    Obama-Romney Race Toss-Up in Poll Showing Independents Critical

    Quote:
    A strengthening economy and a contentious Republican primary have not translated into a wave of support for President Barack Obama, who runs even in a matchup against his likely challenger, Mitt Romney.
    Obama and Romney are backed by 47 percent of likely general election voters, while the president outruns the other Republican candidates, a Bloomberg National Poll conducted March 8-11 shows. While Obama’s job approval has improved among independents, whose votes will swing the election in November, 49 percent support Romney and 41 percent Obama in the survey.

    There were a couple of new Polls that came out yesterday showing Obama with a sizeable lead over the Weird Mormon Robot.

    FOX News 3/10 - 3/12 912 RV 46 42 Obama +4
    Rasmussen Tracking 3/11 - 3/13 1500 LV 44 46 Romney +2
    Reuters/Ipsos 3/8 - 3/11 937 RV 52 41 Obama +11
    Bloomberg 3/8 - 3/11 746 LV 47 47 Tie
    Pew Research 3/7 - 3/11 1188 RV 54 42 Obama +12
    CBS News/NY Times 3/7 - 3/11 878 RV 47 44 Obama +3
    ABC News/Wash Post 3/7 - 3/10 RV 47 49 Romney +2
    IBD/CSM/TIPP 3/4 - 3/11 807 RV 46 41 Obama +5

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

    Two show Magic Underpants up, one tie, and five showing Obama with a lead.

    Again, though, I'm not putting a lot of stock at this point. Romney is having a hard time beating Santorum, a has been with no organization, no money and fairly whacky views. He should be firing his campaign managers like they wuz AmPad workers the way they've mismanged this campaign.

    I can only imagine what's going to happen when he comes up against Obama's well-oiled machine.

    Well to be fair..look at who they are trying to appeal to at this point. Bat shit crazy tea party types.

    In the general, Romney is going to morph into yet another iteration of Romney that is more centrist.

    And he will be telling everyone not to pay attention to the Romney that ran during the primaries.

    Situational ethics..ya know! :D

    Obamma isn't winning any friends amongst Latino's ,ICE has split up many families and they are not happy,he campaigned in 08 on immigration reform,non has come about,but deportations are way up.

    They feel betrayed and he doesn't have time to do anything about it.

    I don't see how he distances himself from Romney of the primaries. As it is, you are going to have a bunch of commercials showing him saying contradictory things between 2002 Romney and 2012 Romney. Flipping a third time, will just make it all look worse.

    You'd have to know CEO mentality to understand that one. They live on a totally different level. Which is why he's having trouble actually connecting with anyone.
