Scott Rasmussen rejects Chuck Todd’s ‘inaccurate’ interpretation of Fla. poll
DC ^

Posted on 09/14/2012 4:07:12 PM PDT by Perdogg

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday, NBC White House correspondent and MSNBC “The Daily Rundown” host Chuck Todd more-or-less predicted that President Barack Obama would win Florida in November, citing the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that gives Obama a five-point edge over Republican candidate Mitt Romney in that state.

Of course because based on current party registrations in the states mentioned no rational sane person would take the NBC poll seriously

Does NBC pollsters REALLY think Obama is going to do better in OH and VA then he did in 2008?

If they do, they are incompetent, if they don’t they are liars.

Ras was number one in accuracy in 2008, NBC was number 13. I think it pretty clear which is the genius and which is the clown poll.

anyone who lives in florida (like myself) will tell you that Obama will lose primarily from the large block of the 40-99 vote,,,ok, lets just call them senior citizens! they live in massive communities,like “The Villages” and Century Village. These mass communities are all over the state and THEY VOTE!

It ain’t over until it’s over.

We haven’t even had a debate yet, for cat’s sake. As we get within a month or less of the election, people will at last wake up and pay attention to the coming events.

Sure, there are signs and portents galore, but not everybody is equally attuned to the nuances and penumbrations of things to come.

Then we will start to see something like accuracy in polling numbers. But they can still call it wrong, as “President” Dewey could have attested in 1948.

I betcha if you went back to study that '48 election, you would discover Democrat voter fraud that gave Truman the "victory."

I betcha Dewey really did defeat Truman.

A better analogy would be the 1980 reelection of Jimmy Carter.

I live in FL and everyone I know HATES Obama.

My doctor just told me the other day if they institute Obamacare he is going off the grid, total cash. No insurance. Another told me he is retiring.

However, I do live in rural FL. They are different over on the east coast, for some weird reason after they flee NYC they want to bring it down here. It’s infuriating.

IMHO, the debates will decide it. Because people seem too stupid to see past the smokescreen the media is throwing up to protect their boy.

They do this every election. Just think 2010 and the Scott Walker recall. Things have only gotten worse, we will finish what we started in 2010.

I have noticed in the last year that Chuck U Todd's straight down to the far head hair style is not able to cover his bald faced lies.

I hope they monitor absentee ballots. So many non-residents who own property there are registered in both states, their home state and FL.

It’s not going to pay us to turn a blind eye to the fraud. I think that’s why the pollsters overpoll Dems, they factor in fraud even if it’s unintentional. If Dems keep outperforming the sampling, the only logical thing to do is oversample Dems even if they don’t know why.

No. South Florida is a hotbed of stupidity especially amongst the seniors down there. Not the same as the folks at the Villages what so ever. Unless the Jewish vote is substantially turning to Romney,the southern part of the state is traditionally Democrate. It takes the northern part to compensate for them. The I-4 corridor at one time was conservative, no longer can count on that due to the new neighborhoods where most folks are blue collar working at the Theme Parks or Hotels and resturants.
We Conservatives are working overtime to convince folks in Polk County(between Tampa and Orlando)because we truly believe I-4 will make the difference.
This state is very diverse and nothing is a given.
