Rasmussen tracking poll puts Romney up 5, Santorum up 1 over Obama

posted at 1:05 pm on March 10, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll has good news for Republicans, and two of the Republican candidates.  The ongoing daily survey of 500 likely voters shows Barack Obama’s job approval at 44/54, the lowest since the end of December in this series, and both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have leads in head-to-head matchups:

Looking at Tuesday’s upcoming primaries, the GOP race in Alabama is essentially a three-way tie, while Mitt Romney leads by eight in Mississippi.   Nationally, Romney now leads Rick Santorum by 12 points.  Regardless of who they want to win, 80% of Republican Primary Voters nationwide believe Romney will be the party’s nominee.

With the perception growing that he will be the GOP nominee, Romney leads President Obama by five points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. Today’s numbers show Romney at 48%, Obama at 43%. That’s Romney’s largest lead since December. Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

If Santorum is the Republican nominee, he is up by one point over the president, 46% to 45%. This is the second time since polling began in 2011 that Santorum has had a slight lead over Obama. Romney is the only other candidate to lead the president more than one time in the polls. See tracking history   for Obama vs. all four Republican candidates.

Obama still beats Newt Gingrich by eight points (48/40) and Ron Paul by two (43/41), but Obama’s position has eroded against three of the four Republicans over the last few weeks.  A month ago, Obama led Romney by 10, 50/40, and Romney’s 48% today is his strongest in the series.  Against Santorum, Obama led by eight at the same time (49/41), and Santorum’s 46% is also his best in the series.  Three weeks ago against Gingrich, Obama led 51/37, but Gingrich hasn’t come close to his peak in the series of 48% at the beginning of January.  Two weeks ago Paul hit 43% for his best showing and eclipsed Obama by two, but that has been the only lead he has had in head-to-head matchups.

As I’ve noted on several occasions, these kind of matchups are apples-to-oranges comparisons, as Democrats are already united behind Obama as a nominee.  The internal divisions of a primary will handicap each Republican in the matchup, and yet Obama can’t stay above either Romney or Santorum, and now has dropped behind Romney farther than the MOE.  When Republicans finally unite behind a candidate, this suggests that Obama will find himself even more at a disadvantage, and that the election still continues to be a referendum on his performance.

All the Mormons who voted for Mormon en bloc are bigots too, if we go down this road of stupid logic.

Dr. Tesla on March 10, 2012 at 3:15 PM

I’m pretty sure a politician who will say and do anything for votes played up his Mormonism in Nevada and other states with large number of Mormons. Thats Romney in a nutshell.

Dr. Tesla on March 10, 2012 at 3:08 PM

No need.

Mormons will block vote for any Mormon why Reid wins Nevada. Join the church and get the Mormon vote. Though Mitt was born a member.

Obama was 50% last week or so.

This poll is a one-off

liberal4life on March 10, 2012 at 1:16 PM

One-off: something that is not repeated or reproduced

Your argument might be more convincing if the daily tracking poll wasn’t reported on a 3-day rolling average. Also, keep in mind that Rasmussen only surveys people who are likely to vote. Obama always does better in surveys of “all adults” than he does with likely voters.

The only people who care about the Rush-Fluke thing are either Rush fans or people who really hate Rush. In my view, if you give details about your sex life to Congress, people are free to characterize your sex life as they see fit. 3000 dollars in 3 years on birth control is an absurd amount of money, and Rush was in truth calling her a liar not a slut.

Dr. Tesla on March 10, 2012 at 3:20 PM

liberal4life on March 10, 2012 at 3:20 PM

It’s still identiy politics if Romney goes after them or not. He benefited in Nevada and probably Arizona and Utah and Idaho b/c of he’s Mormon. My point to the romney zombies is i odn’t want to hear you complain if some christians don’t go for Romney b/c he’s mormon.

Dr. Tesla on March 10, 2012 at 3:21 PM

I’ll be honest, I don’t care if the only reason Obama loses this time is b/c white racists turned out in droves, as long as he loses, I’m good with it. I do not care what you reason for voting against Obama is as longn as you are voting against Obama.

But I thought the talking points of the mainstream media is that Obama is becoming a lock for re-election and Democrats will re-take the House..

Anyway, it’s nice to see that the primary fight is not hurting Romney’s chance of beating Obama, and the media’s attempt to make Obama’s re-election seem inevitable is not working.

After all, if anybody should have had the inside track in gaining the establishment’s support, it should have been those old Washington hands, Gingrich or Santorum. Romney is the real outsider here, and he got no help from the establishment in 2008….

ghostwriter on March 10, 2012 at 4:26 PM

You remember last week, when the MSM and its allies were doing cartwheels over the “inevitability” of 0bama’s re-election? That celebration was meaningless because elections are held in November, not March.

