CNN Poll Shows President Obama With 9% Lead Over Mitt Romney, Gender Gap 16%!

April 16, 2012

From CNN

This might be a good time to mention that even Mitt Romney is openly talking about the lack of Hispanic and Latino support, and that if something is not done to turn those numbers around it spells doom for his election.

Would even Flordia Senator Rubio want to leash himself to a losing nominee?

President Barack Obama holds a 9-point lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday, thanks in part to the perception that the president is more likeable and more in touch with the problems facing women and middle-class Americans. 

The poll indicates a pronounced gender gap that benefits Obama, who holds a 16-point advantage over his challenger among women and a 3-point advantage among men.

    Donnie Boy, that doesn’t even make sense, so it’s okay for J.A,, you & Ferrell to discount CNN, when I point out that (I’m sure the 3 of yours favorite news source Faux news) 2 conservatives suggested your news source was biased in covering the campaign, and one said CNN (on topic) was fair, you say “that’s scientific” When I point out that the polling source you tout in one race, Rasmussen had a very poor record in multiple other races, rather than the one (a favorite conservitive tactic) that you cherry picked, you deflect and say I’m “attacking” the messenger????!!! Which messenger? You? Rasmussen? “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Sorry if that offends your fragile ego, perhaps there’s some kind of therapy available at the Sharon Engle/Christine O’Donnell School of Fantasy Logic. By the way, CNN’s 2008 presidential poll was also spot on 53-46. Now, that’s scientific.

    Right on cue Solly attacks the messenger rather than the message. I find liberals do that a LOT.

    Well gosh Donnie, pick one race where Rasmussen got it right and cloak it with the blanket of credibility. “After the 2010 midterm elections, Scott Rasmussen was citied by political statistician Nate Silver as the least reliable and most biased pollster of the 2010 cycle. Silver noted that Mr. Rasmussen’s polls “exhibited a considerable bias toward Republican candidates.” Silver explained that, on average, Rasmussen polls missed the actual margins by a considerable 5.8 points and his polls maintained an average bias of 3.8 points towards the Republican candidate. As a result of his erroneous polling, Mr. Rasmussen picked the wrong winner in 4 Senate races of the 2010 cycle; Nevada, Colorado, Alaska and Washington. In the Hawaii Senate race, Rasmussen’s results missed the actual margin by 40 points, the largest error ever recorded in Nate Silver’s polling database.” That’s scientific!

    Well gosh Solly, that’s certainly scientific. Ask the losers who’s pulling for them.

    Really?

    Both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum said Fox news was in the tank for Romney. Gingrich said CNN was the most objective in the campaign. Damn liberals!

    CNN. Poll may as well have been from Huffington Post or Daily Kos.

    That’s interesting since Rasmussen Reports shows Romney with a 47% to 44& lead over Obama. Wonder which one is right. Since Rasmussen correctly called the 2008 race I think I’ll go with them.

    Oh Boy! A CNN poll! What are the problems facing women and hispanics? Answer: the same problem facing everyone else, namely Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid and the rest of the upper echelons in the Democrat party. I hope he does pick Rubio…maybe George Zimmerman will vote Republican for a change.
