Posted on 10/08/2012 6:49:20 AM PDT by nhwingut
In 2008, President Barack Obama won the independent vote over John McCain by a margin of eight points, 52-44. This morning, a new Battleground Poll has Mitt Romney massacring Obama among indies by a whopping 16 points, 51-35.
That's a 24-point swing among independents since 2008, a group that makes up anywhere from a quarter to a third of voters, and yet Battleground still has Obama in the lead 49-48 ?
But if I'm skeptical of those bottom-line numbers, our journalist overlords who have chosen to palace guard instead of question will declare me a "truther."
The Battleground Poll also shows an 13 point enthusiasm gap in Romney's favor. Only 73% of Obama's supporters are "extremely likely" to vote, compared to 86% of Romney's supporters.
But again, don't question Battleground's 49-48% outcome. In fact, don't question anything anymore -- or the media will question you and mock you as a "truther. " This includes questioning our government about the release of counter-intuitive unemployment statistics very helpful to the president just 30 days out from the election.
Though the media hasn't yet decided it's time for a Romney Comeback Narrative, and probably never will, even if he wins -- there's no question Romney is rebounding in every national and swing state poll.

Best poll in America.
This is a signifcant.
For anybody who thinks the GOP enthusiasm from 2010 mid-term elections has dissipated or waned, refer back to the Chick-Fil-A appreciation day a couple months back. Media pundits were shocked that so many conservatives would come out in support of a fast food chicken restaurant chain. They will be equally as shocked on November 6. It’s like the “Silent Majority” of 1980 all over again. We are biding our time and not making a whole lot of noise about it but we’re coming.
I think a whole lot of us are continuing to lie to pollsters, just for the entertainment value of all the horrified looks on pundit faces on Election Night.
The taste of Leftist tears is delicious.
Very encouraging, as good as these numbers are, they don't include the Romney bounce and the Obama thud!
Who’s doing the polling? Chavez Polling Group?.................
“.......We are biding our time and not making a whole lot of noise about it but were coming.”
Oh Yeah!!! I’ve been keeping a real tight hold, waiting to let my constant ‘simmer’ of fury boil over into action. You bet I’m coming..... and millions just like me.
Good post, Sam! Thanks!
This poll is D+8. LOL!
Romney is down 1 in a D+8 poll. Rasmussen has his party id right now at R+2.6.
So if true, it could be a 10 point turnout swing. Romney would win (based on this poll) by about 6 points 53-47.
I’m actually gonna miss having ol’ Keith Olbermann on MSNBC when they call this for Romney. His reaction would make the Budd Dwyer suicide video seem tidy by comparison.
Mathews committing suicide on air would be a ratings bonanza.
Pray for America
Whoever wins the Independent vote wins the election!
