The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for 6/22/12 shows Mitt Romney attracting 48% of the vote, while Obama earns 43%
Obama picks up support from just 35% of white voters overall. That’s eight points below the 43% of the white vote he won in 2008. Among white Democrats, 17% currently plan to vote for Romney. Just 33% now believe that Obama is doing a good or excellent job when it comes to the economy. That’s down from 41% at the beginning of May 2012. Forty-five percent (45%) believe that America’s best days have come and gone. Just 37% believe that they are in the future. Another poll shows that nearly half of the nation’s new voters, age 18-24, think that Obama has done a “fair” or “poor” job as president, resulting in a 13 point drop in support.
