Just a mere 21 weeks to go until the November election and Republican Tea Party (GOTP) “it’s my turn” bully-boy Willard Mitt Romney is continuing to try to paint himself as the next Ronald Reagan, even though he’s only barely managed to garner the majority of votes in the GOTP nomination circus with the final three primaries – something that’s never happened in the history of primaries, and something which clearly demonstrates his “popularity”.
Clearly, while it’s true Willard’s finally managed to capture the majority of votes in the nominating process he’s certainly the least popular candidate of choice by a major political party in quite some time; even when he’s the only guy still running, Republican/Tea Party voters still cast nearly 400,000 ballots for anyone but him, speaking loud and clear that while he’s won his party’s nomination a lot of the party’s members still think he sucks.
So, how does the GOTP candidate stand up against the President?
According to the latest polls showing favorability of the candidates, Monmouth/SurveyUSA/Braun poll of likely voters shows the President with a 45% favorability rating compared to Romney’s 38%. Like’s been said a number of times by lots of people, “the more people get to see of Romney the less they like him”, and sooner or later he’s going to have to start giving interviews to some other network besides FOX.
So, who’s more electable right now?
In the most recent viable’ poll(s) – which are any group other than FOX News or Rasmussen and the Purple Strategies which is also beginning to look suspect in some of its polling numbers (which are appearing very skewed) – the most current Reuters/Ipsos poll of registered voters conducted 7-11 Jun 12, if the general election were held today:
President Obama 45/Romney 44
The most recent Gallup Tracking poll of registered voters conducted 5-11 Jun 12, if the general election were held today:
President Obama 46/Romney 45
And finally, the most recent IBD/CSM/TIPP poll of registered voters conducted 1-8 Jun 12, if the general election were held today:
President Obama 46/Romney 42
If the general election was held today, Willard Mitt Romney still loses to President Obama in the general election.
How big would Willard lose? Well, if the General Election were held today, the Electoral College totals based on all available current poll numbers:
