Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

Rasmussen, August 1, 2012

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. {snip}

Most voters under 40 prefer Obama while most over 40 support Romney. The gender gap is alive and well. Obama does about 14 points better among women than men. Among white voters, Romney leads 56% to 35%.  Obama has an overwhelming lead among black voters and leads by a two-to-one margin among other minority voters. All of these dynamics are similar to Election 2008.


Forty-six percent (46%) say Election 2012 offers a choice between the lesser of two evils.  Republicans and unaffiliated voters are more likely than Democrats to see the choice in such a negative way.


Just 14% believe that today’s children will be better off than their parents.  That’s the lowest level of optimism ever measured.
