Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 14 Aug 12 Edition

14 Aug

Twelve weeks to go until the November election and the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wanna-be Willard Mitt Romney’s decided to try to shake things up by selecting Tea Party (TP) darling Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, and he’s still trying to dodge the need to release his tax records, but now it seems he’s required his VP candidates to release many years of tax records to his campaign before he could select them, nothing like hypocrisy on a grand level.

So, how does the GOTP candidate stand up against the President?

The last favorability CNN/Opinion Research poll of registered voters conducted from 7 – 8 Aug 12, showed the President with a 54% favorability rating compared to Romney’s 48%.

So, who’s more electable right now?

In the most recent viable’ national poll(s) – which are any group other than the Washington Times or Rasmussen (which are generally always skewed not just to the right, but far to the right) – the most current IBD/CSM/TIPP poll of registered voters conducted 3 – 10 Aug 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 46/Romney 39

The most recent CNN/Opinion Research poll of registered voters conducted 7 – 8 Aug 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 52/Romney 45

And finally, the most recent Reuters/Ipsos poll of registered voters conducted 2 – 6 Aug 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 49/Romney 42

If the general election was held today, according to national polls, Willard Mitt Romney loses to President Obama in the general election.

According to state polls, if the General Election were held TODAY (note these are based on current poll numbers – not projections), the Electoral College totals based on all available current poll numbers the President defeats Romney 347/191:

Results of 15 consecutive simulations based on poll data as of 14 Aug 12

Obama 319/219
Obama 297/241
Obama 295/243
Obama/Romney 269/269
Obama 317/221

Obama 287/251
Obama 274/264
Obama 318/220
Obama 292/246
Obama 279/259

Romney 273/265
Obama 332/206
Obama 314/224
Obama 291/247
Romney 277/261

Of 15 simulations Romney manages only two victories and one tie, while the President not only beats Romney but beats him by a landslide more than half the time defeating Romney 12/3.

    CNN is a liberal media that has refused to report on the Obama administration’s shady dealings with radical muslems, communists, the Occupy Movement, and socialists, CNN is clearly tipping the balance in Obama’s favor just to try and sway popular opinion. If Fox News- a Conservative news media- gets nearly twice the ratings as CNN, then why are we expected to believe that slothful, pothead liberals outnumber the working class by such a great margin? This poll is just another of many, many lies perpetrated by the Left. It has been said for many years that the Rassmussen Report has always been the most accurate poll, so don’t try to convince us otherwise. I’m not high, therefore I don’t believe you.

      I’m going to go out on a limb and assume you get your news from FOX, and listen to talk radio most of the day when you’re not reading Breitbart? Only someone who was incredibly politically obtuse would fail to see how Rasmussen and Washington Times polling in no way reflect reality.
