Posted on 09/07/2012 6:30:38 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
As per yesterday, Thursday September 6th, Romney has taken the lead in most National Polls and the President is behind. You can follow the line graph on Realclearpolitics.com and see this is the first time in months Romney has lead. This is also the latest in the trend of Mitt Romney making up ground and the president losing voters. I heard it said once to not look at numbers but look at trends, going into an election. Romney has been steadily climbing and has passed Barack Obama. As of today the RCP betting line has Obama at 58% to win the election. This number had been as high as 70% in the past as well.
In the latest polls from 24 hours ago, Rasmussen has Romney up by 3% and Gallup has Obama by 1%. Gallup used Registered voters which is far less accurate and historically distort the outcome by about 2-4% in Democrats favor. The Likely voter polls, which are more accurate of the outcome, have all leaned Romney for the past week.
And today, yet another poor jobs report is coming out as I type this and gas has risen in price the last 4 weeks straight to over $4 a gallon yet again.
Hope, Change and wait, wait and wait I guess.
Obama leads by 0.3% Romney’s 3-pt lead in the Ras poll has been cut to 1.
The piss-poor jobs report, however, will blunt any “bounce” Obama gets from the DNC.
So has Romney’s pulling of his ads work? Humm.
Romney’s impression of the situation:
@EricFehrn: Romney on jobless numbers: “If last night was the party, this morning is the hangover” http://t.co/A9yxn8Zq
Romney is suppose to start ‘carpet bombing’ Obama today in the swing states. $100 million ad buy starts today.
That’s the Romney strategy.
Sit back, smile, be the pleasant non-threatening confident guy, don’t do or say anything stupid, and just wait for Obama to implode.
Scared the hell out of me, but amazingly it appears to be working.
Romney wins. Could be a landslide. I refuse to believe this country has slid so far in the cesspool of Sodom and Gomorrah that this anti-Christian muslin could be put back in the White House. All anyone talks about is the economy and how the economy decides who wins or loses. No one ever mentions the millions of votes this moron lost when he came out for queer “marriage” and his continued assault on religious freedom. Americans do not want a socialist running the country and we are America, not some Godless European country where anything goes and to hell with God and anything to do with what’s morally right and wrong. Obama is going to find out Americans are not as stupid as he thinks they are. He’ll do down in history as the absolute worst president in history.
I see Axelrod has gotten Gallup’s numbers to be where he wants them.
Romney has a lot of money to run ads, much more than Obama.
Any bounce for Obama will be due to Clinton nostalgia from we’d night and rapidly fade.
Trend has been Romney’s and will continue to be.
Obama is a broken record, no one but th Kool Aid drinkers are listening to a word he says.
Obama has a max of 42-43% on election day, and frankly his joke of campaign I think he’ll be lucky to hit 40%. I really think it is truly possible this idiot will lose re-election by the lowest margin since Herbert Hoover and honestly could end up with a lower vote percentage than him.
Time wil tell but I really don’t think this is going to be anywhere near close, and the polling while capturing general tends doesn’t seem to reflect remotely what I see on the ground.
Fight like it’s neck and neck but I really think democrats are heading for a humiliating pummeling up and down the ticket.
Karl Rove’s SuperPAC, by itself, has over a BILLION DOLLARS to spend, IIRC. But remember, Mr. Obama has 97% of the media in his pocket, the unions, the NGOs, reformulated ACORN, Nation of Islam, Black Panthers, tree-huggers, Lavender Mafia, etc...
And don’t forget the bounce Obama will get from a liberal convention, which clearly objected on the voice vote regarding support for Israel and for mentioning God in the platform. That will really give him a big bounce! (sarcasm)
About damn time. The freakin’ post turtle should’ve been underwater since December 2010. He has no plan for prosperity, only for punishing the wealth that is left in America.
He is the worst occupant of the Oval Office in the last 100+ years, and millions of us need to remove him from office in 60 days. I hope his “base” can wake the **** up and smell the coffee. They’ll be hurt more by his continued seizure of power than anyone—but somehow, the Democrat base seems to be deluded, much like a battered wife, that “their man” really loves them, he is a “good guy” and “we need to understand” the pressure he is under.
Let’s do the world a favor, America: fire Obamugabe and hire Romney.
I don’t agree it will be a landslide. It comes down to Colorado, Virginia, Iowa, Ohio, Florida, and Wisconsin. Florida is a must win. Obama can only win one of the others.
I am giving Obama Nevada, Michigan, and New Hampshire. I am giving Romney NC.
The piss-poor jobs report, however, will blunt any bounce Obama gets from the DNC.
Also, Ras is on a 3 day rolling average so Obama probably got a small bump from Clinton's speech on Wednesday, which is just showing up in today's numbers. Obama's speech (which surprisingly seems to be getting poor to lukewarm reviews in the press) and the jobs numbers won't be fully reflected until Sunday or Monday. But really I wouldn't pay a whole lot of attention to any poll until late next week when the convention noise works it's way out and we can get a better idea of where the race stands.
Why is it that Obama’s speech was very light on any specifics for a 2nd term, and that’s okay? Yet Obama called Romney to task for Romney not having laid out specifics in Romney’s speech????
Saul Alinsky tactics.
Romney gets a bump from the DNC?
Even as messed up as this country is, the incumbant happily offering more of the same with a terrible economy should not be re-elected.
