Mitt Romney has caught President Obama in Michigan, according to a poll released Thursday. Obama still holds a slight edge in the poll, 46.9 to 45.5, but that’s within the survey’s 2.3 percent margin of error. The poll was conducted by Michigan-based political consultants Foster, McCollum, White & Associates. It’s the second straight poll to show Obama and Romney in a dead heat in the Wolverine State. Romney held a 1-point advantage in an EPIC-MRA poll released last week. Obama once had a commanding lead over Romney in Michigan, up by double digits as recently as mid-May, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls.

it is not just the Du crowd...there are going to be more than a few freepers who are going to be devastated if obama doesn’t win....I lost count of the DUfreepers who have said “Romney has NO CHANCE”.

Well, the reality is, he does have a chance. A decent one, in fact.

And, as you note, it could roll into a blowout.

Complacency like that is dangerous...very dangerous.We must assume until the last polling station in Hawaii/Alaska is closed that this is absolutely win-able but is gonna be razor tight..."Florida 2000" tight.Any other attitude is a sure recipe for disaster.

You are correct. But following a Romney win, should it happen, we will never hear from the trolls who assured us "Romney will be ground into the dirt" etc etc.

Just like all the wise guys who ridiculed the idea of a housing bubble, back about five years ago...

Michigan, like many states, has a large number of Conservatives. Detroit is a Dem stronghold and voter fraud RULES. Times are getting tough - with Granholm no longer in office to protect the Unions and welfare slugs who dominate the city and the surrounding areas, the numbers are likely down and make it a little harder to steal the State. Hard telling what will happen but we can hope to see Michigan turn Red!

We have to do better than just even or a few points ahead.

Unless we are clearly well ahead, the rat crook Democrats will pull enough bogus votes out of the major urban areas to screw us.
