Also need to factor in mix of these polls.

Dem/Rep/Ind

If weighted towards Dems then it’s not as accurate an indicator as the MSM would like us to believe.

For an incumbent president to be only 1 point ahead at this stage spells doom for his re-election prospects. His team knows it and so does the media...

Butt-ugly numbers on the daily tracking poll. Romney`s starting to get blown off the field (0 leads 49%-45%). 0 is at 52% approve as well.

“Tell that to the Doom and Gloom crowd here..”

You mean the democrats that are posting as if they’re conservatives? Yeah, I’m amazed at how many there are who are doing it. Nothing they can do will stop us from voting against the Democrat Socialists this year.

Who are these citizens who cling to a "redistributionist" and his promises, most of which rely on the doctrines of faith in the teachings of Marx and Lenin--not in the ideas of Creator-endowed life, liberty, rights, and laws to protect them encased in America's Declaration of Independence and implemented in its Constitution?

One cannot believe in those documents and, at the same time, embrace the principles summarized in the following questions:

"1. Does this legislation or idea increase, or decrease, individual freedom and creativity?

"2. Does this legislation or idea increase, or decrease, the power of some citizens over other citizens?

"3. Does this legislation or idea recognize that the persons who will exercise the power are themselves imperfect human beings?

"4. Does this legislation or idea recognize that government is incapable of creating wealth?

"5. Does this legislation or idea authorize taking from some what belongs to them, and giving it to others to whom it does not belong?
If 'thou shalt not steal' is a valid commandment, can we assume that it is meant to apply only to individuals and not to government (which is made up of individuals), even if those persons in power pass laws which sanction such redistribution of the wealth of others?'

"6. Does this legislation or idea encourage, or discourage, the very highest level of morality and responsibility from the individual?
. . .when government makes actions 'legal' by some citizens at the expense of other citizens, the result may be behavior which would not be considered possible by individuals acting alone.

"7. Does this legislation or idea propose that the 'government' do something which the individual cannot do without committing a crime?"

*7 principles drawn from James R. Evans book, "America's Choice," and reprinted in a Stedman Corporation (Asheboro, NC) booklet entitled "I'm Only One, What Can I Do?"

An honest and realistic examination of the current Democrat Party platform and this President's policies and actions should take these principles into account.

This is surreal. The country is falling apart. Every trip to the gas station or grocery store is a horror show — and we have people out there saying “yeah, give me more”. This man shouldn’t be able to make public appearances without rotten tomatoes being thrown at him and, yet, he’s at 52% approve.

Obama Widens Lead over Romney Despite Jobs Data
Saturday, September 8, 2012 06:35 PM

President Barack Obama, picking up support following the Democratic National Convention, widened his narrow lead over Republican U.S. presidential challenger Mitt Romney in a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Saturday.

I think it is a good thing if Obama stays slightly ahead of Romney in the poles right up to election day.

First I don’t believe the polls, I think Obama is dead in the water, but far too many believe those poles.

Second if the poles show Obama ahead, it will keep people motivated to vote.

I don’t like the thought of voting for Romney, and many other conservatives are thinking the same. If we conservatives start thinking Romney is way ahead, many just might write in a favored candidate, this would not be good.

The bottom line for me is that we got to get Obama out of there, and voting for Romney is the only way to do that, whatever the polls may say.

I thoroughly expect to be flamed for this comment.

Your post is essentially what I scream from my couch every night. If he were a GOPer he'd be laughed off the stage and wouldn't even have th nerve to run for re-election. Instead he's leading in the polls. It's like upside downo world. The media is much more powerful than we think.

Another part of the incumbent being only 1 point ahead is that any bad news on the economy, etc., is going to work against the incumbent numbers - if the press were pounding relentlessly about the cost of gasoline and food the way they would be in the event of a Republican incumbent, this race wouldn’t even be close.

I’m not sure PA is in play.

But, these are very encouraging numbers. It is reasonable to suppose the undecideds will break 2/3 for the changer. Such a split would give the advantage to Romney 51 to 49 percent in the battlegrounds.

Add to that the timing of the poll, that it is during the bounce being enjoyed by the Democrats, and maybe we’re talking a Romney advantage of 4 to 6 points (instead of only 2) in the battleground states.

Well.

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows President Obama attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote.

This is the president’s biggest lead over Romney among Likely Voters since March 17. See daily tracking history. Obama’s convention bounce is evident both in the head-to-head numbers with Romney and in his Job Approval ratings (see below).

Just remember: Gallup Had Carter Up 4 Points Over Ronald Reagan in September 1980...and up by 8 in October.

Forget the polls...and get out the vote!

When you put up a Republican Candidate who does not have a core, it is not surprising that 52 percent support reelection of Obama. I blame GOPe, the Romney Fans on here and others for the possible demise of Romney.

Obviously there was something in Obama`s and Clinton`s speeches that gave the American electorate a Chrissy Matthews leg thrill. I don`t know what it was from a content standpoint, but the only theory I can come up with is voters must feel downright “fabulous” inside when they hear either of their voices.

Sadly, I think you are probably wrong. For every person who won't vote for Romney because he's not conservative enough, I believe there is probably a moron out there to counter that vote because the MSM paints this theoretical conservative candidate as an extremist and scary. So, in that regard, I think it is a wash.

Demographically, I think we have reached a tipping point.

I don’t even think a tenth of them even watched the spectacle that was the DNC. I think they get up every morning and think whatever popular culture tells them is trendy and hip to think. With the exception of the medicare crowd, they vote whoever isn’t a threat to their perceived “free” medical crap.
