Whistles. Graveyard.

Obviously if Romney has a 51-39 lead with independents, CNN must have polled a TON of Democrat “registered voters” (not likely voters) to produce a 49-46 Obama lead to champion.

Think about it. Either they found every Republican that plans to vote for Obama or so overweighted the poll with Democrats as to be pointless.

Wait a minute. There was a point when people were banned for supporting Romney, and he is still vilified as an evil choice here on FR. So why is shocking that his poll numbers among conservatives are so low, when conservatives are doing nothing but bashing him?

You can’t have it both ways. You can’t tell conservatives not to vote for Romney, and then complain that CNN is lying when no conservatives want to vote for Romney.

The results are so ridiculous, that I think it has to be a push poll!

You shouldn’t be such a skeptic. You do understand that 35% of the electorate is complete moron?

I'm just shaking my head in complete disbelief. Obama shouldn't earn 10% of the vote based on his economic record and "understanding" of basic economics.

I agree 100%. People are either totally insane or incredibly, incredibly stupid. Or the other option is the polls are rigged and so might the election be.

I realized, when Bill Clinton was elected for a second term, that most likely, the only way to save this nation would be revolution, or civil war. We have, fortunately, made some gains over the last few years, but you are correct, even 10% is far too many. Dumbed down populace is the only explanation.

"The poll was of registered voters. The big questions is who will actually get out and vote. "

There is a significant residual of Conservative voters who can't bring themselves (at this point) to say they will vote for Romney. Some will come out for Romney, some not,....but they definitely will NOT be voting for Obama.

So that 49% for Obama is almost certainly his "ceiling." While many voters still do not know Mr. Romney, EVERBODY'S DOG knows plenty about Obama, there is no upside for him on "name recognition," he's maxed out.
