I don't know what to make of this. Up until about 4 days ago, Gallup had the race tied. There was a sudden shift to Obama on either Sat or Sun which showed up first in the approval number. I thought it was a one day good sample for Obama but that day rolled off the three day rolling approval tracker today and his approval number actually went up....?

1) Registered or Likely voters?

2) What’s the D/R/I sampling of this poll.

Without the above data, numbers are as good as useless.

This is a RV poll.

I know it is an RV poll. The concern I have is the sudden change from 46/46 to 50/44. The 50/44 number is a high water mark.

There is only one poll that counts. And it takes place in November. Just ask Jimmy Carter.

They are doctoring these polls, to make it seem that Obama is more popular than he really is.

And, they want to demoralize Republicans by claiming the Romney campaign is imploding.

goodness. EVERY POLL shows Romney losing, the one guy left his campaign for Wall Street and even NRO is saying Romney is shifting his strategy. Something tells me that R/R are down in their own polling. Doesn’t mean they’ll lose but lets get real here for a minute. It doesn’t look good at this point.

Keep in mind that Gallup ranked near the bottom (I think 17th) in accuracy in 2008.(Rasmussen was most accurate)

I’ve quit looking at polls, or at least let it bother me when I do. It’ll drive you crazy.

If you’re feeling depressed, the remedy is to go back and look at polling data from 1980, or 1988, or 2010. Polls are never goign to predict a substantial Republican victory. They’re just simply too biased against it

Accuracy as in they had Obama winning bigger than he did but they were still accurate in that Obama won. I don’t really care if they’re off a few points the fact is all these polls keep showing Obama ahead. And how exactly with the price of gas, and food, and the cost of debt, and the bad employment numbers along with the fact that NOBODY really likes his Obamacare plan does this bastard get 50 to 51 percent job approval. Romney is not running an effective campaign if this is the case. Is he afraid to be tough?

This is a disaster.

Really? Romney is getting killed. This is looking like 2008 all over again. The “establishment” puts up a lousy candidate and we are left on the outside. Down ballot races are being affected too. Face facts we are in trouble.

I think he’s having a self-created ‘bandwagon effect’ from the good poll reports in the media and it will collapse.

What proof do you have, other than bogus polls, that Romney is getting killed?

The day after the elections: "The nation is stunned. Every poll in the country showed the President up by anywhere from 5 to 15 points, and yet Romney wins by 8??? The case for Republican voter fraud couldn't be more obvious...disenfranchisement of Democrat voters at record levels..."

You can see it coming...an obvious set-up.

This is more absurd yet, this is the seven day moving average that had a one point difference yesterday or day before, That means basically Obama had to have about 61-39 day of polling, that is the biggest whopper of all the polling to date!

Anyone that will spend 4 million dollars to keep you from knowing anything about him is not above paying/threatening a mere polling agency to change the results!
