Watch hough, the now documented doctored UE numbers will have ass clowns like ScottyR swinging things back to Obama in the propaganda polls. Tough sledding ahead guys, real tough, darkest before dawn type stuff. Be prepared for it to look bleak, Obama looking like he regained his Mo’ and then some. Bambi may have been mailing it in but the 1000’s of parasites, plutocrats , socialists and Occupy types are not going down easy.

A Republican challenger leading a Democrat incumbent in the polls a month before the election point = landslide.

If we fight this all the way to the finish line, we’ll finish at 55%+

Rasmussen is not a clown. He was the most accurate pollster the last few years. He always comes across as professional and fair. He is very successful and good at his business.

Easy for you on your keyboard to hurl baseless bile at someone isn’t it? Make you feel better about yourself?

I believe it, and have been saying so for several months. In 2008, enthusiasm for Obama was electric..you could sense it..it was so dispiriting to work for McCain especially so since they ran an awful campaign in Florida..This time...the GOP here is energized...I'm in Tampa ( Hillsborough) one of the key counties in the whole country, and the GOP troops on the ground are working like mad, and this time it's the Dems who have no get up and go....

We will win the senate seat as well...

If America buys into this Potemkin Village campaign and re-elects Obama then its no longer a country worth saving anyway.

I;m here and I have not seen one , not one obama yard sign, seen about 3 or 4 bumper stickers in a week to which I see about that more for Romey and Ryan.

Granted I’m in north east FL which is more conservative than the south part cess pit of the state but even out today I saw a massive banner saying Romney on a big building, it had to be over 60 foot, another sign about 30 foot hanging from a crane saying.
We built this, we fixed this you broke it obama and you’re fired

Actually the only people I ever see with an obama sticker is either the old woman driving a Prius or a black person, not even young kids have his stickers

I agree with you. If Obumer wins, this nation will cease to exist as a free republic. I believe it will become socialists within two years and the changes that the dims would make in his four years could never be recovered. Even in the future, if a republican won and they controlled both houses, they could not repair the damages made. Once Obamacare gets going full bore, it will never be stopped. We will be stuck with it and the culling of the older people would have begun.

Already many of the new Obamacare Medicare rules are in place. One of the new rules is, under Medicare, IF a person is put in the hospital and then released, they CANNOT BE READMITTED FOR ANY REASON FOR 30 DAYS!!! This has already happened to our church secretary's mother. He broke her knee, was in the hospital for a few days and sent home. At home, she fell (she is over 80) and broke a hip. They treated her at the emergency room and SENT HOME. The doctors said they could not readmit her under Medicare. They have to give her pain drugs for the next month, and only after 30 days can she be readmitted and then have the broke hip fixed. Welcome to Obamacare Medicare people.

there is a massive sign on a building in Jacksonville just off 202 and nearly at the on ramp of now called 295, used to be called 9.

It is on the grub Ellis reality Phoenix building.

Then if you go south down 9 and just before you get off at US-1 on the north bound side there is the sign saying we built this, we fixed it, you broke it and you're fired.

I did see one black woman with a God bless America plate , a cross on her rear view mirror and then an obama sticker, I guess the idiot did not know about her messiahs policy's.

The best ones though is when I see a pick up truck or a SUV with an obama sticker on.
The idiots driving those have not understood the green energy policy or the hatred of V8 engines LOL and they wonder why they are classed as dumb and stupid.

Thankfully I don;t see many stickers so those I do see do stick out around here.
Our county goes nearly 70% republican on election night and even if you combine Dems and non party they still don’;t out number republicans on this county and one of the reasons why I moved to St Augustine, St Johns county

Saw that one today for the first time.

It should only get better. Phony job numbers, one of the smartest in Ryan vs the one of the dumbest in Biden and a Foreign Policy debate where Obama needs to explain what happened in Libya. Maybe things are finally coming together.

Considering the Bradley Effect, Romney’s lead is likely bigger.

Scott Rasmussen said the full effect of the debate won’t be seen until Sunday so it should get even better. Woo hoo!

my thinking on this is: that a numbers report doesn’t effect peoples voting the a powerful debate performance does...

people are a bit immune to all the news on the numbers, at least what my gut tells me....

seeing a live breathing guy whip down the Prez, that left an impression in peoples minds that will be very hard to shake off.

I drove the back roads from St. Augustine across the state to Tampa on monday. I saw at least 50 R&R signs including a huge one on I-75. Only saw 1 Team Kenya sign and that was in front of a house in the black area of Palatka.

maybe these polls have been including the vter fraud which will happen on even a bigger scale than last time.

I’ve just got back from feeding my horse etc which is down on 207, I live just north of St Johns county airport.

It’s about a 25 min drive and I never saw one jug eared sticker but my kids and I counted 11, not including when I got on I 95 for 5 miles

I think I know the same road you took, 207 and then head through Ocala through the back roads and on to Tampa

Here’s a big surprise. O has been a fixture at 47% for the past 3 years because the media can’t bring themselves to report that he’s less popular than Jimmuh Karter circa 1980.

In 2008, the cars at my work had more O bumper stickers than you could shake a stick at. Finding one in the parking lot now is harder than finding Lindsay Lohan sober on a Friday night.

that is not the rule, the rule is the hospital is fined for readmits. I would call the State Ombudsmen, not treating a broken hip is considered abuse and failure to treat. No matter what the Feds say, the states oversight agency’s are going to look at it very differently

They treated her and SENT HER HOME. THAT IS THE EXCUSE the doctor told them. Whether you say it is true or not, THAT is what the doctor told our secretary and that is what is going on. They treated her AND SENT HER HOME. Period.
