    Some things from the same poll that the OP would prefer to keep hidden like the first few paragraphs. icon_lol.gif

    NBC/WSJ poll: Obama, Romney remain in dead heat

    President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney remain locked in a tight contest, with each candidate displaying significant strengths and weaknesses four months before Election Day, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    For Obama, he runs stronger than Romney does in the key swing states, and he holds a strong base of support among young voters, African Americans and Latinos. What’s more, the president continues to be personally popular.

    But in the past month, the public has grown more pessimistic about the state of the U.S. economy and the country’s direction. And two key parts of Obama’s base – young voters and Latinos – aren’t as enthusiastic about the election as they were four years ago.

    For Romney, key Republican groups – including the Tea Party – have begun to rally around the former Massachusetts governor, and he has the opportunity to capitalize on the attitudes about the economy and nation’s trajectory.
    ...
    A largely undefined Romney

    Meanwhile, the challenge for Romney is far different: create a stronger impression with the American public.

    Although the poll shows that only 6 percent of respondents don’t know who Romney is, just 20 percent say they “know a lot” about him, versus 43 percent who indicate the same about Obama. (That said, Romney’s percentage here is comparable to Obama’s when he was running for president at this same point in 2008.) [not in article: This will change with the significant cash advantage supporting Romney and targeting Obama.]
    ...
    But it’s also been a problematic month for Obama when it comes to U.S. economy. According to the poll, 49 percent say they’re less optimistic about the economy after what they’ve seen, read and heard in the last few weeks, compared with 43 percent who are more optimistic.

    What’s more, 53 percent disapprove of the president’s handling of the economy, which is up one point from last month.

    And 61 percent believe the nation is headed in the wrong direction, a three-point increase from May.


    ------------------------------------------------

    This was a Registered Voters poll. Likely Voters generally swings a few points in the Republican's favor.

    About 2% actually. The other 7% comprises delusional gay republicans.

    What SoCal doesn't bring up about the figures he quotes, is the effect of the Party of no's efforts to block Obamas economic efforts to instead stick with the Bush Tax breaks (that didn't improve job growth) at every turn, and instead the party of no, were saying yes to promoting civil rights regressions and Lobby wish lists rather than job creation.

    SoCal would have us believe that the 61% who say our country is headed in the wrong direction has Obama to blame. A good deal of polls blame congress and expecially the Party of no's intransigence. All this and the Party of No are repeating ad-nauseum that its Obama's fault.

    Romneys ahead in donations as a direct result of the likes of Koch Bro's and Adelson who promised "endless funds to defeat Obama" and in both cases these billionaires have their interests in mind, not the American Voters interests.

    On the upside for Willard, he's still more popular than a root canal.

    Yes. The only one that matters in the November General Election.

    I'm just happy to see that I'm in the company of 13% of those polled.
