As noted by CNN on Thursday, August 9, 2012, President Obama had 52% of registered voters while Mitt Romney had only 45% of them, based on phone interviews to 1,010 Americans by ORC International Tuesday and Wednesday (August 7-8); with a sampling error of plus/minus 3 percentage points.

According to the pdf file data, Obama had a 49% votes while Romney had 46% for the survey done from June 28, 2012 to July 1, 2012, with both presidential candidates having the same percentage scores during the survey done from May 29, 2012 to May 31, 2012.

Mitt Romney‘s unfavorable rating is up, most Americans think the Republican presidential challenger favors the rich, and the public no longer believes that the economy will get better if Romney is elected,” CNN said on their report. The recent survey also shows that 50% of them approve the way Obama handles his job as president.

For the other findings, the CNN survey also showed that 64% of all Americans, and 68% of independents, think Romney favors the rich over the middle class; while 63% of the public thinks Romney should release more tax returns than he has already made public, a figure which rises to 67% among independents.

“Among independent voters, the poll indicates President Obama has a 53%-42% lead. The president holds a nine point advantage among women voters and a smaller six point edge among men.” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.

“That may not translate directly into votes, but it is worth noting that in August of previous election years, the public accurately predicted the winner in 1996, 2000 and 2008, and in 2004 George W. Bush and John Kerry were tied,” Holland added.
