Polls Show Obama Is Widening His Lead in Ohio and Florida (NYT predicts record Democrat turnout!)
NY Times ^ | 9/26/12 | JIM RUTENBERG and JEFF ZELENY

Posted on 09/26/2012 7:04:39 AM PDT by jimbo123

For weeks, Republicans in Ohio have been watching with worry that the state’s vital 18 electoral votes were trending away from Mitt Romney. The anxiety has been similar in Florida, where Republicans are concerned that President Obama is gaining the upper hand in the fight for the state’s 29 electoral votes.

Those fears are affirmed in the findings of the latest Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls of likely voters in both states, which show that Mr. Obama has widened his lead over Mr. Romney and is outperforming him on nearly every major campaign issue, even though about half said they were disappointed in Mr. Obama’s presidency.

Fraudulent turnouts? Do you mean that the numbers will be fraudulent, or the turnout will be fraudulent voters?

I’m here and have seen about two stickers for their messiah a week and yet I see yard signs and stickers every day .

I go to Jacksonville, I live in St Johnsc ounty, I go to Flagler county 4 times a week and then off to Clay and Putnam and no way is he winning but we all know why they are doing these extra numbers for their messiah , yes because of the masive voter fraud which will happen and just like this.

Worth reading.

they are asking much more Dems and adding numbers because they know there will be massive voter fraud.

How can they account for their massive win in November if they had the real numbers in their polls, they have to account for their massive voter fraud.

Exactly. If so, after the election's over, we need to draw closer to our God and our families, and hunker down in preparation for the tribulation that follows. I do truly believe America is finished as the great land we once knew, if Obama wins.

In the meantime... pray for miracles.. many of them.

As do I. GOPers and conservatives, even in conquered states like CA, NY, PA, MI and the Northeast, still need to make their presence known. Even if we have to go down in defeat, let's at least make it not because of lack of effort. Make a statement that Obama doesn't own all of us.

From here in Wisconsin regarding Scott Walker's Recall election on June 5, we were told flat out that the Dems had “hundreds” of lawyers out in our state READY to get busy for any flawed or corrupt voting. They disappeared into the woodwork when Scott Walker WON that recall by 7 points, MUCH higher than the first time he was elected.

Threaten us all you want, Dems - we're taking you down. Talk to anyone - strangers anywhere - they are LIVID about what this clown is doing to our great country.

You're absolutely right. If it comes it will be the triumph that the left has fought for generations. And the majority who brought it about will be to blame; along with, of course, the deceivers who led them astray.

If you saw Ralph Reid on Greta’s show Monday night, he stated there were 17.1 million Evangelical Christians that either didn’t register to vote in 2008 or didn’t show up to the polls.

17.1 million potential votes for the GOP combined with lower turnout from Obamazombies it is going to be a blowout.

Northwest FL panhandle is very conservative, just like Jax. I used to live there. My sister still does, and my wife’s relatives live in Hilliard. Don’t forget that Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are all heavily Democrat, as well as Orange-Orlando, St. Pete-Tampa areas. The EBT crowd will vote for more goodies from Obama’s Stash...........

Do not fret because these are not the real numbers, not even close, in fact these numbers of the extreme oversampling of democrats run totally against the reality on the ground...

Please understand that after Obama failed with everything he tried against Romney, he and his media are now left with their final strategy of "demoralizing the Republican/Conservative base" by unleashing many very biased polls showing Obama in the lead... This one will also fail and fail badly...

Please vote for Romney and ask the people you know to vote for Romney...

north east FL is republican too, my county St Johns is nearly 70% republican and trust me we have many good ole boys which don’t even vote the idiots.

There is no way that he is winning FL but of course with all this fake biasd polling then it will account for all the voter fraud which will be done in the south east part of this state.

Those 3 counties in the south east should just leave the state because it brings up fraud, many ignorant voters, illegals etc.

I wish all conservatives would move out of those states, NY, MA, CA, VT, ME, RI, CT,PA,, MI and move ot swing states like FL, NC, VA, CO, NM,AZ,.

Imagine millions of people who are conservative moving to those states thus the swing states become solid republican, gain more electoral votes, get more tax money, have the liberal states lose money, lose electoral numbers, etc.

I know of 5 other families now which moved out of MA, CA and moved to FL because they were fed up of the liberal high tax, homo agenda

Rats go into assisted living facilities and “help” the patients “fill out” their ballots. Another favorite of RATs is to vote everywhere they have a residence as in 2nd and 3rd homes. Of course, they’re out digging up the dead as well. And delaying ballots being sent to the troops is an all-time favorite.

Any other RAT voter fraud scenarios you would like to share?

On a somewhat related topic, I’ve been thinking about the projections that the MSM will make on election night. I wonder if they could project phony Obama leads and/or victories early in the evening to discourage west coast Romney voters into not bothering to vote. Or maybe I’m just paranoid.

Sounds as if you see what’s coming — as do I.

This doesn’t mean it’s time to give up the fight. I’ll vote “against Obama” in November, as I know that you will, too. Ain’t no way I’m not goin’ to the polls to have my say this November!

But if he wins again, conservatives must face hard truths about their personal futures and the future of the country as well.

If the Republican party can’t beat a socialist/marxist like Obama, if they can’t defeat someone as extreme as him with a candidate as “smooth” as Mitt Romney, how the heck are they going to win again?

America is “changin’ away on us”, and it’s not for the better. That as destructive and shady an individual as Obama could win the presidency, and then go on to win it AGAIN says more about what a growing plurality of our population wants, as much as it says about Obama himself.

A growing cohort of the population no longer believes in nor wants the traditional Scots-Irish ideal of self-sufficiency and freedom — the republic created for us by The Founders. Rather, they’re quite comfortable to let government be “their new Massa”, and take what it hands out to them, “free of charge”. Except, the handouts come with a hidden price...

Couple this with the inevitable demographic changes that are coming (amnesty for the illegals will certainly be part of Obama’s second term), and within twenty years, conservatives will no longer be able to “raise a national voice” loudly enough to remain an influential force in the government any longer.

What’s the alternative?
How about something like the Amish and Mennonites do? That is to say, conservatives will have to take up their beds and re-congregate into geographical areas (such as certain states) where they will remain the dominant group (both philosophically and ethnically). They’ll have to migrate to such locations which the left will ignore the longest in their quest for power. Conservatives will have to create communities (actually those communities already exist) which will have a decent chance of surviving the inevitable “crashes to come”, as the cities and surrounding areas collapse.

Think of Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451” for a moment. In the novel, the renegade “fireman”, hunted by the authorities in the city, flees to a far-off area where the government doesn’t go and where freedom is still cherished and (like the books in the novel) “remembered”.

How ironic that within fifty years, the country changed so much that “the old ways” are now regarded as dangerous, and those that hold them dear have become “the new renegades”....

You’re NOT paranoid. Never forget the election when Gore was declared the winner in Florida at 7:00 eastern time by the commie news shows. That, in turn, discouraged the Repubs in the Florida panhandle (who are in a later time zone) from voting.
