Los Angeles Times - 2 hours ago By Mitchell Landsberg Florida, the state that bequeathed Bush vs. Gore to the American political lexicon, is once again evenly divided in a presidential race, according to a new statewide poll.

Internals make a poll junk, garbage in garbage out,
IMHO because asmuch as 50 percent of the people have no skin in the game. ie. pay no taxes or are on the government dole in one way or another. They don't want a change,
So too in parts of Idaho, Montana and the entire coast of Oregon and Washington. The same socialist wierdo’s who ruined Californication are ruining the best parts of the west.
They are either trust fund artist types or the moocher class that follow the welfare states with the best freebies.
The Dems are trying to take the focus off the economic decline and on ‘social issues.’ They lose either way in my opinion (unless the GOP is more clueless than we know). However, the margin he loses when the economy is the focus is huge!
This loser and his family have been screwing the American public since the day he became a senator. Too bad for America. Luckily once out of office in January the indictments will start coming in and the trials and convictions. Just think the Commander in Chief of the Military convicted of Treason, which I believe that is still a capital crime. I guess the Florida Democrats head office saw ahead to the future when they had a US flag with Obama’s face emblazoned on it hanging from a pole. Never thought I’d see the day a democrat would be the first to hang him. Cool idea though. NObama 2012. Hang in there Obama our hope will be here when you get changed. Depends are hell aren’t they?
If they give the true numbers and shows Obama behind by 10 or more points in most states, the mob will stay home and see it as useless to come vote. They have to keep them thinking he is going to win in a romp. He may anyway, but they got to get them all out to vote, homeless and dead included.
It’s labeled junk because (a) the sampling is biased Dem, (b) it’s registered-voters and not likely voters.
The question on election night is going to be whether Obama loses 48 or 50 states. How Florida goes will be apparent before September.
It will be inaccurate, because usually a higher percentage of Republican registered-voters actually vote than do Dem voters, even allowing for all the urban vote fraud.
I got to watch transplants from the NE and thier illegal alien servitors ruin Virginia when I lived there. It was horrifying to watch the slow, gracious charm we enjoyed in the 1990s become the frantic, crowded jostle of the late 2000s. Northern VA is reliably Dem now, and nearly as mean as Bsltimore.
We can win without them. Even with a weakling like Romney. Win without them and govern without them.
I disagree. I think that Hussien will win NY, CA, IL, etc. but not by huge margins.
As for MI, WA, NJ, NH, MA, etc., I think these are in play (my opinion). I really am beginning to think that many people are getting really sick of Zero’s liberal positions and egotistical speeches that the will vote against him in November. I think that more and more people will view Romney as a more reasonable and palitabe alternative.
I don’t believe it for a minute, not even a second.
First of all, at this point in the campaign, go with me on this, an incumbent barely tied or leading just a little, is really, really bad news for the incumbent.
It ain’t rocket science. A lot of people, not political junkees, are probably not even aware that Romney’s pretty much clinched the nomination. There’s probably plenty of people still waiting for Newt or Palin to maybe make a comeback.
And yet Romney inches up more and more...in MAY?
Assuming the polls aren’t skewed, which they always are.
I know this administration can read the handwriting on the wall. What with the 2010 rout and what happened this past Tuesday....they know their days are numbered.
“I was with a black dem elected official yesterday and his commentary was quite out of sync with Ozeros stance on a wide number of issues ....”
Don’t count on that translating into Romney votes. The portion of Black community that dislikes Obama will suck it up, hold their noses, and pull the D lever. Never minding that Obama has driven the bus into a ditch.......
“I considered him undecided.”
Must be ne of those ‘go along to get along canines.....’
I don’t translate that into Rombama votes, but I do think there will be less for Ozero which is a half a vote for Rombama.
So WHERE is a good conservative to go??
Making it worse for the dog eater, this is a “registered voters” poll.
Registered voter polls are worthless in my opinion.
“an incumbent barely tied or leading just a little, is really, really bad news for the incumbent.”
All of what you write is true but what we don’t yet know how much the affirmative action bump barry will get. That is uncharted territory. Some percent of dim bulb moderates will pull the lever for barry no matter how bad a job he does because they so want the first black President to be successful. We won’t know until the election what percent of voters that will be.
