UPDATE: Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday, October 25, 2012
Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll’s results for Wednesday, October 24, 2012 indicates GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney is supported by 50% of the nation’s voters nationwide and President Barack Obama is supported by 46% for a second day in a row. Only 2% of those polled said they are choosing another candidate, and 2% say they are undecided.
The Third Presidential Debate of 2012
With the exception of very brief post-convention bounces, Monday was the first time in months that one candidate has been in the lead by more than 3%.
A new Ohio poll indicates that Obama is no longer leading in that all-important state. Romney and Obama are now tied in Ohio with 48% each.
It should be noted that the nightly poll results are part of a three-day average and, therefore, Monday night’s presidential debate in Boca Raton, Florida would only have one-third impact on this poll result at this time.
The most recent poll indicates that President Obama is currently receiving 82% of the support of his fellow-Democrats while Romney is receiving 89% of the Republican’s support. Concerning voters who are not affiliated with either of the two major parties, Mitt Romney has a nine-point advantage.
In other recent Rasmussen polls, Florida is currently favoring Romney with the former Governor of Massachusetts having 51% to Obama’s 46%. In Ohio, Obama and Romney’s are tied at 48% each. In Virginia, Romney leads with 50% to Obama’s 47%. And North Carolina favors Romney with 52% over Obama’s 46%.
In yet another Rasmussen poll, it is revealed that 48% of Americans believe the economy is getting worse.
A poll conducted this past week by Rasmussen also indicates that 51% of Americans believe the deadly attack of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, will harm Obama’s chances of getting reelected. Also, another new poll reveals that 56% of American consumers and investors believe the United States is in a recession.
The Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll has continually tracked the American voters’ preferences for the November 6 presidential election. Every day, the daily tracking poll is posted by 9:30 a.m. and includes a progressive history of the daily tracking poll results.
Of the many polls released throughout the election process, Rasmussen is one of very few that follows the desires of the electorate from day to day. Due to its extensive data collection process, Rasmussen is one of the most followed and respected presidential tracking polls.
In 2008, Rasmussen’s poll just prior to the election matched the final results in the national election.
