From Rasmussen Reports...
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney earning 47% of the vote and President Obama attracting 46% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another four percent (4%) are undecided.
In the key swing state of North Carolina, Romney has opened an eight-point lead over the president. In a recent radio update for the WOR Radio Network, Scott Rasmussen points out that for now the national polls matter more than Electoral College guessing games.
Fifty-three percent (53%) believe the federal government has done a poor job regulating the financial industry. In fact, by a 2-to-1 margin, Americans believe that more competition and less regulation are better for the financial system than more regulation and less competition. As Scott Rasmussen notes in another radio update, Americans want accountability more than regulation. If JP Morgan loses big, Americans want to make sure the right people pay the price. And they want to be sure that the nation’s taxpayers are not stuck with the tab.
