They seems to be building some momentum since Rick Santorum dropped out of the race joining us now is Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports.
Scott is it me -- my imagination -- -- since it became a two person race pretty much almost -- artificially.
It seems like to those Mitt Romney's really has got a little bit of momentum going what are your poll showing.
Right now we show Mitt Romney leading the president 47%.
To 44% obviously very close.
Mostly what we say is there were some Republicans who used to say they would vote for -- -- -- they would not vote for Mitt Romney in the general election if you were the nominee.
And now Romney is consolidating that Republican support.
Now last week President Obama seem to have been not a great week.
There was a snuff -- about him saying that his the Buffett rule was the Reagan rule and you know messing around with the image in the legacy of Ronald Reagan and then came the demeaning -- women who stay at home and look after the children.
The polls that you'll quoting -- they -- -- asked those two events on the was taken over the weekend the very latest.
Act yes after -- over the last three nights.
Retract his race every single morning we released results every morning at 930 in our web site and will be tracking and all the way until we know who wins in November so you go to three points margin of -- and a three point spread of the mom is a you'd call -- a dead heat as we speak.
And and Stuart what do you look ahead the fundamental fact is this is going to be a referendum on President Obama this is a president who we look at our monthly polling data for 32 months in a row.
Has had his job approval rating between 44 and 49%.
Of the vote.
About forty -- 49% approval which means you get somewhere in that range of the vote.
We're looking at a close election unless the president can win a few more people over he's likely to get just under 50% of the world.
Okay is that what's that has the standing of that historically with -- other incumbents looking for reelection.
It's near the low and but it's not nearly as low as Jimmy Carter's war the first President Bush's.
Typically if -- as if -- president's job approval is over 50%.
You say he's gonna win and if the economy gets better between now and November.
President Obama's numbers could move to that point.
George Bush four years ago or eight years ago got 51% of the vote his job approval was 51%.
As we tell our view is frequently you'll.
Off one of the founders.
