Here’s some information moving across the transom Tuesday morning.
Feinstein says no to debate challenge
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) has rebuffed an election debate challenge from Republican Elizabeth Emken.
Why would Emken, who’s trailing Feinstein by double-digits in recent polls, believe Feinstein would ever agree?
Presidential Poll Watch – Obama lead eroding?
A series of polls released Tuesday morning show President Barack Obama’s lead over Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney steadily eroding.
Continued bad economic news and the impending implementation of the National Healthcare Reform appear to be having an impact. It also looks as if all fifteen battleground swing states are in play.
Here’s the latest poll rundown:
The Rasmussen Reports rolling three-day tracking poll of 1,500 likely voters has Romney leading Obama 47% to 44%, with a margin of error of +/- 3.0%.
The Gallup rolling seven-day tracking poll of 3,050 registered voters has Romney and Obama tied at 46%, with a margin of error of +/- 2.0%.
In a new ABC News/Washington POST poll of likely voters has Obama and Romney tied at 47%, with a margin of error +/- 4.0%.
A newly-released Washington Times poll of 800 Likely Voters has Romney leading Obama 43% to 42%, with a margin of error of +/- 3.5%.
Romney crushes Obama fundraising
For the month of June, Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney raised $106 million.
Now that’s a great haul.
President Barack Obama racked in just $71 million for the same period.
The Obama dream of having $1 billion in his reelection coffers appears to be fading away.
A prescription for Ambien may be in order here.
