Rasmussen Poll: Obama 51, Romney 46

President Obama cracks 50 percent in the latest survey from Rasmussen. He leads Mitt Romney by 5 points, 51 percent to 46.

It’s identical to the margin from the firm’s poll in early October.

The firm surveyed 500 likely Pa. voters on October 24 via automated interviews. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.5 percent.

Republican National Committee spokesman Ted Kwong put a positive spin on the numbers, noting the fact that Romney is much closer among those certain they will vote.

“A new Rasmussen poll of Pennsylvania today shows that enthusiasm favors the Romney/Ryan ticket in the Keystone State, where the race remains close despite the fact that President Obama won the state by over 10 points in 2008. Among the 90% of Pennsylvanians certain they will vote, the race is a dead heat, with Obama at 49% and Romney taking 48%,” he said.

Romney must work to seal the deal with voters who disapprove of the President’s job performance. 51 percent of voters say Obama is doing a good job, 49 percent disapprove.

Romney’s favorability is split: 49 percent unfavorable and 48 percent favorable.

  1. Obama is no more an Affirmative Action President than the inept Teabaggers that “you people” elected into Congress with zero experience, and a desire to play partisan politics with the lives of the American people. Even if the birth issue was brought up by a Democrat, that was four years ago, and the question has been answered. Also, you have to attract big money to survive in politics. Many people with money and influence still care what happens to our country.

  2. Your projection is missing some key points Brandt. You forget some key points about the genesis of the citizenship issue, namely, the questions about Obama’s citizenship that garnered national attention started with Hillary Clinton supporter, Phil Berg, who filed suit to block Obama’s nomination in 2008. Phil Berg is a Democrat.

    Other questions about Obama’s eligibility, different that questioning his birth place also arose, namely his adoption in Indonesia , his travel to Pakistan, etc. These questions arose out of his own writings. Remember also his publishers remarks about Obama that were never rebutted by the then author Obama all fueled this.

    So placing the blame for the questions on a news network or prejudice people is a revisionist account .

  3. You mean this Wall Street:

    Eighty wealthy and well-connected volunteer fundraisers, or bundlers , from the financial sector have together raised at least $11.8 million for Obama’s re-election campaign, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission data by the Center for Responsive Politics , a nonpartisan government watchdog.

    Individuals working in finance, insurance or real estate markets contributed roughly one-third of all money raised by Obama’s 244 bundlers –- more than any other industry –- the Center found .


    Yeah, that sounds like they’re really hostile towards him.

  4. If Obama loses the election, you can blame/thank Wall Street for bamboozling him. How is it right that an entire news network questions the President’s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country.
