53% Think Obama Will Win, 33% Predict Romney - Rasmussen Reports™

Wednesday, August 29, 2012
The race may be neck-and-neck in the daily Presidential Tracking Poll, but voters by 20 points predict that President Obama will be reelected. Republicans are expected to keep control of the House of Representatives, but voters are evenly divided over the future of the Senate.


Regretfully, I believe the poll will prove to be correct after November's election.

Well of course you believe the poll if you are for Obama.
And if that poll shows different numbers next week then you'll rant and rave against the poll.

The only poll that matters, is the one on November 6th.

I think the OP supports Romney...based on OP's comments and the crying icon.

And the ones who don't wanna believe the poll, will just accuse everyone who does of "bias"!

Not as much supporting of Romney as support the desperate need for change.

Romney/Ryan are also very scary, i.e. Medicare proposals, etc. But, currently, the direction of the Country is in dire shape....headed toward certain doom and gloom.

On this we agree. Obama's lackluster performance coupled with Mitt's failure to catch on ensures that. It'll be tight barring a disastourous debate performance by either party or some external event.