The same rule applies to this poll: let’s not go getting over-confident because as the Fluke affair shows, the left can and will go to any lengths to stave off defeat of the One, and there is too much time left between now and November to assume Soetoro is toast.

I’ll celebrate on November 7 when Barry is officially defeated, and not until then.

I posted this in the Green Room but this applies here as well:

It just hit me about Hot Air as I am reading this article…it never ONCE mentions what is RIGHT with Romney and WHY he is in FIRST PLACE! Almost every article written about Romney on this site is ALMOST ALWAYS what is wrong with Romney and yet he continues to win Primaries and Caucuses DEFYING ALL of these articles. Maybe HA needs to realize the meme they keep pushing is NOT how Americans really feel about Romney because the FACTS say differently by their votes.

Karl, take this comment back to the board room with you and Allah, Ed, Tina, et al and maybe have a paradigm shift that your articles DO NOT REPRESENT what is actually happening out there. I do not care what polls say as people can say whatever they want in a poll. People speak with their VOTE and they are voting for Romney. So let’s start writing articles on WHY people are voting for Romney…heck, it could even be they are voting AGAINST Obama but Romney definitely has appeal DESPITE what HA writes or projects. :o)

If they’re that easily manipulated, they aren’t going to vote Republican anyway, no matter who the candidate is. If it wasn’t this silly issue, it will be some other silly issue fabricated by the dems. Basically simple minded voters like you and the ones you described are owned by the democrats.

ghostwriter on March 11, 2012 at 10:00 PM

Actually (if I may be regarded as a “Mittbot” for supporting his candidacy), my argument for Romney and against Santorum is that Santorum is a fiscal GOP liberal, loves earmarks and mindless Federal spending, big government, adventuresome foreign military policy to a remarkably tone-deaf degree, and only adds kook-fringe social policy positions to all of that centrist-business-as-usual-Murkowski-ism, making him essentially a pro-life Scott Brown.

No thanks. I have grave doubts about Romney’s philosophy (I don’t think he has one), but I imagine him to be measurably more conservative on the issue most important to me — the economy. I think I would rather have Ron Paul than Santorum.

Jaibones on March 10, 2012 at 1:25 PM

The problem with calling Santorum a liberal is that you’re trying to call Romney a conservative. The only way that Romney’s more conservative fiscally than Santorum is if you consider someone who addresses budget deficits by raising taxes to be a fiscal conservative.

Given that every time politicians raise taxes, spending rises to consume the new revenue and then some, I would consider it fiscally foolish to raise taxes without first cutting spending.

Romney, on the other hand, will just raise fees all around so he can claim he’s not raising taxes. I see no reason to believe he’s anything but a tax-and-spend fiscal liberal.

When it comes to fiscal conservatism, Santorum is miles ahead of Romney.

There Goes The Neighborhood on March 12, 2012 at 2:12 AM

This was interesting: Romney’s answer on the Rick and Bubba show when asked if Mormons believe America is the new promised land:

The candidate then spoke about the size of the government and how to reduce spending for most of the interview, save for the last question, which returned to the original question on faith Romney had dodged. “Do you, as a Mormon, believe America is the new promised land?”

“You’re going to have to go talk to the Church and ask what they think about that!” Romney replied, laughing, adding that “there’s no question that Israel is the promised land” but that his best guess was that “other lands are promised to other people.”

Interesting, because of course Mormons very much believe the promised land is in this country. Technically, they believe that Zion is in Missouri based on prophecies by Joseph Smith, but they modified those prophecies to Utah after being thrown out of Missouri.

So why did Romney try to weasel out of the question by dismissing it as, “other lands are promised to other people.”

A very disingenuous answer.

Did you read the links I gave to you PROVING the establishment news media SHILLED for Romney in 2008? Nevermind. You are about as smart as a Snapple bottle and I’m not wasting time going back and forth with you

People like you make it really tough to be polite on the Internet. You can use all caps and call people dumb if you like, but it doesn’t make your argument any better or any more correct. In fact it’s pretty weak that you have to resort to name-calling. Your little link doesn’t prove a blessed thing, but it’s pointless to discuss it with you.

At any rate, I refuse to sink to your level. Don’t talk to me anymore. You have very little of interest to offer, and I’m not inclined to suffer your rotten manners and constant whining.

First off, you responded to me first. I didn’t respond to you, OK. Second, anyone that says “Romney is the real outsider here, and he got no help from the establishment in 2008″ is the definition of a “RINO Zombie” man, a real life Zombie. I just call it when I see it

Do we need any more evidence that Romney is the most electable?
