    Basically, for those who won't read because Bloomberg is a hate site (defined as any site not pushing pro-Right Wing Agendas of course), the poll shows that while a lot of Americans give the President low marks on the economy, Romney's plan seems much worse to them. They also see him as being disconnected.

    There's certainly a lot of time between now and the election, but it would appear that at this point, Romney's not doing a great job of looking like someone that the public in general is buying into. That said, if the economy completely goes shit-house in the next five months, I'm not sure Romney wouldn't beat Obama at that point.

    Also of note, this poll was conducted after Obama got basically three straight weeks of shitty economic news. So how does Romney start to engage voters and not look like a robotic puppet of Wall Street?

    Bloomberg is the only one showing such a lead. Gallup and Rammussen, both having a much better track record on these issues then Bloomberg, have Romney leading.

    I think this is a more revealing poll though.

    Americans' Low Satisfaction With the U.S. and the Implications for Obama


    "Gallup Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport reveals that 20% of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S., which is much lower than the percentage who were satisfied with the U.S. when Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan were re-elected."

    If Romney wants to win, he needs to stop behaving insincerely. These cheesy grits moments are making him look as fake as a three dollar bill.

    He also needs to stop dodging questions the way he did on Face the Nation the other day. What an embarrassing display of equivocation that was.

    The man's balls are the size of peas.

    The first and last time Romney ever impressed me was when he smacked the living shit out of Newt Gingrich in the Florida primary debate. Newt was ended right then and there. He died before his body hit the floor.

    For about two minutes there, Romney was a hard pounder.

    Unfortunately, his true nature is that of a flake.

    Obama will win because Romney caused too many GOP voters to stay home.

    Unless Obama royally screws up and causes too many Dem voters to stay home.

    This won't be decided by who's best. This will be decided by which one is perceived as the least incompetent.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns 45%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and another five percent (5%) are undecided.

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

    This is the 12th straight day that Romney has held a slight advantage. Over the past 22 days, the president has been in the lead just one time. See tracking history.
