I don’t see the EV info...where is that? Ras does note that Romney is down but just barely in OH, FL and VA....seems Romney needs all of those to win?

After his stating the truth about those that do not pay taxes... those that are hard left and ows types... those that are government union drones... organized labor, code pink... and welfare scammers... these all make up the 47% that Mitt referenced... and with his declaration that Palestinians have no interest in peace with Israel... look for Romney to break 50% within the next 10 days.

Rasmussen is a rolling poll - 3 days I believe. So these numbers include Monday, Sunday, and Saturday. Weekends favor democrats becuase many Republicans are not home.

Still, I want to wait for at least the first Presidential debate before succumbing either to agony or exaltation.

There are so many things keeping Obasma a little off-balance now, that any waver, any stumble, any hesitation that drags on a little two long, may provide the edge. Conversely, if Mitt Romney fails to pursue a point, or is thrown off-topic, or does not summarily and decisively respond to allegations with no basis in fact that may be raised, either by the opponent, or more critically, by the moderator of the debate, the whole campaign may begin to crumble.

It's going to be interesting to see how this "secret video" changes things. It may have no effect at all, but it may also turn the race around.

"I am the 53%" was an effective meme to counter the "Occupy Mom's Basement" protest. It may be time to revive it.

thanks...I see what you mean. Tied more or less in the “safe” EV category. But still some work to do because his margin to get to 270 is all in the “toss up” states.

Basically...we are where we have said we are all along.

The whole thing comes down to 6 or 7 states. Same old same old.

The irony is that if Romney wins what he needs to just barely get across the finish line, ie, he wins OH, FL, WI, VA, IA, etc...then he is likely to win by a tsunami and get up into the 330 to 350 EV range.

Basically, we need about a 3 point bump nationally, and that national surge needs to spill over into those individual states.

Very very doable.

But not done yet.

You might be right. If so, then teh brilliant spirit of Lee Atwater is at work in the Romney campaign....Man oh man I hope you are right!

(I fear, though, that America is too far gone and with the Pravda media saying this is another fatal gaffe, I am fearful.....of course, Romney is correct: obama’s base is 47%. The riders in the wagon. The war is for the six percent. In the last election, that six percent voted for obama and McCain lost 53-47....).

It’s really been a roller coaster lately. It’ll be interesting to see what effect the hidden camera remarks will have on the polls.

Although I'm not sure how thing work in a tie it could be that all he needs is 269.My understanding is if it goes to the House then each state's Reps vote,the majority deciding that state's vote.Geeze...I'm confusing myself here.But maybe 269 will be enough.

This talk of a tsunami is silly,irresponsible and dangerous.In the Electoral College this one's gonna be close...Bush/algore close.We must work every day under that assumption.

If it is too late... then prepare now... better to be prepared and not need to be than the alternative. Most of us will not agree to live under communism or sharia so either we win politically or...

Actually I believe Romney is currently climbing.

That is the deal.

I’m not a Romney-first guy. I like Ryan and I decided once Palin stood down, I would support Romney.

But Ryan is the winner. I hope Romney puts Ryan out front more.

Alexis de Tocqueville had it right years ago.

Allen West was on FOX & Friends this AM, talking in rebuttal to the Romney “gaffe” saying that Tocqueville (he read it verbatim)had this figured out that when the riders in the wagon knew they could keep voting for Free Obama Stash (OK, my words)freebies that at some point, it became a dictatorship, which is what Obama wants. Loud and Clear - people need to wake up, which finally they are, in that Zippy is outwardly working to bring down this great nation.

We the People will not let that happen. Get out to volunteer, do our part. Let's do this.

“But Ryan is the winner. I hope Romney puts Ryan out front more.”

Well, I thank you and agree from the top of my cheese head to the bottom of my beer glass.

Paul Ryan is the real deal and the clowns that chopped Sarah off better stand back and let Paul Ryan loose. I believe he would not stand to be silenced. IMHO.

Yep, it bears repeating.

Obama has to run against Romney.

But Romney has to run against Obama and the MSM.
