Election 2012: President Obama vs Mitt Romney.
The Rasmussen poll on Monday, October 28, 2012 showed Mitt Romney leads president Obama 49 to 47 percent among likely voters .
The Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49 percent of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 47 percent. One percent prefers some other candidate, and another two percent remain undecided.
New Poll showed fifty-four percent of voters still favor repeal of the president’s health care law. That matches the support for repeal found the week after the law was passed in March 2010. It is truly remarkable how stable public opinion has remained on this issue. Eighty percent of voters believe repeal of the health care law is likely if Romney is elected and Republicans take control of Congress.
Rasmussen poll showed Support for repeal is driven in part by the belief of 50 percent of voters that the cost of health care cost will go up as a result of the law. Also, 50 percent believe the law will increase the federal deficit. Hardly anybody believes the law will lead to lower health care costs or reduce the deficit.
Poll showed that in the Florida Senate race, Republican Congressman Connie Mack has pulled within three points of incumbent Senator Bill Nelson. That shifts the race from leans Democrat to a toss-up in the Rasmussen Reports Senate Balance of power rankings. In addition to Florida, Rasmussen Reports currently rates five other senate races as toss-ups: Connecticut, Montana, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. Weather permitting, new data will be released on the Connecticut Senate race and the Montana Senate race later today. At least one of those races will move out of the toss-up column.
New Poll shows that in the battle for the White House, the Rasmussen reports electoral college projections now show the president with 237 Electoral Votes and Romney 206. The magic number needed to win the White House is 270. Eight states with 95 Electoral College votes remain Toss-ups: Colorado, Florida,Iowa,Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. New data for Ohio will be released later today.
Scott Rasmussen suggests in his weekly newspaper column that Wisconsin May Be the New Ohio this year. If Mitt Romney loses Ohio, he would have to win Wisconsin in order to move into the White House. That’s why all the presidential and vice-presidential candidates have visited the state in recent days.
