It was Gallop, they are being sued by the DOJ
McCain took Duvall by a scant 1% in 2008. 192k to 197k, and the gimme dat welfare crowd has expanded mightily in North Florida in the last four years. If you don’t think R2 needs to fight for every vote your not accounting for the effect of the growth the entitlement crowd.
If the kids knew 0bama will seize full control over INTERNET CONTENT, that might wake them up a bit. It's difficult to overcome years of labor union-controlled teachers intentionally dumbing-down students so they'll become Socialists who vote 'Democrat'.
Stupid people I get, there have always been stupid people here, wanting their free handouts and listening to whatever celebrities like the Kardashians tells them to do, that has always been the case here, what I dont get is the Jews..I am Jewish, my family immigrated here from Israel in the mid 60s. My uncle and aunt voted for Obama in 2008, this year they are voting for Romney. They know that Romney is good for Israel and that Obama is a disaster. I just dont understand how Jews living in this country, supposedly caring about Israel and its existence, would vote for a guy who wants to destroy it.
Rasmussen had Romney ahead by 1 in the swing state poll
Yup, this is the Gallup organization the Obama Administration threatened to sue, if they didn’t change their polling numbers.
That’s why I fear higher unemployment numbers actually help Obama....unemployed people think the Republicans will reduce their unemployment benefits.
I think that before The Gipper kicked Jimmuh Carter’s behind, they had him trailing, but I honestly don’t know how anyone with an IQ above single digits could vote for the bastard Hussein!
Right now Romney had money to burn and Obama is running out. The attention span of most Americans is 2 minutes. Why spend money now? Wait to use it effectively.
Kids want free toys, but yeah if they knew that Obama wants to seize full control over the Internet that might wake them up, but when it all comes down to it, they want free goodies, whatever they can get their hands on for free they want it. They think Obamacare is awesome, yay free health care, what can be bad right. They should go to Canada and see how “awesome” socialized medicine is maybe they would wake up, but when someone hears “Free” thats all it takes. Free health care, free gas, free phones, what they dont get is that someone else has to pay for it, WE ALL end up paying for it but they dont care, its free to them
Gallup has a Presidential Approval pole where the asked 10,000 adults about his presidency. Of Course I don’t know what adults are in there survey!
Go look at the race between Carter and Reagan and get a grip.
Fresh, you people can be an easy bunch to scare.
Just the other day it was reversed, so what suddenly changed it? Seriously. If he gets in, we are so screwed. Kiss your 401K’s, etc. goodbye. Kiss your insurance goodbye. And the worst of it is when God kisses US goodbye for mocking Him.
Just relax folks.
The thing I love about rugged individualists like conservatives is their ability to handle adversity.
Or inability, as the case may be.
Stay calm and carry on. To Victory
You really smell to me like some Daily Kos or DU troll with all of your incessant bad mouthing and attempts to demoralize being puked out on every thread.
Er, ARG (one of the most accurate in 08) has Romnet @ 49% in likely voters in a Dem skewed poll yesterday, an Ras had Romney at 50 last week. Gallup=registered, so right away you have to adjust by 2 .
If you look at the overall trend, Romney should overtake the Kenyan Commie soon.
RNC was very critical of Obama...
I guess you missed this as well as several other stories.
In Nevada, Paul Ryan says Obama is good at giving speeches, bad at creating jobs
Washington Post Friday, September 7, 2:13 PM Felicia Sonmez
SPARKS, Nev. Seizing on a new jobs report that showed the pace of the countrys economic recovery remains sluggish at best, Paul Ryan on Friday argued that the best way to turn around Americas fortunes is to put a new president in the White House.
Flanked by six red, white and blue truck cabs and with a rugged mountain backdrop behind him, Ryan told a crowd of several hundred people at a trucking equipment company just outside of Reno that the jobs report was some pretty disappointing news. Why are you so quick to tell LIES to attack out side? What the hell is wrong with you?
Yes, and as of last July, the unemployment rate in Duval County was 9.5%. Obama’s not going to make up any ground there from 2008.
Ideally, you’d want to run ads in every market, encouraging your base to come out. But there’s only a fixed amount of money to spend. So in areas you’re going to win (like North Florida), you do a lot of grassroots campaigning - you get the county GOP organizations involved to register more Republicans and get them out to vote.
1. Crist let open the flood gates for voter fraud with non stop early voting and we know why he did that now !
2. FL cleaned up all of its voting rolls
3, the new voter id laws are in effect now.
Good bye massive Acorn voter fraud in Fl in 2012.
The debates are about specific plans. Unless he blows the debates, this is Mitt’s to lose.
I am because all the excuses for the bad poll numbers I believed last time around then, well, you know.
