Posted on 05/24/2012 7:14:46 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney in Florida, Ohio and Virginia, according to new polls of the key 2012 swing states, although Obama's advantage has narrowed in recent months.
Obama has inched ahead of Romney 48 percent to 44 percent in both Florida and Virginia, according to three new NBC News/Marist polls. In Ohio, the president has a 6-point advantage over Romney, leading his Republican rival 48 percent to 42 percent among registered voters in the state. (The polls have a plus or minus 3 percent margin of error.)

>> according to three new NBC News/Marist polls
I thought the word “Marxist” had an “x” in it. :-)
O sure he does!>sarc
Only yesterday Romney was up 6 in Florida. Theses polls are worthless.
Suspect poll, suspect assumptions, suspect methodology.
How about likely voters.
Just for a change...
Oh, good one
remember, the polls have to look like it’s close or the democrat vote fraud won’t be believable
>> Theses polls are worthless.
Yep, just manufactured “news” pushed out there to advance an agenda.
There is NO WAY in hell he’s leading in Florida unless they already have several million ballots stuffed and ready in Palm Beach and Miami/Dade Counties! You wouldn’t believe the dread in people’s faces here. Well, unless your on a government pension, and you know those folks should be worried also!
Polls before the conventions are useless. Like gauging how well an NFL team will do based on pre-season games.
Three words when considering the veracity of this poll - Ay Bee See.
Poll yesterday had (R)omney up by 6 in Florida.
It all depends on who is polling, who is being polled, and how they are polled..........
ABC poll. Much like my PMS. Very unstable. Wouldn’t trust it for the second it takes me to throw this plate across the kitchen.
Well, for the Cowboys, that seems to work..............
Polling registered voters is worthless since about 40% of them don’t vote anyhow. I think Rasmussen is the most accurate since they poll likely voters.
Significant. What's key is in what direction it will trend.
among registered voters. . . .
Significant, in that it is not a poll of LIKELY voters.
Looking at Ohio poll for example:
- only 88% are even registered voters
- 8% don’t even really plan to vote
- heavily swayed toward Rats 37% vs 28%
- 14% undecided
- 8% have never voted in a POTUS election before and not because of age.
>> I have a collection of images with idiotic reactions from Obama nitwits
To paraphrase an old witticism: “God must love nitwits... he made SO MANY of ‘em!”
Nitwits of voting age are bad ju-ju for a democratic republic, though.
This “poll” must include the 40,000 dead FL voters.
Ya, I was going to say, at least in Florida, Obama is way behind.
I’ve heard that these polls are often distorted. I’ve heard that they produce these polls to give the false impression that Obama is more popular than he really is.
