    I know i know, this Poll is obviously secretly controlled by those evil rich racist folk. But that being said, hitting the 50% mark is still pretty big for Romney.


    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 50% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 46%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

    Other than brief convention bounces, this is the first time either candidate has led by more than three points in months. See daily tracking history.

    Romney attracts support from 89% of Republican voters. The president earns the vote from 82% of Democrats. Among those not affiliated with either major party, the GOP challenger leads by nine.

    These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, virtually all of the interviews for today’s update were completed before the end of last night’s final presidential debate. It will take a few days to see if the debate had a significant impact on the race...

    Well it shows Rasmussen coming more into line with Gallup's recent results. Now remember that Rasmussen is a three day tracking poll which means all their polling was done prior to last night's debate. Prior to last week's debate they had O+1. So what it does definately indicate is that despite the left's assertion that Obama won last week's debate, undecided voter's didn't think so. Bu that's really not terribly surprising. As I have said in thread after thread, undecided voters will break to the challenger at about a 60% clip and that's what we are seeing here.

    Why that happens is very simple. Someone undecided at this point doesn't like Obama but they are not sold on Romney and what they need to see is Romney either totally collapse or show them enough that they can be comfortable with him. He has accomplished the latter. So who won each debate "point by point" is somewhat irrelevant in the grand scheme. All Romney had to do was to avoid a catastrophe and he would secure the majority of undecideds which will swing this election.

    Blue Phantom, you're spoofing a Borg phrase and juxtaposing with a Klingon symbol.

    Yup......I am well aware of that. The Klingon symbol isn't there for a political reason. It's there because it's descriptive of me, not Romney or Obama. The string of dots between the Romney logo and the Klingon logo are just to make sure they are spaced on opposite sides of my signature.