“If Communism is what people want, I dont know what more to say.”
A lot of people want to retain and guarantee their government perks. They will vote self interest regardless of the impact on the economy. The best way to get this huge segment of our society to vote is the scare them, convince them that “those other guys want to take away what I’ve given you.” Also they have been convinced that profits are evil. They will vote to regulate and confiscate business profits. Free money rules. Even though their beliefs reflect their Marxism, they do not care.
Another poll has Romney up 4 with likely voters the AGK poll I think
Thanks. That’s a good thing to know. I thought R&R were not around this weekend.
This country is fluked if Obama wins a second term.
He must of meant this one
Registered voters, jobs report not factored in, full week of media orgasms over Obama - not surprising.
Gallup running scare of Axelrod lawsuit. Look for Obummer to lead any Gallup poll through election day, then lose big time. No way in 40 hells this loser is reelected. Aint gonna happen.
Democrat leaning poll of likely voters
The other pollsters obviously don’t want to be sued by Axelrod so they are falling in line. However, Mitt better take the gloves off and get on with it. He has so much to use. Why doesn’t he talk about the scandals surrounding BO? There’s a huge list he could use. He’d better start.
I’m sorry, but large percentages of Jews have been associating themselves with the left for many generations now - both here in the States, in Europe and elsewhere. Not 100% sure of all the reasons for this phenomenon, but they seem to fear the majority religion wherever they live and work to support secular governments and laws to restrain religion. Jews are very active in the ACLU, People for the American Way, etc. Unless Obama nukes Israel or something blatant like that, he is going to get 75% of the Jewish vote. While I very much support Israel, pursuing the Jewish demographic is a waste of the Republicans time. They aren’t going to win it no matter what they do because they can’t “out-secular” the Democratic Party.
Every election is always close (via polls) until the last month. Been that way for years even when we look back and see that the results, except 2000, were always one way or the other, easily predicted by just looking at the overall mood of people around you.
Someone please respond: I have heard many times that if the incumbent isn’t at 50%, he’ll never win. 50% of what? Favorability? 50% job approval? 50% Obama vs. 48% Romney of whatever? What is that 50% rule of thumb?
The carpet-bombing ads are ready to begin.
Gentleman, start your engines!!!!!
Regarding the “carpet bombing”.. have you seen the ads Romney is running in the swing states? They are generic milquetoast. It is carpet bombing with marshmallows.
Specific programs, ok, but if the Romney people do not step up and get more aggressive with their messaging they are missing a huge opportunity.
50% voter preference. The theory being that an incumbent is already known to the voters and that the so-called "undecideds" are withholding their vote because a.) they are less than satisfied with the incumbert and are b.) actively considering the challenger.
As a consequence, the vast nmajority (2/3 or more) of "undecideds" will break toward the challenger once they are forced into making a decision.
Thus, an incumbent who cannot muster a 50% share of voter preference is unlikely to ever reach that level -- and will likely lose.
your post 116 is right on the money.. These people will vote for Zero even if they are eating from dumpsters..Romney wont win.. Zero has his followers convinced that the republicans are the enemy that caused all this..
If I remember correctly, Isn’t Gallup under investigation by Obama’s DoJ... any correlation here?
And besides, the media needs a horse race right up till election day, to keep the masses hyped and watching commercial news outlets...
He would be down 20 if he were white...
People need to remember that Dukakis had a 17 POINT LEAD in the Gallup poll after the 1988 Dem convention. And our candidate that year was George Bush I, not a strong candidate. Sort of a Romney-esque guy.
Just google “Dukakis 17 point lead” if people don’t believe this.
Really doesn't matter. Gallup is just as screwed up and any other poll.
In itself, that point could be the game-changer. The welfare class is less of a political threat than you might think because of their entitlement mentality. They're convinced they have the right to welfare while doing nothing in exchange. That "nothing" includes getting off the couch and voting Democrat.
That entitlement mentality is the likely cause of the low turnout rates in the welfare culture. They're so sure they're entitled, many of them don't vote their interest because they see no need to.
On the other hand, a guy in his 50s who needs the assistance is more likely to pull the lever for the (D) to show he's not an ingrate. Believe it or not, your Republic may be saved by entitled ingrates who get the idea that voting Dem in exchange for their benefits is beneath them
Speaking of polls, didn’t the polls the day before the Wisconsin recall election have Scott Walker defeating the recall forces by 1 point? After the vote, we all saw that Walker actually defeated the recall by 7 points.
In 2008, Obama won the independents by 8 points.
If Romney is really 15 points ahead with independents at this time, and maintains that margin through November 6th, then Romney is the 45th president of these United States.
