Unreal. I wonder if this is statistical noise. The next few days should give us an indication.
BHO is going to win reelection. When that happens it’s not going to be pretty.
You are one of the posters who knew this was coming. Both of us have been minorly flamed suggesting that beating Obama will be a huge challenge.
At this point, if I was handicapping, I’d make Obama 3:2 favorite.
Obama is confident in his ineptitude, knowing he has the MSM covering for him. If Solyndra, Lightsquared and F & F had been on a GOP watch, heads would be rolling, poll numbers would be tanking.
This is just a residual effect of him drifting to the background in the political dialog.
He’s betting on the stupidity of the American people. It’s a pretty good bet.
If Zero is at -12 by this Friday you can worry a little.
This “rise” falls within the margin of error, so I wouldn’t get excited.
Its just noise. Last I checked, the economy is not getting better (consumer confidence is low) and scandals (solar) are not going away.
I think one factor to consider. Whenever Hussien gives a speach or presser, his numbers go down. He was not really visible last week. Hence the soft bump.
On another FR article, Hussien just called Americans lazy....yep, that will boost his numbers!
All the brain dead who voted for him and want a free ride are killing America. Obama must be flushed!
ALL POLLS, that is without exception all public released polls are for profit marketing tools to shape public opinion. They only work as long as gullible people pay attention to them. Best poll is to ask people you know and what you see from people you learned to trust.
Worthless liberals appreciate Obama calling them lazy.
It could be the trouble is that they are not excited by the GOP candidates.
He simply didn’t do anything abismally stupid last week that would grab headlines. Media occupied with Occupy, Cain, and lost babies. Solyndra, Siga under the radar.
And he’s on vacation again - which is good for his numbers.
Well he definitely is rebounding off the dismal numbers during summer. The question remains in the battleground States of FL, OH, VA, NV, NC, CO and IN. I suspect that much of his support is confined to blue States and urban areas.
Humble pie for those who thought Obama was toast. 2012 will be an epic struggle and if we win it will be by the skin of our teeth.
Whom are they polling? The OWS Crowd?
Well are all of you daily poll way watchers just going to have your breakdown and co hide in the corner?
Boo hoo, the daily tracking poll in 2011 says Obama is going to win in Nov 2012.
Go do something productive and stop acting like pathetic defeatists.
Runs around pointing fingers at everyone. Hes just been more active lately.
Even so its disheartening that people believe him.
It’s time to start looking State by State.
Indiana, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia all look to be falling out of Obama’s column. That leaves Ohio and one TBA.
If Obama loses the four above, and he loses Ohio, all we have to do is drop one more from his column. Wisconsin, Nevada, Colorado, New Hampshire, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa or Pennsylvania are are States that could be considered “flippers”, and are all States he needs to heavily defend.
It won’t be “easy”, but the path to victory (at least in the EC math) is pretty straight forward: Flip Ohio and one other, or flip any 3 from that list and Obama cannot win.
