Daily Swing State Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™

Obama has only a one point lead in swing states with 46 to 45 for Obama. That leaves a large undecided vote of 9%. Maybe 2% goes to Johnson but the large majority usually goes to the challenger. Romney is in the driver's seat.

Interesting that you quote Rass, but when the say that Obama has a 52% approval rating your fellow rightis discount it.

Why do you guys keep repeating that? Nate Silver has discredited that idea, and a simple Google search will pull that up.

Anyway, unless you buy the report, Rasmussen doesn't define what the swing states are. I'm betting they're counting MO, which is Romney will probably win by a comfortable margin. And NC, which Romney was leading by +5 or so. Either way, Obama only needs to take Ohio, and the Romney campaign admitted yesterday that internal polling shows them down by high single digits there. So.... ?

Too bad Romney looks like crap in tv interviews.

The trees are the right height here.

The Rasmussen Poll is the ONLY one I go by............always on the money. And, really, don't look at the day-to-day. I think Romney wins this one.........thank god!

Hopefully Obama can seal the deal at the first debate.
