Rasmussen: Mike Huckabee ties Obama, all other Republicans trail


Rasmussen has posted their latest Presidential poll showing Mike Huckabee as the only candidate tieing President Obama. All other GOP candidates trail Obama by five or more. Mitt Romney lost four points and Newt Gingrich lost two points since the last Rasmussen survey in February.

TC, I think the date on the table near the bottom of the article is incorrect on the rasmussen site. In the article it says Romney trails Obama 45%-40% but on the table it lists Romney has having 45% and Obama having 40%. Am I misreading?

Daniel said...

Sorry, not "date" but "data"

Yes, Texas Conservative - the graph says "Romney" ahead by 5 points - only one to beat Obama. You shouldn't have posted this since you truly don't know which is accurate. Oh, yes, that is right - post anything to push your guy!

TexasConservative said...

Actually, every other website has it posted as Romney losing to Obama by five. And race42012 has it corrected to show Romney losing by 5. So I was not pushing my guy. I was posting what all other websites are posting.

Texas Conservative - That doesn't make it right -if they all jumped off the cliff, I guess you would follow...If nothing else - you should mention the discrepency in your article. Nothing like conveniently leaving out the error to push your guy...

TexasConservative said...

Anonymous, Rasmussen finally updated his chart. Romney is still down five to Obama.

Don't you think Rasmussen's headline would have been "Romney beats Obama by five" if that is what the data showed?

But it did not, and instead Rasmussen wrote this "Mitt Romney, who just formally entered the race, trails the president by five."

Texas Conservative - the problem was not with Rasmussen, but with the way in which you chose to report it. But then again, like I said - you needed to push your guy... no mention on your part of the discrepency shows you would stoop to any level. hmmmm - just like Huckabee!

DanL said...

A poll that shows Ron Paul withing 8 points of Obama? Hahahahahaha. Not a chance.

OhioJOE said...

"Texas Conservative - That doesn't make it right -if they all jumped off the cliff, I guess you would follow..." BINGO, spoken like a true Romneyite 'everybody else hates Sarah,' but when it comes to explaining what blood libel means, they are either speechless or spew non-sence.

If HuffPo has Romney over Obama you know it's true. They wouldn't have Obama losing if it wasn't true:

Helloooooooooo Earth to Romneyites!!!! "Mitt Romney, who just formally entered the race, trails the president by five, 45% to 40%." Ooooops, I forgot, Ras does not count because the beloved Pollman does not like them. You guys are truly rich.

Old Man Rasmussen said...

This poll data is a MONTH OLD:

The data for Romney is March 6-9
The data for Huckabee is March 14-17

Before most of the Huckabee Gaffs.

OhioJOE said...

"This poll data is a MONTH OLD:" That is not old for Martha and Doug.

DanL said...

"That is not old for Martha and Doug."

And Scozzafava vs Hoffman will be the present moment for you for the rest of your life.

DanL said...

OJ, Goldman was just as anti Romney as you are. So you trying to say that Rombots dismiss Rasmussen because Goldman tells them to is an exercise in crazy.

BOSMAN said...

hahahaha!

They've proved real competent on this poll:

1. Month old data released YESTERDAY.
2. Two sets of numbers to print. Call it, heads or tails?
3. Obama losing to Ron Paul by 8.

OhioJOE said...

"And Scozzafava vs Hoffman will be the present moment for you for the rest of your life." Yup, you know me well.

"OJ, Goldman was just as anti Romney as you are." Haha, yeah, almost, but that is neither here nor there. The point is that Anon, claims that Texas gave wrong data, it was not Texas who gave the wrong data.

"3. Obama losing to Ron Paul by 8." Yes, that is what pollman does, he picks and choses which polls he likes.

OhioJOE said...

For the record, I do not literally believe that Romneyites (and Huckabeeites for that matter) take marching orders from Pollman (despite the fact that some have a crush on him,) but again the point is that Mr. Limbaugh and pollman are not the only people in the world that pick and chose polls.

DanL said...

"Yes, that is what pollman does, he picks and choses which polls he likes."

As every poll shows Palin losing to Obama by double digits, I have to ask, what is your excuse?

Anonymous said...

RASMUSSEN was waiting for Romney to announce.

They are ALL against Mitt!

Go Romney!!!

Forget every poll!!!

They're ALL wrong!

OhioJOE said...

"As every poll shows Palin losing to Obama by double digits, I have to ask, what is your excuse?" I did not dispute that fact, as of today, yes she is trailing, but it would appear that she is not the only one tailing, but it would appear that most non-Huckabee candidates also trail Mr. Obama in national polls. Next......

Right Wingnut said...

The key point here is that Obama is below 50% against all of them. He's in trouble.

OhioJOE said...

Yes, RW, even Mrs. Palin keeps him under 50%. but in the world of pollman and all his friends, that simply cannot be true.

ellie said...

And OJ< according to C4p, Palin would be ahead in the polls, if it were not for all the others ahead of her! too funny for daytime TV.

OhioJOE said...

Yeah, you are funny, Ellie

Anonymous said...

OJ, you are getting funnier by the day--no hour!

You say so many crazy things that it's hard to catch it all. It actually boggles my mind sometimes.

-Martha

OhioJOE said...

Yes I am just trying to be as crazy as your loose cannon camp leader Martha.

ellie said...

For you OJ. And I've been a camp leader before. It's really a lot of fun!!!
