I know it’s only June, but still…

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting 48% of the vote, while President Obama earns 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The president 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. The gender gap is now at 11 points. That’s little changed from the 12-point gap in 2008. Romney leads by 11 among men, and the candidates are even among women.

This is good news all around. President Obama is losing support among white voters, Mitt Romney leads by double digits among men and, most important, they split the women’s vote. What else could we ask for? Best of all, the survey suggests that the phony “war on women” meme invented by Democrats has failed to significantly hurt Romney (despite their best efforts). Sure, Leftists will continue to argue Rasmussen polls are deeply skewed (and overtly partisan!) even though they accurately predicted the outcome of the 2008 presidential election. Go figure. And, yes, while Gallup’s latest survey does show the two candidates locked in a dead heat -- 46 to 46 -- the Rasmussen graph below should still brighten your weekend.
