That’s what I think.

I call BS on any polls by Gallup.

Funny thing... every other poll tonight shows the opposite trend. I believe no one at this point.

Amazing how the polls changed after a threat. Me thinks the polls are skewed.

I am sickened by these polls.
Do I think they are contrived, yes.
Having said that, I really beleive obama will win re-election.
I live in California, so for me, the outcome has already been decided.
We are (the USA) in a path that is not what we ever imagined.
Ok, never mind................I’ll watch mindless TV and get over myself.

You are correct LLS. These polls are skewed by the leftist media to dispirit us. Pay no attention.

The swing states are the only polls to watch and it’s too soon for them to be accurate.

Short version:
• Gallup releases poll results favorable to Romney
• Axelrod suggests Gallup has some methodology problems, and maybe they should come the WH to explain how they do things
• Gallup execs interpret this as Godfather style veiled threat
• DoJ abruptly revives lawsuit from 2009 against Gallup
• Gallup’s poll results abruptly favor Obama again

In a few days, Obumby will be 60-30 over Romney and Chris Matthews will be one giant orgasmic tingle.

Romney needs to point out that Obama on 9/11 didn’t have time to meet with Netanyahu, but he had time to talk with “DJ Pimp With a Limp.”

That would be devastating.

Rush was all over this today, and logically concluded these polls are utter and complete bull shite! These polls over sample Dems, and also play games with likely and registered voters.

Oh yes, Gallup's also been threatened by Axelrod.

FUG! I'm off to make a donation to Romney.

I think Gallup has been effectively taken hostage by Obama and this ludicrous fourteen point lead is Gallup's way of signaling to the country that they are not acting of their own volition. (I'm semi-serious.)

Actually it is more than a threat. The Justice Department joined a lawsuit filed against Gallup and few weeks ago.

Real or not, an-offer-they-can’t-refuse or not, Gallup uses a 7-day moving average. This number includes all days of the DNC and no days of the RNC.

This comparison is worthless. We now have changed demographic significantly different from the Reagan area. We now have locked in tribal votes (Hispanic; Black; Florida Jewish bloc); union workers SEIU; NEA; Hordes of Lesbians and Gays released like a plague out of the closet they habited in the 1980s; NARAL; and Wall Street and Silicon Valley mega-millionaire supporters. Now even formerly solid red states like Va and Fl have become swing states. Reagan carried CA. This is now unthinkable. Realistically, the Gallup poll is distressing. Laura Ingraham nailed it. If we cannot win this one, lets close down the GOP, and I say that we drive out of office every single RINO.

Gallup is akin to the band playing on the Titanic (read Obama) whilst she sank.

And don’t forget about the 50% who pay no taxes and are on some type of government dole. They are gonna vote their pocketbooks too. That to me is the point of no return.

Gallup is simply (and realistically) factoring in the the fraudulent voting results that have routinely carried the day for the democrats many times.

Criminals, phony early & foreign ballots, criminal ballot place management, "surprise" location of "misplaced" ballot boxes whenever an particular election race is close, the cemetery vote, cross-jurisdiction voting (eg. stand outside almost any suburban MD voting place and watch the busloads of voters on DC Metro buses out of DC being marched into the MD voting places), and the motor-voter laws set up to allow illegal Mexican border-crossers to vote.

Factoring these into any honest poll is probably best if we want to see what the chances are for freedom & liberty ever returning to our Nation.

Rumney, if someone can get him awakened from his McCain-like trance, will need an "honest/accurate" poll lead of 10-20% to have the slightest chance for ousting the fascist peacock in the WH.
