Fox News poll: Romney 46, Obama 44

posted at 9:49 pm on April 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

This is, I think, the first national poll conducted since Romney was unofficially crowned GOP nominee, which means it’s obligatory blog material even though I’m not sure what it tells us. Ace points to it as a reminder that after all the yelling about Etch-a-Sketch and Hilary Rosen is done, voters will ask themselves one question: “Do I want to sign up for a repeat of the last four years or do I want a chance at something different?” But that’s really just saying that the election will come down to the state of the economy in the fall (which is true). If it’s picking up, voters will take it as proof that they won’t get a repeat of the last four years even if they give O a second term. If it isn’t, they’ll conclude otherwise. What this poll proves, I guess, is that Romney’s fully capable of winning this race as long as The One ends up with no “recovery” trump card to play on him.

Here’s a mighty tasty bit of data from the crosstabs, though:

Note the spread among indies and among women, where it’s much narrower than you’d expect given the Democrats’ “gender gap” advantage. In fact, Obama led Romney head to head on various intangibles polled — who’s smarter, more trustworthy, more honest — but on this killer Q, Romney’s already got a notable lead. That’ll shrink if unemployment does, but it’s nice to start with that advantage.

More:

The poll shows the gender gap may not solely be a problem for the Republican candidate. Women are more likely to back Obama (by 49-41 percent), while men are even more likely to give their support to Romney (by 52-38 percent). The 2008 Fox News national exit poll showed women voted for Obama over Republican John McCain by 13 percentage points (56-43 percent). Historically, exit poll results show women have consistently backed the Democrat over the Republican in presidential elections.

Obama’s overall job approval rating stands at 42 percent, down from 47 percent last month. The drop comes mainly from Democrats: 80 percent approve now, down from 86 percent in March. A 51 percent majority of voters disapproves of the job Obama is doing.

News of a stalled economic recovery has likely contributed to the decline in the president’s approval.

If you’re tired of the “war on women” nonsense, and we all are, look on the bright side: It’s a battle being fought by Democrats defensively, on their own turf. They’ve all but given up on winning men from Romney; their best bet for reelection is to try to offset his advantage with males by building an advantage just as big with women voters. That’s what all the pandering lately is about, and that’s why Romney’s rolling out his own strategy aimed at women. He doesn’t need to win the demographic, just to keep it close so that men carry him over the finish line. Hopefully Rosengate helped a little.

There are polls and there are polls. It is the one in Nov 12 that counts. But Romney and his team have been quick to react and effectively punching Barry every chance he can. Let’s work to throw Barry out on his ears.

Obama has been creating landmines to step on in the past few weeks.

He is running a very poor campaign. Almost as bad as McCain did against him in 2008 so far.

If he’d show some contrition, quit demonizing his opponents, and vow to try harder, he’d do better than what he’s getting inventing straw men, refusing to accept ANY responsibility…

In other words, he’s his own worst enemy.

But it’s a Fox News Poll!

Actually, after Faux came into existence in the late 1990s their polling back then countless times had Bill Clinton’s Job Approval at or slightly above many other polls taken around the same time. Go figure.

I hate having to root against the economy in order to get Barack kicked to the curb, but dammit — root I will.

If you’re tired of the “war on women” nonsense, and we all are, look on the bright side: It’s a battle being fought by Democrats defensively, on their own turf. They’ve all but given up on winning men from Romney; their best bet for reelection is to try to offset his advantage with males by building an advantage just as big with women voters.

If the numbers on Election Day look anything like this poll, Obama is screwed. Granted, women may turn out in higher numbers than men, but it would have to be a huge difference in order to make up that deficit among male voters. And God help Barry if Romney manages to close that gap down to maybe 4 or 5 points.

I am curious to see what other polls say once a few more days have passed since Rosengate. Especially from polls that have realistic samples unlike that WaPo/ABC embarrassment from earlier in the week.

