Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Friday, May 11, 2012

Have a look and see.

It's been a rough week for both !

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney earning 50% of the vote and President Obama attracting 43% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another three percent (3%) are undecided.

Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

This is the first time Romney has reached the 50% level of support and is his largest lead ever over the president. It comes a week after a disappointing jobs report that raised new questions about the state of the economy. See tracking history.

Gulp !!

Thirty-seven percent (37%) give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of the economy. Forty-eight percent (48%) say he’s doing a poor job. Consumer confidence has slipped four points since last week’s government report on job creation and unemployment. The number who believe their personal finances are getting better slipped from 30% a week ago to 28% today. The number who fear their finances are getting worse increased from 43% before the jobs report to 47% today.

Gulp !!

Well, you get a copy/paste reply from the duplicate thread....not sure which one will end up staying.

I can use the AP poll to show that Obama is +8 over Romney.

It's a long way to is the time for polls to create a baseline for trending using an average of all polls.

If you want to be honest about these polls and election, use realclearpolitics and use their RCP average.

It is going to be a close always will be...national polling will matter up until around July/August...then it's time to start looking at individual states.

Polls are inherently flawed, particularly when you measure it vs something like Google trends. This video does a good job on the topic

Polls are flawed when you stack them with democrats!

Reuters Poll:

47% Democrats

38% Republicans

15% Independents

Faux News is basically projecting that Romney is the winner, and that even considering Paul as a third party canidate would cause Obama to lose even more votes.

It sounds like typical Faux News propaganda to me.
