I just heard on the news that gas prices are expected to fall by 20 cents by Oct. Surprise, surprise! October Surprise!
Clint is a good man and an American icon, but the speech that blew me out of the water was given by Mitt Romney.
He’s a good man, a damn good man, and I’m going to do my part to make him the next president of this great country.
Keep adding a couple of points to the lead for another 2 or 3 days, and I will be satisfied with the bump.
I would have preferred 51%.
In this very close race, we have Holder’s totally corrupt Dept of Justice and the media in overdrive to steal the election.
not much of a bump....looking for 8 points or more.
I don’t think a .20 cent drop in gas will help the foolOTUS.
Mitt needs to not do anything spectacularly stupid and he will be in like Flynn. Obama needed to be well ahead a month ago — not virtually tied.
Of course spectacularly stupid is possible. Like if Mitt gets up there on his stump and wonders out loud why everybody isn’t a wonderful Mormon like he and his gang are.
Romney needs to keep his wife off talk shows. She was on CBS yesterday morning basically looking down her nose at
Clint Eastwood’s skit.
Wow dawg - like he’s gonna do that....
Too bad for obama that he’s on record saying he wants European type gas prices for us.
His closet is clean- no drugs, no bimbos, a known quantity. All upside from here on out.
Looks like the empty chair needs to start handing out even more taxpayer money to his parasite voter base. The pusher is losing control the junkies who depend on him.
This is a 6 point turn around in the last five days.
I heard recently October historically has the lowest gas prices in a given year. All I know is they had better come down soon.
If you factor in an 80% share of the ‘undecided’ vote breaking for the challenger, you’ll have your 51%.
Talking with some peeps last week that watched Mitt’s speech, we all agreed that he came across as very likeable. I think as the campaign kicks into high gear and people get to know him they will feel likewise.
Exactly! I believe that a much wider margin will be required to offset the fraud that will take place in this election. Many are simply choosing to ignore the corruption that the Dems are capable of.
We'll see what Obama gets from his convention. I expect it'll be treated like the Rapture itself.
This Rasmussen number will exceed 50% for Romney/Ryan within three weeks. Obama is toast and...so is the Democrat Party!!!
After the DNC convention, the pollsters will claim Obama has a huge lead, of course the polls will over sample dems by 20%.
Romney/Ryan just have to run their campaign. Obama and the dems have nothing except personal attacks.
Just be ready for the liberal media to praise Obama for a great speech or claim more people watched or some nonsense.
Every story told by a dem operative that a “friend” really wants to vote for Romney but can’t.....is pure fiction. It’s about turnout in swing states.
That’s not much of a bump, to be honest about it.
I don’t like the word “bump”.
What exactly does that mean?
After the DNC convention, their turn to “bump” will come?
Clint factor indeed. Hey the Dems have more movie stars behind them than the GOP.
Is the American voter so fickle and wishy washy that they get swayed after one rah rah convention?
Not if Israel attacks Iran. Prices will be 10.00 a gallon, many stations will run out, we’ll have odd even days, and purchase limits of 10 gallons at a time.
You reall have no idea how many folks watched the RNC. The TV numbers are nowhere near the “real” numbers. CSPAN & multiple internet channels accounted for millions more viewers. The American people have given up on TV for a reliable source of information. The fact that cable news, FNC gathered ten million people, far above all other TV networks, is proof Americans no long trust or rely on the Obamabot media for factual and unbiased news reporting. The real winners here were CSPAN and the internet!!!
It will take a few more days to fully measure the bounce. This update is based on nightly interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis.
As a result, roughly two-thirds of the interviews were conducted before Romneys speech to the convention Thursday night.
This is a 3-day rolling average. Only one day of this number is post-Romney speech.
Mitt gave a good speech and is at least as good a speaker as Zero, much better in terms of substance.
The disconnect between him and the missus, and those of us who liked Clint Eastwood’s act, is still a little troubling but I think he went a long way toward connecting with the voters in the middle who will decide this election, as they did in 2008.
