Mitt Romney Ties President Obama in National Poll

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

As President Barack Obama enjoys a ten day vacation at a $50,000 week private farm on Martha’s Vineyard, a new Public Policy Polling survey offers sobering numbers for the president’s reelection bid.

According to the survey, President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied among voters nationally, 45% to 45%.

Obama fairs slightly better against Gov. Rick Perry, 49% to 43%, and smashes Michele Bachmann, 50% to 42%.

The economy and jobs, cited as the number one concern by all Americans, could sink President Obama’s reelection hopes. Obama squandered precious time pandering to Republicans and the Tea Party on the budget bill.

At this late point — the general election is only fourteen months from now, Obama has little time to effectively focus his energies on the issue the American people care most about – the economy and jobs.

    I’ve said for three years that Obama and his economic team read the tea leaves wrong by focusing on healthcare while 18 million Americans were unemployed. Then, remarkably, what we got with all the bells and whistles and fanfare was a healthcare bill that included neither single payer or an expansion of Medicare. I’m no economist but it seems to me if the economy is healthy again and this means unemployment under 6%, Obama would’ve had more financial leeway to create a healthcare bill much better than what we got. Oh well. Get ready to say, President-elect Romney.

    If I didn’t know better I might think President Obama is ready to return to Chicago?

    He’s sure as shit isn’t doing anything to guarantee his reelection chances. Worst of all, each of his decisions seem intended to taunt and humiliate his political base. It’s as if he’s trying to see how far he can go and still rally the troops at the 11th hour? Come from behind and win it?

    I think he’s playing a fool’s game and he’s going to lose.

  3. Romney or Obama…is there really any difference? It’s win win for the Corporations either way.

    Bush, Obama, Romney, what does it matter? Pissed on Politics is correct.

    Bush was the best friend Big Oil ever had. Obama is the best friend Wall Street ever had. Romney will pick his industry and begin fellating.

  5. John Myste says:

    Yes, but how is Mitty going to get past the Republican Primary to get his shot at Obama. The republican hard right currently has the vast majority of the Republican vote. I think they would gladly nominate Perry over Romney. Romney has to get past crazy in order to even fight and crazy has a very large following.

    OK, I just clicked, “Notify me of follow-up comments via email,” and I am not going to lie to you. It was sweeeeet.

    Pissed, I just saw your comment. I thought the same thing, but did not say it.

  7. Matteo says:

    Gallup has Obama’s approval down to 38%. Not good.

    I don’t think it really matters who runs against Obama unless there’s a dramatic improvement in the economy between now and August 2012. He’s done.

    Willard isn’t going to get the nomination. He can’t get past the cousin-fuckers. Especially now that Guv Goodhair is in.

    I’m far more intrigued with something I heard about Huntsman today. I’ll be posting on it later.

    Another clown in the circus. Remember what Willard was best at: seek, destroy, make money. Just a question exactly just how many jobs did you send overseas Willard?
