Romney is down within the margin of error and their packing it in.. shessh.
“My plan is to vote for Romney, and let the chips fall where they may. I am at peace. If Obama should win, it’s over.”
_Exactly_. FR never liked MR, but that was during the primary season and it’s time to get over it. People on here who continue to run him into the ground and claim that Newt Gingrich was electable are falling for the DNC Kool Aid, which is to demoralize you so you don’t go out and vote.
You don’t want to see Barry reelected. You really don’t. There is no telling what he has planned for his second term. Abolish term limits and rule as an emperor for the next 30 years? Make another push at single payer HC? Who knows. I would rather not find out.
And too many people on this site are falling for it..
In fact, Obama led Romney in a dozen such favorable characteristics, such as "represents America" or "has the right values." The only such category in which Romney had an advantage was being "a man of faith," as 44 percent picked Romney, who is Mormon, compared to 31 percent for Obama, who is Christian.
I want to see the internals on this poll but I'll take it from these comments above that this poll was very heavily sampled toward Democrats......
These “polls’ are nothing but camouflage so that when the Ratz and commie pigs steal the election, they can use this BS for cover.
i went to the Ipsos main site- they don’t even have this poll on their main page...last poll they have is from yesterday
oh, and btw- if you click on to their poll from Friday there’s no polling data but the following claimer:
“The data were weighted to the U.S. current population data by gender, age, education, and ethnicity. Statistical margins of error are not applicable to online polls. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error and measurement error. Figures marked by an asterisk (*) indicate a percentage value of greater than zero but less than one half of a per cent. Where figures do not sum to 100, this is due to =the effects of rounding.”
This sounds like one of those You.gov “polls.”
Of course not. You think they want you to see the +20 point Democrat oversample???!?
Good old Reuters... the MSNBC of the news feed world.
I see lib friends on Facebook posting like mad with every cartoon, link, and story they can find that bashes Mitt while they swoon over Barry’s every move. They seem scared out of their minds.
Now how the heck can you survey "likely voters" on line and claim that they are a random national sample? First of all, the participants would all have to have Internet access. Secondly, those who participated with Internet access would have to have self-selected themselves by making their e-mail addresses available to the pollsters. And thirdly, even the people who were e-mailed by the pollster would have to have self-sected themselves further by choosing to answer in order to participate in the poll.
Knowing that the pollsters lean to the left, you would presume that the subjects participating in the poll who gave their e-mail addresses to them skew to the left as well, as compared to the general "likely voter" population.
In short, garbage in, garbage out, since the pool of respondents is far from a random sample of the "likely voter" electorate. The pollster's methodology is very questionable, in fact unacceptable, if the true purpose was to predict the outcome in November.
It is sad and disheartening...
BUT WE MUST HAVE COURAGE AND DO WHATEVER WE CAN!!!
I am taking two personal days off just before the election so I can help out..man the phones, drive people to the polls, whatever! I will start to volunteer even earlier.
I want to wake up the next morning and feel like I really tried...no matter the outcome.
The polls are bullshit by the media to promote obama. I.e., the media manipulates them to favor obama.
And don’t forget the supreme court!
At least with MR and Ryan we have a chance. Nothing that they do that is awful could be worse than Obozo. We need the TIME —the next four years—to shore up the true conservatives, keep getting them elected and move the needle more and more to the right.
since the poll is online only it sounds bogus. Anyone can create a fake IP address and vote. I remember during Dancing With The Stars, I would vote for Bristol Palin maybe 20-30 times, created fake email addresses and voted for her. Its not reliable, people can download this IP blocker that changes your IP address every single time so since its only surveyed online it can be easily messed with
I am convinced that if Obama is re-elected(Since he will have nothing to lose) he will come out, congratulate himself for winning the election and say “Capitalism is dead, long live Communism” and the media will swoon for him
Actually, the worse things get the better it is for Obama. If we could just get to 100% unemployment, he would be unbeatable.
exactly..unemployed wont like losing freebees. not all but alot.
BTW, I agree with everything you said. Even the polls that try to show Obama leading also show he is losing support in every demographic. Both can’t be true so they just fudge the numbers so the lamestream media can report it.
It is depressing but the Democrats have taken every presidential election since 1984. Unfortunately, Romney is no Reagan. So I expect that this year will most likely be no exception. Fortunately, it is the battle ground states that matter and this liberal hot-spot will not determine the outcome of the election.
Amen - me too...
NOWHERE can I see the poll internals. PARTICULARLY the breakdown of Dim/Rep/Ind.
