That is because he is using a D+5 sample now.
From the article:
“Post-debate polling shows that Romney and the president are within two points of each other in Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Iowa and Colorado. All remain Toss-Ups in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. New data from Nevada will be released at noon Eastern today.”
I think if I were a campaign professional on the obamugabe campaign, I’d feel sort of sick right now. Especially after only two weeks ago (not to mention three and four weeks ago...), the media had told me it was “over over over”.
To quote Rocky Balboa, “it ain’t over til it’s over.”
Republicans always have bad weekends. Just wait until Thursday or Friday to get a good sense of the polls.
The killer number....only 41% certain to vote for Obama, that makes his run to 50% virtually impossible...the incumbent underwater at 41%
We will every single one of the close ones on turnout. There is no way in hell that the other side is going to out crawl us to the polls this election. No way in hell! We will be outside the MOC (margin of cheating) too.
One of the nice things about having a race this close is that the communist DemocRATS are going to have to be extremely blatant with their voter fraud. Most of it will become very obvious.
So, what’s with the 4%? When are they going to decide and historically, for whom do most of them break to?
Further down in report, and notwithstanding the weekend polling bias against conservatives: "A presidents job approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the presidents job approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Fifty percent (50%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends)."
If half of voters disapprove of the job Zero is doing, will they vote for him? I think he's in a lot more trouble than the 'rats ever expected.
The best part is that we win Ohio by 20,000 votes and Obama wins Kalifornia by 6.5 million.... Those even percentages are wasted on CA, NY, MA, etc. Fly over country will be a Romney blowout.
Obama has not been able to close the deal.
The day before the Election expect to see Obama over Romney 55% to 45%, with a 30% margin of error of course...
It is 48-46 without leaders. Romney is doing better. And a big Romney night rolled off (Friday night, where R went from 2 down to 2 ahead), so last night must have been good for him as well.
