    Obama Leads in Poll as Most See Romney Out of Touch With Voters

    BloombergThe survey shows Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, has yet to repair the damage done to his image during the Republican primary. Thirty-nine percent of Americans view him favorably, about the same as when he announced his presidential candidacy last June, while 48 percent see him unfavorably -- a 17-percentage point jump during a nomination fight dominated by attacks ads. A majority of likely voters, 55 percent, view him as more out of touch with average Americans compared with 36 percent who say the president is more out of touch.

    Taken together, the results suggest an unsettled political environment for both Obama and Romney five months from the November election, with voters choosing for now to stick with a president they say is flawed rather than backing a challenger they regard as undefined and disconnected.


    Voters just don't trust the right-wing, anti-freedom, job-killing flip-flopper Mitt Romney.

    BloombergForty-five percent of those surveyed in a Bloomberg National Poll say they are better off than at the beginning of 2009 compared with 36 percent who say they are worse off. In March, poll respondents split almost evenly on that question after having been decidedly negative since the aftermath of the worst recession in seven decades.

    “I’m just tired of the doom and gloom,” says Jim Seeley, 52, a mortgage banker in Traverse City, Michigan, and a poll respondent, in a follow-up interview. “I think it’s looking better. People just need to stay positive.”

    Romney is clearly not connecting with voters, and his time is running out.

    The reason Obama is doing as well as he is in spite of the struggling economy is that people do not like Romney and are discovering that he has no new ideas for improving the economy.
    More tax cuts for millionaires? Yeah, Mitt, we tried that. That's how we got here.

    Mitt Scissorhands Romney has no jobs plan. He has no immigration plan. He has no health care plan. He has nothing, except tax cuts for billionaires and a hateful idea to amend the Constitution to reflect his homophobic views.

    Mitt's entire platform consists of "Obama is doing blah blah blah wrong." But when asked what he would do all voters are getting is bunch of cowardly, evasive, Etch-A-Sketch bullcrap. Scissorhands is job killing homophobic anti-Latino hack with no new ideas except more Bush era failed policies, and people are catching on.

    I don't know, Bloomberg is Jewish, and you know how those Jews are good with numbers.

    President Obama even has a lead over Romney in Nevada, which I believe has the highest unemployment rate in the country.

    Obama is ahead in Colorado, Nevada, Virginia, Wisconsin, and New Mexico. Even if he wins Ohio and Florida, Romney has no path to 270. Poor right-wing flip-flopper with no jobs plans and no solutions except tax breaks for billionaires, wasting America

    Remember Rasmussen is wrong in its prediction more often than not and always giving more credit the Republican candidate than the Democrat.

    The Bloomberg poll is an outlier, but Rassmussen is consistently wrong in an obvious attempt to influence the narrative. Rassmussen will adjust his sample in October so as not to look like a fool on Election Day.
