Friday, September 21, 2012

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Obama attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.

When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 49% and Romney 46%. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question.

New state polling shows the president up three in Wisconsin and up two in Nevada. Romney has a slight advantage in Iowa. Over the past week, Rasmussen Reports has also released new numbers for Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, New Hampshire and Missouri. For a full summary, check out the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.

Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

Prospects for a Republican takeover of the Senate are becoming less likely. Two states that were recently leaning in the GOP direction are now Toss-ups. In the Wisconsin Senate race, Democrat Tammy Baldwin leads Republican Tommy Thompson. The Nevada Senate race is essentially even.

Sixty-four percent (64%) of Americans believe too many people in this country are dependent upon government.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will be Scott Rasmussen’s first guest this weekend on What America Thinks, his nationally syndicated television show. Walker will address his polarized polling numbers and more. A longer interview also will be released online early next week. This weekend’s show, available on more than 60 stations nationwide, will include a look at whether Wisconsin is really in play for Election 2012. Joining Scott for that discussion will be advocate Scott Ross of One Wisconsin Now and conservative strategist Deb Jordahl whose clients include the governor.

Scott’s weekly newspaper column notes that “63 percent of Republican voters believe their representatives in Washington are out of touch with the party base.” He adds that while “the establishment has dominated the party since Reagan left the White House, the 2012 election could well be the end of the line.”

 Pretty much the same as last week and the week before. I don't look for any change until the debates
