Remember CNN declared the Scott recall was too CLOSE TO Call according to their POlls !!!!

The race was over ten minutes after the polls closed with a Scott blow out.

Who are they trying to fool anymore !

You know, once Obama loses — here’s a suggestion: Go to Hollywood. Seriously. I think he could get a job in Hollywood as an actor — that would be a good thing for him to do — he could hang out with the Hollyweird crowd, and receive adoration forever ....just as long as he stays far, far away from any sort of political position, we’d all be good.

Seriously. I think he’d be really good at it.

It’s about 4% too heavy Ds over Rs/Is. Ought to be about 34-34-32 or something close to that.

Depressing. For any realistic chance of beating His Majesty, Romney needs to win Ohio.

Obama has led in all "credible public polling and internal surveys on both sides of the 2012 race."

In other words, any polls showing Romney ahead are not credible.

Too many gun-totting Christians in the good state of Ohio for the Kenyan to win. Ohio will just be another state that Romney carries in the blowout that’s coming in three weeks.

Yes, as a matter of fact, a number of pollsters, including CNN and PPP were not even within the margin of error at the very limit on that one (+7). There’s something wrong with their methodology. FNC is just as bad, and so is WSJ/NBC. Not just this election, but always.

“The CNN survey is the first widely trusted poll”

I literally laughed out loud at that one!! Remember how the Chinese Arnold from Happy Days used to laugh: “Bahahahahahaha, you a funny joker!”

Anyone just see the Suffolk pollster on O’Reilly? He said they won’t be doing anymore polling in Florida, Virginia or North Carolina because they’re going to Romney. Hat tip News Ninja:

The president of Suffolk University Political Research Center tonight told Bill O’Reilly on The Factor that the company will not be taking any further polls in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. David Paleologos, Suffolk University Political Research Center Director, told Bill these states are clearly going to Romney.

“In places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red. We’re not polling any of those states again. We’re focusing on the remaining states.”

Wow, if that is true then Romney CAN win without Ohio.

He’ll need to pickup some other States that McCain lost but it will be much easier with those three in his pocket.

Last week they had Obama up by 3 in Fla and the week before up by 2 in Va.

Yup.
3 other polls have Romney up or within 1.
Ras, ARG, WeAskAmerica.
Gravis poll had Romney up as well.
ARG had a Romney lead with a sample that was D +9!

One consistent factor in the other polls was the large Romney lead among independents. Here Obama leads, its as if some of the Dems were identified as indies.

The pattern is that they have to throw in this bogus poll so there is no “ROMNEY LEADS” meme. That would be death for Obama and the media both.

Just imagine if Obama’s supporters found out that there is no reason to vote for the worst President in our lifetimes.

Before, it was frustrating that Romney was losing in a close race, but polls showed him ‘trailing widely’. Now Romney is leading and we will get polls that will still have a skew and show it even. Average out the polls and treat that as the minimum that Romney will get...

For ohio its now a dead-heat pollwise.

"Even after the fallout from last week's presidential debate, Barack Obama retains a 4-point lead in the state of Ohio — and pulls a majority of the vote in a poll released this afternoon by CNN.

Obama leads Romney in the state, 51 percent to 47 percent."

Well, good. Democrat voters can now relax, seeing how Obama's got it in the bag. No sense in busting their humps to get out the vote. Not to worry. Someone else will 'build that'.

Just now on Hannity, they said that Romney had started increasing his ad buys.

They also said, and I agree with it, that Romney wiped out the benefit of Obama’s pre-debate ad avalanche.

Will Romney do as well and Obama as poorly in the next debate? Someone on one of the Fox shows said today that the next debate will be town hall format (maybe it was O’Reilly) where they get audience questions like “what’s your favorite color and why?”

I doubt the audience questions will be that bad, but sometimes they’re real puffballs, and sometimes they are clear attempts at “gotcha”. I also believe the audience is a good proportion of plants from the liberal networks.

So, will Obama get away with walking around, smiling, joking, and giving flighty answers? He will if the format doesn’t permit Romney to respond to Obama in any substantive way.

Gov Chris Christie was in Ohio today, campaigning in the Mahoning County, "steel valley" area, a normally drop dead democrat region of the state. He said the crowds were enormous, even outside the behemoth GM (union infested) Lordstown plant.

I think CNN is blowing smoke.

I was stunned, they were not in yards but on the roadside.

Stunned? So that means one person drove along the road while a partner hopped in and out of the car planting signs along the way. No big mystery there.

I am not a believer in polls of any kind, “science” is missing

Who in the heck thinks CNN is credible? Wolf Blitzer has as much as said that he will ask all the questions that dems want asked, even if Obama does not ask, in the debate he moderates

On the other hand, Obama also won’t be able to “get tough” with Romney without appearing to be a jerk.

Keep in mind Obama always pushes for podium debates....obviously he must prefer them. I think Romney could do very well at a town hall debate.

In the next debate, I think anything but a clear Romney loss is a win for Romney.

A tie is a win for Romney.

A clear win for Romney, and aside from having to endure another week of ad hominem attacks from the media/democrats, he has a fairly clear path to victory.

If that happens, my bet would be that Obama will launch some kind of attack on Libya (drone, missile, etc.) to show he’s a tough guy, hoping to wag the dog.

If you standing at the front of some grocery store...as a Democrat...and some idiot walked up to do a poll, and they ask you if you are a Republican or Democrat....it wouldn’t take much to grin and say the opposite of what you are. That’s why polls are worthless. Back in February, when they called me here in Virginia to ask if I was supporting Romney or Ron Paul, I answered Ron Paul. There’s no reason to take any of this polling business serious...we all joke about now.

BS poll.

No trust.

Their wording would be skewed.

Their polling workers would be skewed and all registered dems wanting their results.

Dismissed.

They also have Obama ahead among those over 50 years old. Probably the only state he’s winning that demo.

CNN must have gone out of its way to show Obama leading, because Rasmussen has Romney leading in OH, AND ARG poll has Romney up with a +9 D sampling.

The actual poll. There are no internals offered, yours are meaningless.

And the fact that there are no internals at all, tell me they oversampled Democrats by 20 points or more.
