Wall St. J ^ | September 14, 2012 | NEIL KING JR. And DANNY YADRON

Posted on 09/14/2012 6:04:49 PM PDT by Steelfish

BY NEIL KING JR.

With few voters still on the fence, President Barack Obama holds leads over Mitt Romney in new polls of Ohio, Florida and Virginia, three of the states likely to determine who wins the White House in November.

Mr. Obama has fought Mr. Romney to a draw on the question of which candidate is best equipped to grapple with the economy, the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist Poll surveys suggest. Mr. Romney's campaign is built largely on an argument that he can best reinvigorate the economy.

Among likely voters, Mr. Obama leads Mr. Romney by seven percentage points in Ohio and ...

New polls when? Because if this is data from before the Middle East erupted in flames, it is useless information.

Here are the oversamples

OH +10 D - However if you look at the internals Romney should win in a blowout

VA +5 D

FL +2 D - Debunked by Ras, previous link

Rush said today that F Chuck Todd expressed doubt on his poll.

No he doesn’t. It is pure make believe

Anyone, other then the NBC pollster, think 0bama is going to double his turn out number in 2012 in these states?

I do wonder if Obama is going to manufacture an incredulous turnout, making people wonder if it was even mathematically possible.

A part of me expects to see many precincts across the nation with greater than 100% turnout, or at least numbers not represented by bodies at the polls.

Of course I hope Romney wins, but I fear it may end up a stuttering contest. We need Newt as surrogate debater. Or let Ryan debate obama and Romney debate biden.

Romney has been doing practice debates, at least since he got the nomination. Obama has been fundraising, attending parties, going on talk shows, probably a few rounds of golf.

It’s likely he trusts his self-perceived god given talent for rhetoric to pull him through.

It's not down to 3 states.

I predict Romney will steal some of the states regarded as "safe" for Obama.

“Democrat nominee leading in key states according to latest polls” has been a standing headline every September in a Presidential election year since 1980.

“The debates will sink him.”

Obama will suddenly be “too busy being Presidential and dealing with the horrible mess in the Middle East” to take time away for such petty activities as debating Romney.

Wanna bet?

Maybe if Gingrich had been our nominee, but not with Romney at the helm. Romney will continue to show Obama respect that he doesn't deserve, and he will allow himself to be diminished by the biased liberals moderating the debates.

Good point. Romney is a doer. He is a man of accomplishment in everything he has ever done. He over accomplishes. he made a quarter billion in personal income and gave away at least that much in service and in charity. He over achieved with a double major in Law and MBA programs at Harvard and was the TOP of his class at BYU.

Obumbler damn near flunked out of Occidental and had a communist shoehorn transfer him to Columbia and again into Harvard Law where not one article was written by him and not one grade has been released. He is a disbarred lawyer who surrendered his law license and taught part time till he hacked his way into politics. He has never been known as a hard worker. I bet he has done NO debate prep.

Obama may lose, Obama may win.

In this life, it makes no difference. If we are terrorized by islam we will fight, if the economy collapses, we will alternately starve and fight.

And God will not judge obama’s treason or competence, those things are of man. But He will judge.

He was also man enough to have five boys. O’Bumbler couldn't manage more than two homely girls, and he probably had to think of Reggie Love while conceiving them, God knows Moochelle could pass for a line backer!

No OFFENSE TO ANYBODIES DAUGHTER. Except for O’Bumblers of course!

You’re so wrong. Romney is going to the debates ready to battle. You can freak over faulty polls, but how come the libs are not talking about already losing Indiana and north Carolina back to the GOP? And a few other states ready to topple too like Wisconsin and Colorado? Obama is toast that’s why the media is in 1984 mode trying to convince us that fiction is reality

Obama will have a wire in his ear with someone telling him what to say. You gotta know he will already know what he will be asked——or he will tell them what they MAY ask.
