Longtime Democratic Strategist Bob Beckel says if Gallup numbers are accurate "this election is over" on Fox News' afternoon show "The Five"
I’m not near a TV to watch, so thanks for the post. Interesting. I wonder if Gallup is fudging the numbers, on purpose? To get the Dem’s out to vote? I’d like to believe it’s the truth, but I don’t know.
Obama was begging for votes in OH today.
Is Beckel still paying prostitutes by personal check? That told me all I needed to know that the guy is an idiot.
Bob Beckel has echoed my call.
Bob - the election is over because no one wants Obama.
And nothing is going to turn it around for him. A guy named John Sidney McCain can tell you what its like to be behind on Oct. 18th.
And he lost!
I don’t trust Gallup much. I’d prefer to see Rasmussen validate their poll with like numbers. Ras does show a small Romney lead.
I still am wary of the “post debate bounce” meme and fear we will be hit with it in the next few days.
It’s been over since the day they rammed socialized medicine down our throats three years ago.
Beckel is not his usual spunky self. I have a feeling he knows enough people to get the internals of campaign polling, and he knew this was coming.
I think depressing voters will make them more likely to stay home rather than go out and vote.
It’s interesting that Rassmussen and Gallup have such a gap between them now. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but at least it’s showing momentum for Romney in any case.
We and Romney/Ryan shouldn’t believe the polls, especially Gallup, keep working, never let up.
I think if they were doing that, they’d have Romney up 1 or 2, not 7...that would be more likely to make Obamaites stay home in despair.
Maybe a “comeback” narrative...but it is getting a little late in the day for that as well.
If that works like it did in 2008 when Barry was the new flavor of the week, it would suppress their voter turnout. That’s what it did for our side that year.
Gallup predicted the winning candidate’s vote margin in 2008.
Its the same year except I think Romney will perform better than the numbers show.
That lying POS is just trying to keep our turnout down.
I live in the western burbs of Minneapolis. Last election the hussein signs were everywhere. I haven’t seen a single one this time. It’s a very good indication. IMHO.
I think they do want a “come back” narrative
Yeah - like he’s being paid to throw the election!
You don’t need to be a prophet in America to know who is going to be our next President.
Even Beckel isn’t that stupid!
I’m still working like we’re behind. People are making calls into swing states if their state is safe or they have no chance in their state.
I cannot watch Bob Beckel. he makes me want to puke, and the 5 comes on right around dinnertime.
When Suffolk University pollster pulled out of FL, NC, and VA, that seemed to signal it was over for Obama.
It seems that Ryan and Romney have been spending most of their time between VA and OH.
Some threads indicate that PA has started trending toward Romney.
Apparently, Team Obama has pulled their negative ads and are now on the topic of ‘binders.’ If that is true, they are in deep Big Bird do do.
The trend is our friend.
In other words, if Gallup is right, OH is a 4-5 point Romney victory, at minimum.
Maybe, maybe not.
I think the first debate changed a lot of folks minds and I'm not sure once they crossed over to Romney that they're going to cross back.
Even PMSNBC's panel of undecided voters (seriously, how can you still be undecided at this point?) showed that most on the panel swayed toward Romney.
And that's after the SECOND debate.
Baghdad Bob Beckel, the Bloviating Buffalo-Breathed Bolshevik, lies. Constantly.
Agreed, that’s why I won’t get excited just yet. If other polls started to show the same thing and it looks like that this time next week then...
Good luck with it.
The only people who are in the tank for Obama are his media cheerleaders.
No amount of sugar-coating though can disguise the bald truth. He stinks to high heaven and is going to lose!
It may also have to do with the sign hanging from his camera that says:
"NO SH_ _ word!"
Too funny and probably true.
You forgot the rest of the paragraph: ...and resurrect people from the dead to vote. Also, the Democrat Party has pulled strings with ICE to legalize as many hardened criminal, illegal aliens as quickly as possible to increase votes for Obama. They have not only been asked to go to the polls, but have also been asked to intimidate as many voters without being ejected from the polling place as possible.
Sounds like the Clinton camp is ready to pull the plug on THE ONE. Good for America.
watching it now. beckel is slumped on his elbows and seems rather subdued.
Ayers talks a lot of sh-t to try and impress the college girls. He lies about his age.
Beckel looks like Obama in debate 1.
“”””Sounds like the Clinton camp is ready to pull the plug on THE ONE. Good for America.”””””””
My opinion is that the Clintonistas, once they see for sure that hussein is done, will bail on him to save a slim chance that the hildabeast can run in 2016. They don’t want to be connected to hussein.
On the contrary. This would depress democrat contributions. I think it is in the bag for Romney and have been saying it for months. What is not in the bag is the senate. that is where the fight needs to go. We have a potential of 52-57 senate seats and this is a must-have.
Neither am I, but a quick Twitter search indicates Beckel is throwing in the towel. E.g., this tweet: "Bob Beckel says it is over for @BarackObama after the latest gallop poll.. don't stop until Nov. 6th! Nothing's sure until it is! #Mitt2012"
This election used to be between Obama & Biden vs. Romney & Ryan.
Now it's Big Bird & Binders vs. Budget & Benghazi.
New Polls - Romney up 1 in OH (ARG), 4 in CO (ARG), and 4 in PA. Plus the 7 up in Gallup LV is just amazing.
Look for Obama to turn into Monty Hall now and to start giving everything away (at our expense) in an effort to turn out his base.
Student Loan Forgiveness will just be Step 1.
The Huffington post electoral college numbers always favored Obama. The interesting thing is that the last week or so, obama would bounce anywhere from 279 to 254, but Romney was always at 206.
However, they gave enough historical info on each state to make it clear that if you gave Romney the states that always go R except when they wanted to make history in 2008, Romney would win easily.
But they stopped updating it yesterday and the link doesn’t work any more. I wonder why? ;-)
Rasmussen is hard weighted to + 5 Democrat. Gallup does not weight its poll by party affiliation.
Bob is the MEANEST, SNARKIEST thing on.....at 5:00.....I have to MUTE the TV when he is talking on The Five....LOVE the rest!
I dunno. Dead people don’t participate in polls, and they haven’t had their say yet.
Its been over since the day they rammed socialized medicine down our throats three years ago.
And we will. :-)
Yes, he is looking very depressed.
Note to self: buy booze stocks.
You may be right—but Hillary will be too old in 2016. She already looks like a twice-baked potato skin: hold the bacon bits.
Beckel is just a fat, foul-mouthed Larry King.
