The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 50% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 47%. Two percent (2%) prefers some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.

These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, approximately one-third of the interviews for today’s update were completed before the end of Monday night’s presidential debate. Tomorrow morning (Friday) will be the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the final debate.

All the Benghazi bullsh*t is just to distract voter's attention, away from the fact that Romney is just a shiny, empty suit....a smiling, glad-handing vacant space....full of false promises and plans without specifics.....they just want your vote, so don't look to close.....

Mitt Romney will say what his audience wants to hear.
He is a leader in the MORMON religion. His religion CLEARLY states that no woman is to enter thekingdom of God unless the man allows it!!!!
Five boys and NONE in the military??? HMMM?
In Massachusetts Mitt HIRED illegal immigrants to paint and to landscape his property over American workers.
In Business he hidesbehind his "blind trust" as he states "My blind trust invest my money as I do not know where it is invested"!
So, would he be SHOCKED to find out that the coincidence that he went from earning 2 Million a year to 20 Million a year also COINCIDES with the MASSIVE outsourcing of AMERICAN JOBS?????
The recession began in 2002 as did the massive outsourcing of American jobs!!!!!!!
MITT ROMNEY EARNED HIS MILLIONS DIRECTLY AS A RESULT OF THE OUTSOURCING OF AMERICAN JOBS TO CHINA!!!
FACTS!!!!! How could ANY patriotic American vote for Mitt Romney????? It isnot acoincidence that Massachusetts is voting Romney out!!!!
BHO oversees the deconstruction of America with mIllions of jobs lost and a runaway recession with no end in sight. Lethargy and pessimism are running rampant to the point where one longs for the misery of the Carter Administration. And what does the inept Left focus on? The negatives of capitalism. The Left knows nothing about real-world economics, capital formation or growth. They only know Keynesian government theory, failed Marxist ideology and centralized control (as long as they're in charge). It's almost too funny to watch.

Bain Capital saved many American companies from Burger King to Staples, Sports Authroity and many others. American jobs were saved. Can't say the same about BHO! Solar jobs to China!

I'm surprised he's doing that well in MA. Hell, the MA Senate is 36 D's vs. 4 R's, so what the hell do you expect? In other words, MA doesn't matter.

The Washington Post is run by morons because only morons would want to reelect the worst president in history(and who was a weaker candidate than John Kerry in 2008 but who didn't get vetted enough so people didn't realize that).

I guess it all goes without saying when you consider who's been endorsed by whom. Most people respect the opinions of Bill Clinton & Colin Powell and laugh at those offered by Donald Trump & John Sununu. It's a no-brainer but repugnantcans aren't exactly known for their higher-order thinking skills.

The faceless lying reporters of the Washington Post represent the sinking of America to lawlessness, corruption which is leading America over the cliff. The fact that the Washington Post is ‘partner in crime’ of fooling the American people by mysterious dictator with foreign agenda Barack Hussein Obama is the reason for the falling apart of America. Excuses and more excuses of Obama and the Pentagon that make no sense whatsoever. Undoubtedly, the apologizer in chief Obama is responsible for the failure of US military to protect the lives of US Ambassador and three US Seals while he knew about the al Qaida attack two hours after the eight hours attack started and refused to do anything to save their lives. There is plenty of evidence to show that Ambassador Stevens was in major danger after previous attacks by al Qaida on the British consulate and based on Stevens begging for security help. However, Obama refused to save the lives of US Ambassador and three US Seals who fought for their lives during 8 hours in which Obama did nothing whatsoever even if he could. Obama is also behind a major cover-up of the al Qaida attack and lying to the American people about American video was the reason for the attack on US Embassy during demonstration that never occurred. Clearly, Obama excuses for the cover up, lies in bold face to the American people time and again and deceiving the world while failing to do what he supposed to do is reason for impeachment as failed commander in chief.

LOL! If y'all believe all the trash you continue to spew, why do you get so upset about it all? Majority of comments from repugnantcans are angry and foul or furious and obscene; kind of truckdriver bully type. No class. In comparison, comments from supporters of President Obama are cool, calm, informed and realistic.
Do y'all realize the impression you make or do you just not care? It really has a heavy-duty affect on your credibility.

EDITORIAL: Stop believing in Obama
The last four years have been a disaster, another four won’t be any better ...

Barack Obama’s closing argument for his re-election requires a declaration of faith.“I believe in you,” he told a crowd of supporters Wednesday.“I need you to keep believing in me.”

Regrettably, four years of failure leave precious little to believe in.
