Check out the latest Rasmussen tracking poll.
Mitt Romney is now back in the lead with 44% of the vote Obama is that 43%.
Of obviously raises tied here Scott Rasmussen is in New Jersey Scott.
I mean let's say it would it is it's really a toss up at this point -- -- -- is in fact -- we look at these daily numbers to catch the quick trends but we also compiled the data on a full week basis sort of smooth out some of the bouncing around.
When I look back at the last eight weeks six of those weeks Romney was up by a pointer to.
Once he was doing better than that once you're doing a little worse than that -- this raises -- -- need be a very slight edge for the governor package -- here earlier he said he felt that may be.
Probably should be up a lot more at this point.
So -- you look at a toss up and say this really favors president.
I don't know how you -- at -- possible but really say favors either personally understand what -- is saying given the perceptions of the president's handling of the economy and given the economic numbers.
There's an awful lot there should be an awful lot of concern a lot for -- challenger to work with on the other hand.
The president's job approval has been steady at about 47%.
Plus or minus two point or -- for the last two and a half years.
That -- a presidential be expected to get around 47% of the vote on Election Day.
Which translates to a toss up.
Hey Scott I saw an article a couple of weeks ago about a cell phone polling.
About how you and others in the polling business go out there and cell phones apparently are used by.
Primarily more Democrats -- -- -- because they think they're younger they're Baltimore Democrat but what -- What's your read on the accuracy of -- of getting those cell phone users to respond to your polls.
Now let's face I don't think there should be many federal mandates by think everybody should be required have a land line -- the answer whenever we call.
Because that's that's certainly this is a huge issue.
But it's not really about cell phone that's just scratching the surface people don't use -- the way we use use land lines more people -- then actually talk on the phone.
-- five or ten years from -- there won't be any telephone polling.
We have to find new ways to deal with this there is no doubt in -- -- and every other one the when you include people who will be in the land lines and numbers shift a couple of points more -- -- Democrat.
You know speaking of the future a lot of people don't think there's going to be any money from Medicare so wanna talk about these -- specifically the Medicare first.
I know that you guys -- the likely voters how confident they feel about giving their benefits to Medicare benefits during their lifetime.
And only 10% we're very confident -- -- seven present that.
They were not confident all I mean this.
I mean I guess this is both Bill Burton either party and in Washington in general doesn't.
It sure does end look only 45% of voters nationwide believe it's a good deal for today's workers workers themselves or even more pessimistic.
People like the concept of Medicare they like the idea of setting aside money.
During your working years -- -- draw down when you retire but that's not the way the system works.
Key point in all the polling we've done no matter how we frame it no matter what particular issue -- focus on.
People place a lot more confidence in competition in Foster more competition.
-- -- more regulation to bring the cost of care down.
They're just not quite sure how to go about doing.
Well a lot of people are insured by the way it's got to look great man looks like you also await you gonna run for offices and I'm now working hard to lose weight and I'm not gonna run for office -- have over love your poll on -- -- -- anyway they can't because we did -- thanks a lot at.
