Romney Holds 47-46 Lead in D+9 WaPo Poll

Posted by on Aug 27, 2012 at 7:17 am

As we head into the GOP convention it appears Mitt Romney has the momentum in a new Washington Post poll. Amazingly the sample is 31 D/22 R/39 I, an absurd +9 for Democrat respondents, and Romney still has a slight edge. What you smell is fear and panic at Obama HQ.

All you need to know is right here:

The Post-ABC survey highlights the dominance of the economy as an issue in the 2012 election. Seventy-two percent of voters say the president’s handling of the economy will be a “major factor” in their vote this November.

And by no  measure can anyone say Obama’s handling of the economy has been a success.

Not only that, the big red herring for Democrats — Romney’s taxes — do not matter at all with 47% of the voters. Democrats may care because they believe there’s something there, but rational voters simply don’t care.

More bad news for the failed president: A whopping 67% says the country is on the wrong track and an incredible 84%  rate the economy as not so good or poor.

Oh, and remember that bogus poll floated immediately after Paul Ryan was selected as Romney’s VP candidate? Well, by 51-30 voters approve of the Ryan pick.

The respondents still think Obama’s going to win, but he won’t with these numbers.

Update from Marc Thiessen: Does Romney has a legitimate shot to win Michigan?

    I think Romney/Ryan will win Michigan, Wisconsin, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, and even Pennsylvania.

    Of course, he’ll have to in order to win the White House.

    In the end, people are going to look at the unemployment numbers the Friday before the election, numbers that I think will be 8.8% or higher, and just give up on him.

    Polls before October are meaningless, frankly. I think Americans have already made up their mind, but the 10-15% in the middle will see the slide and just throw up their hands and pull the lever for Romney.

    People are scarred enough now that they pay no attention to all the obviously bogus statements and out and out lies told by Obama and his sycophants. They still don’t want to be called “raaacist” by pollsters but they know if they don’t vote for Romney, we are all toast. Obama may have ruined America to the point that we can’t recover anyway. However, I think that if Romney actually does allow us to become energy independent, cut regulation and Obamacare we will enjoy an era of tremendous growth and prosperity while Europe struggles with Socialism until Radical Islam assume’s final control of that Continent. We should not rescue them this time, they aren’t worth it.

    When the media calls the race even or neck and neck etc you Romney is ahead is substantially ahead. Look how hard the WP had to bias their poll come out +1%. Romney is + 5-6%.
