Obama’s convention bounce has left the building.

This doesn’t take into account his latest debacle with the ambassador.

Good sign, but need to show a lead in Florida and Ohio. Would also feel a little better if more than one poll, which I had never heard of before, showed a lead in Virginia.

Romney...in reality...probably never lost the lead. If election were held today, landslide, favor, Romney.

no doubt

Thanks for this news. The Fox poll had me depressed and the Intertade and Nate Silvers odds of Obama winning are higher than they were previously.

This latest debacle could cut both ways. 1. people tend to rally around the president when the country is under attack; 2. the entire news cycle yesterday was bashing Romney for his comments on the issue.

The embassy incident showed gutless and weak this admin has made the US image to be.
Despite the best efforts of the MSM to protect Obama, most Americans are not stupid and can see that this admin apologising makes our country look weak.

I wonder if Rasmussen, like a lot of other polls, uses voter turn out % from the 2008 election cycle. If they do, they're polling 9-13% more democrat voters from the last election.
IF Rasmussen, the poll I think is the most accurate, is using the last election to determine voter turn out, Romney is doing quite well. He could easily be 10 points ahead.

I really don’t think the typical Obama voter looks at the 9/11 assassination of an ambassador as an attack on our country, they’re too busy looking at pictures of the Kardashians.

Only one man looked presidential during all of this. Mitt Romney.

I still haven’t seen a single Obama sign here in union rich western PA.

That's usually the case because when America is under attack, the president typically gets out front, talks to the public, and assures them that we will fight back.

But Obama has been so weak, while Romney is the one being strong; this issue is showing how badly we need a new foreign policy course.

And regardless of what the press says, people know that Romney is right.

If people rally around a president whose administration apologizes to these killers, who is flying out to Las Vegas to campaign and going on Letterman while our embassieS are uner attack, and after our ambassador is murdered by the local citizens, then the imbecility is what we need to be most concerned with.

So now the question is: Will Obama be hurt or helped by the Libya-Egypt situation. Common sense says he will be hurt. In actuality, it could be different. We should have a sense of it tomorrow. We will know for sure by Saturday.

I doubt it. There are simply more democrats than republicans. Almost all liberals are “democrats”, while most conservatives are independents. Most people that define themselves as “republican” are moderates. Let’s be honest, conservatives think for themselves. Why do you think so many arguments erupt on FR, while if you go to DU, they are all singing “Kumbaya”?

which just shows that the media still has far too much power to control what the majority thinks. Obama spent the last 6 months of 2008 bashing everything Bush was doing. Kerry spent 2004 doing the same. Personally, I had not problem with it then (I felt like they were just demagogue the issues but oh well, that’s the game). The idea that you aren’t criticize foreign policy is a ridiculous one. What Romney said was fine, and timid at that. The media never questioned what he was saying (The white house did walk back what they said which WAS an apology). Listening to the coverage (online clips mostly) is a reminder that the Media REALLY wants Obama to win and I don’t know if their is much Mitt can do about it being the person he seems to be

Rasmussen should expect to have several SEIU thugs show up at his house late at night on the orders of David Axlehead to discuss his poll sampling methods.

Spot on! Dems are constantly oversampled...

The List: Which presidential polls were most accurate?
http://blog.chron.com/txpotomac/2008/11/the-list-which-presidential-polls-were-most-accurate/

The Pew Research Center and Rasmussen Reports were the most accurate in predicting the results of the 2008 election, according to a new analysis by Fordham University political scientist Costas Panagopoulos.

The Fordham analysis ranks 23 survey research organizations on their final, national pre-election polls, as reported on pollster.com.

On average, the polls slightly overestimated Obama’s strength. The final polls showed the Democratic ahead by an average of 7.52 percentage points — 1.37 percentage points above his current 6.15-point popular vote lead. Seventeen of the 23 surveys overstated Obama’s final victory level, while four underestimated it. Only two — Rasmussen and Pew — were spot on.

The left is going epileptic over this poll. The typical crap, “Rasmussen is a Republican Stooge” (They fail to mention that the “Republican Stooge” had Obama up five points like most other polls after the convention, or that Rassmussen was the closest in both 2008 and 2010.) They keep pointing toward Gallup which had Obama up 7 yesterday, but don't seem to care that Gallup polls everybody and doesn't narrow it down to likely voters like Rassussen, and besides there is the little issue of Gallup being ran by Axelrod...)

The convention bounce is gone and unlike McCain Romney does not apologise and does not hold back in attack. This will encourage our base and increase turnout.

That Nate Silver is full of chit. His “odds” are worthless because he’s NOT TAKING BETS! You can’t have meaningful odds on an event unless there is wagering! It’s like playing poker with fake money, people will over bet and fold much less if they stand to lose nothing. What does Nate Silver stand to lose? Nothing!

I'm no Romney supporter, but he did absolutely nothing wrong in speaking out. It was not a debacle at all. It was necessary. He said exactly the right things. Personally, I would have nailed Obama to the wall even more, but, then again, I'm not running for the presidency.

A candidate for the presidency, first, should be able to speak out about breaking world events. Second, ANY citizen should be able to speak freely, and that includes candidates.

A “friend” of a former friend just Facebooked her claim that someone, and given their politics the implication is the Romney campaign is posting pictures of the dead ambassador on line for political purposes. Know anything about that?

And the enemy, the MSM, is on full court press with all cloaks of objectivity being thrown out the door. They are hammering Romney day and night. Even Fox streamed a campaign speech for awhile of O in Vegas. Our media is ruining this country.

I expect another drop back at Ras. The media still wields the largest stick in the bunch; they are emboldened, they are the brown shirts and the fifth column now. They are the enemy. They gave us Obama, almost succeeded in giving us Gore and Kerry. They are the true destroyers.

God help us all until they either wake up or are destroyed.

Good to see. Romney’s still very much in the game. Like other FReepers, I’m hoping for some good news out of Ohio and Virginia, but there’s still two months left.

I do think Romney needs to be a bit more aggressive hammering home the economic issue. Contrary to MSM spin, things are NOT getting better. Gas prices are spiking, food prices are getting ridiculous, the real unemployment figure is 11%+, and there’s no sign of a V-shaped recovery in the near future. Yeah, the financial flustercluck was terrible. It was also addressed four years ago. The mess we are in is due to bad leadership and bad policy, end of story.

Not only did he do nothing wrong, he absolutely nailed it with the correct phrase. The Cairo embassy apology WAS disgraceful. I'm not a great fan of Mitt, but I'm going to say when he did the right thing, and this was the right thing.

It's only the meme of the journolistas (aka the LSM) that somehow this is all Romney's fault, and Bambi did everything oh so right........

The thing is, now we’re in a race. This is truly close..

Then Romney needs to fix things, because this is just about the last time we’ll win otherwise.

Here in DuPage County (West Suburban Chicago Area), I see a small rectagular "Obama-Biden" bumper sticker but NOT very often. I think I have seen maybe three in the last several weeks. To be fair, I have seen one Romney - Ryan sign on my block. This time in 2008, Obama signs were EVERYWHERE.
