Gov. Romney leads by 1% with DRI of 42/33/25.

You have got to be shi**ing me. D+9??? Really? Really? They had to skew that to show it even close.

Now I’m optimistic about FL and OH, I wish more data would come out from VA. With the three of them, it’s any other state and bye bye Zero!

Dear LS,

I know you've been following early returns for Ohio closely. Comparing to 2008, and looking at current numbers for early ballots, does D+9 sound remotely reasonable in Ohio? Ds at 42%?

Thanks,

20 point lead among Independents.

Ready the party balloons!

Unless this is an outlier or things change dramatically in the next 30 days when the desperate dems go "Full Mormon" this thing's over.

Romney’s internals must be looking damn good. Did anybody catch his foreign policy speech yesterday in Virginia? He sounded and acted like he was the president already. Winning presidential candidates tend to do that - they get the swagger and confidence. What a difference from candidate McCain of four years ago!

Dear Uncle Miltie,

“20 point lead among Independents.”

I wonder whether the ratio of D/R/I isn't a little low on the I’s, to minimize the effect of that number.

If the D/R/I ratio were 37/33/30 (still leaving a Democrat advantage of +4), by itself, that would put Gov. Romney at 50%, and the Kenyan anti-Christ at 45%.

Which would be a lead outside the margin of error.

There is still a lot of time left in this election. Romney/Ryan just can’t let up, and neither can we.

These polls make me feel good, but I don’t want to get too confident. Romney needs to stay on the offensive and squash Obama in the next 2 debates. Same with Ryan on Thursday, which I’m confident about.

Heard a DBM commentator recently talk about how much the party is depending on BiteMe's performance Thursday. No, they're not kidding!

D+9 is ridiculous for OH. If you’re looking at 08, you might claim it was +3 to +5. But 2010 you’d probably be closer to +2 R.

This is gonna be a blowout if these Indy numbers hold up. This is huge. 20 points! Getouttahere!

We're seeing huge margins for Governor Romney among independents is all the polling. There's no way he's up like this with indies in a close race. No way!

The Tectonic plates of politics are shifting

Creating a Giant Tsunami that will sweep Obama and his minions into the dustbin of history.

I think the American people have finally got it:

Romney wants to kill Big Bird

Obama wants to kill them all.

I saw him in Newport News yesterday afternoon...in the pouring rain. The guy is very impressive. It was my first chance to see him up close and personal, even shared a few words with him, and I came away very impressed.

YES!!

Is it true that Romney has to win Ohio or he loses? I have heard that bandied about at times. Just wondering.

Dear pgkdan,

I agree with you. You don't win a 20-point margin with indies and not win the election convincingly.

Hot diggity! I thought Romney killed Obama in the debate, but this looks like absolute overkill if it’s true.

I never would have believed that Romney could be up by this much during the primary.

My concern with these new poll numbers is Dems are using it to spread the word that today is the last day to register to vote. It’s been all over Chicago radio the past few days. I had heard registration was down 225,000 in Chicago over 2008. Are they using it this way anywhere else?

It’s not mathematically impossible to win without Ohio, but it is a serious deficit that would have to be made up elsewhere.

Last time Ohio was won by the loser was when Nixon won the state in 1960.

I follow this girl on facebook(Had no idea at the time I added her what a far left kook she is) she is on permanent disability(She says she has lupus) but every single day she is volunteering at Obama’s campaign office in Mason, Ohio(So I guess she isn’t that disabled after all if she can constantly go out and campaign for him) but any who, even now she is posting how she needs everyone to go out and vote for Obama, how urgent it is..and yesterday she posted a photo of the campaign office and NO ONE was there..not a single person

Not to put too fine a point on it but Romney only said he wants to take Big Bird off govt welfare ... not kill him. BB will do fine on its own. Merchandise sells $50 million
per year.

Virtually, yes. Technically no.

I mean without OH, he'd need to flip a state "lefter" than Ohio, like PA, MI, or WI, in most scenarios.
