Obama 290, Romney 222 SEP 13, 2012 BY JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
There are nine key swing states in this election (Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Nevada), with four other states (particularly Michigan, which President Obama must win, and North Carolina, which Mitt Romney must win) that also have some potential to come into play in a tight race.
So far, Rasmussen Reports is the only nonpartisan polling outfit that has conducted likely-voter surveys over the past two months in at least eight of those nine key swing states. Based on that polling, and assuming that the other states would go as expected, President Obama is currently on course for 290 electoral votes (and reelection), while Mitt Romney is on course for 222 -- with ties in Virginia and Colorado (and no recent polling available in New Hampshire).
Rasmussen's polling shows Obama up by 2 points (48 to 46 percent) in Florida, 1 point (47 to 46 percent) in Ohio, 4 points (48 to 44 percent) in Pennsylvania, and 5 points (50 to 45 percent) in Nevada. It shows Romney up by 1 point (48 to 47 percent) in Wisconsin and 2 points (46 to 44 percent) in Iowa.
This polling highlights the crucial importance of Florida, a must-win state for Romney, and Ohio, a near-must-win state. If Romney's 2-point deficit in the Sunshine State and his 1-point deficit in the Buckeye State were to become slight advantages, then the overall tally would become Romney 269, Obama 243 -- as Florida represents a swing of 58 electoral votes (either Obama gets 29 or Romney gets 29), and Ohio represents a swing of 36 electoral votes (18 for one candidate or the other).

Not even taking into account undecided voters that would break for us? How about that gaping enthusiasm gap?
Weakly Standard working hard for Barry. I don’t even know why we are wasting the money to have an election. The Obamazombies in the state controlled “media” have got the whole thing figured out. The Kenyan won.
Uggh... pundits surely know the temporary nature of polling numbers right after conventions. Yet, it doesn’t prevent them from making prediction such as this one.
If America only knew....
Will America be lost because noone had the guts to expose Obama?
The best Obama exposure site on the net:

Just a few of the pages:
It is better if you replace the p with a t...go for the gold!
These people think they know everything, but they don’t know squat. I sat with John Fund at a bar in Las Vegas after the Republican debate. He said to me, and I quote.. “Mitt Romney will not be our nominee. You can take that to the bank.”. Again, you and I and everyone here can do better than they can.
They are using the 2008 model for sampling, which is voting patterns from Obama’s 1st win. Not going to happen again.
When they use the 2010 model, which I believe is closer to reality, Obama loses in a route.
I will predict it right here and now. Romney wins with over 300 electoral votes.
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
CRTICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE 911-2012 ATTACKS
Just as Israel is grappling with Iran getting nukes, we have to grapple with what are we going to do if Obama gets reelected? What would The Founders do?
Ask King George.
I pray you are right. No matter what people think of Romney, we have to get rid of Obama first. That's job one. We can deal with RINOs later and then elect a true conservative.
I'll also make a prediction. If Obama gets reelected, there will be a 'get their guns' action and a Lexington/Concord bridge moment. And then. . . there's so much pent up emotion out here. . anything can happen.
Everyone I know is totally fed up, even 'the kids' as I call them, the 20 and 30 somethings are beginning to understand the real Obama and what he's doing to the country. Hopefully they'll turn out in large numbers on November 6th.
Yes, it’s a excellent file.
We should be proud of our FReeper, Beckwith.
“Bull Stit”?! o.O
Obama has 290 EV’s, did I miss the election?
but donate people...donate and volunteer...work on getting your senators elected and your city councilmen and your governors...
we can't go quietly into that good night....
Canada is not that far away...I don't know if I can live in this country if my fellow citizens vote that maniac in....
so pray too...donate, volunteer, and pray....
