americans think that it is ok to increase taxes on those who make over $250,000. Sadly, this country has become a group of individuals influenced by class warfare, wrapped in ignorance and tied with a ribbon of  envy. These envious people do this knowing that it is not enough to balance the federal budget. Hmm, I wonder how many of these people would be in favor of increasing taxes on all Americans no matter what they make, including the numerous one’s that pay no income taxes? Seriously, if it is as Obama and Biden say “Patriotic” and that there should be shared sacrifice, why do not all Americans have to pay taxes and have skin in the game. These greedy and envious folks are going to be in for a surprise when the bar is lowered to $200K or $100K. They will be screaming bloody murder when the taxes actually affect them.

Most voters favor raising taxes on those who earn more than $250,000 a year but recognize that that won’t be enough to balance the federal budget.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor raising taxes on people who earn more than $250,000 a year. Thirty-five percent (35%) are opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

BTW, who said these politicians were going to pay down the debt with the tax revenue?

Romney Takes Lead in Final Rasmussen Poll …Also Leads in Final Gallup Poll As Well

In the final Rasmussen poll before the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney has taken the lead over Barack Obama 49% to 48%.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 48%. Two percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided.

Rasmussen Reports will conduct our final tracking poll tonight and release the results early Tuesday morning. Later today, we will issue our final swing state polls including Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire.

Mitt Romney also leads Obama in the daily Gallup poll, 49% to 48%. . What we are witnessing in the polls is that an incumbent president cannot poll over 50%. If as Gallup is reporting that early voting is breaking for Obama by only 49% to 48%, Obama is in for a long election night. Barack Obama would have needed to have early voting break by a much greater number than 1%.

The polling is over and it’s time to vote. Let’s vote for America, not revenge.

Mitt Romney Breaks Through the Obama Ohio Fire Wall … Rasmussen Presidential Poll – Ohio: Romney 50% – Obama 48%


Mitt Romney has had the momentum on his side leading up to the 2012 Presidential election. A number of battleground states have been trending to Romney like Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia and Colorado.

This had caused Barack Obama to go all in for the state of Ohio. However, it appears that strategy has failed as Mitt Romney has broke through Obama’s last line of defense. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Romney now leads Obama, 50% to 48%.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Add to this impressive trending for Romney in battleground states that he is now tied with President Obama in Wisconsin, a state that Obama won in 2008 by double digits. Also, Romney is tied with Obama in Iowa. Mitt Romney has also taken a 4 point lead in the Rasmussen Daily Swing State tracking poll, 50% to 46%.

The full Swing State tracking update offers Rasmussen Reader subscribers a combined view of the results from 11 key states won by President Obama in 2008 and thought to be competitive in 2012. The states collectively hold 146 Electoral College votes and include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Romney also leads Obama in the Gallup and Rasmussen National polls  by 5% and 2%, respectively. With all this polling data, it would appear that Romney does have the momentum and a path to victory.

Who Won the Presidential Debates … Mitt Romney 49% – Barack Obama 41%

So who won the Presidential debates? Rasmussen says Mitt Romney 59% to Barack Obama’s 41%. For those who think otherwise all one has to do is go to the polling date prior to the first debate. Mitt Romney won the first debate in a landslide over Barack Obama, as Romney shined and Obama seemed as if he could care less.

Most voters consider the three presidential debates at least somewhat important to how they will vote, and a plurality of those that watched thinks Mitt Romney was the overall debate winner.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds just eight percent (8%) of Likely U.S. Voters did not watch any of the debates. Sixty-three percent (63%) watched a portion or all of all three debates.

For those who think that Romney did not win the debate wars, in an election year where debates really mattered, check out the polling data before the debates. That means you Al Gore, John Kerry and Democrats. Prior to the debates, Gallup Tracking 9/27-10/3: +4 Obama, CNN/Opinion Research 9/28 – 9/30:  +3 Obama, ABC News/Wash Post 9/26 – 9/29: +2 Obama and Rasmussen Tracking 10/1 – 10/3: +2 Obama

Following the debates, Gallup 10/18 – 10/24: +3 Romney, Rasmussen Reports 10/22 – 10/24: +3 Romney and ABC News/Wash Post 10/21 – 10/24: +3 Romney.

Romney over Obama in Rasmussen Poll 50% – 46% and Romney Leads Obama in Gallup 51% to 46%

Romney now polling at or above 50% in both Rasmussen and Gallup polls …

Don’t look now but the bottom is starting to fall out from underneath President Barack Obama. The once lead by Obama is gone and now Romney not only has the lead in the Rasmussen and Gallup poll, all the polling trends are toward Romney.

Mitt Romney is now ahead in the latest Rasmussen poll 50% to 46%.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 50% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 46%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

Mitt Romney also leads in the Gallup tracking poll 51% to 46%.
