Rasmussen Swing State Daily: R: 49% O:47%: HUGE SHIFT!

In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

This is the first time Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey since September 19. Until today, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with most of the responses now coming since Romney’s debate win last Wednesday night.

Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now “certain” they will vote for Romney and will not change their minds. Forty percent (40%) are certain they will vote for the president.

In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin.

I saw one stat (I think in Pew) that said that 46% of Romney voters were set. Wow. That’s almost nearing the point of no return, and very close to blowout territory even if you assume a 50/50 split among the famous “undecideds.”

I am - cautiously - starting to "believe", FRiend... :-)

Thanks for all the great work you've been doing in Ohio, by the way.

Latest Pew shows Romney up 49 - 45...

The reality that is going on on the ground is showing up in the polling... And its only going to get worse for Obama.

What did Obama take out of the debates? He got his teleprompter back, and then promptly decided he wanted to use Big Bird as a Human Shield.... Sure it played to his core, but it makes him look even more pathetic to the rest of the electorate.

I have said it for a long long long time, Obama has an absolute MAX of 42-43% of the popular vote on election day... That’s it. Honestly, it is not beyond the realm of possiblity that on election day he could not hit 40%.

The idea this is a tight race was NONSENSE from day one.

You can’t be the most FAILED ADMINISTRATION IN THE MODERN ERA and think you are going to have a tight race, the whole idea this was a close one was propoganda and nonsense.

What happened? Left spent 200 Million dollard trying to paint Romney as an extremists and scary, and that kept the polls (with some additional manipulation close) and when Romney finally got a little time unfiltered with theAmerican People they saw he wasn’t what the press and the left portrayed him as, and neither is the president. And low and behold, OBamas fake numbers COLLAPSE overnight.

Obama never had a prayer for re-election, the propoganda campaign tried its best to make you think it could happen, but it was not and is not possible.

FIGHT like its neck and neck, but don’t buy into the nonsense folks.

All those polls are out of date and contradicted by the latest ARG numbers. This will be a Romney landslide.

I wish he didn’t throw in leaners. If you aren’t decided at this late date, what are the chances you will vote anyway? I’m more interested in the certain numbers, which give R a 6 point lead.

The debate did what we needed it to do. It encouraged the right, it disheartened the left, and it introduced a competent decent-sounding guy to the middle that they can feel comfortable voting for.

When states like Michigan and Pennsylvania and described as swing states, you know the Dem candidate is in deep trouble.

Also all the Social program lies are working on some people. Smart people too. Obamas team is saturating the airwaves and Internet with lie after lie and I see no challenge to it. A lot of people don't understand how “local” an Internet ad is and how inexpensive it is to get the lie repeated ad nauseum.

I live in Montana so our electoral vote is tiny but Obama & Tester are hammering away here using the Internet.

According to Suffolk, Florida, NC, and Virginia are now firmly Romney states.

If the stars align with Romney getting 51 to Obamas 47 and 2 to the hangers on I will laugh my ass off.
