Rasmussen: We’ll report on Iowa today

posted at 10:47 am on November 1, 2012 by

Today’s number from Rasmussen’s national poll is exactly what it has been all week — 49/47 Romney.  Due to Hurricane Sandy, Rasmussen hasn’t reported any numbers from its swing-state tracking poll since Monday.  At that time, Romney led 50/46.

They do make an interesting announcement, though, in their report — they plan on releasing a poll for Iowa later today.  Keep your eyes peeled.

If Rasmussen’s figures match Marist’s at all, I’d suggest Romney move on to greener pastures.

Like…Iowa?

Today’s number from Rasmussen’s national poll is exactly what it has been all week — 49/47 Romney.

Per Jay Cost; that poll has a D+3 sampling.

The closer it gets to looking like a win for Romney, the more worried I get that we’ll see a contested election.

President Obama has never apologized or admitted that he has made any mistakes during his career in politics. He has never “lost” much less done so with grace. Looking at how he handled the Republican surge in 2010 doesn’t bode well for how he’d handle losing a close election or even a landslide. I don’t know…someone talk me down from this ledge.

If it’s a landslide, which is shaping up, he won’t be able to contest realistically, no matter how much moaning and groaning there is.

The only way he could litigate his way to victory is if Romney wins a very narrow victory in OH – 1% or less – and fails to win any of PA, WI, NH, MI, IA, or NV. What’s shaping up is what appears to be at LEAST a comfortable Romney victory if not an outright landslide/wave election.

Romney should take at least some of the above states. I’ve got a good feeling about PA now despite being bearish on it for most of the election, and if that report from Ace’s yesterday is correct, we already have WI in the bag.

Frankly, the story of the election of 2012 that’s shaping up is that the pollsters went into the tank along with the MSM and annihilated their own credibility. At this point anything less than a comfortable Obama win will totally wreck their credibility.

Rasmussen has WI tied today at 49.

“Rasmussen has WI tied today at 49.

That’s not a new poll.

Geez…

Sorry, it’s from Monday, they mentioned it in the national poll breakdown. But you certainly are one to talk… taking an old poll of Missouri from the KC Star? Remember that one gumbo?

I wouldn’t use Marist for anything given their wacky samples.

I love how you have such concern where Romney spends his money in trying to defeat Obama. This is not an Obama board where the IQ are about 70 and they scoop up every BS nugget you feed them.

Conan on November 1, 2012 at 12:03 PM

All Marist has to do is change their likely voter screen to get 95% of registered voters or some other trick.

Marist isn’t under contract to NBC to tell them Obama is losing. They get their contract renewed to tell NBC what it wants if they want to keep their contract for polling.

Being WRONG about this election only matters to Marist if they predict a Romney victoryno an Obama loss.

I certainly agree with that. Not that it’ll do much to stop them. How many times has the MSM’s credibility been wrecked by obsessing over non-issues and ignoring major issues now?

Ras Iowa: Romney 49, Obama 48

Heard from a little birdie that Rasmussen’s Iowa poll will show that newspaper endorsements mean nothing.

Another day, another rotten battleground state poll for poor hapless Mitt.

D+4 actually, at least if Rasmussen is following the same habits they were last week, and the week before that. No detailed internals are being released because of the Hurricane, so we don’t really, “know,” at the moment.

gumbyandpokey hardest hit. LOL
