Thanks.

The stupidity illustrated by this breakdown is breathtaking.

I deeply resent a lot of people who have the privilege to vote. Their intelligence does not merit it.

“supposedly 18% of self-identified CONSERVATIVES polled are saying they will vote for Obama. AHEM...does anyone here believe that to be an accurate reflection of reality????????”

It’s laughable on its face. Either (i) respondees are “messing” with the pollsters, (ii) some of the respondees are so cerebrally challenged that they do not know what “conservative” means, or (iii) the pollsters are cooking some of the numbers

I agree with your three choices to explain that result. And I take some comfort from the fact that even with that preposterous info, Romney still leads in this poll.

As an aside, this is the only pollster that ever called me (that reached me by the call, anyway). Back in either ‘00 or ‘04...one of times W was running, I was polled by this exact poll. I thought the caller did a professional job, but I can’t say what was done with the poll behind the scenes.

But as was pointed out, this poll has been one of the more accurate ones over time.

They haven’t helped by keeping it in the news cycle with a new excuse du jour, each more ridiculous than the next. Then we had “Big Bird! Nyaaah!” and “surprisingly” neither did Zero any good.

Now there are rumblings that changes will be made regarding campaign personnel...hehehe

Unsurprising fact: at least 2% of Democrats are flat-out liars.

“We’ll see how the next few weeks go, but I said it from the begining, and I say it now... BEST obama can hope for is 42-43% of the popular vote, and its a very real possibility he won’t even see 40%.”

Well, I feel pretty good about where we’re at at this point, but I’m not as optimistic as you are. This would definitely be one of those instances where I would LOVE to be wrong.

Under 40% popular vote in a two man race — that would be a wipeout!! I don’t drink anymore, but that may be one occasion where I could break that rule :)

And meanwhile Fox can only come up with a 1 point lead, yes I have seen the inside of the poll, nevertheless Fox should give up polling, they just go from one liberal pollster to the next./

And I say this NOT because I just dislike the number but because of their history.

They are either having wool repeatedly pulled over their eyes by different liberal pollsters, or it`s the results they are looking for

$64 question...Romney’s “Coat Tails” on the House and Senate races.

Anyone care to guess?

As the Obama-Titanic sinks, “Women and Children” first has been replaced with “LGBTs, college professors and MSM reporters first”.

Up twenty percent among Independents. Twenty. Two-zero. Veinte for our Spanish-speaking friends. I’m still having trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that Romney is this far ahead. I wasn’t around to see Carter tossed out, but I’m getting the distinct impression that I may be in store for the next best thing.

This is the man that lost to McCain in ‘08?

50/50 Senate with Ryan the tie breaker.

My prediction has been 52/47 Romney since back in August.

I don’t agree with Romney on everything. But Romney is running a very smart campaign. When he wins, I believe there will books written about how his campaign changed how elections are done. I even believe his Big Bird line was to bait Obama into exactly what they are doing. Romney is playing chess. Obama is player checkers (poorly)

Ditto...I was just saying to a buddy of mine that the Big Bird line was bait and Obama fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

This tells me we should be turning all of our donation efforts toward helping borderline Senate candidates win.

Obama is flailing around pathetically as he goes down in flames.

It is like the scene in Kill Bill 2 when Uma Thurman plucks Daryl Hannah’s eye out - Hannah’s previously cool confident character blindly thrashes about screaming, writhing on the floor.
