In Rasmussen (THE most accurate poll in 2008 and 2010, by the way), over the last 10 days Mitt has been up +5 twice, +3 several times, +4 today . . . . He is averaging at least +3. And yes, Obama dropped today . . . he can never get above 45% and today is at 43%.

I just hope that Rasmussen is as accurate this election cycle as he has been in the past. He nailed the 2008 election. Aside from Gallup, Ras appears to be an outlier when compared to Pew, Quinn, Fox, CBS/WSJ/NBC ect. Maybe I’m just putting too much into Ras only to be crushed this November? The RAT base sat out the 2010 election cycle but I fear that they will flood the precincts to protect their bene’s this time around. The polling companies have a huge challenge trying to predict turnout. The RATS had a +7 advantage in 2008. I’m not so sure that the Republican party has done a damn thing to motivate turnout. It really will boil done to the Tea Party intensity. Sorry for the rant.

But, but, but, all those smart polls put together over at Politico (and Real Clear Politics) show the One with a commanding lead in every battleground state. How could this be true???

Sarcasm aside, the recent increase in bogus pools with democrats being out-sampled by +8, +10 and higher to Repubs has become - I think- intentional. (Article in WSJ said that the range of people actually voting was at its historic high for Democrats at +7 in 2008 over Repubs with the Repubs best year at even. That gives a pretty good barometer of what makes sense. Maybe +2 or +4 for The One this time?)

I'm with Rush on this - the fear is really setting in and whatever they can do to make it look competitive will be done - even with bogus poll results.

Every time I hear Gallup, or CBS or even WSJ, I'm suspect. Fortunately, there are people a lot smarter than me immediately getting into the weeds regarding the sampling and highlighting the flaws.

It's a lot better for the Repubs than it seems. 8.3% isn't going to help the One much either. Did they even report that at ABC/NBC/CBS?

-23% Daily Approval Rating is where he belongs. This new low for the year is starting to make a believer out of me that Nov 6 may just look like Chick-fil-A did a couple of days ago. Nov 6 should be a rout, but the stupid party certainly knows how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

The WH Clown was lower than this on Thursday, December 01, 2011 at -24.

Correction to my earlier post. Great article at www.brietbart.com on this very issue. Best was +8. Better analysis here.

How can this be? The PU poll had BO at 110% vs -10% for Romney.....or something like that!

To paraphrase LBJ: “Somebody’s full of s**t and it ain’t Rasmussen!”

He's peaking too early.

We need him to stay in 'til November.

The GOP does not have to do much to motivate turnout. The Disaster provides all the motivation necessary and he is doing a great job.

However, the fact that Romney is slamming everything back in the Disaster’s face makes this campaign completely unlike McCain’s.

Meanwhile The Disaster goes from one blunder after the other.

One recent poll showed he only has a 51% approval rate in Illinois and that will slip by November. This turkey is DONE.

It will be interesting to see if Obama can win over Charlotte and Mecklenburg County with his little coronation; there are a lot of liberals there.

The bottom is about to fall out for Obama. He knows it, and is spending like crazy to try and staunch it.

Frankly I don't know what to believe having listened to Karl Rove two days ago say that in the battleground states Obama is holding his own and is slightly ahead. When we begin seeing those polls change than we can rest a bit easier but right now it's a nail biter. We will see an uptick after our Convention but then team Obama and Bill Clinton may also see a slight bump as they're real pros at fooling the masses. The election couldn't come soon enough for me.

I’ve noticed that. Amazingly he doesn’t seem too worried, does he?

Anecdotically, I got a call tonight from a Romney polling firm asking if they can count on me to vote for Mitt on election day. Yes! They thanked me for my future vote, and said that Mitt would be nearby soon for a rally (northern Virginia) and I could see him there.

I told her that I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing him and that I really don't want to vote for him -- I am just voting against the marxist.

She laughed out loud and told me that most of the people she called said the same thing. I tried, but couldn't keep her on the line to get any more info. ;-)

Look at his extensive NIKE attire....any of it made in AMERICA???? I can’t see the logo on the club but I bet it is also a plug to some ‘NON AMERICAN’ company. Big brew-ha-ha over the US Olympic teams attire being made in China, is there a single item on this doofus that isn’t made in another country?

hey wvguy - I live in northern Virginia and I don't particularly want to see him either! I am a Palin fan and did see her and McCain at a rally in Fairfax City in 2008. It was great - it was outdoors and overflowing and the traffic jam was awful, but it was worth it.

However, I am hopeful with Romney. At least he is fighting back and has made a few good speeches in recent weeks and he was great in Israel and Poland.

However, getting Obama out is the goal and anything beyond that is extra at this point.

The choice in November is between electing a new president or coronating a dictator. You’re absolutely right — getting the Usurper out of office is Job #1. Right now its all about damage control.
