Obama had a good polling day yesterday, oddly.
Close the deal today Mr. Romney!
There is no doubt in my mind that since the lamestream pretty wells own the media that the headlines tomorrow will be no worse for Obama than “draw”. If there’s any way at all to paint it as a Romney loss, then they will.
Their favorite line in the past has always been, “expectations”. Romney will lose because “expectations require an out-and-out win from him.” Since he didn’t land a knockout, then he loses.
I’ll bet tomorrow’s articles are already written.

Statistical noise, tied race that will be decided by turnout and late deciders.

It just continues to amaze me that 49% of this nation is that stupid. Too believe that four more years of this scumbag is going to make America better. We are very very close to total collapse. And this 49% wants its. They beg for the “rich” to be torn down. What the stupids fail to see is that when the so called rich get flattened, the free money is cut totally off. America is going down folks. When Obama wins, it is over as a Free Republic.

The correct Presidential approval number is -12%
My fault. I looked at the cached page from yesterday
ADMIN/MODERATOR: Please correct my post title to say “-12%” instead of the “-15%”
Obama had a good polling day yesterday, oddly.
Well, only partly, since his Strongly Approve - Strongly Disapprove went from -12 to -15.
So my question is, is Ras using the same sample to ask about the president's approval rating as he is asking O vs Romney?
I find it very difficult to believe that the people who are strongly disapproving of 0 will not vote for Romney. That would in Ras samples give R a base of 40 - 43%. In comparison 0's base is only 26 - 30%. Sure, in the total approval stakes the difference is much smaller, and sometimes even to 0's advantage. However, even though likely voters are polled, how likely are the strong dis- and approvals to vote compared to those that are not as decidedly for or against?
Unless there is a large section of those who strongly oppose Obama who for one or other reason decide not to vote for ABO then the Democrats will have a big job GOTV to be able to counter Romney's lead.

Just a couple of anecdotal events that I thought I'd share. This has NEVER happened to me before and I've been politically active since 1968. I have yard signs for Romney, George Allen and Scott Rigell up in my yard. I was leaving my house last evening to hit the driving range and a car stopped at my house and the driver got out and asked where I got my signs. I told him and then offered a Romney sign to him. I always carry a few extra fro friends. As soon as I got back from the driving range my doorbell rang. It was someone from the neighborhood out walking their dog who wanted to know where they could get a Romney sign. I gave him one. He said he'd never been active before and usually didn't even vote but he was voting this year and this would be the first campaign sign he ever put up (the guy was about 30). Then...today on my way to work, stopped at a light a car pulls up next to me and the driver starts making gestures at me to get my attention. I ignored him until he got out and knocked on my passenger window...he wanted to know where I got my Romney bumper stickers!
Three times in two days I've been approached by strangers wanting Romney gear. I know it's just anecdotal and really doesn't mean anything but I'm amazed by it...and encouraged.

(You didn't build that. The private sector is doing fine. We tried our plan and it worked.)
scotty rasmussen admitted that he raised the dim to republican ratio because he has more dims answering his poll. Of course they are... we are voting against obama no matter what... the dims actually are voting for obama and are more motivated to waste their time answering his poll. THAT is what is wrong with the polling today.

It is not a dead heat if you cheat.

Do they poll the same people each time, or different people?
