Gallup: Romney leads Obama by 2

April 16, 2012

Confirming Rasmussen and Fox News:

Mitt Romney is supported by 47% of national registered voters and Barack Obama by 45% in the inaugural Gallup Daily tracking results from April 11-15. Both Obama and Romney are supported by 90% of their respective partisans.

Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party's candidate and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney were the Republican Party's candidate, who would you vote for? April 2012 results


Gallup’s previous general election trial heat, from a national poll conducted March 25-26, showed Obama with a slight 49% to 45% lead over Romney.

And what’s changed in the last three weeks? The Trayvon Martin case, of course!

Also note that Romney voters are more eager to vote than Obama voters:

I'd like you to rate your chances of voting in November's election for president on a scale of 1 to 10. If "1" represents someone who definitely will not vote, and "10" represents someone who definitely will vote, where on this scale of 1 to 10 would you place yourself? April 2012 results

    And somehow CNN comes out with a Poll showing a SURGING lead for Obama.

    Gee. I wonder if it could just POSSIBLY be manipulated.

    Barack Hussein Obama Will Win Re-Election (Part One)

    As difficult as it is to concede, barring a disaster or intercession by an almighty power, President Barack Hussein Obama will win re-election on November 6th. The final vote tally will be far from a landslide but a sufficient proportion of the electorate will ensure the president serves another disastrous term.

    That prediction is based on a variety of factors not the least of which is the widely-held expectation that Obama and all the president’s men and women will wage the dirtiest campaign since the populist Andrew Jackson beat the Democrat-Republican John Quincy Adams in 1828.

    Obama will also win on a populist platform predicated on calculated distortions and misrepresentations supplemented by his hole cards of racial and class warfare and he will be bankrolled with a billion dollar campaign treasury.

    However, the principal reason he will emerge victorious is not the nefarious tactics he and his minions will employ but that he has locked up various constituencies which will cast Democrat ballots because they almost always have and despite compelling reasons to vote otherwise.

    Those constituencies in order of Democrat allegiance:

    . African-Americans. Understandably, blacks chose a fellow, if semi, African-American in 2008 because, well, because he was almost black. If I were a black man, I would have supported him simply because of his race and centuries of oppression and disenfranchisement. However, the second time around, I would have supported the candidate who would best serve the interests of the country.

    Thirteen percent of the electorate, fully 96% of blacks, voted for Obama four years ago versus 43 percent of whites. While the 96% was anticipated, the 43% reflected the amazing number of “white guilters” who felt it was time for a minority presence in the White House regardless of his lack of qualifications and experience as belated recompense for the enslavement of Obama’s forebears.

    In spite of the fact the president has done as little for blacks–aside from hiring them in record numbers and for highly visible positions–as he has for other races, the African-American community is a sure bet to go for Obama in 2012 by margins approximating 2008 particularly but not exclusively due to his politicizing the tragic death of Trayvon Martin.

    Chalk up around 13% for Obama.

    . Jewish Americans. Jews are by nature and history liberal since they have been discriminated against even longer than blacks. They have endured oppression and slavery for thousands of years, and have been Democrats for as long as there has been an America.

    Nevertheless, there is ample cause for Jews to abandon their loyalties to the Democrat Party this year , . . .

    “The media wrote a narrative at the beginning of the primary season that Ron Paul could never win the nomination. That likely affected his performance in subsequent primaries. The new media narrative says that the nomination race is over and Romney has it locked up. That conflicts with the facts. Voters in upcoming primaries should know that this race is far closer than they’re being led to believe.”

    The race is over. Paul cannot win.

    It will stay this way so long as Romney doesn’t speak. No debates no interview no appearances, and just runs ads and hope its enough.

  6. Ron Paul will NEVER be the GOP nominee on April 17, 2012 at 9:02 am

    Ron Paul will NEVER be the GOP nominee

    That’s funny, cause Romney just did an interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC.
