Poll: Are the polls for "Toss-Up" states accurate?

Posted on 10/12/2012 12:04:15 PM PDT by starczar66

For those of you living in "Toss-Up" states, do you feel that the polls for your state are accurate based on what you are hearing and seeing?

My impression is that Obama’s House of Cards is crashing down around him ---RAPIDLY.

Benghazi, Biden, his inept defense in his own debate coupled with the kickback from sane people seriously questioning the simpering complicity of MSM and some polling organizations have come to a crescendo of discord and disillusionment. People, even if they are oblivious to many of his lies can only be fooled for so long.

Over on Daily Kooks, any mention of current polling being met with:

Concern trolling!
Sky-is-Falling Rhetoric!
Nasty Riech-wing troll!

The Nancy’s simply cannot admit to themselves that the queer media messiah is in trouble. that doesn’t match the Current Truth Groupthink.

time for good conservatives to enjoy some psy-ops over in DUmmy land and other sites to keep pounding away.

We have to make it so ALL democrats are endangered.

Yup, WI is a toss-up. FWIW, the ladies in my department (Madison office bldg!) had nothing good to say about Biden’s behaviour.

Ryan’s demeanor plays well around here. He really is a Wisconsin kind of guy (That’s a good thing).

Here in Ohio, I am seeing many different Republican candidate signs highly outnumbering Democratic ones, especially Mandel vs Brown signs for Senate. For fairness, I am usually driving around SW and West Ohio suburbs.

It’s early and it’s subjective, but here in Charlotte NC I’m seeing VERY few Obama signs and more Romney signs now than I saw McCain signs in 2008.

There is just no visible momentum from the Democrat Convention being here.

Also, the Governor’s race should be an easy win for McCrory (R). He’s not Tea Party, but the D’s are scandal-ridden and basically just going through the motions.

NC will go red.

If PA is for Obama, his supporters here certainly are not advertising it.

As expected in NW Ohio looking stronger for O/B...However in my neighborhood the R/R signs outnumber the O/B - unfortunately our signs come up missing a lot....

In Philly? That's encouraging...anyone have any thoughts on how the win can happen without Ohio?

Real Clear Politics moves Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania from Obama to toss up!

I’ve seen next to nothing as far as Obama support on the other end of PA (Indiana/Westmoreland Counties).

Moving eastward into the more rural areas I’ve been seeing numerous “Fire Obama” signs, many signs about Obama being anti-coal, and the like. In addition, there have been several rather scathing billboard ads against Obama.

I am in PA and have felt from very beginning Obama has no more than a few point lead AT BEST here. So yes, he newer polls showing him with a slim lead I do believe better reflect reality than the idiotic ones that were showing him with as much if not more support than he had in 2008 here.

I commute deep into Philly every day and could count on one hand the number of stickers I see for Obama. Maybe a handful of signs too. But that’s it.

I think PA is definitely in play. There’s hardly any signs out for Presidential candidates, almost as if it’s an off-year.

However, I do notice that the local Republican candidates and Romney have started to have yard signs sprout up in the SE suburbs.

The good news is that Romney seems to have managed to take the lead in FL and VA, so he can focus on offense in OH, PA, WI, MI, and IA.

We need to keep a few around just so we can pick on them. Just to drive the point home!

Still no Obama yard signs in Boulder County, Colorado. Romney signs sprouted like mushrooms after the debate. Forests of yard signs popping up for down-ticket races, bur the Democrat sign forests DO NOT INCLUDE an Obama sign! This would appear to be very ominous for Zero.

Almost no bumper stickers for either candidate, though lately I’ve seen a few Romney stickers.

eliminating ALL democrats from office will fracture them and they will split into the green party, libertarian pothead party, left over democrats, socialist party, and communist party.

They have to be crushed into electoral oblivion to keep the left out of the polical mix. Divide and conquer.

Forget the Polls (more precisely the numbers) from now on watch where the candidates are. That tells you all you need to know about the election.

Romney is constantly in Ohio. It means he thinks he has a shot in Ohio.

Obama won Ohio Last time. Losing Ohio is bad for Obama. If Obama loses Ohio that is a 36 point swing in the Electoral Vote totals. I hear Romney is headed to Michigan and Pennsylvania. Both went to Obama. If they are in play and Romney wins one of those and Ohio that is the ball game.
