Could Romney beat Obama?

A hypothetical 2012 presidential matchup between likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama has Romney leading, 48 percent to 44 percent. The poll was based on Rasmussen Tracking Reports, a 3-day rolling average of figures gathered from likely voters. This poll represents the largest advantage for Romney recorded by Rasmussen in over a month.

Rasmussen Polling Methodology

The sample consisted of 500 respondents contacted via automated phone call to landlines. An additional 1000 respondents were contacted randomly via internet polling, as part of a voluntary, demographically diverse panel. Results were weighted for demographics and political party affiliation.  The margin of error was +/- 3 Points.
