Swing states poll: Health care victories hurt Obama and Romney in 2012

In the swing states (MI, OH, VA, CO, IA, FL, NV, NH, NM, NC, PA, and WI), Santorum led Obama 50%-45% and Romney led Obama 48%-46%.

Nationally, Santorum led Obama 49%-46% and Romney and Obama were tied 47%-47%.

It's a USA Today/Gallup poll, liberals. It's not Rasmussen or Fox News or anything.

More proof that many of these Polls are rigged. Everyone with half a brain knows that Santorum hasn't even Got a chance at the nomination, much less the presidency. He isn't even on the ballot in how many states? Santorum is the one person that would most certainly ensure an Obama second term should he somehow manage to win the nomination in spite of the fact he cant even win nearly 800 delegates.

This race is becoming more of a joke all the time ...

Do you not trust a USA Today/Gallup poll?

I absolutely think that the more people hear from Santorum, the lower his general election poll numbers will go.

Romney has led Obama in many polls for as long as I can remember. Santorum has led Obama in other polls as well, but none that I can recall before a few weeks ago.

Because he's not one of the front-runners in the GOP race.

Dude, you can't just group all the swing states into one and poll them!! You have to poll them individually to be accurate. This is just useless data. Plus, several of the states are fresh off GOP primary where they were bombarded with pro GOP ads so of course voters are going to tilt toward the GOP candidate.

You are wrong, Paul has the second most amount of delegates ...

obama has led romney in the rcp average and has beat him in the last 8 of 10 national polls released.

romney has never had a lead on obama.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

Scroll down and look at all the polls. There are quite a few where he leads and quite a few where he and Obama are tied.

Look at the graph. There have been a few times when Romney led in the average of polls. I know you dislike Romney, but please don't lie.

FYI - I never suggested that there weren't polls coming out where Obama led Romney or even that Romney led Obama in a majority of polls.
