WXYZ TV ^ | 6/7/12 | Chuck Stokes

Posted on 06/07/2012 9:27:29 AM PDT by tellw

If the General  Election were held today, 46-percent of 600 likely voters would cast their ballot for Romney, and 45-percent would vote to re-elect Obama.  In a statewide poll conducted last month, President Obama was leading Governor Romney,  47-percent to 43-percent.

I was not expecting this, at least not this early in the race. http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/political/exclusive-poll-romney-holds-slight-michigan-lead-over-obama

President Bush got a tad under 48% in MI in 2004, so the state should be competitive this year. I thought that Obama’s GM and Chrysler bailouts would give him the edge in MI, but maybe MI voters are smarter than I gave them credit for.

And you can bet WXYZ sampled Metro Detroit and not more conservative parts of the state to the north and west.

Simply stunning.

A lot of boomers like me have fond memories of his dad as our Governor.

I see Michigan going to Romney.

Nice development there. Also, Romney has pulled even in CO, per today’s Rasmussen.

MI and WI will both be in play.

Even if Romney wins neither one, it will still hurt Obama to have to campaign in both.

The more states in play, the better it is for the challenger.

Say, did anyone hear what Obama said about “Polish death camps”?

The wild card in WI and by extent MI is the unions expended so many million$ going all in for the recall in WI. I can't imagine they'd be able to regroup quickly enough to match their spending of previous elections.

Obama is toast in Nov.

This race is already statistically over, just Obama and his handlers aren’t willing to accept it.

Romney OUTRAISED Obama last month... He’s lost the rust belt, with the exception or Illinois & MN. FL, NC, VA are lost... Obama will not and cannot win, his top is 42-43% of the popular voate and how he’s running his campaign, he won’t even get that.

By November the real story will be, WILL REPUBLICANS ACTUALLY GAIN 13 SEATS and take the senate by a Filabuster proof majority.

The presidential race ended, when it was clear Republicans were not going to put up someone who could be painted as something more scary and dangerous than Obama. Romney for his many faults, cannot be painted this way. Obama’s over.

Oh don’t get me wrong, I’m sure some polls will claim the race is close long past the time its apparent its not, just like they tried to pretend the race was tightening in WI, or that the spenditure difference was why, regardless of the fact every poll pretty much told the story long ago, that voters had long made up their minds and all the political advertising didn’t change any statistically noticeable vote.

Lets look at even WI exit polling shall we.... When asked who they were going to vote for or president, they broke down as 44% Obama, 37% romney and 19% neither. Guess where those 19% are going on election day??? Nearly all will go for NOT OBAMA. If Obama cannot exit poll better than 44%, in a race this close to November, he’s not going to pull more than that much of the vote in that state in Nov. And if he loses WI by 8-10 points, he’s going to lose MI, PA, by similar margins and OH, IA and IN by even larger margins. The Midwest/rust belt is LOST to Obama, MN and IL are the most likely not to switch, but even they cannot be counted on as impossible.

Don’t kid yourself, about how the exit polling (later polls fixed for the obviously sampling flaws that showed a tight race) somehow showed WI was in good shape as far as Obama was concerned for NOVEMBER.. they did not, they showed data that should have had any political advisor on the Obama 2012 campaing crapping their pants.

If Obama is polling 44% in Wisconsin, he’s politically a dead man walking, don’t let anyone tell you differently.

If he’s Polling in a general poll at 50-50 in any state among “registered voters”, he’s truthfully down 5 points.
If Romney is Tied or Slightly ahead in polling in MI under those circumstances, Obbama will not only lose MI, but lose it big.

The Presidential election is over (short of some unforseen event shifting the completely political landscape) and Obama will have the distinction of replacing Carter as the worst president in the modern age. Not only that, but also be the ONLY president in the modern age to leave office with fewer people working the day he left office, than the day he took office.

Since this guy with political talent and abilites that don’t rate college intramurals, is trying to play in the majors.. and failing miserably, might as well end this post in true sports fashion....

Hey Obama...

Nah Nah Nah Nah...
Nah Nah Nah Nah...
Hey Hey Hey...

GOOD BYE..

This is a shocker. If Republicans can maximize turnout outside of the Detriot/Flint/Bay City areas, who knows?

I wasn’t expecting this either but nor am I shocked this state was always gonna be in play unless Obama was up big. Close in 2004, Glove was born there, has potential for big GOP wins (2010 Governor).

If we get this or PA on election night, it’s over.

Good analysis.

I don’t think any “October Surprise” would help the evil bastard.

“Glove?” Did you refer to Mittens as “Glove”?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just pooped on my couch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to do an all-empompassing MEGA REPLY PING for the other ~80 pings...

*All RATS must be snuffed out.

*Kate Upton = BOOBIES!!!

*RE: MI, MN, PA, CO etc. Glove will win 38-40 states. I think I read that prognostication someplace else...oh yeah, ME!

*77 year old nuns with libidos...sounds like the basis of a new line of porno flicks.

*Amanda Bynes next stop will be porno, nice rack and all as she races LiLo to the bottom of the “star” pool...

*MI House write-ins: I'm confused...too many people.

*First Lady of France = “EARTH WHORES” Ping!!!

*CA House races: Again, if the RATS are getting picked off in CA, they're doomed on a Titanic-esque level. YAY!!!

*Speaking of CA House races, wouldn't Tom McClintock make a great VP? Yes, it won't happen, but he's really good. Daryl Issa, too.

*Glove

*Suicide bombing on a church/Afghan schoolgirls poisoned in anti-education attack: Another situation to apply August, 1945 tactics to.

*Mila Kunis = Ukrainian hotness.

*Louis Xiii Black Pearl 1.75 Liter: I just paid $11.99 (no bottle deposit crap) for a 12 pack of Blue Moon Pale Ale in NH.

*Erotic gay wrestler is fundraising for Elizabeth Warren’s US Senate campaign: I don't anyone that's voting for this quack. Even my public-school-teacher sister is voting for Brown. I was beyond stunned to hear that.

*John Q to host fundraiser (running against Alan Grayson in FL): Alan Grayson gives self-hating, pro-Nazi Jews a bad name.

*Schools Boss Is Sacked Over Explicit E-Mails: Better living thru chemistry.

*Glove

*All RATS must suffer to their last (bad) breath.

‘nite all!

I’ve been saying it for weeks.

Election night, for POTUS anyway, will be over early.

Yes, I’ve called him “Glove” a few times now, great right?

I’m not comfortable calling him “Mitt” lest anyone think I like him. And “Mittens” just sounds wrong to me.

Did you hear about KJ and Hondo?

“Election night, for POTUS anyway, will be over early.”

If so, we need to do something about the Democrats in Congress and state legislatures.

Great? IT'S AWESOME!!! I LOVE IT!!!

Henceforth, Willard shall be called “Glove”!

“Did you hear about KJ and Hondo?”

Yes! I was wondering when Kevin Johnson and John Havlicek were going to make comebacks. The C's could have used them tonight. Although no matter who wins the East, OKC is going to win the championship.

I was at an event at a museum ~5-6 years ago and Menino spoke well; no screw-ups. I must of caught him on an off night.

That thought should make any fence-sitters sprint to the voting booth, hold their nose and vote against the possibility of four more years of the Kenyan.

We can survive Glove; we can't survive anymore Obama, period.
