Dead heat: Obama 46%, Romney 46%

September 23, 2012

By Rasmussen Reports

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

When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 48% and Romney 47%. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question.

Consumer confidence has moved up to within two points of its 2012 high. Forty percent (40%) now believe the economy is getting better. That’s the most optimistic assessment in seven years. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Democrats believe the economy is getting better, while 67% of Republicans believe it is getting worse. Among those not affiliated with either party, 30% say better and 48% worse.

Almost all the gains in confidence have come from investors. The confidence of non-investors is little changed.

    This should tell us something, that 46% percent of the population have not respect for the Constitution, a free America, or the American way of life, and believe that the government should control our lives and be responsible for our daily existence. Amazing how quickly this country has become a cesspool of worthless humans. Goodbye to America, the land that I loved!
