As hopeful as this sounds I fear that it might be a bit premature.

I watched this guy on Fox today. It sounds like they maybe have a small organization. The Fox host asked about another state and he said they wouldn’t be polling there for a couple more weeks. I think it is way too early to call VA or FL for either side. Lots of things (good and bad) can happen between now and the election.

NC and Florida I agree with, but VA..that's really surprising.

This is all about credibility after the election. Ohio will be the key, and whoever can can Ohio closest has props. They're gonna allocate all their resources to polling Ohio. Smart move, IMHO..

Remember, Obama only needs Florida and Ohio to win. This is no time to call it a day and pack it up in Florida.

If true this is absolutely shocking! Devastating for the obama campaign.

Believe me, we are NOT getting complacent here in FL..The GOP is organized,and working very hard. We have lots of volunteers, enthusiasm, and a strong ground game. GOTV will be very successful. But we will win. Compared to 2008, there is a considerable lack of enthusiasm for Obama..You can see it in the lack of signs, bumper stickers..The more we GOTV, the better the chance we have of picking up the Senate seat. That’s the one I’m working for..

Agree.

Way too early to call. I just like the Mitt-mentum!

Lot of voters don’t want to back the loser. If Obama gets tagged with the big “L” he will lose a lot of soft support or they won’t turn out at all.

I worked the phone banks here in Central Virginia last evening and was startled by the turn of events. I had worked them several times earlier in the season but this was the first time since the debates. ID myself as a Vet calling on behalf of Republican Party and ask, “Can Romney and Ryan count on your vote this November?” Much larger number of yes’s and much greater level of enthusiam in their response. Was a pleasant experience compared to earlier times.

We need to use this as psy-ops, though.

Hey, Florida’s 29 electoral votes are off the table for 0bama - no use contributing money to his campaign.

Big Bird was bait. Mitt knew Obama wants to play small ball so he opened that door on purpose.

You're probably right, though I find that attitude sickening.

It's not a bet on who you think will win; it's a vote on who you WANT to win.

I backed the Braves and Rangers to win in the playoffs, that doesn't mean I would bet money on it, but that's who I wanted to win.

Now that baseball is done for the year, I'm not ashamed of rooting for them.

“Remember, Obama only needs Florida and Ohio to win. This is no time to call it a day and pack it up in Florida.”

It’s a sad day when by 8:00pm on the east coast, and the news starts coming in, Obama already has 255 votes before they even get started.

This is going to be 2004 all over again. Ohio will be green until 5am and then the lawyers will take over once some ballot boxes for Cayouga county go missing.

I don’t trust these frauds. I think its mis direction.
They did the Brown vs Coakley polls (Ma.) a couple of years ago and were way off in Coakleys favor.

I hate the huge attention given to the horse race rather than to issue presentations/reviews.

These polling outfits are not to be believed. Four weeks from election day and this outfit is calling states already(probably to put pubbies to sleep). Election day can
come soon enough to stop the imposter from ripping us off.

Kind of a big deal, as Suffolk works with one of the tv stations here in Miami (seven, I think), to do “exclusive” polls.
