Posted on 06/26/2012 1:26:52 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
A new poll from We Ask America shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama in Virginia, a key swing state Obama won in 2008. Of the 1,106 likely voters in Virginia polled, 48 percent support Romney, with just over 43 percent supporting Obama and nearly 9 percent remaining undecided.

Unfortunately, this poll is the outlyer.
They were about five points high on the Walker race in Wisconsin.
Virginia (inconceivably) is all tied up.
Moves Virginia from purple to red.
I never thought Virginia was a battleground state anyway.
Virginia is still a red state, unless the democrat is black. Black democrats do better than white democrats here.
Virginia is going to come back over to the GOP this year.
People assume that federal employees will all back Obama but some are smart enough to see he’s killing the goose that’s laying the golden eggs.
Luckily Ubama is only 7% black.
Not to mention North Carolina, which may not go back to blue for quite a while.
The outlier is 2008. Bush backlash plus a liquidity crisis got zero in. Neither will be a factor this time, plus now there's Obama backlash.
“Unfortunately, this poll is the outlyer.”
We shall see.
This is the first poll taken in 22 days.
The last poll had them both at 47% and the poll before that had Obambi with a slight lead. I see a trend here.
All other polls are prior to 6/5, the date of the Wisconsin Recall. Lots has happened between then and now.
I’d bet Romney up 2 or 3. Voter fraud was rampant throughout the Recall Vote here.
Taking an oath of office to uphold the law and deciding not to enforce a law could change polls by 5 to 10 points.
Romney is going to be in Sterling, Virginia tomorrow. I’m going.
Nonetheless, it still has Romney up and undecided at 9%.
Research on this says that a challenger leading with both under 50% almost always wins, although we’re still far out from November.
I got a robo call for that — wish I could go, but we’re in the middle of a move.
Maybe with McDonnell running the state relatively well (unemployement down a lot) people are starting to re-think voting Dem at all here in Va.
I hope it spreads to the down tickets. Although i’m still not over what they did to Newt here.
tough times for Obama.. and even tougher for those he continues to leech off of.. namely, the American taxpayer.
Short end of the stump
Obama leaves Hub on hook for fundraising stop
Outraged taxpayer advocates slammed President Obama for lavishly politicking on the taxpayers dime last night, as Boston ran up a hefty tab providing security so the Democratic incumbent could breeze in and out of town for a series of re-election events.
I’m guessing Romney will be in Virginia a lot this campaign season. Hope you get a chance to see him when it’s convenient for you. I like the sticker I saw here on FR that says something like, ‘vote romney to stop obama: vote conservative down-ticket to stop romney’
That’s the strategy I’m adopting this go ‘round.
Right now things could not be better for the Romney campaign. Obama is floundering out there, making a fool of himself while Romney gets to focus on getting organized and raising money for the battle ahead.
Yes, if we had Ronald Reagan or Sarah Palin as the candidate, we'd be 20 points ahead (just wanted to get that in there). But time to make lemonade out of lemons because Sarah Palin is not walking through that door - nor is she going to pop out of a cake at the convention.
Romneys’ strategy of just laying low and letting obama implode and buirn through tons of cash now, and pandering to all the freak show groups, is working perfectly.
As Obama runs dry on money in late summer and fall, and has burned many bridges by that point, Romney will be over flowing with cash to focus on GOTV and look like the responsible adult while Obama is flailing and flopping all over the place.
Romney is in the cat bird seat right now.
