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.)

Yea, like totally dude.
Same story, different day- poll massively over-samples Dems:
“This poll must include the 40,000 dead FL voters.”
LOL. And Mickey Mouse.
These “polls” are... horse. sh*t.
what a joke poll
And they'll continue to the bitter end. They want to convince those who have left the Obama camp that he's really what they had hoped he would be so they might consider jumping back. I'm more interested in Scott Walker today and will pay more attention to the Presidential polls at the end of Sep through Oct...Then the crdible polls will be showing a truer picture and the others will slowly close their own bias gaps to not look so irrelevant.
Well you know this is crap.
First it was registered voters, not likely voters.
Second, even with that snafu the leads are 4-6 points and that’s not looking any deeper at the internals.
VA I don’t know about, but there is no way Obama is winning Ohio, its not even going to be close there. I suspect the same for FL.
These polls just don’t jive with reality... any poll showing obama with any statistically measurable lead in a state that isn’t hard core blue at this point, is suspect to me out of the gate. And even in most of those states if his lead is more than 5 points I’m am suspect.
Every poll I’ve looked at for 6+ months in their internals shows that voters by and large are ready to crawl over broken glass, and then roll through salt in order to vote against this guy in overwhelming margins.
Yes, among registered voters, many of whom aren't paying attention and will not show up at the polls in November. Worthless poll.
Yesterday's poll of Florida had Romney up by seven in likely voters...which is far more accurate historically.
Get ready for the biggest onslaught of. "The Dear Leader is Great," "The Dear Leader is Winning," "The Dear Leader can do no Wrong," "The Dear Leader is our Hero," "The Dear Leader is the Best Leader Ever," and, "The Opponent is Sleasy, Hateful, Racist, Mean, Out of touch, (you provide any negative comment)," in history
But the people are already showing they are not buying it, except those who are hopelessly tied up in the ideology, or hopelessly hooked on the Federal dole. We can only hops and pray that there are still more of us than them...and the doubtless hundreds of thousands of dead and illegal voters they will also marshall.
I find this hard to believe.
What's the over/under on the number of times they will refer to Obama as the "Comeback Kid"?
Likely voters with crosstabs is the only legit demographic outside the election itself.
Independent, that is not enrolled in any party
I know Obama is Losing OH.. and I believe FL as well.. Yes FL is full of retiree New Englanders who retired there and skewed the state, but I don’t believe for one minute they are looking around at their kids and grandkids plight, and going, yep, 4 more years of this bozo.
Just not seeing it. Health Care, which might have been a plus for this set is incredibly unpopular, and gay issues sure aren’t going to swing them... So I really don’t see how FL, or OH are even close. VA with the DC area who knows.. but I don’t see any calculus giving Obama a victory in OH or FL. Or for that Matter, NC, IN, WI and yes even PA.
Basically any state that isn’t a new england or west coast liberal state, I think is lost to Fauxbama. PA is democrat, but thye are more blue dog democrats than light in the loafer new england liberals. Pelosi, Reid and Obama have dragged their party so far from them, that I just don’t see the partying getting major support this fall in rust belt at all.
MN likely will stay blue, but WI, OH, and PA? really doubt they aren’t going red, at least 2 of the 3. MI? Well lets just say if MI goes red, its going to be an electoral tidal wave, because if it goes red, the rejection of Obama is goign to be so massive, even some of the new england states (besides NH) will likely go red as well.