This is now becoming COMMON. The lame-stream polls have been exposed as over-sampling DIMS, and so now the bastards don’t give the poll internals!
DON’T BELIEVE THESE FAKE POLLS! THEY ARE TRYING TO DEPRESS US SO WE STAY HOME ON ELECTION DAY.
With the caveat that I don’t lend much credence to intrade, it is interesting to note that Obama has steadily declined on intrade since his speed. He was nearly 60 before his speech, and is now below 57. I guess the gamblers think the jobs data is bigger than the momentary bounce.
I think the future looks bright for the Republicans because they have all these rising young guys like Ryan, Rubio, Jindal, Scott Walker, etc. Who do the Democrats have? Almost all the guys speaking at the convention were old has-beens like Frank, Kerry, Clinton, Ted Strickland, and Biden.
Sometimes I ponder whether the GOP will in time be dominated by young libertarian types who were influenced by Ron Paul. In any case, the MSM was way off when they said in 2009 the Republican Party was a dying group of old white Christian racists. It seems to me that the Democrats are the guys stuck in the past, ie the big government socialism of the mid-20th century. 1965 called and it wants Obama back.
Thanks. 10:1 likes vs. dislikes. On YouTube. Not bad. The polls mean little right now. Follow the money. Romney did $100 million in August. Preezy’s camp has yet to release his. Wonder why. Not.
My parents were democrats in the 40's but by the 60's were both Republicans.OTOH,my aunt...who just died a few years ago at the age of 95,was a democrat 'till the day she died.She was a *devout* Catholic...Mass *every* day,opposed to abortion,"gay" marriage,etc.But she still voted Rat.One day,during one of our discussions,I asked her why she voted Rat despite their positions on numerous issues...she replied "because they give me my Social Security".
McCain did that better and still lost.
That right there is the danger of too many attached to the government for something.
Not falling for it, just seeing the end result of GOP-E’s getting their way again.
I have noticed if a poll says Hussein is ahead, Freppers say the poll is bogus. If Romney is ahead, Freepers say the poll is an honest one.
Who knows if polls are right or not.
You should have asked her how many pieces of silver her social security check can buy.
His other poll is in complete conflict with that robo call poll.
All these polls are pure crap.
The real internal polls would be nice to see .
How many more ways can they throw the BS at us?
We may not have seen anything yet. The only limit is their collective imagination.
This is a newly formed congressional district that was once a Republican stronghold, but now includes a gerrymandered Democratic region.
We cannot rest on our laurels. Get out the vote.
By 2 points with a + /- 3 percent margin of error
so it would be tie wouldnt it?
I think the debates will either save us or sink us... and I so wish Romney would turn into a Newt for these debates. Obama lies like a pro... Too many don’t have any more sense than to believe what comes out of obama’s mouth.
I would like to ask Fox why do they play what the dems say when they know it isn’t true.. they are propagating the lie also. They could at least add a disclaimer.
Wow...if this is what they have to resort to now just to put Obozo ahead, the white house internals must be devastating....
However, that won't stop me from going out as soon as the voting booth is open on election day to vote the b@st@rd and his idiot veep out.
I have no way of finding out what the real poll says. I do, however, believe that Romney must be doing a LOT better than any poll shows. Every poll I have seen has a 3% to 5% difference. The polls cannot be that way all the time.
Yes, it’s precisely that sort of “science” that Stalin used to prove the proles loved him.
In the vernacular, it’s known as “bull sh*t.”
Exactly. They are getting desperate.
Obama Voters need to vote Wednesday Nov 7
Yes, there a many dumb, stupid , imbecilic Americans who would vote themselves into servitude for a promise of bread.
Consider the following; Democrats have fared badly since 2010.
Scott walker demolished the biggest pro-socilaist movements in Wisconsin despite the polls showing his defeat.
Akin has jumped ahead in Mo. once again.
is this election different from 2010 when the democrats were slaughtered?
RAT’s have continued with their Goebbel’s style of polling and campaigning on behalf of their dictator. Welcome to the Left’s propaganda warfare.
I am not buying into their mind games or their bogus polls. Talk to anyone who just walked out of the movie 2016 and ask their opinion of the Dictator in Chief. Between now and November, there are numerous movies, books, and exposes coming out about the Liberal’s God. IMO, by late October, only the bottom feeders, mindless, and modern day Jim Jones Kool Aid drinkers will be supporting him and his goons.
Another thing I’ve noticed: the rampant viral growth of these “fact-checker” websites.
The overwhelming majority of them lean incredibly Leftist. The Obama Truth Squad is out in force!
This would be true of any poll, wouldn't it?