Doughboy on April 12, 2012 at 10:00 PM

I think Romney will be able to compete with Obama in raising money for the campaign. Probably not quite as much but there is no way Obama is going to have the cash advantage he had 4 years ago

steel guy on April 12, 2012 at 10:01 PM

It’s nice to be ahead this early, but polls don’t mean squat until both conventions are over with, the candidates have had their bounces, and Labor Day is in the rearview mirror. I think Romney will win, but I’m not breaking out the bubbly yet.

nazo311 on April 12, 2012 at 10:04 PM

As I have mentioned 20 times before – 2012 will be 1980 redux.

The delegate math will not be the same – but Romney will win comfortably.

A far left ideologue, with a down and floundering economy – boasted by artificial economic “news”, while avoiding the reality of America. OH – and a bogus cadre of ABC/IPSOS/USA Today/MSNBC “polls” that need to be manipulated for a specific narrative.

Americans vote Republican when we need to make money, a Democrat when we need to spend it. Also why only 1 Dem (Clinton) has been reelected since FDR.

Bradky on April 12, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Even so, the strength of party support in the matchup is dead even: 85 percent of Democrats back Obama and 85 percent of Republican back Romney.

Among the highly sought after group of independents, the poll found 43 percent back Romney and 37 percent Obama. Nearly one in four independent voters (21 percent) is undecided or won’t vote for either of the major party candidates. Last month, independents split evenly between Obama and Romney at 40 percent each. In February, Romney had a 9-point advantage.

that is telling …. from the poll …

conservative tarheel on April 12, 2012 at 10:10 PM

There is some evidence that more women vote than men do, 60 something percent of women vote and 50 something percent of men vote. That means the men are letting us down, and republicans should be reaching out to men as well as trying to bring women in.

Some men need encouragement to get that absentee ballot. If you are a guy and you know guys who are not registered to vote at their current address, you know what to do. Ask your friends, if they are registered, ask them if they know they can vote ahead of time.

Ask them to vote republican this time in case it matters. It would be a good thing not to have this election be a squeaker, but a win by a large margin. This advice would be especially helpful if you live in a battleground state.

And if you have friends, guys in a union, who think well they just won’t vote if they are told to vote dem. Tell them what we all know, the dems will screw them LATER, just not before the election. They must know that. Look at Massachusetts where the Democrat governor was allowed to do what Scott Walker was forbidden to do? And in NYS, Gov. Cuomo II is chiseling away at union bennies, and the union there is shocked shocked. But no recall vote, because, after all he is a dem.

Fleuries on April 12, 2012 at 10:10 PM

I give. I’ll crawl naked over broken glass, in the desert with ants all over me to vote for Romney, just to get the dark Smeigal out of there—and to quit seeing his smug mug on HA. If Romney is a disappointment we’ll address that at a date to be determined.

Obama’s overall job approval rating stands at 42 percent, down from 47 percent last month. The drop comes mainly from Democrats: 80 percent approve now, down from 86 percent in March.

I find this to be astonishing. I know many Democrats. And there’s no way in hell that 80% of the Dems I know approve of the job he’s doing. No. Way.

Now, many of them will still be voting for Obama. Without a doubt. But that’s a different cat than approving of the job he’s doing.

Am I just hanging out with the wrong group of Dems? Is the rest of this demographic really as stupid as a stump to be giving this guy an 80% job approval rating?

nukemhill on April 12, 2012 at 10:11 PM

We’ll know early on election night. If Pennsylvania goes red, it’ll be a landslide. If it is very close Romney will win. If it stays blue we can just blame the “anybody but Romney” people since they have repeatedly told us they’d rather have Barack by not voting for Mittens.

I have said this on several other threads-the key figure is where Obama is. The undecideds always break big for the challenger-around 80 percent. If Obama is below 50 he is in trouble. If he is at 44-45, it will be a blow out for Romney.

