Swing state poll: After picking Ryan, Romney now leads in Ohio, Virginia ó and Florida
Hot Air ^ | AUGUST 14, 2012 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 08/15/2012 2:33:13 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Via Guy Benson, no self-respecting eeyore would leave a headline as rosy as the above unchecked, so here’s me checking it right off the bat. According to Gallup’s tracker, Romney’s gotten almost no bounce from the Ryan pick — yet. They’ve seen a bit of movement in the last two days, so there may be a “delayed bounce” coming, but little in the two days before that. In fact, here’s Nate Silver scanning across the dial:

Romney's Ryan bounce across 11 polls thus far: +5, +5, +2, +2, +2, 0, 0, 0, -2, -2, -2. So, take your pick. +0.9 on average.

Seems like there’s been a bunch of articles on polling today. Thankfully, most look like decent-to-good news.

One more swing state, and that’s it for Obama.

Romney/Ryan need to lock down these states and maximize the amount of defense Obama has to pour into other states.

What Rummnie and Ryan NEED to do is go on the offense about what Obamacare is going to do to this Republic. They need to attack the Senior that Obamacare CUTS $750 BILLION FROM MEDICARE!!! And that this is going to seriously impact seniors. No operations, give you a pill and let you die. English medicine. They need to show how the many foreign and military related mistakes he has made that has cost lives of our troops and other civilian deaths by Gitmo releasees, the Soviet sub in the Gulf undetected for nearly a MONTH!!! Can you say screwed if a Soviet attack sub can come in a dump a few dozen nukes on the nation. No miss from there. They have to attack now and keep it up. GIVE NO QUARTER!!!

Polls, shmoles. The contest is over when a prominent Dem has a Wellstone moment. Disheartening polls can help them get there by frightening them, but until somebody major wigs out on Prime Time non-cable TV, it’s not a done deal.

It's over when Mitt Romney takes the oath of office. Until then, put nothing past the Liberal Messiah and His minions. There was a shooting today at the Family Research Council. Do you think it's too much for them to threaten the Electors (as in the Electoral College) or to attack the Republican Convention? Remember Chief Justice Roberts.

He’s gonna need at least a 10 point advantage to overcome the fraud vote.

Just sayin.

Portman is my Senator, and I’m not unhappy that he wasn’t chosen as VP. He can do more and be more effective in the Senate.

I was polled again today by a group who called themselves Independent Political Research. ( I think that was their name - they gave a toll free number if I wanted to check them out).

I, of course, voted straight Republican to their questions. It was a computer call - no one live on the other end.

Let us hope that this trend grows and work to see to it that it does. Continue to sell and explain Ryan’s plan, while pointing out that radical is getting no votes (like Obama’s budget) where as moderate is the bipardision Majority support Ryan’s very real budget has gotten

We have such a wealth of information and targets here this should be a turkey shoot, what we lack is resources to get the message out. So let us make drama, and show up on the media whenever we can to point out theses obvious show the lies of Obama’s propaganda.

They’re already forcing Obama to spend time and money in Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina and Colorado.

(Don’t forget folks; there are two things in Colorado in Romney’s favor: 1. A gazillion Mormons and 2. High unemployment.)

Not really sure I understand your comment. But, Joe Biden has had numerous moments that came close to being a “wig-out”. But, let’s face it 47 percent of America (the Dems, Libs, baby-killers, same-sex marriage proponents and the Hollywood crowd) would not care if you produced a video of Obama in bed with a dead girl or a live 12 year old boy........THE DON’T GIVE A CRAP!!!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A 10 point advantage is 10 percent. So, you’re saying that one in ten (1/10) Americans who vote, vote fraudulently. Not so my friend. I’d love to see a 10 point advantage, but, it’s not happening. So, let’s not make this worse than it is.

OK, the Judge ruled that the Voter ID Law can stand. BUT, it is being appealed to the PA Supreme Court, and, they will probably have to rule before Election Day. Whaddya think they will do? Any idea?
