    New poll from Rasmussen with this data:

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 43%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

    The president enjoyed a bounce immediately following release of last week’s job report. However, the bounce has faded, and the race is back to where it was just before Friday’s report


    But here's the kicker this is what will drive Romney's campaign:

    Just 24% believe the jobs market has improved over the past year, while 44% believe it has gotten worse.

    And a very interesting side note:

    Sixty-one percent (61%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of Chick-fil-A, but 13% plan to boycott the company. By way of comparison, 17% favored a boycott of General Motors following the government bailout.

    Rasmussen is also considered one of the most (if not the single most) reliable/accurate pollsters.

    Now that he's in a comfortable lead, Romney should announce his VP...

    That'll get him around 54% I would wager...

    Romney 2012! Not my first choice, but a heckuva lot better than Obama.. And if he picks Bob McDonnel.. It's a wrap for me.

    You see when you poll you get what the people really want.

    Polling cant display the effect of the republican party cheating.


    Rass makes sure things dont look TOO weird in the end

    Remember the exit polls in 2000 and 2004?


    exit polls are the number one indicator of fraud in an election.

    Rasmussen Tracking 8/6 - 8/8 1500 LV 3.0 43 47 Romney +4
    Gallup Tracking 8/1 - 8/7 3050 RV 2.0 47 46 Obama +1

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

    I always look at the average og both of these, knowing though that the anonymous sampling by Gallup is more advantageous to the incumbent than the LV polling of ras...either way, ot was a Dead Cat bounce....

    obama spent the last 2 months outspending Romney 3.5 to 1 on TV ads etc etc.....

    Considering that Romney cant spend most of his money until after the convention. I am happy with these polls.. Obama is down on money since he is spending like crazy on ads. I hope he runs out of money in the end.