Not true. Well it’s true that Obama being under 50% is bad for him but if we look at the late polling in 2004 Bush was at 48.9% in the RCP average and he took 50.7% of the popular vote (a 1.8% boost) and Kerry was at 47.4% in RCP and took 48.3% of the popular vote (0.9% greater than he had been doing). Judging by that the undecideds went 2:1 for the incumbent.

Oh, and we were talking about NJ earlier this week. Well there was a poll released today showing Obama only up by 9 over Romney and Menendez only up by single digits as well over Kyrillis.

President Romney has a nice ring to it.

milcus on April 12, 2012 at 10:23 PM

Setting aside Romeny’s number, I’m stunned that Obama is pulling a mid-40 in any poll.

Given the corruption, open dishonesty, mistreatment of women, hostility towards Americans, corruption, racism, scandals, spending sprees, open disregard for the Constitution, record unemployment, record foreclosures, record food stamp recipients, “do nothing” senate, blame game and excuse making democrats, it is beyond belief that there are *that* many dumb Americans.

Apparently the media is doing a hell of a job keeping a lid on all this stuff.

Imagine if democrats were as good at creating jobs and doing something positive for the country as they are at deceiving fools?

One hopes the brain rot that went along with Romney Derangement Syndrome is reversible and can be fixed before November.

You have more faith than I do. I always come back to this: Anyone — anyone — can come out and say something totally false — and totally damaging — about a GOP candidate, and he/she is lionized by the press and the democrat party. But if someone comes out and tells the truth about the democrat candidate, the media and democrat party will destroy him/her, so no one ever does. Why has no one ever come out from Obama’s past to talk about him? Why have none of Barack’s hidden documents been leaked? How come no one has ever spoken about (not) working with Moochelle at her no-show $300,000 job (bribe to her senator husband)? Because they and their families will be threatened, fired, destroyed. But people will be coming out of the woodwork to slander Romney. Steel yourself.

Larry Conners, the host who hammered Barry, will have his tax returns audited for the last 10 years.

Obama: ZERO. People who vote for Obama: ZERO. MSM: ZERO. 4 to 5 of the Supreme Court Justices? ZERO.

the incumbent president is always hard to beat. even the unlikeable ones like Nixon and W won re-election by bigger margins then their first elections.

Michele Bachmann was on Cavuto Biz channel (I am watching the DVR now). She just made a good point. She said this poll was Monday through Wednesday and Santorum didn’t make his announcement until Tuesday afternoon. She expects this new state of the race will be reflected in the next poll in Romney’s favor. When you put the WAR ON MOMS on top of that, there might be a larger split next week.

we need poll sample expert Ed Morrissey to break down the demos! or does he only do that for polls where he doesn’t like the outcome?

DBear on April 12, 2012 at 10:25 PM

Hey dummy, a poll is scinetific in the statistical sense. When it reflects the actual voting/registerd/adults, etc by demo matchup – there is no reason to pick apart the artificial tabs, ala every left outlet.

i.e. a poll is taken at face value unless it is purposely manipulated and not adjusted to reflect the true sample.

I see you are so used to bogus polls that Ed (and any other person with an iota of statistical polling ) picks apart…

So as dumb as you are – I assume, without question that you are a biped; in the same way I take a poll at face value – until its bogus.

The only legit reason someone would have for asking others what a blog post says would be blindness.

This is not a conservative website. It’s moderate at best with a handful of conservative commentators. They choose the pics deliberately to try to rile people up.

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich shouldn’t be this close against this guy.

Cleombrotus on April 12, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Folks, Obama isn’t going to win. Voters are pretty dumb and uninformed, but they’re not that dumb and uninformed. Reality comes into play at some point.

therightwinger on April 12, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Just to think of the glorious day where we could wipe that smug, superior, condescending, patronizing, uctuous look off of his stupid, worthless face.

Sticking it to some mythical GOP establishment, is small beer in comparison.

A beautiful, rational post.

Hope was reborn today. You can see it on the boards. We are ready to fight hard against our tool of a president and give it to someone that just might be worthy of that title.