One thing we all agree on here: Obama’s got to go.
LOL, see my next post! Yup!
Hey, it worked for Dewey!
If dumbo is sure he is going to lose fairly, I have no doubt we will be assisting Israel in attacking Iran in October. Dumbo has nothing to lose by trying to get a rally around him.
The GOP convention has forced Obama to the right, at least in his most recent speech.
Yesterday, I channel surfed and caught the last part of his speech to the troops at Ft. Bliss. He was very pro-Army, pro-defense, pro-military, pro-security — in the speech.
[Of course, if reelected, we know his actions will be just the opposite.]
Obama MUST move to the right in his speeches to get reelected. He can’t speak about his greatest accomplishments — Obamacare and the tax burden it will create, and all his executive orders and their restrictions and regulations.
He sure does. And he can get there via so-called "climate change" legislation.
I've pulled this quote from last night's WSJ article:
"The president views a second term in some ways as a second chance, an opportunity to approach the office differently, according to close aides. He would like to tackle issues such as climate change, immigration, education and filibuster reform.
My guess is the strategy would initiate with filibuster reform (to squash opposition), then move on to imposing "climate change" regulations on us. Failing that he'll outflank opponents by employing the EPA to accomplish it in ways we've never seen. Fuel prices will necessarily soar. It's something to carefully consider for independents and fence-sitters of all stripes. You'd think anyway.
blacks make up 12% of the 2008 vote (5% men, 7% women). Obama got 96% of that vote.
whites make up 75% of the 2008 vote (36% men, 39% women).
stats show that McCain won both the white men and women (ignoring the RATS/LIBS trying to say different) 53% women and 57% men.
The "war on women" is going to back fire and it's showing up in the polling.
11% of the voting age population are 1st time voters who were too young to vote (13-17 in 2008) and they have had to watch those 4 years ahead of them graduate and not find jobs. It will be an interesting subgroup to watch to see if they vote for more of the same, and follow them off the cliff.
Seniors make up 23% of the 2008 voting population and are falling more heavily towards Romney then they did for McCain. This is where the "gap" will be shortened vs. the youth vote going Obama.
Truly, this will be, as i read somewhere, that the older "parents" will votes against their kids, in far great numbers.
Something for the statisticians to chew on.
Still close enough to make Democrat cheating worthwhile.
Of course he is. He needs our military might to help install the Muslim Brotherhood caliphate across the Middle East. Egypt...Libya...and next up, Syria.
I can see how being a classy lady she is, might be a bit uncomfortable with the two times he used the “Romney can’t do that to himself” and then again with “I can’t do that to myself” knowing what the intended phrase was. Just sayin’
Interesting. Do you tell us a bit about how that went down?
Eastwood's speech was the only one that I watched from beginning to end. Brilliant.
Obama is no FDR, and no Truman. And, Romney is no Dewey. :)
While this is nice, more important are the state polls. We need EV’s.
We need to sweep FL, NC, VA, and likely OH. That will be 266 - then any other swing state (IA, NH, MO, WI, CO, NV, MI) will do it.
yeah the more the MSM whines about Clint the more of the tens of millions who didn’t watch the convention go and watch the chair bit where the greatest living American icon tells the country Joe Biden is a freak and his boss Obama is a crappy president who needs to be “let go”... IMHO Clint did Romney a big favor
6 percent are undecided.
I do not understand how anyone can be undecided at this point. Blows my mind.
Right you are!
Any incumbent polling at 44% at this point is in real trouble. If Obama was a Republican the press would be writing his political obituary.
Where are all the missing polls???
In this age of almost daily MSM Dem-biased polls it is curious that after the RNC Convention and Mitt’s “most important speech” there have been ZERO polls published.
No NYT/Wash Post/CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC, etc.
Nothing. Zip, zero, zilch, NADA.
I have a growing suspicion that the so called “bounce” is embarrassingly bad news for President Empty Chair.
