What happened to the ABC/WP Tracking Poll?

What happened to the ABC/WP Tracking Poll?

It is supposed to be released at 5 pm EST, every day. So far, nothing has been released today.

I am becoming paranoid that they are dumping "special sauce" on their data showing a Romney lead, in order change the narrative in time for the Sunday talkfests.

It isn’t going the way they want it to, so they just “forgot” to release it.

Whomever they’re trying to get to watch the Sunday shows have already decided on the election, for the most part. The others will be watching football or preparing for the hurricane.

They claimed a 5pm release. Then when Obama gained a point yesterday they released it at noon (weird). Now today there is no release. They either don’t like the data or (possibly) weekday only?

Washpo just released a poll with the liar up 51 to 46 over Romney in Va.
Seems to contradict other polls... The again It is the washington compost.

They did not actually REFUSE to release the poll numbers. They just went to bed to get ready for Vegas.

LOL.

Also, no one from the WaPo Lifestyle section refused to release the numbers. Any suggestion to the contrary is simply not accurate.

Are you sure it was a WashPo poll or the one done by that far left wing group that showed him up in every state from Florida to Virginia?

Saw it on twitter so not completely sure but think just washpo. Their last poll before this one had the incompetent in chief up by 8 in Va.

Well if Obama’s even tied in VA then we’re pretty much screwed.

Never trust a media poll even if it shows you winning.

Take 3rd party public polls like Rasmussen and Gallup with a moderate grain of salt.

Only pay attention to the campaigns internal polls (which we never get to see).

Romney has been at 50% in Gallup for TWELVE straight days and 50% in RAS for FIVE straight days. You know how many straight days Obama has been at 50% in either of those polls? ZERO (kind of appropriate, don’t you think). And in the polls that show it tied or Obama ahead, he still can’t get beyond 47% (there’s that number again).

My sources on the ground in Virginia tell me that the state is safe for Mittens.

This is actually a good poll for Romney. He’s up 8 with Indies and up 11 on economy w Indies. The state is now a plus 2 for Rs. Romney should win VA going away.

The real question is why you should care about an ABC poll. Ugh.
