Yesterday (Washington Post): ….according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, President Obama leads five of six potential Republican presidential rivals tested in the poll. But he is in a dead heat with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney …. among all Americans, Obama and Romney are knotted at 47 percent each, and among registered voters, the former governor is numerically ahead, 49 percent to 46 percent.

Today (Reuters): …according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll on Wednesday, President Obama leads all potential Republican challengers by double-digit margins. He is ahead of his closest Republican rival, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, by 13 percentage points – 51 percent to 38 percent.

Thanks Debra 😉

    I wonder why every newscast blasted news of yesterday’s ABC poll, but hardly a peep about today’s more optimistic Obama polls. Very strange and partisan, doncha think?
    And OT—-I have no idea what this show is—-my girls are grown —–but I see Michelle Obama is going to appear on Nicklodon’s program “iCarly”—-

    These polls are given far too much attention. They are totally meaningless at this point in time. We need to stop giving them more impact by reacting to every up or down trend. Instead, we should all apply whatever means we have to influence public opinion by pointing out the achievements of the administration. We should also take our fight to members of Congress and let our voices be heard about the disastrous agenda of the Republican/Tea Party. If we do that, the polls will take care of themselves – if they have any meaning at all.

    This is another piece of really good news. It is so sad that one poll got so much attention yesterday. Why, because msm only cares about bad news. Disgusting.

    Thanks Debra. When I read that ABC poll yesterday, I was thinking if this is true than Americans are IDIOTS.

      I agree. I just got call from OFA. There are 2 scheduled events coming up in my area and I will volunteer for both events. We need everyone to get busy now! We cannot let another Nov. 2010 happen. We especially need to be looking towards the minority and youth vote. Both groups are less likely to vote in local and state elections, hence the bad November turnout. Both of these groups will be important in getting the President re-elected AND taking the House back. I encourage everyone to work with your local OFA to get people registered and to be sure they understand how greatly the results of this election will impact their lives. I”M IN…. are you?

    Polls, specially at this time are totally a waste of time – the only ting that matters is the evening of election day, where the only scenario for me is Landslide for Obama/Binden!
    I just do not see any worthy or equal opponent for President Obama, and that is somewhat a pity, because with a worthy and equal opponent, the President’s brilliance would shine even more in the discussions ahead of election day.
