Don’t these idiots know that we look at the internals now because they have lost all credibility? Apparently not.
“Wonderful. We are going to have 4+ more years of this stumble bumb.”
Regrettably, I sense you’re correct, regardless of the other remarks in this thread that ignore the message while attacking the messenger.
Ohio and Virginia are bellwethers, and Romney is faring poorly in both of them.
I sense the core of the problem isn’t so much Romney per se, but the more troubling reality that like other “battleground” states, both OH and VA are on the verge of “tipping” to the blue side, as Colorado has recently done.
If that’s the case, it’s going to be tough for the Republicans to win the presidency again without them.
Remember back here on FR two years ago?
“The dog catcher could beat Obama.”
“The dog could beat Obama.”
“A ham sandwich could beat Obama.”
What the heck happened?
“Obama has a double-digit lead over Romney as to who would better handle foreign policy.”
Now I know this poll was a joke.
LOL! Dims over sampled by 18, they must be trying to fool themselves. We will by a landslide.
This is the poll I answered Tuesday and I`m disappointed.
Romney has a lot of work ahead of him these last few weeks. We still have a shot at this if we put aside our misgivings about Romney and turn out en masse on election day. There`s no room for apathy or stay-at-home disgruntlement...not this time.
Come Nov 6, this is it. More has never been at stake for the heart and soul of America. If 0bama is somehow defeated, America lives to fight another day. If not, it`s game..set..match...and we`re done as a country.
Pray for a miracle ...pray for some kind of implosion by Obama...pray for Romney to have three flawless debates.. and pray for turnout like we`ve never seen ever before.
Where did you see the sampling demographics?
I couldn’t find it in the article, maybe I overlooked it.
Terrific stuff. Many thanks.
Heh, yeah, right. Partisan media shills ping. Thanks Publius804.
Nope. The professional polls such as Rassmussen show Romney tied or ahead in both.
Polls are some of the easiest statistical measurements to manipulate. The problem here is too many people want to treat all polls as equal. They aren't. There are serious polls and junk polls. NBC/Marxist is an example of a junk poll.

Gee if Obama let’s more diplomats get killed maybe Obamas poll numbers will surge more.
Unfortunately, that may be the case. Gotta support the Prez in a time of crisis when American lives are at risk. Just think about it, do you really think the Jihdists want to welcome President Romney next January.
We should learn a little about which way things are going to move from Rasmussen’s Friday poll. Romney is up by one today. Will that lead grow or shrink tomorrow?
MSM and the pollsters are ignoring the absolute loathing for Barry everywhere. I do mean loathing and disgust; I do mean everywhere.
So true. I don’t see Barry taking Florida or NC. Romney is gaining in Ohio also.
If the Turd in the Punch Bowl wins re-election, it can ONLY be due to the fact that America’s dependency class has grown large enough that it will continue to keep leftists in power for perpetuity. And THAT will be another step toward civil war.
Poll the audiences after watching 2016!! Those sitting on the fence aren’t sitting on the fence any more.
Serious question: Why of all newspapers does the Wall Street Journal affiliate with this joke of a poll?
The editorial page of the WSJ is right of center. The news media wing is the typical far Left product of “journalism” schools.
Romney is running a very poor campaign. These polls are correct and very disheartening. Pat Caddell said that Romney’s campaign the worst ever campaign he’s seen. Romney needs to fire his campaign manager.
It's amazing to me anyone would vote for Obama again except for the fact they wanna give the first black Prez another chance.
You know in our Oprah like mushy country this mentality cannot be ruled out.
Well, I’m going to agree with that.
I’d like to believe that the polls are being weighted in favor of Obama. It’s possible that they are, but it is also possible that they are not.
The safe assumption to make is that they are accurate, and then proceed as if they are indeed accurate with regard to Romney’s campaign.
We have a man who is so dangerous to world stability as president right now.
I am literally walking around fearful everyday of what is about to happen.
Am I going to wake up tomorrow and see mushroom clouds?
Am I going to wake up tomorrow and see Russian warships in the Gulf of Mexico firing upon us? Maybe.
Now you may think, that’s preposterous! If it happened, what the hell is this little, pissant president going to do about it besides run and hide?
As far as I am concerned, after what has happened in the past few days, President Obama and his entire administration need to be impeached, tried and sent to prison.
As far as Mr. Romney goes, I have only this to say. Mr. Romnery, the entire world is now at stake. The fate of mankind is on your shoulders, sir. Fight as you have never fought before and as you never thought you would have to.
