The EFM Feature

I’m not much for polls so early on, but this one (from a Democratic firm!) is just too much fun.  Via Mark Hemingway:

For the first time since last July Barack Obama does not lead Mitt Romney in PPP’s monthly national poll on the 2012 Presidential race. Romney has now pulled into a tie with the President at 45%.

Obama’s approval rating this month is 46% with 48% of voters disapproving of him. There are 2 things particularly troubling in his numbers: independents split against him by a 44/49 margin, and 16% of Democrats are unhappy with the job he’s doing while only 10% of Republicans give him good marks. Republicans dislike him at this point to a greater extent than Democrats like him and that will be a problem for him moving forward if it persists.

Romney takes advantage of those 2 points of weakness for Obama. He leads the President by 9 points with independents at 46-37. And he earns more crossover support, getting 13% of the Democratic vote while only 8% of Republicans are behind Obama.

One Response to Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

  1. Keith W Butler says:

    I was really all for Mitt a few years ago; but I find it troubling when these “politicians” embrace global warming,
    By giving the goofy notion lip service validates it for the democrats. It is a hoax. Call it for what it is. The news says Huntsman came out strongly in favor of the Republicans doing something about it. It proves he is an idiot.

    I know Mitt was more careful with how he worded his response to it. But it is still troubling. I want a repeal of the light bulb ban. And I want us to open up our country to our own vast energy resources. But with this kind of thinking we will get even more regulation and stupidity in the name of “saving the planet”.
